It’s February, and if you’re like us than the excitement of your New Year’s resolution to eat healthy has probably worn off.  We thought we would inspire you with a local, healthy and  yummy restaurant to help you get back on track! Take a look at Fresh, Yonge and Eglinton’s  incredible vegetarian/vegan hot spot that is just steps from Minto30Roe
     

For many people trying to stay healthy and fit can be difficult when your social circle is constantly looking for the next best place to eat out! This desire to dine healthy is what inspired Fresh Restaurant owner and health advocate, Ruth Tal! What started off as a travelling juice booth, has ended up with 4 successful locations around the G.T.A, and a handful of published cookbooks!

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!

Construction is well on its way and we’re just beginning to put the finishing touches on this beautiful building. Not only have we topped of but the windows are now installed up to the 29th floor, suites are being framed up to the 18th and the drywall is in up to the 9th floor! We’ve also begun, painting, tiling and installing.  Metal panels around the podium are going in and the balcony railings are also well on their way!

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.
