The Modern Set to Break Ground
The Modern on Richmond is set to break ground on construction this month. June 24th will be the official ground-breaking ceremony. This is great news. The Modern started selling right at the peak of the insanity surrounding the pre-construction condo market in Toronto and it was actually the same month as 1 Bloor East – November 2007. So it has been a long 19 months for purchasers who have been patiently waiting and wondering when this project would get off the ground (or under it!).
Originally The Modern was scheduled to occupy in March of 2010. With construction set to begin shortly, that date will likely be pushed back significantly. That may be shocking to some, but in actual fact it is far better than the current state of several other projects downtown which were also launched in Q4 2007Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â – Q1 2008 and have yet to break ground.
The Modern is about 80% sold out but there are some good units still available with pricing in and around the low to mid $400s per square foot. In my opinion, the Modern has some of the best floor plans in the city and the standard features are quite good. Several of my own clients have purchased in this project.
