Meet Zoltan Merkovic

Zoltan Merkovic purchased a suite at Lash Group of Companies’ Cloud9 Condominiums in Etobicoke as an investment, and he likes it so much, he may decide to move in! “My boss bought two suites there and suggested I have a look,” says the auto mechanic who lives and works close by. “This is the first home I’ve ever bought, and I was sold on the location and price. Everything is convenient, including major highways, a hospital and schools. I know this is an excellent investment.” Situated at Kipling and Esther Lorrie Drive, Cloud9 is a walk or short drive to TTC, shopping, parks, cinemas, Humber College, the Toronto Public Library, the Woodbine Racetrack and community centres. “This building will become even more desirable as people discover how central it is,” Zoltan adds.

He was not familiar with Lash Group of Companies before buying, and he is impressed with the service he has received to date. “I looked at other condominiums and sometimes found the staff in the sales offices were not helpful,” he explains. “Everyone at Lash is pleasant to deal with. I was totally impressed with how nice and approachable the sales people are.”

He says he also appreciates the building’s striking contemporary 12-storey exterior. “I like the modern architecture. The look is very clean and inviting.” Sure to become a neighbourhood landmark, this condominium’s precast exterior is highlighted by attractive glass balconies and extremely high windows.

Zoltan is also happy with Cloud9’s amenities on the roof level. Appointed by Tanner Hill Associates, these include the landscaped terrace with a barbecue, lounge seating, a kitchen and a fire pit, as well as a multi-purpose party room, also with kitchen facilities. Suite owners who want to work out can access the Club9 fitness centre and indoor swimming pool. “I don’t swim myself, but my guests might,” Zoltan says. “I also think this is a great selling feature if I decide to rent the suite or sell someday.” A luxurious guest suite rounds out the amenities.

Zoltan selected the 529 square-foot one-bedroom design because of the spacious terrace and beautiful views of the city and surrounding parks. “I like the open-concept layout a lot,” he says, “and the quality of the finishes is very high.” To experience life at Cloud9 in person, tour the Tanner Hill Associates-appointed 798 square-foot two-bedroom + den model, attractively furnished with budget-conscious items from Ikea.

Construction is already underway at Cloud9. Suite choices range from one-bedroom to two-bedroom + den designs from 515 to 919 square feet, priced from the low-$200,000s. Ask a sales representative for details on Lash Development’s limited-time “Million Dollar Giveaway” promotion.
