Grand Palace: A Grand Vision

14 Nov Grand Palace: A Grand Vision

Theodore Roosevelt once said, “The most important single ingredient in formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.” These stoic words represent a palpable maxim for Stefano Guizzetti, Jack Scivoletto and Albert Gasparro. The result couldn’t be grander.

Aligned under the Guizzetti Corporation banner, this trio has embarked on a landmark endeavour to bring Richmond Hill its most prominent condo residence yet: Grand Palace Condominiums. “What we’re trying to do here in Richmond Hill is update the city’s esthetic; to bring it up to the class it deserves,” says Scivoletto, vice-president of Guizzetti Corporation. Three stunning 15-storey glass condo buildings will stand on a foundation of various commercial and retail spaces, all accented by luxurious amenities that cater to every aspect of life in the city.

With spacious nine-foot ceilings as a standard, each of the 524 units are drenched in natural light thanks to their frames of chic glass walls. Contemporary elegance fashions these open-concept suites, each adorned with sleek fixtures and energy-efficient appliances, including Fisher & Paykel refrigerators and Whirlpool stainless-steel dishwashers, ovens, microwaves and full-sized stacked washers and dryers. Granite countertops are also standard features, as are the premium porcelain tiles that line the bathroom and kitchen floors.

While all these features paint a pristine vision of modern living, the icing on the cake is individual in-suite climate control. Many condo developments keep heating and air-conditioning in the hands of the building — residents must wait for the condo corporation to turn it on. Scivoletto, who’s worked in construction and development for over 30 years, explains this addition frees residents from constraints of conventional condos. “You have the ability to control your home’s temperature, so you’re not paying for excessive utility costs,” he says.
