Amico has broken ground at its latest condo development – 42 Mill St. in Georgetown.

Comprising six stories and 78 suites from the mid $400’s, 42 Mill St. units boast open concept designs, 9.5- to 10.5-ft. ceiling heights, European-style kitchens with integrated appliances, luxurious master ensuites, garden suite patios, recessed pot lights and exclusive access to electric car charging stations.

42 Mill St. also offers state-of-the-art building amenities, including fully-appointed fitness studio, a party room, an outdoor terrace with fireside lounge and barbecue, as well as an indoor party room with adjacent business lounge.

“We were intent on giving the community all that it deserves in terms of the quality of the product,” Cindy Prince, vice-president of development for Amico, told Condo Life. “The reception has been terrific. We listened to the community a lot when we were going through the design process.”

Located right in downtown Georgetown, 42 Mill St. is walking distance to historic streets, shops and other amenities. Also nearby are schools, hospitals, recreation facilities and golf courses. The building is adjacent to the newly developed Lions Club Park, affording outdoor enthusiasts easy access to the Silver Creek Trail and the Terra Cotta Conservation Area.

And with the Georgetown GO station a short drive away, residents can be in downtown Toronto in just 55-minutes.

The first of what will eventually be three buildings on the site, 42 Mill St. occupies an important place in the local history – it’s the site of the former Georgetown Memorial Arena, which opened in 1922 and was closed in 2013.

“It’s an appropriate thing to do in the community,” Prince says. Some of the common areas of the first building will likely be given somewhat of an arena theme, with artwork and historic photos reflecting the roots of the site.

Prince also hints that Amico is looking at Georgetown and the Halton Hills area for other possible future projects.
