Gary's Story

Gary Silverberg

As an artist and real estate developer, Gary Silverberg is driven by the idea of constantly finding ways to improve how we live. Whether it’s taking a community on the cusp of change and breathing new life into it, or finding ways of making improvements in our lived experience to seamlessly blend retail and living spaces into a new form of live/work space.

With more than 40 years of experience across all real estate sectors including commercial and retail, Gary approaches every project the same way -- by thinking about how people interact with their environment; private spaces, shared spaces and the wider community. This sense of connection is at the core of all his projects.

With Art Condos, Gary designed a first-of-its-kind live/work space that catered to the authentic nature of Toronto’s West Queen West community. Dubbed one of top 5 condos in Toronto by the Globe and Mail, Art Condos is an example of a building that is aesthetically pleasing, functional and easily understood from a human scale.

Connection is at the Core of What we Do...

“We approach every project the same way — by thinking about how people interact with their environment; public spaces and the wider community. This sense of connection is at the core of all our projects.”

Quality of Life

“We create buildings where technology, lifestyle and economics blend seamlessly to create an ideal living environment”

Art Condos Gary Silverberg

Queen West, Toronto

Dubbed one of the top 5 standout condominiums in Toronto by the Globe and Mail, Art Condos is an 11-storey, 152-unit midrise located in Toronto’s West Queen St. West district. Designed to reflect the authentic aesthetic of the neighbourhood, ART Condos’ ground floor features live-work units with 15-foot ceilings that match the neighborhood’s character and are flexible-use spaces designed for the unique needs of small businesses.

Other standout features include designing the building’s loading dock and laneway access to double as a social space where the community can interact, complete with artistic murals and an evening light show. Art Condos was also one of the first developments in Toronto to introduce a new unit design called “Sky Towns”. These spacious two-storey units, on the 3rd floor, each with a terrace, are positioned around a central landscaped space – almost like a series of row houses.
