South Beach style on Lake Ontario
10 April 2008 09:36
Reminiscent of various South Beach nightspots, a â€œwowâ€ factor is at work in the complexâ€™s lobby.
Fabulous, famous South Beach! Youâ€™ve heard of it, and now itâ€™s coming to Park Lawn and Lakeshore, mere minutes from downtown Toronto. Situated on four beautifully landscaped acres, South Beach Condos + Lofts reinvents the resonance between where you live and how you live.
This is more than a home; itâ€™s a retreat. Imagine returning home from a demanding day on Bay Street and having everything you need to relax and enjoy life in one place. You can bike, jog or walk on the 350-km Martin Goodman trail, right outside your door, or meander into nearby Humber Park with its peaceful open spaces.
Indoors, you can plunge into the pool or let the cares of the day evaporate in the sun on the cabana deck. Work the kinks out of your body in the fully-equipped gym or the luxurious SOBE full-service spa, then join friends at the cafÃ© or in the Ocean Drive Lounge â€” the entertainment hub of this new community.
Creating a vibrant community that caters to residentsâ€™ unique needs and wants is the brainchild of Amexon Development Corporation, one of the largest, most esteemed and respected development groups in Toronto.
The companyâ€™s extensive portfolio encompasses high-quality projects in office, commercial, residential, industrial and hospitality developments. For over 35 years, the Amexon name has been synonymous with building excellence and tenant satisfaction.
South Beach Condos + Lofts, one of Torontoâ€™s most prominent â€œthemedâ€ developments, caters to those who value detail and design.
Sophisticated, trendy designs have been created by Torontoâ€™s award-winning II BY IV Design Associates Inc., recipients of more than 120 awards for the spectacular spaces they have created for clients.
Together, Amexon and II BY IV have envisioned the perfect blend of form and function.
The lavish lobby, complete with tangerine chandeliers five feet in diameter, glowing glass walls, diaphanous curtains and eclectic furnishings, ensures the entrance is nothing less than stunning.
â€œThereâ€™s a huge â€˜wowâ€™ factor at work here,â€ says Dan Menchions, founder of II BY IV Design Associates. â€œWe adapted the South Beach style with an elegant, understated twist, and thought about what would translate best to the specific environment of our site.â€
South Beach Condos + Lofts combines the richness of sophisticated design with the serenity of modernism to offer tomorrowâ€™s urban lifestyle today.
Sumptuous layouts, rich colours and impeccably-detailed finishes evoke the shimmering allure of sun and sand in each suite. South Beach is a home that rivals the worldâ€™s finest five-star resorts.
South Beach Condos + Lofts, a $250-million-plus â€œthemedâ€ development totalling 626 condominium units and lofts, incorporates many unique design elements made famous in the timeless architecture of South Beach.
A retail gateway, fronting the development, captures the famous South Beach art deco skyline.
The practical luxuries of an indoor pool, steam room and sun deck with private cabanas are part of your new life in this unique community.
Add to this a fully-equipped gym, squash courts, juice bar, yoga/meditation rooms, a quiet garden, whirlpools, a full-service SOBE spa and on-site gourmet restaurants.
Other amenities include a multi-purpose residential lounge, business centre, Hollywood-style screening room, library, hotel-style guest suites, wine storage, kids play area and a pet day care.
All this is mere minutes from the busy downtown, but a world apart, says Jason Shiff, Amexonâ€™s sales manager.
â€œItâ€™s exciting, itâ€™s social â€” itâ€™s cool,â€ he says.
This exciting new development is only 10 minutes from downtown, with public transportation right at your doorstep as streetcars run along Lake Shore Boulevard.
Lakeview living starts from $188,000 to more than $1 million, with maintenance fees at 38 cents per square foot, plus hydro. The presentation lounge will launch this spring. Construction is slated to begin this fall, with occupancy in late 2010.
