The Toronto Star – Emerald City


March 18, 2015 – About a month ago, ELAD CANADA celebrated the grand opening of The Colours of Emerald City, the new phase of their master-planned condo community in North York. ELAD used the opportunity to also celebrate the Chinese New Year with a Lion Dance performance, traditional Erhu musicians, a spin-to-win roulette wheel, tons of treats, and most importantly, special incentives for purchasers.

Why are we bringing up this event from a month ago? Because ELAD just announced that they will continue to offer one of the attractive incentives for a very limited time! Purchasers at The Colours of Emerald City will receive cash backs of up to $8,000 on closing (for a limited time).

Emerald City on the rise

The first three condominiums of ELAD’s master-planned community are complete, and they are now selling the first building of the new phase of condos, which is a 13-storey boutique condo designed by WZMH Architects, with interiors by renowned firm II BY IV Design Associates.

The new collection of condo buildings in The Colours of Emerald City will all share a wonderful array of amenities, including a fitness facility equipped for cardio and weight training, and a swimming pool and whirlpool connected to HIS and HERS saunas. The pool opens up to an outdoor terrace, which features a barbecue area and ample seating and tables for alfresco dining. The party room, with dining space, a lounge area, screening room, and games room, also opens up to the outdoor terrace. With a few buildings sharing amenities and all the amenities connected, ELAD is creating a great environment to establish an intimate and friendly community – a rare accomplishment in large condo developments.

The new suites of The Colours of Emerald City start in the mid $200,000s, and boast high quality features and finishes, such as spacious balconies and terraces, 9’ ceilings, your choice of granite or quartz countertops, and either stainless steel or fully integrated appliances in the open concept kitchens. To get the full experience of what the new phase of Emerald City has to offer, you have to visit the new model suite designed by II BY IV.

Life in the heart of North York

The success of ELAD’s first three condos at the corner of Don Mills and Sheppard is enough to sell this neighbourhood. By now, everyone understands how amazing the area amenities are. Fairview Mall is right across the street, where you can shop, dine, and hang out with with friends and neighbours. There are 175 stores at Fairview Mall, so there is something for everyone!

The TTC is also just steps away from Emerald City. In most cases, you’ll only have to step outside for a few seconds to get to the subway. For all the drivers out there, the Don Valley Parkway and Highway 404 are easily accessible from the community. Even though there are tons of shops and restaurants directly across the street from Emerald City, there is definitely a certain excitement that the downtown core has to offer, whether you’re in search of a new trendy bar, a busy club, or some unique independent vintage shops. Good thing downtown is only a 30-minute subway ride away!

Emerald City is definitely a great option for those who want access to downtown Toronto, but don’t want to deal with the crowds every single day.
