Does anybody know if Airbnb was allowed in Emerald Park? There is a unit nearby me that seems to be doing it. New guests now and then...

Speak to your Condo-board if they made anything EmeraldPark specific.

Otherwise,... Within Toronto, Airbnb are technically illegal,.... but not enforceable until after (positive) results of August 2019 LPAT hearing,...
"Currently, short-term rentals are not permitted in Toronto."
"On December 7, 2017, and January 31, 2018, City Council approved the regulation of short-term rentals in Toronto. The new rules require short-term rental companies to obtain a licence and short-term rental operators to register with the City and pay a Municipal Accommodation Tax (MAT) of 4 per cent."
"However, the City’s zoning bylaw amendments to permit short-term rentals as a use have been appealed to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT). They are therefore not in force. The LPAT had scheduled a two-day hearing for August 30 and 31, 2018, however at the hearing it was determined that two days was insufficient time for the proceedings and a five day period would be more appropriate. For that reason, the August 30 and 31, 2018 LPAT hearing was adjourned and re-scheduled for August 26, 2019."
"The City’s regulations for short-term rentals will not come into force until after the appeal decision is reached."
"If the City receives a positive decision at the LPAT, the short-term rental regulations will come into effect. Soon after, individuals will be given a period of time to submit applications for a licence or registration and the 4 per cent tax will be implemented. More information on what is required to collect and remit the tax will be available at that time."

Did hell freeze over??? Do we have to watch out for flying pigs???

EmeraldPark is finally fixing their wind-damaged door issues,.... by replacing their 4 sets of outer hinge glass doors with sliding doors for the retail mall / office area. Now they can get rid of those broken handicap door buttons

The tower architecture turned out quite well. What's surprising is that the painted metal parts of the cladding are already becoming discoloured as if they were decades old. You can see it especially on the centre column in this photo if you zoom in. It doesn't inspire confidence in the build quality.
