2015 was a year of great success and change for Art Shoppe Lofts + Condos, as we made our debut into the Toronto condo market. From Lego installations, to grand openings, a visit from Karl Lagerfeld and starting construction, these were just some of our year’s biggest highlights.
The Art of Lego
We introduced ourselves to the Yonge and Eglinton neighbourhood this year with a super-size Lego installation in the window of our presentation gallery. 60 hours and over 20,000 custom Lego bricks later, the team of two revealed our first transformation. The finished product of our colourful logo was a work of art, and remained on display until construction began in Fall 2015.
Welcome to the Art of Change
As one of the most buzzed about condo developments in 2015, the opening of our Presentation Gallery at 2131 Yonge Street gave Toronto its first look at the Art of Change. Inspired by modern art museums, our gallery featured soaring ceilings and contemporary ambiance. Floor-to-ceiling graphics, interactive presentations, and original artwork by Toronto artist Thrush Holmes contributed to the gallery-feel of the space.
Lobbies by Karl Trends in Toronto
With the announcement of lobbies by Karl Lagerfeld at Art Shoppe Loft + Condos, the building is set to make a lasting impression on the neighborhood. The style icon himself joined us in Toronto for his very first Canadian appearance to celebrate the launch of #LobbiesByKarl – his first foray into residential design in Canada. The exclusive red carpet event attracted the city’s most stylish residents and became a trending topic on Twitter.
The Art of Success
With sales reaching over 90% by summer, a pre-construction celebration party was in order. Food and drinks from some of the neighbourhood’s most notable venues including Le Vecchia, Edo, the Burger Cellar, Uncle Bettys, and BarChef, plus music by DJ Lady Frequency meant we closed out the Presentation Gallery with a hot summer party to thank our neighbours, team, and future residents before the demolition trucks rolled in.
