Construction in Concert

Did you know that Concert is currently constructing over 1,400 rental and condominium homes between Vancouver, Victoria and Toronto?

Axis, Concert’s 15-storey rental community at the University of British Columbia will be “topped off” later this month. For those not familiar with the term, a building has been topped off when all the concrete floor and roof slabs having been poured. At Concert this milestone is celebrated with a topping off party for tradespeople and consultants.

Motion, Concert’s 29-storey rental development on Bay and Dundas Streets in downtown Toronto was also recently topped off.

Construction on One32 Berkeley, a 10-storey rental community in downtown Toronto has now reached grade whereas Salt, Concert’s 33-storey highrise in downtown Vancouver is now above grade.

The site is being prepared for excavation at Era, Concert’s 16-storey condominium development in downtown Victoria.

More than two thirds the floors have now been poured on The Berczy, a 13-storey condominium located in Toronto’s historic downtown St. Lawrence neighbourhood.

At Blythwood at Huntington – Concert and Tridel’s 10-storey condominium development in the Lawrence Park neighbourhood of Toronto – construction is now at grade.

88 Scott – stylish & sought-after

Concert’s 88 Scott condominium development in the heart of downtown Toronto has proven a sought-after success. And in this fall’s 2012 ARIDO (Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario) Awards of Excellence, the 88 Scott Sales Centre won the Award of Merit.

In creating the 88 Scott Sales Centre, designers Kelly Cray & Christianne Celotti of UNION31 drew upon the same Canadian Moderne style that inspired the interiors of the suites.

“Canadian Moderne is an aesthetic grounded in the use of ‘raw’ materials, organic textures and earthy colors, elements we can all relate to” describes UNION31 partner and creative principal Kelly Cray. “88 Scott is contemporary design at its best, urban and sophisticated but also approachable”.

88 Scott’s interior styling is just one of many reasons behind the development’s sales success; despite challenging market conditions, since its introduction to the market just five months ago, over 60% of homes within this 479-home development have now been sold. To learn more about what sets 88 Scott apart, including the prime downtown location straddling the boarder of the city’s financial district and historic St. Lawrence neighbourhood, visit www.88Scott.com or drop by the award-winning Sales Centre at 100 Yonge Street.

Building with Habitat for Humanity

Concert’s Toronto team pitched in for the ninth year in a row this fall to help build homes for Habitat for Humanity. The team of 13 contributed to a home for a very deserving recipient – a single mother with a son suffering from multiple disabilities.

These efforts are part of Concert CommunityWorks, the handle we’ve assigned to the numerous charitable activities and events that we undertake to support the communities in which we work, live and build.

Habitat for Humanity helps low-income families build and buy simple, decent quality affordable homes. This not only helps to provide available housing for families in need, it enables low-income families to build assets, reduce their dependence on other forms of social assistance and break the cycle of poverty.

UDI Awards recognize Tapestry

On Friday, October 26 the UDI Pacific Region hosted its biennial ‘Awards for Excellence’. The awards given during this black tie gala recognize outstanding urban development projects in British Columbia.

Concert was pleased to have been called to the stage to receive the Best Mid-Rise Residential Award for Tapestry at Wesbrook Village – the third in a series of unique Tapestry-branded Retirement Communities.

“With Tapestry at Wesbrook Village, our vision was to create a seniors residence that enhances lifestyles by integrating the development and its residents with the surrounding campus community, focusing on new heights in terms of sustainability and including amenities and services on par with those of a five-star hotel,” said Concert’s President, Brian McCauley. “It is an honour to have our efforts acknowledged with such a sought-after award.”

Tapestry at Wesbrook Village joins Concert’s first two Tapestry Retirement Communities – at Arbutus Walk in Vancouver and Village Gate West in Etobicoke – as an award-winning community.

Next stop on the awards circuit for Concert will be the 2012 FRPO Awards which will recognize the best in Ontario’s rental housing industry later this month. Fingers will once again be firmly crossed.


   Founded in 1989, Concert specializes in developing rental apartments, condominium homes and retirement communities, acquiring and developing commercial, industrial and infrastructure properties and in property management. With operations in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario and the backing of more than 200,000 Canadians represented by the union and management pension plans who own Concert, our commitment is to build strong, sustainable communities across Canada.
