EllisDon Developments partners with SMEG Canada to bring appliances to Toronto’s Arcadia District
The partnership will mean all condominium purchasers will have suites outfitted in SMEG appliances' Classica Collection.
EllisDon Developments has partnered with SMEG Canada to bring their luxury appliances to all future residents of the upcoming master-planned Etobicoke community, Arcadia District.
This community will consist of four towers, ranging in height from 12 to 42 storeys with more than 1,300 units combined. The SMEG appliances from the Classica Collection will be integrated into all residential units within these towers. Situated at 56-60 Fieldway Rd., and located close to Bloor St. and Kipling Ave, the Arcadia District residences will come equipped with an array SMEG amenities, including refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, and microwaves.
The Classica Collection by SMEG was designed by Italian architect Guido Canali, who has contributed to the restoration of historical structures including the National Gallery in Parma, the Santa Maria della Scala in Siena, Prada’s headquarters in Tuscany, and the Museum of the Duomo in Milan’s main square. The collection’s aesthetic uses stainless steel to highlight the control knobs and handles that combine typical elements of industrial design.
Having a prominent global presence, SMEG is known for its collaborations with luxury brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Supreme, Veuve Clicquot, and Fiat, among others. While SMEG has partnered on residential projects within the U.S., the company has not partnered on a project of this scale in North America until now.
EllisDon is known for building landmarks including the Rogers Centre, Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto Pearson International Airport (Terminal 1) and other landmarks across schools, hospitals, entertainment centres, transit hubs, and more to partner with SMEG.
EllisDon and SMEG also share a common thread through the architect Renzo Piano, who has conceptualized a distinct collection for SMEG. Piano is also the creative force behind the New Toronto Court House, a monumental structure developed and constructed by EllisDon, that covers 690,000 square feet in downtown Toronto, with a construction cost totaling $956.4 million.
