Welcome Home to Minto Longbranch!

Minto Longbranch is welcoming our first move-ins next week!

Before everyone moves in, we got to tour the Minto Longbranch site and take a sneak peek at the completed homes. Even though it was a grey and rainy day, the homes are looking shiny and brand new! PDOs have been completed in Blocks 3 and 4 and these Blocks are now ready for home owners to move in to. See for yourself the photos of our walk through of Blocks 3 and 4 – the suites look stunning!

Wait No Longer – Get Your Invitation to the Priority Preview Event!

The wait is over! West Toronto’s most sought after community of urban townhomes is back with an exciting new release. The first phase of Minto Longbranch was one of Toronto’s most buzzed about communities and quickly became a spectacular success.

Longbranch 2 is the highly anticipated, limited collection of spacious urban townhomes designed for cosmopolitian living and is coming to Lake Shore Boulevard West and Brown’s Line.

These stunning stacked townhomes will include 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom, 2-storey layouts. The community is just steps to the waterfront, GO Station, parks, transit, and much more.

Along Lake Shore Boulevard West a new retail streetscape including cafes, restaurants and shops will line the street below a collection of stacked townhomes above. This retail promenade will be a natural meeting place, an animated gateway into the Minto Longbranch community. With a mix of stacked townhomes in the The Lake Shore and The North Lake collections,  Minto Longbranch 2 will offer suites to suit every lifestyle.

Meet Your Neighbors at Minto Longbranch!

Meet your soon-to-be Longbranch neighbors, Ernesto and Mary! They are a young and energetic couple who has lived in Toronto their entire lives and are excited to start the next phase of their life in their Longbranch home. The couple met at a Burger King downtown back in 2009 and rest was history! They were married in May 2014 and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in October 2015. Mary works as a registered nurse at St. Joseph’s Health Centre and Ernesto is a Data Analyst in the heart of Toronto’s financial district.

We sat down with Ernesto and Mary to talk about what they like about the Long Branch neighborhood and what their looking forward to most in their new home.

Why did you choose to live at Minto Longbranch? What drew you to the Long Branch/Mimico neighborhood?

First and foremost, it was the location and accessibility that drew us to the neighborhood. Given the locations of where we work, we’re both are only a streetcar ride away from our workplace. We didn’t want to move out of the city as we have always been the city type and can’t picture ourselves living in the suburbs. Secondly, we loved the idea of a house-like layout with the structure of condominium. The beauty of it is that there are less common areas and amenities like that of a high-rise thus reducing the cost per square foot and maintenance fees. We love the modern look of Minto Longbranch and feel that it fits our style very well. The fact that it’s located close to the lake is a major bonus as well.

 

What type of Longbranch home did you buy and why and why did you choose it for your family?

We purchased the New England 2 bed 2 bath plus flex den south facing unit (with parking) closest to the main street which was our number one choice. The layout was the primary reason we chose this unit. We wanted the wide open space of a single floor unit which is more conducive for entertaining as opposed to having the space split between multiple floors. The second bedroom will be a nursery for our baby girl. The flex den can be made into an office space or extra sleeping space if need be. We also like that it’s south facing to allow more natural light in and it’s closest to the main street for better accessibility. The dual storage rooms on opposite sides of the patio also eliminated the need to purchase a locker.

What are you two most looking forward to when you move into your Minto Longbranch home?

As first-time home buyers, we’re both looking forward to decorating and furnishing our new home. We have an idea of how we want our place to look and we are most excited to incorporate our personalities and ideas into our decor and furnishings to make our home special and unique.

 

Any hobbies or anything else you’d like to tell us about?

We enjoy travelling to different places at least once a year whether it’s to relax under the sun on a beach by the ocean or take in the sights of foreign cities or towns we’ve never been to. We love going out for dinner and having a couple of drinks with our friends and family. To balance out all the eating, we like to hit the gym. If we’re not out doing any of that, we like to spend some time at home and watch some movies which we look forward to doing in our new Minto Longbranch home.

Meet another one of your Longbranch Neighbours!

 

Meet Christa, a very excited future-resident of Minto Longbranch! Aside from her enthusiastic admiration for the neighborhood’s mix of nature and city living, she has many reasons why the Longbranch/Mimico community is a perfect match for her lifestyle!

 

Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

About 3 years ago, I moved to Canada. I grew up and spent most of my life in Switzerland. So why leave that beautiful place? Well, I needed a change. Been there, done that. And if not now, when would I ever explore another great part of the world. I have not had any regrets since.

I love my job in the pharmaceutical industry and was lucky enough to be able to move within my company to their Mississauga office. What a stroke of luck it was that this gave me the opportunity to move to the GTA which has so much to offer: from city living and amenities, culture, all the way to farms and nature.

 Christa 3

Why did you choose to live at Minto Longbranch? What drew you to the Long Branch/Mimico neighbourhood?

The proximity to the lake and public transport drew me in at first. The location cannot be beat. I can hit Hwy. 427 to get to work and on weekends I can easily catch a train to get downtown – and being so close to transit means there is no problem enjoying a drink or two as I’m out. There are some great culinary finds in the area and shopping is so close. It has been a while since I could just walk to the supermarket and ditch the car.

Although, the floor plan layouts and the unique exterior of the Minto Longbranch development gave the final deciding factor. The buildings have a very European touch. I felt well taken care of by the sales staff and so the decision to buy instead of renting somewhere else was an easy one to make.

 Christa

What type of Longbranch home did you buy and why did you choose it?

I bought the Providence SP at first,  but when I went through the plan in detail at home over the weekend I came to realize that that unit was just not big enough for my purposes. So I went back to the Sales Centre and bought the Urban SP instead (thank goodness it was still available!). I am thrilled with the open plan living room and kitchen area. The rooftop is a great bonus and I can already envision having neighbours and friends over and chilling out.

 

What are you most looking forward to when you move into your Minto Longbranch home?

What I hope for is to be part of and get involved in the community. Being new to the neighbourhood is something we will all have in common, so I’m excited to meet everyone and see them outdoors in the area, on our way to work. I can’t wait to feel connected to where I live.

Any hobbies or anything else you’d like to tell us about?

In my free time, I love to bake and cook. Over 200 cook books grace my shelves and I find it very inspirational to just browse through my books. My co-workers are spoiled by now as I bring baked goods into work at least once a month if not more. And perhaps sharing with neighbours will allow me to experiment even further. I love to be around produce and anything food related, I volunteer at a local farmer’s market – a tough job as I start is 5am, but so rewarding. Cherry, peach, nectarine, plum and apricot picking are a favourite past time of mine as well, including making jam and pies with these wonderful fruits.

  Christa 2

And last but not least, what would life be without travelling? I love going on trips close and far. Road trips are definitely top of my list for a great time, but I also enjoy flying to anywhere in the world that’s new or re-visiting some of the great places I’ve visited in the past. I love to explore new things and places – and getting to know new friends.

We look forward to tasting Christa’s delicious baked goods and are so happy that she is a part of the Minto Longbranch community!
