GETTING TO KNOW: TRICAR’S GORDON SQUARE CONDOMINIUMS 

INTERVIEW BY CAI SEPULIS; RENDERINGS PROVIDED BY TRICAR 

THE REGION’S CONDO MARKET IS BOOMING – AND NOWHERE IS THIS MORE APPARENT THAN IN THE ROYAL CITY. FOR THE PAST DECADE, ONTARIO DEVELOPER TRICAR HAS BEEN INVESTING IN GUELPH WITH PHENOMENAL HIGH-RISE CONDOMINIUM PROJECTS – FIRST IN DOWNTOWN GUELPH WITH ITS RIVER HOUSE AND RIVER MILL COMMUNITIES, AND NOW IN SOUTH GUELPH WITH ITS AMBITIOUS GORDON SQUARE INITIATIVE. 

A MASTER PLANNED COMMUNITY FEATURING OVER FORTY PERCENT GREEN SPACE (INCLUDING PARKETTES, WATER FEATURES, FLOWERING BUSHES, TREES, AND MORE), GORDON SQUARE PROMISES TO BE AN IDYLLIC DESTINATION FOR THE CONDO SEEKER. RECENTLY, WE SAT DOWN WITH JEN GROZELLE, MARKETING & MEDIA MANAGER AT TRICAR, TO FIND OUT MORE. 

WHO IS THE IDEAL AUDIENCE FOR GORDON SQUARE? 
One segment of the market that we’re appealing to are active downsizers who love to travel (when the world re-opens), or spend more time at a cottage, or enjoy any number of road trips. The condo lifestyle gives them freedom to lock the door and leave without having to worry about their home. With that said, first time home buyers and young professionals will also be keen to move here as buying a new condo affords them the opportunity to choose their own floor plan at a price they can afford, select their own finishes, and not worry about getting into a competitive offer situation that often takes place in a re-sale transaction. 

WHAT DIFFERENTIATES TRICAR AS A BUILDER? 
Tricar has a solid reputation in Southwestern Ontario for delivering excellent architectural design as well as a high luxury level of finishes to the suites and common areas of their buildings. From the moment you enter a Tricar building, the sophistication and attention to detail is evident. Our superior customer service has been recognized over and over in our being named six-time finalist and three-time winner of Tarion’s Ontario High Rise Builder of the Year Award. 

WHAT MAKES GORDON SQUARE AN IDEAL LOCATION?
Our marketing message from the start was deliberate and authentic: ‘Location is Everything and Everything is Here.’ At Gordon Square you can walk (if you choose) to convenient amenities like groceries, banking, and pharmacy. Entertainment and dining are close too: at the Cineplex, library, restaurants, and bars. South Guelph is also rich in parks and trails. And Gordon Square is about as close to the 401 as you can get in the Royal City. 

WHY IS THIS REGION SO HOT FOR DEVELOPERS? 
Guelph has city amenities and services without all the metropolis headaches. It’s close enough to Toronto for commuters, while still offering great value. It has its own culture that locals are passionate about, and to those new to the community it’s a friendly and welcoming place. 

GORDON SQUARE’S PHASE TWO IS NOW SELLING. CAN YOU DESCRIBE WHAT FOLKS CAN EXPECT?
Phase Two at Gordon Square features predominately one- and two-bedroom condos – with or without a den. The building will feature a fitness studio, guest suite, golf simulator, and expansive sky lounge on the thirteenth floor featuring panoramic views of the countryside to the south. It will also offer abundant outdoor space – from terraces to parkettes to walking trails. Construction of Phase Two is already under way and we expect our first homeowners to move in during the Spring of 2022. 

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE OUR READERS TO KNOW?
We are excited to welcome everyone to our new spectacular on-site sales office located at 1886 Gordon Street, just south of Clair Road.
