We are fortunate to live in a time when there is a bright spotlight on living greener, eco-friendly products and materials, and building sustainably; ideas that were once considered far flung fables have become an exploding trend that is already reshaping our communities!
Earlier this year, we had the pleasure of selling 46 Herbert Avenue for our client Felix Leicher. The Herbert project, which we titled, A Unique Architectural Masterpiece In The Beach, was a study in sustainable building and design, garnering much press from media outlets like the Globe and Mail.
Even after its sale, 46 Herbert Avenue is still making headlines! Here is the latest press, in the National Post, entitled, “Renovating for the future, with a nod to the past in Toronto’s Beaches.”
Designed by German architect Felix Leicher – from baukultur/ca – his firm is a boutique development company with the mandate to create ambitious and unique spaces of the highest architectural standards. They are also committed to being environmentally friendly; the case for sustainable housing doesn’t just stem from cost savings derived from energy efficient construction and finishes, although that argument is compelling. It’s rewarding to be able to own a home that lets you take an active role in reducing your own carbon footprint. In this way, 46 Herbert Avenue appeals both to the pragmatic and social consciousness.
