Photos of The Hive Lofts by Symmetry Developments

The Hive Lofts

The Hive Lofts in Etobicoke are almost complete… and boy are they looking sweet! For this weeks Photo Friday I ventured out to the Hive and snapped a few photos from inside and out.  Designed by Teeple Architects, the 6 storey boutique building is home to only 18 units.  Ranging in size from 523 sq.ft. for a one bedroom to almost 1,300 sq.ft. for a two bedroom suite, the loft stands out (in the best of ways) from anything else near by.  Wrapped in a bold and dark zinc cladding – the Hive is pretty much the Bat-mobile of condo livings… ya, it’s that good!The Hive Lofts by Symmetry Developments

… and if you think it’s curves are something to look at, just wait until you see it straight on!

I was lucky enough to get a private tour with Sayf Hassan (principle developer at Symmetry Developments) of their custom designed, two bedroom unit on the 5th floor.  At almost 1300 sq.ft. the loft features a south facing wrap around terrace (with gas hook-up), a 10 foot long quartz island, and a custom designed/imported Italian kitchen!

My long time love affair with The Hive Lofts in Etobicoke, grows stronger everyday. On a recent drive through the area, that flame was reignited further!

There’s no bigger heart break to a condo junkie like my self, than when a developer strays away from their original design. Thankfully, progress at the Hive is looking just like originally planned. While in the area I snapped a few pics of it’s “bones”.

Symmetry Developments (the team behind The Hive) is coming fresh off a win from the 2013 TUDA (Toronto Urban Design Awards) for it’s vision with the Linea Bayview Townhomes in North York… with the way things are progressing at The Hive, I’m almost certain more awards are in their near future!

Sayf Hassan, lead at Symmetry Developments gave me the latest scoop on what’s next for the project – “We’re close to roof topping, structural stud work has begun and the windows are being site measured for an October delivery.  Cladding should be arriving in October as well.”

The Honey in the Hive

The busy bees at BuzzBuzzHome have whipped up another cool feature!  Keeping with the apidae theme (that’s nerd talk for bee) they’ve just launched the “Hive” .  It’s basically a forum for discussing preconstruction projects in the City and is also available in Calgary and Vancouver.  I think this is an amazing idea and a great middle ground for Developer, Consumer and Realtor to meet. It brings the 3 parties together in an informal way to discuss, demystify discover more about a particular project. As more people join in on the conversation, the story of the condo can be better documented from start to finish thanks to this evolution from BuzzBuzzHomes.

To access the Hive, click on your desired preconstruction condo and select “Enter the Hive.”  From there you’ll be able to view prices, unit sizes and even other developments in the area (plus a ton more).  To comment on the project, scroll down to the bottom and buzzzz away!  Here’s my thoughts on Casa Condo, by Cresford.  Being the shutter bug that I am, I naturally love the ability the site has to upload photos!

Once you’ve found that perfect project and are ready to take the next step give me a call…i’d love to help!
