Rising a staggering 50 storeys on Grenville Street, just one block north of Carlton Street, the Karma Condos is a classically designed glass-clad tower with a cantilever podium encompassing two floors of world-class amenities.
The project comes from developers CentreCourt Developments and Lifetime Developments, in conjunction with award-winning architectural firm architectsAlliance (1Thousand Bay, Burano Condominiums). The building's interesting design includes a barcode graphic printed on the tower’s Yonge Street-facing glass, and its high retail windows facing Grenville Street. Karma Condos is also flanked by a heritage house to its east, and a heritage facade of the apartment to its west.
The Karma Condos were the fastest selling project in 2011, and donated $5 to the Ronald McDonald House, Wellspring, or Sketch for each unique registration on its site.
World renowned interior design team Cecconi Simone offers designer finishes for each of the 495 carefully laid out suites, which range in size from 277 square feet for a studio to 819 square feet for a three bedroom suite.
Karma Condos derives its name from the Buddhist doctrine of moral causation, with a strive towards virtue, or "good karma." For CentreCourt Developments and Lifetime Developments, the philosophy of the Karma Condos is about finding your place in the city.
Proximity to transit, restaurants, shops, grocery, parks, universities, and government hubs -- this is the allure of the Karma Condos. Located on a quiet road just north of Carlton Street, 21 Grenville Street straddles Bay Street and Yonge Street at an equal distance, giving access to both major streets within minutes. Work and play in this lively neighbourhood, just steps from College Park, Ryerson University, and Queen's Park. Restaurants along Yonge Street, Church Street, and College Street offer a myriad of choices, while Yonge-Dundas Square, the Eaton Centre, Bloor Street, and Yorkville provide the sights and sounds of the city. The Financial District, Entertainment District, and the Art Gallery of Ontario are only a short transit ride or leisurely walk away.
