Lifestyles are changing, so too must the way homes are built, says Adi Development Group’s CEO\nLooking out from the swanky, seventh floor head office of ADI Development Group on Burloak St just north of the QEW, you can see instantly how Burlington has changed and is growing substantially.\n I’m there to interview Tariq Adi, CEO, who you could argue is one of the main architects of this change. Adi, an established builder of several Burlington projects, is now set to expand to other sites in the GTA.\n Indeed, so far the story of Adi has paralleled the story of Burlington. The developer recognized early that downtown Burlington has so much potential, and enjoying success by building condo projects including Nautique, a 28-storey luxury lakefront project.\n Says Adi of all the changes: “Burlington was (originally) designed for the vehicle when people lived (and cocooned) in the suburbs, with a backyard, the fence, the driveway. That’s all Burlington was.”\n “We came in to introduce affordable condo living, especially on the waterfront, with tight-knit, high-density,walkable communiities.\n While new to some, it’s what Adi has been preaching for a long time, home buyers are clamouring for a more urban style of living — lavish\n amenities, nicely landscaped open spaces and features such as dog parks and car-sharing.\n And it’s not just the millennials, it’s the baby boomers and empty-nesters that want this lifestyle too.,\n “I’m seeing it first-hand,” says Adi, pointing to both downtown Toronto and New York city as examples. Seeing is believing, so we depart\n from the head office on a tour of three Adi sites, on what turns out to be a very blustery, cold March day.\n The idea is to not only visit a few model homes, but get a sense of what lifestyles these new home sites can provide.\n First up is Station West, a master- planned community connected to a large central park and steps from the Aldershot GO Station. It is designed with the modern young professional commuter in mind.\n If an ultra modern vibe is what propels you, the smart, open concept townhomes in a variety of floor plans will provide it. “If I could put everything around transit I would do it,” says Adi, as a nod to how transit-oriented development is taking hold.\n The stacked townhome development, with 233 suites, has an estimated occupancy of December 2019 with a handful of townhomes available\n now and a new release anticipated for this spring.\n Next up is LINK Condos + Towns. There’s a unique, contemporary design to the buildings — a geometric matrix of cubes linked together\n by glass walkways — that make a statement. Ditto for the indulgent amenities, including a European-style courtyard and close access to upscale cafés and boutiques at the corner of Dundas and Sutton.\n Here it’s all about the amenities, including fully equipped gym with a view of the adjacent Bronte Creek Provincial Park.\n The third stop on the tour is Adi’s latest project, the Valera and V2 where a new sales office opened this month. The plan is to add a 10-storey, ultramodern condo offering serene views of the Niagara Escarpment, complete with all the latest in home automation and security features.\n Three sites, three stories to tell, each pointing to how lifestyles are changing. And it’s not lost on Adi that that this is “what works, this is what people want, “what he calls “a New York city style of living.”\n And it’s a formula that he believes is repeatable, which has Adi developing two new sites outside of Burlington, both in Toronto.\nThey are:\n • At Portland St, and Adelaide St. described as a unique 15-storey, boutique-style condo building with ‘a cool design.’ Adi is planning to launch in the fall subject to “heritage-related approvals.”\n • At 64 Prince Arthur and Bedford, which Adi pledges to be ‘skinny and tall in a beautifully sculpted way.’ An original 29-storey design is now\n being modified to a lower height in the 20s so as to fit into the surrounding neighbourhood, he says.
