Transit accessible condominium developments remain hot sellers in the GTA with dozens of new build condos being constructed with direct access to TTC subway stations. The TTC’s Bloor-Danforth and Yonge-University-Spadina lines are the primary method of public transit for many Torontonians commuting to and from downtown, but for many in Toronto’s inner suburbs like southern Etobicoke, GO Transit’s Lakeshore West Line is the most direct route into the city. On Royal York Road, just a few blocks south of the Gardiner Expressway, developer Stanton Renaissance's On The GO Mimico will be the first condominium development built with indoor access to the GO Lakeshore line, via a direct connection to Mimico GO Station from building’s lobby.
Stanton Renaissance worked closely with Metrolinx in the design stages of this project, as the agency continues to work towards the goal of spurring transit oriented developments across the GTA. The 27-storey, McCallum Sather Architects-designed tower will contain 242 condominium units ranging between 537 and 2,700 square-feet, all less than 15 minutes from Union Station by GO Train.
In addition to being the first development to include a direct connection to a regional rail station, On The GO Mimico will be the first high-rise development to incorporate GeoExchange and Cogeneration technology, which works by heating and cooling the building with geothermal energy harnessed below ground. This system along with other efficiency measures like an accessible green roof, will save residents at On The GO Mimico around 30% on utility costs and on monthly condo fees.
The development will feature an interesting selection of amenities, including an eco-carwash, a pet grooming station, a high tech gym with yoga and Pilates studios, a party room, meeting rooms and guest suites to accommodate overnight visitors. Even a gourmet fine food store and espresso and coffee bar will be found onsite!
Leave the building and the surrounding neighbourhood is filled with an eclectic mix of restaurants, cafés, bakeries and shops, as well as an array of parks and waterfront trails. The building’s public art contribution will come in the form of a large bronze sculpture commemorating Mimico's past from Inuit artist Abraham Anghik Ruben.
