The-Grid-Lofts-Ottawa Condos For Sale.jpg

Modbox Developments has released the new floor plans and pricing on it’s latest project. The Grid Lofts is located at 92 Stonehurst, just north of Scott (and East of Parkdale), and is a perfect mix of hard and soft loft.. There are only six units, all two bedrooms (the penthouse also has a den) ranging from 1,067sqft up to 1,640sqft (not including outdoor spaces). Prices are not publicly published, however they start from the mid 500’s. They are looking at a target occupancy of summer 2020.

Features include:
- private ensuite elevators
- soaring 10ft. ceilings
- Fisher & Paykel appliances (refrigerator, gas range, double-drawer dishwasher
- ensuite bathrooms featuring custom walk-around shower and free-standing soaker tub
- ideal location, short walk to two major LRT stops
- panoramic rooftop terrace (shared)
- across from Laroche Park

One thing we know is that the design and execution is going to be top notch. We have not seen one project that Modbox/Linebox has been involved with that didn’t get us excited.

“ Hard lofts are once-functional factories or warehouses that have been transformed into an expansive dwelling with natural materials and exposed surfaces. Contemporary soft lofts offer high ceilings, large windows, and open concept floor plans with softer detailing, concealed ducts, plumbing and electrical services.  The Grid Lofts offer the best of both worlds-an entirely new building with the elements of true hard lofts plus the comforts and efficiencies of well-built, modern dwellings.”

Interested? You can now reserve a unit with a $5000 reservation deposit until the Agreement of Purchase and Sale is finalized in the next two weeks, at which point clients will have a 10 day rescission period to ensure all questions are answered to their satisfaction.

The Grid Lofts - Coming Soon - Previously Mechanicsville Lofts

With no information other than "coming soon", Modbox is getting ready to launch The Grid, which will be located at 92 Stonehurst in Mechanicsville. We had reported earlier this year that Mechanicsville Lofts, which had been put on hold to allow the team to promote St Charles Market (which has seen strong sales) and would be revamped and relaunched this summer. 

The project is expected to do well, especially considering the team behind it (Modbox + Linebox), the location, and with the current demand for modern, quality, loft product in the city.

Project Update - Mechanicsville Lofts

Originally designed as a low-rise six-unit development located at 92 Stonehurst in Mechanicsville, the project is currently getting revamped and will be re-launched this summer. Originally set for a 2017 completion, Mechanicsville Lofts took a back seat to its sister project on Beechwood - St. Charles Market. With the strong sales that St. Charles Market has seen, it has allowed the teams at Modbox to shift back to getting M-Lofts prepared. With no exact date yet, you can expect the re-launch for sometime in June. 

St Charles Market - Sales Update

ModBox is the sister company to Linebox Studio which is the Architect of the project and the creative behind the design. The building is set for completion 2017 with construction to start this summer.

Units start at $550,000 with sizes ranging from 1114sqft to 1745sqft. Each unit has a few different layout choices allowing the buyer a two-bedroom layout, one bedroom plus den layout, or a fully open concept layout (depending on the unit).

Unit features include 10'6" ceilings with radiant-heated polished concrete floors, high-end custom millwork, and direct access elevators into each unit. Parking is covered, above ground, and very limited - however with the central location it might not be necessary.

The building will feature a large rooftop terrace that has been designed specifically for entertaining and relaxing, with panoramic views looking over Laroche Park and of the downtown skyline.

"The Mechanicsville Lofts are inspired by the true hard lofts of New York City and the contemporary soft lofts of Toronto and Montreal. Hard lofts are spaces that were once a functional factory or warehouse and then transformed into an expansive dwelling with rugged detailing and exposed services. Contemporary soft lofts refine this concept with softer detailing, concealed ducts, plumbing and electrical services. Both versions offer high ceilings, big windows, and open concept floor plans.

Mechanicsville Lofts offers the best of both worlds: an entirely new build with all the elements of true hard lofts plus the comforts and efficiencies of well-built, modern dwellings. Building features include soaring 10'-6" ceiling heights, radiant-heated polished concrete floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, high-end custom millwork, open floor plans, and secure elevators that open directly into each unit. A large rooftop terrace overlooks Laroche Park and Ottawa’s Parliament Buildings. All this to give to you the hard loft life."

Two units both with the open-concept layout. Numerous layouts per unit are available for the buyer to choose from.

Minto's Vibe Wins at 2015 Ottawa Urban Design Awards

Minto's Vibe Ottawa Condo

Last night Minto's Vibe condominium took home the Award of Merit in Urban Infill for Mid to High Rise building at the 2015 Ottawa Urban Design Awards. Located at 118 Holmwood, it is the first of two towers for Minto at the new Lansdowne centre in the Glebe. The Vibe is fully sold out and only select units are still available in phase two.

The Jury had this to say about the project:

GW: The building marks a departure from one neighbourhood type to the retail/sports focus of Lansdowne Park. The two storey retail base is noteworthy.

CP: The Vibe drew a lot of discussion for its self conscious attempt to create activity in the body of the building itself. I found it unnecessary considering that the base could have benefitted from more care, variety, openness and public space. However the building is really the gateway building to Lansdowne Park and as such is a critical piece of the overall urban revitalization. Its merits are in its density and mixed use programme. Its secondary role as an entry beacon to the Park seems to temper and give value to the eclectic nature of the execution. It contributes to the destination character of the site.

Other winners include Modbox Developments and Linebox Studio for its collection of three modern town homes on Springfield in Lindenlea, winning the Award of Merit for Urban Infill Low Rise.
