Westbend Residences by Mattamy Homes, Bloor St. West, Toronto

Project Overview

 

Westbend Residences by Mattamy Homes checks most of the boxes that I like to see ticked off while evaluating pre-construction properties. Reputed builders, one-bedroom to three-bedroom apartments packed with useful amenities, a hop, jump and skip away from High Park & Bloor West – all at a relative steal.

 

 

What more could you ask for?

 

 

Located off the intersection of Keele Street & Bloor Street West – 1660 Bloor St. West, Toronto, ON M6P 1A8 – it’s a beautiful, modern, 13-story building packed with all the essential amenities that make for comfortable living. If you rely on public transit systems, you should have no complaints. Not only are the High Park & Runnymeade stations supremely accessible but you’re just a 3-minute walk away to the Keele Street Subway station, a 5-minute walk to the nearest streetcar stop & an 11-minute walk to the Bloor GO Express Station! 

 

On one side, there’s nature – with access to high park & all the life it has to offer. On the other side, you have the city – with shopping centers and restaurants or entertainment hubs. Embrace your green side, put on your get-shi*-done hat, and finish your chores or choose to be a tourist in your own city. If you’re living at Westbend Residences, it’s all possible!

 

Mattamy Homes is one of the largest and most well-reputed private building groups in North America. Champions of diversity & inclusion, the group has received multiple awards earning them recognition from the industry. Since 2001, they have won a record number of 8 Homebuilder Of The Year awards.

– Prime location; nearly as accessible as a transit hub and neatly enveloped within nature and urban energy

Neighbourhood / Transit

 

This is a prime location in every sense of the word. Everything you need is close by and accessible – transit routes, parks, entertainment hubs, shopping centers – it’s all right there!

The two towers will also share a centrally-located lobby that will have pedestrian access from Dawes Road and a passenger drop-off/car entrance from Guest Avenue to the west. When it comes to public transportation, Dawes Condos is nearly unbeatable with its Rider’s Paradise Transit Score of 93. In just 8 minutes by foot, condo residents can walk to the Main Street Line 2 TTC subway station, allowing them to commute downtown in just 36 minutes.

Conversely, residents can also walk to the nearby Danforth GO Station in the same amount of time, allowing for downtown commutes of just 23 minutes.

And, other than use bus routes found throughout the neighbourhood, residents can opt to use a vehicle and drive downtown in just 22 minutes or the Beaches neighbourhood in just 11 minutes.

Wide-ranging in its influence, fully-encompassing in its convenience, awe-inspiring in its luxurious design — this east-end condominium has it all, making it the ideal home for new families and the ideal investment for savvy investors.

PRE-CONSTRUCTION CONDO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The process to buying pre-construction condos can be quite rushed. When you register with us for a project, we’ll reach out to you to get your specifics, so it’s good to know in advance the type of unit you’re looking for and your budget. If you register ahead of the sales launch and are serious about buying, we will get you to fill out a builder suite request worksheet.
We are unable to guarantee that the suite you request will be allocated to you and your agent. Many pre-construction sales launches are extremely competitive and fast-paced. To increase your odds of receiving an allocation it is best to be flexible on the type of suite, floor and exposure that you have requested. You are also in no way obligated to purchase the suite you’ve been allocated.
The deposit structure on pre-construction condos will vary from project to project but generally breaks down like this:

$5,000 on signing
balance to 5% in 30 days
5% in 60-90 days
5% in 120-270 days
5% on occupancy
Getting a lawyer, preferably one who is familiar with pre-construction contracts, is never a bad idea. We would encourage our clients to have a real estate lawyer review their Agreement of Purchase and Sale during the Cooling Off period. If you need help finding a lawyer, we can introduce you to our lawyer who handles many of our pre-construction clients.
On closing, which is three to four years after signing, you will need to pay closing costs. As with any property purchase you will have to pay:

• Legal fees (about $1,500-$2,000)
• Municipal & Provincial Land Transfer Tax (this will depend on the price of the property–use our Land Transfer Tax calculator )

In addition to these, pre-construction closing costs also include:

• Development charges (these vary per project depending on the unit type but can range from $5,000-$12,000)
• HST (for investors, which can be rebated back up to $24,000)
By submitting a worksheet, you increase your chances of getting your preferred suite. In essence, it is a suite request sheet. It shows the condo developer that there are interested buyers. Agents are then allocated suites based on the worksheets they submit.

Many pre-construction launches are fast-paced and extremely competitive with buildings selling out in 24 hours. In these launches a suite request worksheet submission is necessary to ensure that you actually have a possibility of receiving the suite you’d like (but this is never guaranteed).

You are not guaranteed to receive the suite you request and you are also in no way obligated to buy the suite you’ve been allocated.
Pierre’s expertise in Toronto’s pre-construction condo market has earned him Platinum Broker status among Toronto’s top developers. This means that when you buy or invest with the Pierre Carapetian Group team, you have your pick of the best floor plans and the lowest pricing available.We represent you, not the builder and we will always guide you towards projects that we believe are a good investment and have great resale value.
Yes. As we mentioned, the process to buying pre-construction can be quite competitive and rushed. After you’ve signed an Agreement of Purchase and Sale with the builder you are given ten days to look over the contract and ensure everything looks good for you. Keep in mind, the cooling off period is ten consecutive days, not ten business days.
You won’t need a mortgage pre-approval right away, but it is always best to speak to your mortgage professional so that you fully understand your borrowing power.

You will however need a Mortgage Letter that states upon the building taking occupancy you will be able to afford and carry the property. Typically this is required within the first 30 days of signing. It is always a good idea to get a mortgage pre-approval in the beginning of your real estate journey so that you know how much you can afford.
This will depend on whether you are buying as an end user (planning to live there) or an investor. In Ontario, there are two types of HST Rebates in place for newly built properties.

If you are buying as an end user, typically the Ontario HST rebate is assigned to the builder directly upon closing, allowing the builder to essentially pay the cost of the HST from your purchase.

If you are buying as an investor, you must pay the HST upfront at closing and have your lawyer file for a full HST rebate, refunded 4 to 6 weeks later provided they have a one year lease in place.
