The Vic Towns Location
North York Living
Quiet. Modern. And undeniably stylish. The Vic Towns are the perfect complement to North York’s intimate residential enclave along Victoria Park, which will be a short 10 minute walk to the future Eglinton Crosstown LRT.
Location is Everything
There’s a lot going on in this friendly (and definitely up-and-coming) pocket of North York. It has a wonderful, residential feel, and characterized by mid-century homes and quiet, leafy streets, with rental apartments and new condo developments rounding out the mix.
And the best part is, The Vic Towns aren’t about changing the feel of the neighbourhood – they are specifically designed to complement and enhance it.
Because they’re built by developers who specialize in urban infill projects, they are sensitive to the dynamics and aesthetics of the area, and to the unique needs and preferences of the local population. And because of that, city planners and local residents alike have welcomed the development to the neighbourhood.
They love that the newest addition to their area isn’t a sterile, impersonal glass and steel tower, but a friendly low-rise that sits well in this residential enclave, adding to its warmth and family-friendly charm. There’s a lot to do in the area, too. From great shopping to amazing green spaces, the incredible Aga Khan Museum and the iconic (and always fun) Ontario Science Centre, it’s a terrific, vibrant part of the city that’s only getting better.
Getting Around is Easy
Just minutes from the DVP, this is a location that gives you easy access to any part of the city. And transit access is great too, with frequent buses on the main routes along Eglinton and Victoria Park.
But the best is yet to come – The Vic Towns are steps from the future Eglinton Crosstown, the light rail transit (LRT) line that will be completed by 2021.
The Crosstown – the largest transit expansion in Toronto’s history and a $8.4B initiative – will run along Eglinton Avenue between Mount Dennis (Weston Road) and Kennedy subway station, with 25 stops along the way – and links to 54 bus routes, three subways stations and several GO Transit lines.
Dedicated right-of-way transit lanes separated from regular traffic and priority signaling at intersections will ensure speed and reliability.
Shop, don’t stop
There’s no shortage of retail options in the area – from big brands along the Golden Mile shopping district to designer boutiques, fabulous dining and more at the Shops at Don Mills. You won’t find better shopping anywhere.
Eglinton Square is a 286,000 square foot enclosed shopping centre at Eglinton and Victoria Park. Anchored by the Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart and Metro, it’s both a shopping destination and community hub.
The Eglinton Crosstown will have stops at its east and west ends, at Victoria Park and Pharmacy. Plus, the Cineplex Odeon Eglinton Town Centre Cinemas are right next door.
THE SHOPS AT DON MILLS
Whether you’re shopping for the latest “it” bag or great kids’ clothes, this premium Cadillac Fairview property is the place you’ll find it. The mall features Michael Kors, Anthropologie, Coach, Banana Republic and other popular brands.
And if you’re on the hunt for great food, the options are amazing. There’s delicious dining at Joey or Fabbrica and tasty grab-and-go fare at Mark McEwan’s gourmet food shop, with lots of other eateries to suit your mood and tempt your taste buds. Plus, if you’re looking for healthy, fresh-from-the-farm goodies, check out the summer farmer’s market – it’s on every Tuesday starting in June.
Green Space All Around
The Charles Sauriol Conservation Reserve, located less than a kilometer away, is a green oasis that’s perfect for hiking, walking your dog, or lying on a blanket on a hot, sunny day.
Situated between the Forks of the Don and Lawrence Avenue East, this inviting green space includes the Elevated Wetlands, an experimental water purification project sponsored by the plastics industry.
The conservation area is part of the extensive East Don River Trail system, where you’ll find all kinds of plants, wildlife – and the perfect retreat from the city.

The Vic Towns Frequently Asked Questions
How do I reserve a unit in this project?
After you review the floor plans and prices, if you know what suites you are interested in, you may reserve a suite online using our online reservation worksheet form at https://truecondos.com/worksheet.
Does filling out the worksheet form mean I’m committing to buy a suite?
No it is not a formal commitment, it is an expression of interest and the first step you must take if you are thinking about getting a unit in this project.
What does it mean that Andrew la Fleur is a “Platinum Agent”?
Platinum agents are the top selling agents who get preferred status with developers and first access to new projects before regular agents and the public.
Andrew la Fleur has been a top-selling pre-construction agent since 2007, and during this time he has achieved platinum status with many of the top builders and sales companies in the Greater Toronto Area.
For more information on about Platinum agents see this article: https://truecondos.com/5-things-to-know-about-buying-a-condo-with-a-platinum-vip-realtor-real-estate-agent/
How does it benefit me as a buyer to work with Andrew la Fleur as my Platinum Agent?
Working with me as your Platinum agent gives you several benefits
- You get the highest level of access in the building
- You pay the lowest possible price for the unit (prices are typically increased significantly after the Platinum sales event)
- The best possible incentives
- I do not represent the builder. I represent you. You benefit from my expertise of being a top selling pre-construction agent and investor myself since 2007.
- Access to my personal network of mortgage brokers, lawyers, property management, HST rebate services, handymen and much more.
- My services to you as a buyer are free
Do I get a cooling off period? What is it for?
Yes, after you sign the contract to purchase a suite you will have a standard 10-day cooling off period. It’s 10 calendar days, not business days from the time you sign.
The 10 days are primarily for 2 things: 1) to have a lawyer review your contract with you if you wish and 2) to get a mortgage pre-approval letter
Do I need to have a lawyer?
You don’t need to have a lawyer at the moment that you sign the agreement, however I always recommend that you have a qualified lawyer review your agreement of purchase and sale after you sign and during your 10-day cooling off period.
Not sure who to talk to? Don’t worry – getting a lawyer is something I can help you with. Contact me for more details.
Do I need to have a mortgage pre-approval to buy?
95% of all builders will require you to provide them with proof of financing capability in order to purchase. This is not required before you sign a contract, but it is usually required within 60 days of signing.
Not sure where to begin? Don’t worry – getting a mortgage pre-approval is something that I can help you with. Contact me for more details.
Do the prices include HST?
If you are purchasing for yourself and plan to move in, then yes, prices include the HST and there is nothing you will have to pay at final closing.
If you are purchasing as an investment rental property, then you will have to pay approximately 7.8% of the purchase price as HST on final closing.
This money is remitted to the CRA and as an investor renting out your property you can apply to the CRA immediately to get this money back. It usually takes about 1 month to get your rebate back.
For more information on the HST, see here:
Contact me for more details.
What are my closing costs on a pre-construction condo?
Closing costs on a pre-construction condo will vary greatly depending on the actual purchase price of the unit you are buying, but it also depends on the builder, the city that you are buying in, and the type of unit that you are buying.
Roughly speaking in Toronto you can expect to pay approximately 3-5% of the purchase price in closing costs when purchasing a brand new condo.

Are there any ‘hidden’ costs when buying a pre-construction condo?
No, there are no hidden fees when buying pre-construction condos because all fees must be disclosed in the agreement of purchase and sale. All purchasers have 10 days to review the agreement and have a lawyer advise them on the exact closing cost amounts. If you need a lawyer to help you we can suggest to you to several expert law firms that will review your agreement in detail.
Is it possible to assign my condo? How much is the assignment fee?
Most condo builders do allow you to sell your unit before the building is complete. This projcess is called selling by “assignment”.
There is usually an assignment fee and a legal fee associated with selling. Costs can range from $1000-7000. Contact me for more details.
