The Lash Group Of Companies, a development firm known for creating high-quality living spaces in Toronto with their 500 St. Clair West, 530 St. Clair West, and the Rushton on St. Clair Avenue West have brought their expertise in developing luxury housing to North Etobicoke with Cloud9, located at Kipling Avenue and Esther Lorrie Drive. Here as at their ME Living project in Scarborough where land prices are less than in the central city, Lash has been able to meld luxury and very affordable prices with Cloud9.

The 12-storey boutique-style building designed by Richmond Architects is understated and elegant, with playful touches of colour on its façade. Inside, the interior is designed by Tanner Hill Associates, who have thoughtfully laid out each suite, making them comfortable and spacious. The ground floor suites in particular will boast an impressive 9-1/2 ft. ceiling height, allowing plenty of sunlight to stream into the home. The feeling or airiness and spaciousness would also be enhanced by these high ceilings, while residents would be given generous wall space to display their personal style with art and wall decorations.

Cloud9 will also be outfitted with amenities that rival many of the downtown condominium projects. Residents can use the indoor/outdoor swimming pool, workout in a fully-equipped fitness facility, entertain on the outdoor terrance - outfitted with barbecues and lounge seating, or enjoy a meal together in the al fresco kitchen and rooftop fireplace space.

Lash has chosen a site that offers plenty of amenities in a mature suburban setting. Defining the northern and western edges of Cloud9 is the West Humber River valley, putting residents in close proximity to nature and allowing them access to the extensive trail network in the valley. This is sure to entice some buyers who prefer natural settings a little distance from downtown's bustle, without travelling very far when they want to head into the core. Cloud9 is located within close proximity to Highways 401 and 427, for those looking for convenient access to outside the city. For commuters, Cloud9’s location also allows for quick access via bus to the TTC subway system and GO Transit.

Suites will start at $268,990, offering attractive value and luxury for a fraction of the cost of what we typically see in downtown condominium projects.
