Edge Towers offer everything a discriminating condo buyer could want—a prime location in Mississauga, access to transit and an elegant, luxury building with thoughtfully designed suites.
The development from Solmar is in the heart of Mississauga’s vibrant downtown corridor, with its first phase to open soon. Its location provides a lifestyle where a wealth of amenities are a short walk away, including the Mississauga Civic Centre, Celebration Square (site of multicultural festivals throughout the year and a skating rink in winter), the Living Arts Centre, the Central Library, YMCA Centre, Playdium, and Cineplex Cinemas. Just down the street is the famous Absolute Towers—also known as the Marilyn Monroe towers—that gained Mississauga international recognition.
Edge Towers, near Hurontario and Burnamthorpe, will be steps from a new LRT station that will be part of 20 kilometres of dedicated rapid transit between the Port Credit GO station in Mississauga to the Gateway Terminal at Steeles Ave. in Brampton and provide connections to Lakeshore West rail lines, MiWay, Brampton Transit and the Mississauga Transitway BRT (Bus Rapid Transit). The condos will also be within minutes of major highways including the QEW, 401, 407, and 403. The Mississauga Bus Terminal is a seven-minute walk away at Square One, the largest shopping centre in Ontario, where name brand retailers include Holt Renfrew, Hudson’s Bay, Walmart, and Whole Foods Market. A host of restaurants, stores, services, and more are within walking distance, making it easy to enjoy a true live, work, and play lifestyle.
The nearby Sheridan College campus offers 130 career-focussed programs. The first tower, 35 storeys with 293 suites, designed by Roy Varacalli of Cusimano Architects, will be launched soon. The community will eventually include three towers that will be visible from Toronto.
Beyond location, what will set Edge Towers apart is distinctive architecture, fine workmanship, and quality, which will be evident from the minute one walks into an elegant lobby done in pale, quiet hues, and boasting upscale marble appointments. The elegant, timeless design of the sales centre and model suite provides a glimpse of what buyers at Edge Towers can expect.
“When someone buys a better quality condo, they’ll be happier living there because of pride of ownership,” says Scott Davie, president of Davie Real Estate, the firm handling sales and marketing for Edge Towers. “From an investment perspective, you’re able to rent a suite out for more money.
Whether it’s an investor or end user, they’ll enjoy a higher appreciation in value due to the superior finishes, and quality of workmanship that Solmar has been known for over the last 25 years.”
The high standards extend beyond the common areas to the suites, which have been designed to maximize efficiency of space and include standard features such as 9-foot smooth ceilings, premium wide-plank laminate flooring, frameless glass shower doors, upgraded baseboards, and kitchens with quality cabinetry, under-valance lighting, quartz countertops, and high-grade appliances. Dochia Interior Design is the designer for the project.
The building will be served with a full range of popular amenities, including guest suites, Wi-Fi lounge, party room with a large terrace, fitness centre, media room, and more, and the Towers community will include a children’s play area and park land.
Davie says Mississauga, which is the GTA’s second largest condo market behind Toronto, represents excellent value for buyers. With new condo prices of about $1,100 to $1,400 per square foot in Toronto and $800 per square foot in Vaughan, Mississauga’s $600 per square foot price is still very affordable and the reason that Mississauga is becoming the alternative choice for a lot of home buyers.
Mississauga has made it clear “that it’s open for business” says Davie and several exciting new major developments are coming to Mississauga, which will boost its reputation as a progressive, modern city. It’s a rich, multi-cultural community with Chinese Canadians forming one of the largest ethnic groups in the city. Chinese purchasers have been buying homes in Mississauga for more than 20 years “and will certainly be a presence in this building,” says Davie.
Solmar has been building single family, condominium buildings and commercial properties across the Greater Toronto Area for more than 25 years. Its projects are distinguished by elegant interior designs and attention to details.
