Zed was one of the first buildings to open up the King/Bathurst corridor to condominium development. An icon of the age was designed. A building that is modern and affordable. Designed by Core Architects, it offers street-level retail, penthouses and a range of suites. Now maturing into itself, Zed stands out as a testament to inspired placement and streamlined architecture. Visit Zed


Located at Yonge and Finch, Dia is developed outside the main Yonge corridor, in a small enclave. Preserving the nature of the old neighbourhood, TAS created a community that incorporates a condominium tower, lofts and townhouses with interior courtyard and garden. This award-winning development designed by Core Architects stands out for its ability to introduce the new and the modern into a traditional neighbourhood while creating a vibrant community of its own.
