Following the successful first phase at IQ in Etobicoke, Remington Group is now offering Park Towers — a phase two, condominium community, complete with innovative suite designs, luxurious on-site amenities and almost two acres of lush parkland for residents to enjoy.
With suites starting from the low $200s, and limited time financial incentives still available, it’s never been easier to own at Park Towers and to be a part of this vibrant west Toronto neighbourhood.
“This is a very tight-knit community, so most of our buyers are end users, rather than investors,” says Teresa Roppo, marketing director for Remington Group. “We’re seeing a lot of first-time buyers, people who grew up in the neighbourhood, or those down-sizing, who still want to live in the area. IQ is an up and coming community that will encompass multiple condominium buildings, with great services and amenities all close at hand.”
Ideally located at Islington Avenue and The Queensway, IQ is a master planned community that is situated on eight acres, right in the heart of Etobicoke.
Park Towers is comprised of two 24-storey towers that sit atop a fourstorey podium. Purchasers can choose from a great selection of onebedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two-bedroom and two-bedroom plus den designs. Floor plans range from 505 sq. ft. to 832 sq. ft. and include large outdoor balconies that offer spectacular views of the central park and surrounding cityscape. Interiors of suites are beautifully laid out with open concept spaces for comfort and ease in entertaining.
Standard finishes include nine ft. ceilings (10 ft. ceilings for some floors), engineered Eco-laminate flooring throughout, and porcelain tile flooring in the bathrooms and laundry room.
Gourmet kitchens offer finely crafted cabinetry with extended uppers, task lighting under cabinets, quartz countertops, ceramic backsplash and ceiling-mounted halogen track lighting. Kitchens also come with four stainless steel appliances.
Opulent bathrooms feature cultured marble countertops, showers with ceramic tiled walls and glass doors, dual flush toilettes and designer vanities.
The luxurious lifestyle at Park Towers extends to the buildings’ onsite amenities that offer residents plenty of opportunity for recreation and relaxation. The sun filled lobby offers a 24-hour concierge station and a cozy lounge. A highlight of the amenities podium is the salt water infinity pool, along with a whirlpool and steam bath.
There is a fully equipped fitness room, games room, outdoor terrace and party room with a private dining area. The fourth floor offers an indoor lounge, outdoor lounge with bar area, an outdoor fireplace and BBQ area.
To the south, residents also have access to a beautiful park, designed by Janet Rosenberg & Studio. The lush outdoor green space will include meandering pathways; a fountain splash pad; art installations, including sculptures; an amphitheatre; and a variety of plantings, including ornamental grasses and an apple orchard. People can stroll through the park or relax in seating areas to enjoy the beautiful surrounding landscape.
In addition to all of these convenient amenities, residents of Park Towers are close to great neighbourhood shops and restaurants, Sherway Gardens Mall, and big-box stores, including IKEA and Costco. The Gardiner Expressway is just five minutes away and the wonderful nature trails and parks of the Humber River ravine corridor are close by.
“At Park Towers, you’re still in the city of Toronto, close to major highways and great shopping, yet you can own a suite that carries for as little as $999 a month,” Roppo says.
“Those are incredible prices when you consider what it costs to live downtown.”
The Park Towers at IQ Presentation Centre is located at 1061 The Queensway. For more information, call 416-253-5838 or visit www.parktowersatiq.com.
