Residents of Vivid Condominiums in Etobicoke will appreciate that the area surrounding this Pemberton Group community is animated by many fall and winter events, not to mention excellent opportunities for holiday shopping.

Vivid is conveniently located just off Bloor Street West, between the Kipling GO station and Islington subway station, offering easy public transit to major shopping destinations. Just a short bus ride away, Cloverdale Mall continues to attract new stores and in-demand brands. It was among the first shopping malls in the GTA to welcome a Target department store. It’s also home to the flagship Hot Oven bakery, the perfect place to purchase a pumpkin pie or empire cookies for a holiday party.

That’s not all. Accessible by TTC and situated on The West Mall at the junction of the QEW and 427, Sherway Gardens is an upscale fashion and lifestyle centre with over 200 stores and services. Every day except Monday from November 14th to December 22nd, visitors can take advantage of The Santa Experience. All children must be registered for this half-hour interactive playtime that includes sing-alongs, dancing, magic tricks and story reading, plus the opportunity for mom or dad to snap a picture with old St. Nick. Proceeds of the $12 per child ticket price goes to Sleeping Children Around the World – a locally based charity that provides bed kits for needy children in developing countries.

However, the immediate neighbourhood doesn’t just offer convenient places to shop – the local community approaches the holiday season with plenty of fun and festive events. Want to get into the spirit of the season? Carolling in The Kingsway is an annual event at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, just east of Vivid at Bloor and Royal York Road. On Saturday November 23rd, 110 singers from across the community come together to perform holiday favourites.

Local concerts abound. Students from The Music Studio will be performing “Christmas Carols and Festive Favourites” on Saturday December 14th at the Creative Village, located at 4895 Dundas St. W., just east of Burnhamthorpe Road.

Community and holiday spirit go hand-in-hand in Islington Village and The Kingsway, the two neighbourhoods that flank Vivid Condominiums. At this great location, residents and their guests can also enjoy the on-site conveniences including the pool and sauna, the billiards room, cards room and theatre. Or why not throw a holiday get-together in the party room?

The suites themselves are outfitted with gourmet kitchens equipped with granite countertops, custom-style cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. For the luxe bathrooms, buyers can choose between granite or Caesarstone countertops with white undermount sinks. Each suite also brings the outdoors in with a roomy balcony, terrace or patio.

Construction is already underway. Suites start from $260,000.
