Edge T2: New Release of Suites

New release of suites at Solmar’s Edge T2 in Mississauga

Latest News


New release of suites at Solmar’s Edge T2 in Mississauga

After the successful sale of the first of three Towers near Burnhamthorpe and Hurontario in Mississauga, sales have officially begun for Edge T2. Due to overwhelming demand, Solmar has now released more suites for sale on both higher and lower floors.

Available suites at Edge T2 range from 492 to over 1,400 square feet. Sales were fuelled by an amazing incentive program which included: free parking, free locker, free assignment; low lot levy cap, the ability to rent during occupancy, and a 15 per cent initial deposit spread out over 18 months.

Location was also a major contributor to the successful sales of the first batch of suites at Edge T2. According to the City, the major area for population growth in Mississauga over the next few years, by far, will be in the downtown core, surrounding Square One.

The guest speaker at the Edge T2 Grand Opening was Mayor Bonnie Crombie, and she spoke about the new LRT that will be running right in front of Edge Towers, and will connect all of Peel, from north to south, with over 20 kilometres of rapid, reliable transit.

“Edge Towers is positioned well for the major growth coming to Mississauga, especially considering the GO Train station is a five-minute walk away, offering efficient travel to Union Station and the Airport.”

The Mayor went on to say, “Mississauga is known to have a great supply of educated and skilled workers, and is already home to over 60 Fortune 500 companies.

“This is one factor that makes Mississauga a sought after destination of many international companies, and the fact is that they are bringing many new jobs to the City.”

Edge T2 is also just a short walk to the world class, luxury shopping at Square One, with shops like Holt Renfrew, Harry Rosen, and Rolex.

Local residents can also walk to neighbourhood restaurants like Earl’s and Bier Market, as well as Whole Foods, Starbucks, and Sheridan College.

The attendees of the Grand Opening had an opportunity to speak with the developer and his team, and learn about Solmar’s commitment to building a new standard of luxury in Mississauga, one that will make Edge Towers the best quality condominiums on the main downtown corridor of Mississauga for years to come.

Solmar Developments is an Italian family-run business that takes a special pride in what they build, and has been in business for over 30 years.

Attendees of the event had a chance to view the Designer decorated model suite that featured standard finishes like nine foot smooth ceilings, superior quality stainless steel and fully integrated kitchen appliances, full-size front loading washer and dryers, quartz and marble counter tops, and frameless glass shower doors.

The building amenities will also be very luxurious beginning with a lobby that resembles a high end hotel with 24 hour concierge, and include guest suites, party room with fire feature and barbeques, gym, yoga studio, games room, WiFi-lounge, and a galleria.

To view the floor plans and the designer-decorated model suite, and to receive pricing, visit the Presentation Centre, located at 24 Elm Drive West in Mississauga. The Presentation Centre is open from noon to 7 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekends; closed Fridays.

Solmar Developments takes advantage of all that Mississauga has to offer with their new condo at Burnhamthorpe and Hurontario

Why is Mississauga a breath of fresh air for new condo buyers? Mississauga was largely built by newcomers to Canada, and that was a result of our modern immigration policy, beginning in the 1970s.

The growth of Mississauga was a modern success story showcasing the evolution of Canadian culture. Mississauga’s most common languages after English, according to 2016 Census data, are Chinese, Urdu, Arabic, Polish, and Panjabi.

Mississauga has grown successfully because of a combination of a political desire to attract new businesses, and new and existing Canadian residents, and a desire to be pro Real Estate Development. These policies were championed by the legendary Mayor Hazel McCallion, and continue under the strong leadership of the current Mayor, Bonnie Crombie. Mayor Crombie often speaks about the importance of attracting good paying jobs to Mississauga with a catch phrase, “Mississauga is open for business!”

“A strong and expanding local economy creates skilled, well-paying new jobs, and new and existing residents need nice places to live that are affordable”, says Mayor Crombie.

Home to over 60 of the worlds Fortune 500 companies, Mississauga is known to be strong in the pharmaceutical industry, banking and finance, electronics and computers, Aerospace, transportation parts, and equipment.

