We believe that the history of a place can also influence its future. Respecting the community and its legacy while looking ahead to create a place that considers how we live in a modern world. This is what positive urban design is all about. That’s why we’ve integrated ground floor retail seamlessly with residential living and then set it back from the street to create more public meeting places. Places where you get to know your neighbours and be a part of the community.
Positive urban design is also about nurturing people at every stage of life by creating homes designed to embrace diversity. That’s why the terraced design of Platform thoughtfully integrates a variety of homes, for a wide range of people, rather than one home type. The overall form is brought together with brick work that is both modern and reflective of the neighbourhood’s industrial roots, creating an architecturally interesting building that respects both community and landscape.
A great community is one that facilitates the lifestyles of a diverse group of people at varying stages of life. However, this can only be accomplished through diverse housing types and that’s exactly what we’ve done at Platform. Contained within one urban design concept, Platform features ground floor junior 1 bedrooms, townhomes, 1-3 bedroom condos, and live-work lofts. Whether you’re upsizing, downsizing, a young entrepreneur, or a growing family, Platform has homes that are thoughtfully designed to consider your life.
Inspired by the industrial movement made famous in today’s revitalized urban neighbourhoods, the bold interiors at Platform deliver on both design and comfort. The use of industrial colour tones and natural materials delivers a highly elevated experience that just feels right.
Platform is successful in creating both a design statement in the community while being respectful of its roots. On the exterior you’ll find a mixture of heritage style brick work with black window mullions and balcony railings. The building is made modern with white frames, that lighten the overall form, and large window panels, which provide ample light to each and every home. The end result is a strong and timeless building that embraces progressive urban living while creating a sense of character.
In every home you’ll find features you wouldn’t expect to find unless you were paying for optional upgrades. Items like Aragon’s signature reclaimed brick wall, a linear electric fireplace, and 5” wide engineered hardwood plank flooring turn these homes into something truly unique. The ceilings are a minimum 9’ with double height ceilings in the live-work lofts.
As one of the most important rooms in the home, Aragon has thoughtfully considered every aspect of the kitchen. From ergonomics to efficiency and from aesthetics to durability, these kitchens deliver.
