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.

88’s ‘Breakfast with Your Neighbors’ Event Was a Great Success!

88’s ‘Breakfast with Your Neighbors’ Event Was a Great Success!

 

Minto 88 Homeowners got up bright and early this past Saturday morning to enjoy a gourmet breakfast, meet their neighbours and have the opportunity to chat with the Minto team of experts!  The event took place in 88’s stunning party room, and what better way to congratulate the purchasers for their new home, then to invite them to one of their very own beautiful amenity spaces!

Paul Martin, our Manager of Performance Audit & Condominium Operations, opened up the event with a warm welcome and he, along with Minto experts from our Construction department, Master Care Department, and Sales Department, provided some important details regarding the building’s Construction, Green features, and Mastercare related items! The Experts wandered through the crowd to answer any of the resident’s questions about their suite and building.20151128_093736_resized

The Minto team was extremely excited to meet our homeowners, hear their feedback and host them in the newly finished party room!

We were also thrilled to show off the completed time-lapse video showing construction of 88 from 2013 to today. For the last 2 years we had a camera set up to take a photo of the construction site every 10 minutes to compile this beautiful video of our progress. It is quite amazing and something we are very proud of.

Thank you to all those who attended our event! We hope that everyone enjoyed the great food, had a chance to meet a new neighbour, and had their building questions answered.  What a great way to celebrate with our wonderful new homeowners! Take a look at our stunning Party Room!