The new LRT was an important component in creating a modern, world class city, connecting the region of Peel, from north to south along Hurontario, offering residents convenient and rapid access to Union Station, the Airport, or anywhere on the Metrolinx transportation system.

Ontario’s third largest city projects its largest population growth, by far, to be in its downtown core, at Burnamthorpe and Hurontario.

The Mississauga Downtown Core features Square One Shopping Centre, Ontario’s largest and most sophisticated mall, featuring world class shopping like Holt Renfrew, Armani, Hugo Boss, Gucci, and the Rolex Boutique.

Local residents can live the modern downtown lifestyle with conveniences like Whole Foods, Chapters, Earls, the Bier Market, the Living Arts Centre, and Sheridan College all within a short walk.

Condominium apartments are the modern choice for Real Estate offering a luxury, care free lifestyle at an affordable price, compared to the soaring price, and the physical maintenance required, with houses and townhouses.

With downtown Toronto new Condo prices typically ranging between $1,000 to $1,400 per square foot, Mississauga is a breath of fresh air for GTA Buyers who would have traditionally chosen downtown Toronto.

Over the last number of years, there has generally been a $150 to $200 per square foot difference between buying a premium quality downtown condo versus a premium quality Mississauga Condo.

Buying a triple A condo in Mississauga versus downtown you can currently save as much as $600 per square foot, if you compare two new condos that both have:

  • a superior location;
  • proximity to the LRT (versus subway downtown);
  • walking distance to world class luxury shopping, trendy restaurants, major post-secondary education;
  • an experienced Developer known for providing superior quality finishes and workmanship.

Compare Solmar Developments, Edge Tower 2

Located in Mississauga’s downtown core, on the new Hurontario LRT, Edge Tower 2 offers the best quality finishes and workmanship in Mississauga and is being built by an experienced Italian Developer.

The incentive package is also the best in Mississauga, and unheard of downtown, with free parking, free locker, free assignment, 5 per cent deposit this year (15 per cent over 18 months)*, a low lot levy cap, and the ability to rent during occupancy.

With the best quality finishes and the strongest incentive package offered in Mississauga new high rise condos, many consider it to the best value in the GTA. You can judge this for yourself by visiting the Designer decorated, model suite at the Presentation Centre and get a sneak preview of Edge Tower 2.

Visit the The Presentation Centre, located at 24 Elm Drive West. The Presentation Centre is open from noon to 7 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends; closed Friday.

LOCAL FOCUS: Mississauga

by Gale Beeby

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.

LEISURE PURSUITS

There is a lot to do in Mississauga, including a visit to the Art Gallery of Mississauga and the Living Arts Centre, which offers a number of musical performances, plays and children’s activities. The city’s largest festival happens on Canada Day and the Tree-Lighting Ceremony and New Year’s Eve bash at Celebration Square at City Hall are always popular.

Streetsville holds its annual Bread and Honey Festival the first weekend of June and Port Credit holds multiple festivals throughout the year, including Buskerfest, the Waterfront Festival, and the Southside Shuffle Blues & Jazz Fastival. In Malton, the Sikh community holds its annual Khalsa Day Parade, which attracts more than 100,000 people.

PARKS & REC

Mississauga boasts more than 522 parks and 225 kilometres of trails and woodlands. Some parks provide serenity, while others boast a variety of active recreational facilities, including indoor and outdoor skating rinks, cricket and soccer pitches, baseball and softball diamonds, football fields, tennis courts and childrens’ play areas and splash pads.

There are many golf courses in the city, including Derrydale, Credit Valley, Toronto Golf, Streetsville Glen, Lionhead, Grand Highland, Mississuaga Golf, BraeBen and Lakeview.

RETAIL THERAPY

Each of the villages that now make up Mississauga have lovely boutique-style shopping with cafés and restaurants to suit every taste and budget. Square One Shopping Centre, located at the City Centre, has over 350 stores and services and is surrounded by several bars and restaurants, a multi-screen movie theatre, City Hall, the Central Library and Playdium. The Erin Mills Town Centre is the second-largest mall in the city and is notable for its clock tower, mini-golf course and daycare centre.

