AQUAVISTA



Community Master plan





Located on Toronto’s inner harbour alongside the water’s edge, AQUAVISTA is the second phase of the Bayside Toronto community, a fully integrated mixed-use waterfront neighbourhood where people will come to live, work, learn and play.

This vibrant LEED® Gold neighbourhood, led by master developer Hines has been purposefully created in small-scale, people-friendly elements with short streets for a sense of intimacy and community. Buildings will be oriented to the lake with a focus on sunlight and views. Civic uses will include Aitken Place Park, a library, educational facilities, day-care, community services and a grand continuous water’s edge boardwalk and tree lined promenade.

OVERVIEW

Live At The Water’s Edge


Overlooking Lush Parkland And Blue Vistas


Experience the best of both worlds from an east-facing suite in Aquavista at Bayside. Live alongside the gorgeous blue vistas of Lake Ontario, while overlooking Bayside’s lush central Aitken Place Park. Stellar views, sumptuous suite finishes and indulgent building amenities are what make Aquavista Toronto’s most desirable new waterfront address.




Eat, Play, Love

There’s so much to love about this idyllic location. Walk to Sherbourne Common’s art-infused playground, Aitken Place Park’s green spaces, Sugar Beach, Harbourfront’s myriad cultural offerings and the bustling retail, restaurants and shops along Merchants’ Wharf and the Via Velo.


Suite Features

Details No Less Than Divine

Each 1, 2 and 3 bedroom Aquavista residence is beautifully finished with distinctively modern styling and premium features and finishes. From 9′ and 10′ ceiling heights to quality engineered plank laminate floors throughout and expansive window walls that fill the suites with natural light and offer spectacular views of the lake, city, park and beyond.

On The Menu: Gourmet Kitchens

Open concept gourmet kitchens flow seamlessly into the adjacent dining space and feature large granite or quartz work surfaces and sleek, premium built-in European appliances and contemporary linear cabinetry.

Downtime Done Right

European-inspired bathrooms and master ensuites take their cue from the spa, with gorgeous quartz countertops, 5′ soaker tubs, frameless glass showers and custom designed vanities.


Details, Details

It’s the little details that make the biggest difference. Which is why all suites at AQUAVISTA are finished with smooth white ceilings, 7” baseboards, and frameless mirrored and frosted glass sliding closet doors.

Connectivity Is King

What does it mean to live in the community offering Canada’s fastest internet speeds? It means the ability to easily handle bandwidth-intensive applications like HD video, gaming, large media files and high-resolution teleconferencing. This new wireless network will also link to an innovative community web portal, where residences and businesses can connect. Beanfield Metroconnect makes it all possible; living at Bayside Toronto puts you in one of the seven most sophisticated “intelligent community” enterprises in the world.

Neighbourhood

Aquavista: Bayside Toronto’s Next Luxe Condo Residence

Living by the water’s edge overlooking gorgeous views of the lake has huge drawing power. But pair magnificent vistas with exceptional residences and a wide array of vibrant neighbourhood offerings, and an address becomes that much more exceptional. This is AQUAVISTA, Tridel Hines’ second condominium residence located in the Bayside Toronto community– a fully integrated, mixed-use waterfront neighbourhood where people will come to live, work, learn and play year round.
Located on a 13 acre site right along the water’s edge between Lower Sherbourne and Parliament Streets, this $1.1 billion master planned Bayside Toronto community will contain more than 2,000,000 square feet of residential, office, retail and cultural space, creating a bustling neighbourhood unlike anything Toronto has ever seen before.

Street Meets

Bayside Toronto will feature small-scale, people friendly elements for a sense of intimacy and community.
Short streets will encourage foot traffic; the community’s main waterfront street will be pedestrian, transit and cyclist-friendly. Come holidays, the main street will be closed to cars, allowing for a wider promenade. Bustling retail, restaurants and pubs will line Merchants’ Wharf, the Via Velo (which intersects AQUALINA) and the water’s edge, making the area a vibrant destination all year round.

Civic Places & Spaces

Following the “if you build it, they will come” philosophy, Bayside Toronto was designed to accommodate a variety of civic offerings to be enjoyed by residents, workers, commuters and leisure-seeking Torontonians alike. Sherbourne Common’s art-infused playground, Aitken Place Park’s green spaces and the ever-popular Sugar Beach all provide places to gather and relax. A grand promenade and tree-lined boardwalk will run 1 km along the water’s edge, offering vibrant retail on the north side, and water views to the south. And a library, educational facilities and daycare and community service facilities are also in the works.

Business Matters

The easily accessible Toronto waterfront area has already attracted several high profile businesses; Corus Entertainment moved its headquarters to the water’s edge, and George Brown has opened its Centre for Health Sciences campus just to the East. Bayside Toronto’s future plans include Queens Quay Place I and II – 9 storey office buildings able to provide an estimated 8000 jobs.

A Highly Intelligent Community

Home to Canada’s first open-access, ultra-high-speed broadband community network, Toronto’s new waterfront communities will be among the most connected in the world. Supported by state-of-the-art technological infrastructure, residents and businesses with have access to internet speeds up to 100 times faster than those generally available.

Artists In Residence

Adding to AQUAVISTA’S cachet will be its unique designation as an Artscape hub. 80 rental live/work apartments with their own distinctive entrance, elevators and beautifully landscaped rooftop amenity space have been thoughtfully designed for residency by artists and creative practitioners. This will advance and infuse the Bayside Toronto community with a distinctive air of art, culture and creativity.

