Living well is all about point of view. What if your point of view, literally, enhanced the quality of your life? Think of dazzling panoramic vistas, dotted with sparkling lights and urban streetscapes. And in addition to a spectacular point of view, what if you could surround yourself with style and substance?
Welcome to 4901-2191 Yonge Street!
Located at Yonge & Eglinton, Minto Midtown towers over the city scape. This architectural jewel is notable not just for its stunning aesthetics, but for its pioneering place in the city’s condominium development history. Completed in 2008, Minto’s Midtown development was the first to receive permission to build way up into the sky (37 and 54 stories high, respectively) concluding an ongoing debate about height and density restrictions that had riddled the development community for years. And the rest, they say, is history, as the skyline in the city of Toronto now is characterized by glittering residences, reaching into the sky, and this is the development that paved the way.
Those who include sustainable materials and construction on their must-have list will take particular interest in this project. Minto is a frequent recipient of the “Green Builder of the Year” award, handed out by the Ontario Home Builder’s Association. Minto Midtown received LEED Gold certification in 2009, which makes it the largest multi-residential building in Canada to receive this nod. There are green features aplenty-from energy efficient lighting to water usage to heating.
This expansive suite, measuring 1462 square feet from builder's plan offers contemporary quality, enveloped by views, framed by floor to ceiling windows. Upon entry, you are greeted with the panorama, made more evident by abundant light flowing through.
The kitchen is a cook’s delight, with rich cabinetry and granite countertops. The depth of colour is enhanced by stainless steel appliances and rich hardwood flooring throughout the main living area, which unfolds through the dining and living areas, all anchored with huge windows and huge views. The powder room has elegant visual texture, made more prominent with Amber glass mosaic tile on the walls.
The Master Bedroom is sizeable and is host to more impressive views, presented through another large window. The upgraded ensuite bathroom is truly a sophisticated retreat, a study in clean lines, complete with a kneewall between the tub and toilet, flanked by marble slabs, topped by a unique etched glass screen. Rounding out this exquisite space is a second bedroom and den, offering additional office, sleeping and storage areas.
The amenities at Minto Midtown are exceptional and include a 24-hour concierge, fabulous indoor pools and fitness facilities, screening rooms and landscaped terraces with barbeques, permitting for sublime outdoor experiences, smack dab in the core of the city.
It’s not just the onsite amenities that contribute heavily to a superior quality of life; convenience factors in as well- and this is a prime location that delivers on all counts. Public transport and Eglinton Station are just steps away. Errand-friendly amenities are close by as well, with numerous banks, an LCBO and a Metro grocery a quick stroll away.
Looking for an evening out? There are abundant dining options. The Keg is located on ground level. Italian eateries Zucca Trattoira and Grano are within a 5-minute walk. Coquine French Bistro, which offers live jazz on Sundays, is also a 5-minute walk away.
When you are perched in the sky, there is a certain serenity that comes with being able to observe the nuances of urban living as they unfold below and beyond. Add to that the convenience of being able to actively participate with numerous amenities at your doorstep means that you get the trifecta- choice, convenience and contemporary cool.
