Old School Meets New School at King George in Historic Newmarket
Located at 400 Park Avenue, the old King George Public School is being re-developed by the Rose Corporation and will be transformed into King George School Lofts & Town Homes, revitalizing a historical legacy in Newmarket’s quaint downtown.
The restoration will consist of 11 condominium lofts within the old school building surrounded by 14 two-storey freehold town homes set within a lush perimeter of 100-year-old trees, century old heritage buildings and iconic historic landmarks. Loft homes range from 650 to 1400 sq. ft. while town homes offer approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of magnificent living space.
Meticulously designed by renowned Yorkville architectural firm Audax, the design is a hybrid of Victorian, Edwardian and Contemporary in honour of the school and the surrounding neighbourhood. Under the design leadership of Gianpiero Pugliese, the architects at Audax have applied a design approach they call Human Architecture, which combines the best elements of traditional architecture with a modern aesthetic.
Residents will be able to walk to Main Street in Old Newmarket and enjoy living steps away from alluring shops and boutiques, charming cafes and restaurants and delightful parks. With Newmarket GO train and YRT/VIVA just steps away and the 404 and 400 series of highways close by, the location is a commuter’s dream.
King George School Lofts & Town Homes will soon be open for sale. Until then, the public is urged to register to receive exclusive information about the sales process and the presentation centre grand opening. Registrations are being handled at www.LiveAtKingGeorge.com.
