While many homebuyers spend the winter hibernating before springing into action around March, there are plenty of developers already gearing up for some seriously captivating project launches in 2014.

To kick the new year off the right way, we’ve compiled a short list of buzzworthy projects that will be hitting the market in the upcoming months. Enjoy!

YC Condos by Canderel

Even though this new condo tower in downtown Toronto will not reach the soaring height of the nearby Aura, the tallest condo in North America, its inspired design will ensure it stands out within the area’s burgeoning skyline. Interior design by Burdifilek, an international firm known for its work on Holt Renfrew and W Hotels, won’t hurt YC Condos’ cause either.

Core Condos by CentreCourt Developments

After giving the Toronto market a glimpse of what was to come back in mid-December, Core Condos has sustained a significant amount of buzz through the early days of 2014 and can be frequently seen trending on BuzzBuzzHome. With architecture by the reliably forward-thinking Page + Steele IBI Group Architects, the centrally located development is sure to keep turning heads throughout the year.

The Homes of St. Clair West by Urbancorp

Nestled in the quaint Corso Italia neighbourhood (also known as Toronto’s other Little Italy), the uber-modern townhouse community will soon add even more life to the already vibrant midtown strip. The imposing exterior and open-concept design is far from typical, just like trendy shops and gourmet eateries that dot the area.

MET2 by Concord Pacific

The second phase of Concord Pacific’s Burnaby condo development is MET2, a 42-storey tower sandwiched between two parks, and within easy walking distance of BC’s largest mall and the Metrotown SkyTrain station. Leisure enthusiasts will appreciate the project’s many resort-style amenities, which include a full cocktail lounge and yoga studio.

Smith by Grosvenor

With architectural work from BKDI Architects and interiors by Trepp Design, Smith is sure to impress Calgary homebuyers when it launches later this year. Situated just off the trendy 17th Avenue entertainment district, the 18-storey concrete high-rise will be comprised of 129 homes ranging in size from 456 to a spacious 1,680 square feet.
