Solmar Developments begins construction at Edge Towers in Mississauga

Solmar Development Corp. Is a family business that has a 30-year track record of excellent customer service building elegant, luxury new homes and condominiums all over southern Ontario.

The company celebrated the official start of construction of Edge Towers, a three-tower luxury residential condominium project located on Hurontario Street, just steps from Burnhamthorpe and Square One in downtown Mississauga.

Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie joined the Solmar team at the ground-breaking ceremony last month. She spoke about Mississauga being the third largest city in Ontario and used her latest catch phrase, “Mississauga means jobs” when speaking to the attendees at the event.

The Mayor spoke about the importance of creating new jobs, attracting opportunity for new and existing Mississauga residents that will lead to prosperity. “Last year alone,” she said, “the City of Mississauga was directly involved in the creation of up to 4,500 new jobs. A future driver of Mississauga business’ success is the new Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) that will be located right next to Edge Towers. More than 3,800 businesses and 78,000 jobs currently rely on this line today, and those numbers are expected to grow to one quarter of all employment in Mississauga, or nearly 130,000 jobs, in the future.”

Today, an important component defining the value of new condominium locations is the proximity to public transit. Since Edge Towers is also located just steps from the Cooksville GO station, commuters will have convenient access to both local amenities with the LRT and anywhere on the Metrolinx GO train system, including Union Station and the airport.

Scott Davie, president of Davie Real Estate, the Broker selling Edge Towers says, “Edge residents won’t need transportation to enjoy most local amenities. Edge Towers is walking distance to world class shopping at Square One, trendy restaurants like Earl’s and Bier Market, cool markets like Whole foods, and meeting places like Starbucks and Tim Hortons. Other local amenities within walking distance include Sheridan College, the Living Arts Centre, and the Art Gallery of Mississauga. Residents can experience a downtown Toronto lifestyle at half the price.”

A second major component to defining value in a new condominium is the quality of the finishes and workmanship, and the customer service. The first impression of visitors to Edge Towers will be a luxuriously appointed lobby with 24-hour concierge and elegant marble and granite finishes in neutral tones. This timeless elegance theme will run through all of the luxury amenities, which include guest suites, party room with wraparound rooftop terrace and barbecues, gym, yoga studio, movie theatre, Wi-Fi lounge, games room, and a Galleria.

The interior suite finishes are also exceptional. They include nine-ft. smooth ceilings, luxury fully integrated, stainless steel kitchen appliances, full size stackable front loading washer and dryers, quartz countertops, frameless glass shower doors, and frameless mirror closet doors. Solmar pays attention to the details with features such as larger baseboards and casings.

Edge Tower 2 suites are currently selling, ranging in size from 492 to more than 1.400 sq. ft., and are available as one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus den, and three-bedroom designs.

Edge T2 offers the advantage of a higher level of quality, a better location, and a better incentive program, including free parking, free locker, free assignment, a 15-per-cent deposit over 18 months (plus five per cent at occupancy), and a low lot levy cap. It’s always nice to have an advantage when buying real estate.

Visit the Edge T2 designer-decorated model suite at the Presentation Centre, located at 24 Elm Dr. West in Mississauga. The Presentation Centre is open from noon to 6 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends; closed Fridays.

The sixth largest city in Canada continues to grow

HOUSING OPTIONS

Initially a suburb of Toronto, Mississauga’s growth has given it a unique identity. In 1935, the first suburban developments – corresponding with the opening of the QEW from Highway 27 to Highway 10 – popped up in the area south of the Dixie Road and QEW interchange. Over time, development moved north and west and large-scale developments started to happen in the 1960s and ’70s. Mississauga saw a condo boom starting in the 1990s and the area around Square One is now full of highrise buildings. Click here to see a list of homes for sale.