Leading with LEED®

Bayside Toronto is a vital part of Waterfront Toronto’s LEED® Gold Neighbourhood (Stage 1) and as such, AQUALINA and AQUAVISTA, both highly energy efficient and environmentally focused condominiums, will pursue LEED® Platinum Certification – the highest rating possible. Homeowners will benefit from less energy use, superior comfort and lower energy costs.

Decide When to Sell Your Home?

Decide When To Sell Your Home?
In real estate, timing is the essence.It does influence your home’s selling price. Let’s see if we can make timing work for you.
Status report. Is it a buyer’s or a seller’s market?
When there are lots of people looking for homes but not many for sale, this is called a ‘seller’s market’, because the seller has something everybody wants. When there are more homes for sale and not many people buying them, this is called a “buyer’s market” because buyers have more power of choice. A REALTOR® is the best person to consult about this.
How quickly do you need to sell your home?
In a seller’s market, top price and a fast sale can go hand-in-hand. In a buyer’s market, more sellers are competing for your potential buyer. If you have to sell right now, you may wish to lower your asking price a bit to speed up the sale. REALTORS® are masters at figuring the price-to-listing ratio and know how to attract offers without going unnecessarily low.
Seasonality. Do home sales get frostbite?
It’s true. Winter sales tend to be slower, and Spring sales are more brisk. Regardless, there are always people looking to buy, and seasonality is only one of many factors to consider.
If you’re also buying a home.
In this case, you don’t really have to worry about playing the market. If you sell your existing home for a ‘low’ price, you’re probably also buying at a low price. If you are upgrading to a larger home, this actually works to your advantage.  Imagine when your bigger home is on the upswing. If you’re downsizing from a bigger home to a smaller home or a condo, you need to pay a bit more attention to the market.
Buy first or sell first? The eternal question.
Many people are able to time their sale and purchase so they happen on the same “closing date.” Buyers can make their offer “conditional” on the sale of their existing home, to make sure they’re not left paying for the upkeep of two homes. When selling, you can try to extend the “closing period” to give yourself more time to find your next home. REALTORS® are very skilled at this sort of negotiation, and can make your transitional life a lot easier.
If you find your new dream home before you’ve even started to sell your old one.
Talk to your existing mortgage lender. You may be able to arrange “Bridge Financing.” This is when your lender (the bank) is confident your existing home will sell quickly, and they agree to lend you the down payment for your new dream home.

What does your coffee say about you?

www.realtorpankajpatel.com


(NC) We've all heard the saying “tell me what you eat and I'll tell you who you are.” But if you tell me what kind of coffee you drink, I'll tell you who you really are. The days when the vast majority of Canadians thought of coffee only as a cup of filtered or instant coffee are long gone. Specialized coffee shops have become very popular and recently, single-serving systems like the Keurig systems, have taken up residence on Canadians' kitchen counters. Customers are discovering a wide variety of coffee products and enjoying high-quality coffee in the comfort of their own home.
According to survey results from the book The You Code and the website time.com, your type of coffee can say a lot of things about your personality. If you want to know something about someone you just met or are wondering what that handsome gentleman who just ordered a macchiato might be into, read these matching coffee-personalities:
• Latte drinker: These people like to please others, and are often indecisive. They tend to be neurotic. Sound like anyone you know? Perhaps your best friend who can never ever decide what to order at a restaurant? Take the lead: order her a latte.
• Cappuccino drinker: Obsessive and controlling, they are also creative, honest, and motivated. They make excellent friends but get bored with unimaginative people. Sound like your boss? Or that nosy, control freak colleague of yours? Next time you buy them a coffee, make it a cappuccino, and they'll be in seventh heaven.
• Mocaccino drinker: These folks are ready to try anything. Considered to be trendsetters, they're also adventurous and courageous, and like to indulge themselves when it comes to food. Let's face it: We all dream of being this person. So bring on the mocaccinos.
• Macchiato drinker: Cerebral and refined, they linger over life's small pleasures. You can rely on them in any situation. So next time someone orders a macchiato, pay attention.
These results might not be true for everyone but with all the varieties of coffee available today, you're sure to find one you love. The new Van Houtte Specialty Collection offers these specialty coffees, designed for Keurig K-Cup systems. You can find them on Keurig.ca, in grocery stores and certain retailers.

Take this 3-minute summer party refresher

(NC) Summer is here and along with it comes an endless stream of picnics, pool parties and barbecues where you can kick back and relax with the ones you love. While these events make for great memories, they also come with a lot of work.
As you start preparing for your parties – big or small – here are three important things to focus on:
Location: Remembering where you're going to be and what you're going to be doing is key to hosting a stress-free party. If you're outside, do you or your guests need hats, sunscreen or glasses? If there are children attending, do they need different snacks or toys? Identifying potential issues beforehand will eliminate day-of stress and will allow you to enjoy the party with all of your guests.
Music: Think about the mood you're trying to set and pick the best tunes to complement your party. If you're not a music aficionado, don't worry. There are great apps like Spotify to take the hard work out of creating the perfect playlist. Pick your favorite and hook it up to your speaker system. If you don't want the hassle of cords and wires take a look at LG's new Music Flow System. It allows users to easily stream music via Bluetooth from mobile devices to their different speakers. The Music Flow System lineup includes both portable and indoor speakers that can be synced together – this means you can have music playing in every room of your house, or you can bring the portable speakers wherever your party takes you.
Food: Whether you are catering, cooking or having a potluck, always plan to have extra. This is especially important if you're hosting away from home when you won't have access to your own kitchen cupboards. Having an extra veggie tray or bag of crackers on hand is always a smart move. Just as important is ensuring that you and your guests stay hydrated. It's easy to forget the effect of the heat when you're having fun, but think past alcohol and soft drinks and be sure to add water to your must-bring list.
You can find out more online at LG.com.
