Tired of shovelling the snow, mowing the grass, and having to take the car out of the garage to do your errands?  Thinking of giving city/condo living in Mississauga a try?  Well, the first of three Edge Towers in Mississauga’s downtown corridor is on sale now.

The condo has a walkability score of 80, which means “Very Walkable/Most errands can be accomplished on foot,” according to the company that measures these things.  Its 26 Elm Dr. West address is just steps away from Square One Shopping Centre, the Living Arts Centre, Whole Foods, many local shops, restaurants and a couple of parks.

As importantly, the condo complex is located near the future 20-km LRT that will run along Hurontario Street, connecting Cooksville, Port Credit, Mississauga and Brampton with both the Milton and Lakeshore West Go Train lines, as well as local links to MiWay, Brampton Transit and Zum.   The possibility of ditching the car, saving some money, and decreasing your carbon footprint is high with this locale.

The tower’s architectural style is art-deco— the sleek, linear appearance that reminds one of New York skyscrapers. Units have nine-foot ceilings, higher-end kitchen appliances, wide plank premium laminate flooring and frameless glass showers.

And the amenities?  There is a party room and rooftop terrace with, a Wi-Fi enabled games and theatre room, 24-hour concierge service and a fitness centre, to mention a few.  For more details on the details click here.

This first tower will be followed with two more, with heights of 40 and 55 storeys. When the complex is completed in 2020, Edge Towers will offer 1,200 condominium units, new retail space, a daycare, and a new professionally landscaped community green space for residents to pop out, meet, and enjoy the outside.

City living, but still with a community vibe, you might say.
