Star Tower at Beyond the Sea - Already a glowing success, hurry for pre-construction pricing
Empire Communities’ Star Tower Condominiums is the third and final tower in one of Etobicoke’s most successful waterfront communities, Beyond the Sea. Star Tower has already attracted a wide variety of purchasers from first-time buyers to move-up purchasers, and empty-nesters, all seeking the ultimate in lakeside living, just 10 minutes from downtown. Situated on Lake Shore Boulevard West, just west of Park Lawn Road, Star Tower will be nestled between extensive new public parkland coming to the north, and on the south by the Martin Goodman Trail, a 350-kilometre trail system that winds its way locally through Humber Bay Park and past Mimico Creek. Star Tower will also offer proximity to the many shops and services along The Queensway, plus easy access to the Gardiner Expressway.
“The phenomenal success of Beyond The Sea and now Star Tower can be attributed to the outstanding value found here,” says Paul Golini Jr., Executive Vice-President, “as well as Empire Communities’ singular dedication to providing life-enhancing environments through innovative design, outstanding workmanship and a higher standard of customer care. In fact, Star Tower has proven so successful in its own right, that the awarding-winning presentation centre will close in the new year to make way for the start of construction.”
The National Sales and Marketing Council has just announced its prestigious Silver and Regional winners for the 2008 National Awards competition, The Nationals, which honours new-home sales and marketing by homebuilders, developers, associates, and consultants. The Beyond The Sea presentation centre by munge//leung: design associates has captured Silver in the category “Best Sales Office – Urban” (www.thenationals.com), and Gold Awards will emerge from the Silver Award winners at the Nationals Gala held on February 13, 2008, in Orlando, Florida.
