Live life on your terms at Parkland on Eglinton West

Opening in late 2020 is a new community called Parkland on Eglinton West. Designed for active retirees over the age of 50, this community will offer a variety of amenities, services and conveniences to help residents live their best life.

Here, residents have a choice as to how they want to spend their days. They also have peace of mind knowing that team members are onsite around the clock, along with 24/7 emergency response.

Cost comparison

It’s hard enough to make that all-important decision to sell the family home and scale down to a lifestyle that’s easily adaptable to your current needs. And, when you think of the alternatives, the choices are overwhelming. If you add up what it might cost for the additional services that you’ll eventually need, including meals, transportation and housekeeping, on top of your regular monthly mortgage or rent, plus property taxes and insurance, gas, water and hydro, as well as house repairs or maintenance fees (if living in a condominium), the total sum can be quite shocking. Imagine having everything on one simple monthly bill, and no long-term contracts. At Parkland it’s possible.

Exclusive and inclusive

At Parkland on Eglinton West you have direct access to on-site amenities from your expertly designed apartment, including a fitness centre, a pool, a spa, a golf simulator and three restaurants – just to name a few. In addition, scheduled social, and wellness, activities are available to all residents, and small pets are most welcome.

Each suite is well-appointed with the highest quality finishes, including stainless steel appliances, year-round heating and cooling, stone countertops, an in-suite washer and dryer, as well as plenty of storage. If you don’t like cooking everyday, then you can enjoy all-day dining. There are no restrictive hours or seating plans in the restaurants. You can choose which dining venue you’d prefer by selecting from a choice of seasonally inspired, ever-changing menus. Parkland prides itself on the flexibility to live life your way.

Quality care and service

Parkland is a Canadian, family-owned business with more than 30 years experience in providing quality accommodations, service and care to residents. Parkland understands the importance of aging in place, which is why they offer a lifestyle continuum to support a variety of needs. Residents have a choice of fully independent lifestyle apartments, an all-inclusive lifestyle, assisted living, memory care and enriched care, as well as short-term stays.

The lifestyle apartments and the all-inclusive lifestyle suites are now more than 60 per cent leased. Interested residents can check out this exceptional lifestyle at the presentation centre at 4650 Eglinton Ave West.

Parkland also operates a location in Mississauga, and has future expansion plans in Ajax and Ancaster.

Etobicoke is development central, literally

Etobicoke is development central, literally

In real estate terms, an area in transition is a good thing, since it generally refers to progress, development and things being on the upswing.

Count Etobicoke as just one of those areas.

Really? Etobicoke, that large, narrow north-south swath that stretches from Lake Ontario up to Steeles Ave., and shouldered by Humber River on the east and Etobicoke Creek on the west? With large, well established and affluent neighbourhoods?

Yes, one and the same – the west end locale with the funny name people often mispronounce (FYI the K is silent) – that wasn’t exactly in need of an upgrade.

Blessed with a strong natural location due to its proximity to downtown Toronto, easy access to the QEW and Hwys. 401, 427 and 27, the Bloor subway line and several major TTC and GO Transit hubs, Etobicoke has long been a sought-after residential location.

North Etobicoke, for its easy highway access, plethora of commercial ventures and lower priced real estate. Etobicoke Centre, for its proximity to the Islington-City Centre West central business district, and exclusive neighbourhoods with large, treed properties such as the Kingsway. And South Etobicoke, or Etobicoke Lakeshore, for its prime lakefront location and areas such as Humber Bay and Mystic Pointe.

Do south

But when it comes to new condo development and buying opportunities, it’s all about the south. Well, mostly the south, until very recently.

Etobicoke Lakeshore was the first to transition, with the former motel strip at Lakeshore and Park Lawn giving way over the last several years to dozens of new projects. Today it is one of Toronto’s hottest new condo destinations. Your location here is right on Lake Ontario, with outstanding views of downtown Toronto, along the Martin Goodman Trail for cycling and running, and close to the Gardiner to commute into the city and to the QEW to head west. TTC bus and streetcar service is quite literally at your front door.

Now the condo boom is spreading north, into the central part of Etobicoke with new developments along Dundas St. W. between Islington and the 427, and several more planned for the south side of Dundas just west of Kipling subway. New condos are also springing up along the 427 near Burhamthorpe, appealing to those who prefer highway access over transit.

Under construction

Indeed, in Etobicoke Centre, construction will be the order of the day. For years. Six Points intersection, known locally as “Spaghetti Junction,” is a complicated interchange where Kipling, Bloor and Dundas all intersect. To support future development in the area, the City is spending tens of millions of dollars over the next two years to modernize the road and surrounding infrastructure. Plans include improved pedestrian and cycle access, wider sidewalks, more trees, street furniture and improved access to Kipling subway. The station itself is being expanded into a regional transit hub to link the TTC with GO Transit trains and buses, as well as Mississauga Mi-Way bus lines.

Location, location, location

Bordered on the south by Lake Ontario, on the east by the Humber River, on the west by Etobicoke Creek and Mississauga, and on the north by Steeles Ave. W.; population 365,143.
