Tridel MRKT

Hi All,

Has anyone taken a look at this project, curious thoughts from this board.

My initial take

Tridel: Great Builder
Location: Downtown, but not prime downtown (decent walk to subway)
Price: Have not seen floor plans or pricing yet


https://www.tridel.com/mrkt/?utm_source ... paign=mrkt

I will most likely stay away unless the pricing and floor plans are unrealistically good.

Similar thoughts. While Tridel is a decent builder, they always seem to price much higher than the brand warrants (although most of their projects that I recall looking at were not in prime locations, so /sqft pricing was still lower than DT). Location is... ok. but not prime by any measure.

I think this area is prime for revitalization in the next 10-20 years.

its definitely a 10 year project. not sure $ 1200sqft is justified for this area

Floor plans are pretty good! Tridel is a very good builder and their value retains

Prices are high!

Similar to prices at The Well multi complex of retail, office, food market, restaurants, residential ($1200 psf)
Definitely not in the comparable neighbourhood of King West/Entertainment District. This is a gentrification area for sure

Anyone thinking of getting a unit?

Tridel is a great builder, and longer term even their older buildings stand great.

My only thing is I'd prefer Tridel for living vs investing because they're typically in the higher end.

That being said, I purchased 3 properties within the last month, so I'm tapped out for now either way....

I am hearing floor plans look good, floor plans look bad.

What are you looking at specifically to make a building have good floor plans?

Alot of factors, some are:

1. Wasted sq ft space by long, useless hallways: can't use them apart from walking but still paying for the maintenance :)
2. Exposure to natural light. Everyone wants a lot of windows & light.
Anything that has windows in the living room and then internal bedrooms with clear/frosted doors to get light in is bad IMO (hate those)
Reduces the unit's exposure to light, making it dark and appear smaller
3. Random shapes of the rooms like curves or sharp corners where it's hard to place furniture, wasted sq ft and the only thing you can do is put a plant there

Not necessarily "layout" but part of the floor plan: exposure of the unit (South and West facing most popular due to sun exposure) and their views
