Emerald City: Fifth on the Park
Excitement is contagious at Emerald City, where sales will soon launch for Fifth on the Park, the community’s fifth and newest residential opportunity in the phenomenally successful North York neighbourhood. This master-planned community is anchored at Don Mills Rd. and Sheppard Ave., close to a wealth of shopping and entertainment venues, restaurants and services in Fairview Mall – a popular Toronto shopping destination. In addition, Fifth on the Park suite owners will share exclusive amenity spaces with The Colours of Emerald City, the fourth condominium in the community.
A slender point tower that will have a marked presence on the skyline, Fifth on the Park was designed by WZMH Architects, with interiors by II BY IV DESIGN – a prestigious team of acclaimed industry professionals. Offering sophistication and comfort, building amenities begin with the modern lobby, where sleek surfaces sport elegant geometric patterns as a backdrop to lounge-style seating. Just off the lobby, the WiFi Lounge will provide an excellent space for reading or tweeting in the glow of a double-sided fireplace.
Keeping fit and relaxed will be easy and convenient, with an indoor pool, hot tub, His and Hers change rooms and saunas, a yoga room and fitness room among the amenities mix. For entertaining, residents can access a lounge and dining room with a fully equipped kitchen and an expansive outdoor patio and dining area. There is also a terrace with barbecues and outdoor dining facilities. When it comes to having fun, how about a karaoke/theatre room and an old-school arcade and games centre?
Local amenities take on a whole new meaning at Emerald City, which is home to the new Parkway Forest Community Centre. This facility features a full-size gymnasium, weight room, dance studios, running track, craft and meeting rooms, youth lounge, commercial teaching kitchen, YMCA-run daycare centre, and a rooftop garden. An aquatic centre and outdoor pool are slated to open next fall. Another standout in Emerald City is “The Four Seasons” – the fabulous public art by Canadian novelist and visual artist Douglas Coupland. These brightly coloured iconic vertical cones range from approximately 48 to 60 feet in height.
Emerald City’s location is a sensation, as the Don Mills and Sheppard intersection receives an impressive 80 on WalkScore.com. It’s a short stroll to the Don Mills subway station, and access to Highways 401, 404 and the Don Valley Parkway is handy.
