Mastercraft Starwood plans Soho Parkway Condominiums first Ottawa project to
be built with boutique hotel design standards

TORONTO, Sept. 16 /CNW/ - Mastercraft Starwood have partnered with Gluckstein Design and Metropolitan Hotels to bring the first condominium project designed using boutique hotel standards and protocols - SoHo Parkway Condominiums - to Ottawa, Ontario. Located at 201 Parkdale Avenue, the 16-story, 100,000 sq-ft condominium will consist of 94 suites. The building is scheduled to break ground June 2010 and set for completion in December 2011. Mastercraft Starwood has developed, constructed, acquired and managed over 10,000 homes, townhouses, condominiums and hotels throughout Canada with a market value over $1.5 billion. The company will work with Roderick Lahey Architect Inc. to build the 16-story structure made of glass, aluminium and granite.

"After developing two successful boutique hotel projects in Canada," said Mastercraft Starwood, president, Bruce Greenberg, "we saw the benefit of leveraging hotel design standards to build better condominiums. The exacting criteria used lead to high quality materials, durability and a timeless design. We end up with well thought out living spaces, with a lot of style and flair. "

With the award-winning Gluckstein Design and its principal and celebrity designer Brian Gluckstein heading the SoHo Parkway's dream team of hotel designers, each suite will be outfitted with nine foot ceilings with floor-to-ceiling SoHo window walls, spa-inspired bathrooms, Silestone countertops, glass ceramic tile backsplashes, European AEG appliances and designer kitchens.

Homeowners will benefit from access to the Rooftop Club that offers a sundeck, hot tub and outdoor kitchen and BBQ. The property's Dalton Brown Gym features state-of-the-art equipment and is managed by the two time heavy-weight champion. SoHo Parkway also includes a private theatre, boasting a high-definition projector and 7.1 surround sound. Condo owners will enjoy the building's bike ramp, providing direct access to the street. Each owner will also receive a one year Vrtu car service membership. The condominiums will be managed by the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel, which will award each owner with a SoHo Black Card membership. This automatically entitles each homeowner to an array of luxury hotel services. Members will enjoy benefits at other Metropolitan Hotels in Toronto and Vancouver and up to ten nights a year of free hotel rooms for three years.

"We're thrilled to be part of a project spearheading the best in design, architecture and service," said Henry Wu, president, Metropolitan Hotels. "SoHo Parkway Condominiums is designed for a cosmopolitan city and intended for the adventurous at heart." Located in Canada's capital city, SoHo Parkway Condominiums overlooks the beautiful Ottawa riverfront and downtown cityscape. Minutes to Wellington Village, Hintonburgh, Westboro Village and the Parliament Hill, SoHo-dwellers will enjoy easy access to charming boutique shops, local art galleries and nature cycling on the Capitol Parkway's endless bike trails.
