When you build your namesake, you have to get it right. Madison Homes’ rising star at 97 Eglinton Avenue East—which Madison Homes has named The Madison—covers all the bases. With great units, an ambitious feature set, subtle contemporary architecture, a grocery store and an outstanding location, the Madison at Yonge and Eglinton is a condo for life.
The project has reached street level with the underground parking structure complete. Concrete will now be poured for the podium before construction begins on the Madison’s 30 and 33-storey all-glass towers. Kirkor Architects’ podium incorporates restrained geometry, with large glazed storefronts along the street to attract passersby to the tower’s retail component—a substantial 40,000 square-foot major grocery store and another 16,000 square feet of two-storey retail.
The Madison, however, doesn’t stop at convenient shopping and an attractive façade. With a large 8th-floor terrace, Madison Homes offers residents a substantial outdoor living area with an opulent sculpture and water feature as the central focal point for relaxing and socializing.A smaller south terrace will feature seating around a central fire pit. The Madison will devote 22,000 square feet to lavish features like a salt-water lap pool, hot tub, cabanas with BBQs, a bar lounge, games room, theatre, 2-storey fitness room, yoga studio and a demonstration kitchen.
The Madison will have 646 units from 510 to 1,045 square feet in size—from one-bedroom starter homes to three-bedroom options for families. Though it’s nicknamed Yonge and Eligible, the neighbourhood offers families a choice of several great schools, tutoring centres and churches. Units will have 9 foot ceilings, plank laminate flooring, ceramics tiles and designer kitchens with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Most units will also have balconies and terraces, as well as individual heating and air conditioning controls.
Having won the 2011 Ontario Home Builders’ Association Award of Distinction for Most Outstanding High or Mid-Rise Condo Suite and the 2011 award for Most Outstanding High-Rise Condo Suite Kitchen, the Madison is all about comfortable and refined living spaces. No matter one’s age, everyone can appreciate a well-conceived condo with great features in an outstanding location. Madison Homes’ namesake condo is a building for life.
