Carefree Lifestyle Draws Local Homeowner To Cloud9 Condominiums

Photo: Nicola BettsRetired Early Childhood Education teacher Colleen McMichael is excited about the next phase of her life, when she will move from her single-family home in Etobicoke to Lash Group of Companies’ Cloud9 Condominiums at Kipling and Esther Lorrie Drive. “I worried about making the transition from my house to a towering high-rise, so when I saw that Cloud9 would be an intimate residence of only 12 floors, I knew it was perfect for me. My money will still be invested in real estate, and I’ll reap the benefits of condo living. I like to travel, so I will be able to turn the key and go without worrying about maintaining the lawn or other outdoor aspects of owning a separate home. I will also feel safer with the concierge right there.”

Colleen was delighted when she found that Cloud9 offers some ground-related suites. “Mine is on the main floor, so I will have direct street access to the outdoors, which is a big plus. This area has always been home to me, and I like the location. It’s quiet, and the Humber River Ravine is so nice to walk along.” The condominium is also just a brief stroll or quick drive to the TTC, parks, schools, cinemas, Humber College, the Toronto Public Library, the Woodbine Racetrack and community centres.

Cloud9’s architecture is another element that helped Colleen decide to buy. “The lines are clean and fresh, yet the exterior is not cold and impersonal. Tall windows and glass balconies create a lot of visual interest. I also think the amenities are amazing. Right now, I go to Humber College to swim, but once I move into Cloud9, I’ll hop on the elevator to the indoor pool!” Appointed by Tanner Hill Associates Incorporated, the roof-level amenities also include the landscaped terrace with a barbecue, lounge seating and kitchen facility, as well as a fire pit. The multi-purpose party room has kitchen facilities, and the Club9 fitness centre will feature state-of-the-art equipment. There is also a furnished guest suite on the first floor.

Colleen chose her one-bedroom + den suite because of its open-concept floorplan and spacious terrace. “The features and finishes are nice, and the open-concept layout makes the main living area feel quite large,” she says. For a firsthand look at Lash’s design panache, tour the 798 square-foot Tanner Hill Associates-appointed two-bedroom + den model suite furnished with items from Ikea.

She also did her homework before buying. “I researched Lash Group of Companies, including their previous work. Everything got great reviews. I had the opportunity to meet the developers at an event, and I was impressed with their approachability and honesty. If they couldn’t answer a question, they found someone who could.”

Construction has started 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.
