Top 5 Reasons to invest in Express 2 Condos
Right in the heart of North York, Express Condos 2 is in an excellent location for a great many reasons. The region of North York might be best known for it’s post-secondary schools like York University and Seneca College, as well as Centennial College’s burgeoning Downsview Park Aerospace Campus. With recent connections to the TTC lines, it has never been easier to commute, or set down roots close to these growing North York institutions.
Parents have plenty of choices for their children’s educations in North York – four public school boards operate within the region. For French Language education, there are Conseil scolaire catholique MonAvenir, Conseil scolaire Viamonde, for Catholic and secular curriculums, respectively. And in english, the Toronto Catholic District School Board, and the Toronto District School Board.
And parents and children alike can enjoy countless parks and green spaces within the region, the most notable of which is the famous Downsview Park. With a dedicated stop on the TTC, Downsview Park is a destination unto itself. Walking Trails, Orchards, even a play zone make the 240 hectare parkland a hub for the community, and a popular location for festivals, picnics, and concerts.
Further, North York is famous for it’s excellent shopping. Just minutes away from Express Condos 2 is the lavish Yorkdale Shopping Mall – a destination within the entire York Region, Yorkdale is known as one of the country’s best malls. Over 1.8 million square feet in space, Yorkdale Shopping Centre homes over 250 retail spaces, services, dining options and entertainment attractions, making it a destination for people all over the GTA.
The entire project is set to have a total of 651 units across it’s two towers. The second is in production now. Units will be bachelors, one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms, and even three-bedrooms, each with different layouts that in some cases, also include dens.
A project built to accommodate all lifestyles, Express Condos will be expertly furnished with modern finishing, high ceilings, laminate flooring, and early buyers will be able to customize their kitchen cabinetry, as well as countertops and appliances.
There will be plenty of outdoor space in the development for buyers to enjoy. Every unit will have a balcony, patio or a terrace, and on the 7th floor, in addition to a wifi lounge and library, residents will be able to enjoy a beautiful sun deck – the perfect place to host guests, or just sunbathe on a warm summer day. Further, a private courtyard will include a special barbecue area for outdoor get-togethers.
Families will also enjoy a kids play room, and there will be a private dining room and catering kitchen as well to host dinners, functions, and events. Those looking to exercise won’t need to look far thanks to Express Condo’s cutting edge fitness room and yoga studio.
Buyers concerned about sustainability and environmentally responsible development will be happy to know that the building will feature a series of green roofs, meaning the building will work towards offsetting their carbon footprint.
In addition to this, buyers should expect a wealth of bike storage in the underground garage, so that emphasis isn’t placed on car-culture alone.