EASY ACCESS

Mississauga is served by seven major highways, including the QEW, Highways 401, 403, 409, 410, 427 and 407. Mississauga Transit is the third-largest municipal transit system in Ontario, servicing about 43 million riders per year, and connecting with the TTC, Brampton Transit, Oakville Transit and GO Transit.

Streetsville Centre

The ultimate in right-space living

For many, once they enter the empty nester stage of life, they also want a change of lifestyle – one that is simpler and less-encumbered with the day-to-day tasks of maintaining a large family home. Dunpar Homes has developed the perfect compromise at Streetsville Centre.

This 200-unit enclave of executive, back-to-back townhomes is located in the heart of Streetsville. It’s convenient location positions you close to everything, including the GO station (located right across the street), retail shops and restaurants on the main street and Streetsville Memorial Park, as well as easy access to Highways 401, 403 and the QEW. And for leisure and business travellers, Toronto Pearson International airport is a 10-minute cab ride.

RIGHT-SIZING

Rather than thinking of it as downsizing, refer to it as right-sizing. Studies show that we spend 80 per cent of our time in only 20 per cent of our homes – leaving lots of wasted space. Moving to a smaller, better laid out, home could put money in your retirement bank account.

The savings are significant, not only in terms of mortgage payments (if you still have them), but also as it relates to utilities, property taxes, insurances, etc. In addition, maintenance and upkeep costs, especially on older homes, can be exorbitant.

REDIRECTED PRIORITIES

With extra cash flow, you have the opportunity to travel more, to help out your children or grandchildren, to buy an alternate warm-weather condo, or add to your retirement portfolio. A diversified portfolio is always more attractive than one that ties up your equity in one bulk investment. As long as the house that you sold was your principal residence, the proceeds are tax-free, so the money is yours to do with as you wish. As with any big decision, it’s best to speak with your financial advisor.

When buying new, you want to be selective, and to make sure that you get exactly what you’re looking for. Your time is valuable, and you no longer need to be worried about mowing the lawn, shovelling the snow or exterior maintenance.

MORE TO GAIN

Homes here are spacious, and range in size from 1,500 to 1875 square feet. All have three bedrooms, two-car garages and well-proportioned principal rooms, as well as a roof top deck or a balcony off the kitchen. Prices start in the mid $800,000s, and include granite countertops, an under-mount kitchen sink, a frameless glass shower door in the ensuite, smooth ceilings and stainless steel kitchen appliances.

Dunpar insists upon having full control over the exterior architecture and landscape design in every one of their communities. As a result, a Dunpar community is recognizable. And while residents benefit from a maintenance-free lifestyle, they also are ensured of a good-looking community for years to come.

Vaughan, Mississauga and Toronto sign Housing Pledge

BILD sets out its four-point plan on how municipalities can help make housing more affordable and increase supply.

The Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) held press conferences in Vaughan, Toronto and Mississauga to launch its Build for Growth campaign that coincides with the 2018 municipal election.

The campaign outlines BILD’s four-point plan on how municipalities can help make housing more affordable and increase supply.

“Housing will be a key election issue in the Greater Toronto Area,” said Dave Wilkes, president and CEO of BILD. “Providing housing for the next generation is a challenge that needs to be solved in a partnership between residents, the building industry and municipal governments across the region.”

BILD’s four-point plan shows how municipalities can take a leadership role in increasing the supply of housing and support sustainable, affordable growth and make sure government fees, taxes and charges on new homes are fair and equitable, fund and build critical infrastructure, cut red tape, and adopt a Standard of Service Excellence for building permits and inspections in order to speed up building and renovations. The mayors of Vaughan and Mississauga, as well as Toronto’s deputy mayor, signed a Housing Pledge acknowledging that housing is an issue that must be addressed and that they are committed to engaging in a dialogue with government partners and the development community to expand the amount and types of housing options that are available. They believe that buying a new home should be a time to celebrate a major milestone and join a community. Over the next few months, BILD will be calling on all municipal candidates to sign the pledge.

BILD encourages citizens of the GTA and all municipal candidates to visit BuildForGrowth.ca to sign the Housing Pledge and make their voices heard. With 1,500 members, BILD is the voice of the home building, land development and professional renovation industry in the Greater Toronto Area.
