Take a good idea and turn it on its head and make it a brilliant idea. That’s what Great Gulf Homes has accomplished with its 40-storey Monde Condo on Queens’ Quay East in the Easy Bay front neighbourhood.
A balcony is a good idea as it adds to living enjoyment by providing space, views and fresh air. Turn that balcony 90 degrees, cantilever it perpendicular to the building, face it on 3 sides with frosted glass, allow two storeys between it and its neighbour and you have nothing short of brilliant outdoor space. Add to that, the Monde Condo’s proximity to waterfront and you can only imagine the views of the blue water and blue sky.
For Monde Condo owners, your backyard is the new Sherbourne Common, the first water park in Canada that functions both as a stormwater treatment basin and as parkland with amazing water features. There is the “Light Showers” water tower, a children’s playground and beautiful night lighting that plays with the water as it falls around the sculptures.
The TTC bus service runs along Queen’s Quay East and Sherbourne. The Monde Condo developers are determined to achieve the LEED Gold certification bringing both environmentally sustainable living and a strong potential for lower cost building operations and maintenance for homeowners.
Centered in the building’s podium is a large atrium bringing light and life. The podium also houses retails shops and eateries. Above the podium rises a glass walled tower with 513 units ranging in size from the 483 sq. ft. 1-bedroom unit, to the 1-bedroom plus den unit to the 2-bedroom 2-bathroom 1253 sq. ft. unit.
Each suite is individually metered for water, electricity, heating and cooling. In-suite Energy Recovery Ventilation units reduce energy consumption and improve air quality. Smooth ceilings are 9 ft. and natural light floods in from the floor to ceiling windows. Except for the bathroom and laundry area, flooring is engineered hardwood. Kitchens, designed by Ceccone Simone, use contemporary cabinetry and provide display shelves and seating space. Countertops for the kitchen and bathroom are either Corian or granite and backsplashes are glass tiles.
The appliances include an integrated counter-depth refrigerator, stainless steel built-in oven with ceramic 4-zone cooktop, stainless steel microwave an integrated dishwasher and an energy efficient washer and dryer.
