Take a Peak at the Minto30Roe Movement Haus Gym!

The Minto30Roe Movement Haus gym is now up and running at Minto30Roe, and our home owners are loving it! Back in 2012 when Minto30Roe first launched, we had a vision to create a state-of-the-art fitness that redefined the typical “condo gym”.

Four years later, we are thrilled to see this fantastic facility in action! Residents can say goodbye to their gym membership and hello to a usable, modern, effective training center that is equipped for all types of workout routines right at home.

Minto teamed up with Benchmark, one of the city’s leading fitness and training providers, to develop and execute a gym with top of the line equipment in a thoughtfully designed space.
dsc_0033
The 30Roe Movement Haus facility includes three designated training rooms – one for strength training and cardio, one for spinning, and one for yoga, Pilates, TRX and GRAVITY. The equipment mix has been selected for optimum training, using the same machines featured in top tier gyms across North America and we’re are thrilled to see the vision come to life!

Plus, the best part may be that Benchmark offers classes and personal training on an à la carte basis at the 30Roe Movment Haus, so there really is no need to leave home! Classes include spinning, yoga, Pilates, Kinesis training, GRAVITY incline resistance training and TRX suspension training, all taught by certified instructors. You can even book nutrition and cooking classes in the 30Roe chef’s kitchen!

Benchmark services will be up and running at Minto30Roe in January, just in time to assist with your New Year’s resolutions to get healthy!

Minto has teamed up with Benchmark again to create a Movement Haus gym at Minto Westside, offering a similar gym layout and program offering. We can’t wait to see that facility take shape!

30 Roe is Topping Off… With Some Whip Cream!

On Friday October 30th we celebrated as Minto30Roe reached its full height of thirty four floors!

Even though it was a cold and windy day, that didn’t stop an excited group of Minto employees who climbed to the top of Minto30Roe to view the spectacular sites from the rooftop!

To celebrate this exciting construction milestone the Minto team hosted over 200 trades staff for lunch in the soon-to-be Minto30Roe Party Room. On the menu? A hearty feast of a gourmet BBQ of course! (Click the link below to see the full event! )

Our Project Manager Michael Barber expressed his appreciation to the Trades for all their hard work on this Topping-Off occasion. After his speech he courageously volunteered to take a pie-in-the-face and invited all the trades, and some eager Minto employees to toss one at him for the Minto United Way charity campaign! Thanks for showing such great spirit Michael Barber; we absolutely share your enthusiasm for the fantastic progress at Minto30Roe!

Minto30Roe is Living Green!

Minto30Roea 34 storey high-rise condominium near Yonge & Eglinton, is a LEED® Canada GOLD candidate, registered with the Canada Green Building Council. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a certifcation program that recognizes innovation in green building strategies and practices. We caught up with Carl Pawlowski, Project Coordinator for Sustainability, who gave us valuable information about Minto’s sustainability initiatives.

TELL US A BIT ABOUT MINTO’S SUSTAINABILITY TEAM.

The Sustainability team is an in-house department that collaborates directly with the other Minto teams early on in each project to develop and implement the Green strategy. This strategy outlines the sustainable initiatives and specifications for the suites and building, and considers the resident’s needs, local environmental requirements, relevant third party building standards and opportunities for innovation. Minto is extremely dedicated to sustainable initiatives that benefit people now and in the future. We are proud to have won many industry awards like the EnerQuality Green Builder of the Year (2011, 2012, 2014), BILD Green Builder of the Year (2013) and ENERGY STAR® for New Homes Builder of  the Year (2014).

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE SUSTAINABILITY ACHIEVEMENTS AT MINTO30ROE AND WHAT ROLE DO YOU PLAY DURING CONSTRUCTION?

During the strategy and design stage for Minto30Roe, our team included features that were at the forefront of green building in Toronto. For example we were ahead of the curve with our plan to add electric vehicle charging infrastructure at Minto30Roe that allows residents to install EV chargers in their parking space. This is something that many residential builders haven’t yet implemented into their buildings. With construction well underway, we work closely with the Project Manager and Site Coordinators to ensure that environmental procedures are followed and these design features are installed as specified. Once the building is complete, our team will conduct various inspections and testing for factors such as air quality and air tightness. Throughout the entire design and build process, we are collecting and organizing documentation for the third-party programs which Minto30Roe is registered for, such as the Toronto Green Standard and LEED. These documents will be submitted and reviewed by third-party experts, ensuring that our new communities are built to high standards and meeting the targets we strive for.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE GREEN FEATURE AT MINTO30ROE?

I would have to say the Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) is my favourite.  A typical condo without an HRV generally has lower air quality due to less fresh air infiltration and the fact that the air flows through elevator shafts and hallways before entering the suite. At Minto30Roe, the special HRV unit brings fresh air into the suite and transfers energy from outgoing air to pre-heat or pre-cool incoming air depending on desired settings. Combined with a Fan Coil Unit, it distributes the air to each room within the suite. It also includes a particulate filter to remove contaminants in the air, leaving your home with superior indoor air quality and savings in energy costs.grass

Thanks Carl! You can learn more about the incredible green features on www.minto30roe.com under Living Green.

Minto30Roe occupancy is expected to begin in the spring of 2016. There are still 2 bedroom suites available for purchase with a 5% deposit. Contact the Minto Condo Store at 416-915-3800 for complete details.

Construction is Moving Along at Minto30Roe!

If you’ve strolled through the Yonge and Eglinton neighbourhood on a bright sunny day this summer you would have seen the Minto30Roe tower reaching up into the sky. The outer shell is nearing completion and the team is starting to add in all the finishes inside.

Sept 4 2015

The construction team on site has been busy working away, under the hot sun, getting the tower finished. Concrete formwork is now completed up to the 28th floor. Only 6 more floors to go until we top-off! Windows have been installed up to the 20th floor and the balcony railings are being added to the suites.

On the podium, metal paneling is now being installed around the structure, and the team has started to add the roofing membrane to the building on the 3rd and 7th floor podiums. The 3rd floor roof is where the outdoor gardens at Minto30Roe will sit!

Inside, the trades are working on creating the individual suites. Suite framing is complete up to the 9th floor, and drywall has been installed up to the 4th floor. We love seeing the suites come to life and turning this tower from a condo into a community!

Construction is Hot at Minto30Roe!

This summer has been hot, just like construction at Minto30Roe! The tower is taking off, and is now rising above the Yonge and Eglinton neighbourhood. You’ve probably seen it if you’ve been by the area – it looks exactly like our rendering! Life mimicking art, isn’t it beautiful!

Minto 30Roe Construction

The construction team is now pouring concrete for the 25th floor. The pours are coming along quickly thanks to the fly forms being used to help pour concrete on each floor. The windows have been installed up to the 16th floor, making the exterior of the building look almost finished up to these floors!

Minto 30Roe Construction

Inside the building, lots of work is going on to creating the interiors of your future home at Minto30Roe. The corridors of each floor have been framed up to the 10th floor. The suites are also coming along quickly and have been framed up to the 6th floor, making the suites come to life with their individual rooms. The drywalling team is following up framing, now drywalling up to the 3rd floor suites.
