    When developing the brand concept for District Condos’ 139 Market, we decided we wanted to tap into the artistic community that the Exchange is known for.

    To capture the feeling we get when roaming through the streets of the Exchange and visiting our favourite local hangouts, we thought we would incorporate a local artist’s work inspired by the area, rooting our branding in the community we know and love.

    We are now releasing our most affordable floorplan at Hudson, the Champlain, a two-bedroom, two-storey townhome starting as low as $241,900 including GST.
