Achieving a healthy, active lifestyle is easier when you live in a wellness-conscious neighbourhood. Located in the booming Yonge and Eglinton area, the CityLights on Broadway community by Pemberton Group is surrounded by popular sports and fitness shops, vegetarian restaurants and is close to parks with outdoor trails for running, hiking or cycling. It will be simple for residents at CityLights’ first building and those at the newly released CityLights South Tower to adopt a holistic approach to their health.
Runners will love visiting the Running Room at 2629 Yonge Street. Pick up new pair of shoes, a nifty GPS watch or some sleek running gear to take your routine to the next level. Plus, the Lululemon Athletica store at 2558 Yonge Street offers stylish apparel for workout aficionados. Treat yourself to a new outfit to get motivated and look trendy on the track.
No matter which sport you prefer, in the immediate neighbourhood are TWO Sporting Life locations: one at 2454 Yonge; and the other just a few blocks north at 2665 Yonge. Take your pick as they both have it all. Whether you’re in need of a new pair of skis, a snowboard or even a bike, a one-stop-shop for athletic living is just around the corner.
After you purchase your new gear, you’ll be itching to get outside and use it! Start your exploration of the abundant area green space at Blythwood Ravine Park. Known as the kick-off destination for one of the most beautiful trail systems in Toronto, this park connects to Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens to the west and Sherwood Garden on the east. Muir’s name may sound familiar. In 1867 he wrote the patriotic song, ‘The Maple Leaf Forever’. Open year-round the parks contains a full complement of their own maple trees, plus a small remnant of trees that date back over 150 years to the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence forest. Dog owners will appreciate that there are several off-leash locations too.
Back on the local activity hunt, you’ll find Anytime Fitness, a gym at 2739 Yonge or you can Zen-out at Yoga Tree at 40 Eglinton Avenue. CityLights’ desirable neighbourhood is also teeming with plenty of healthy eating options to accommodate your balanced lifestyle. Fresh at 90 Eglinton Avenue features endless vegetarian and superfood dishes to satisfy your inner herbivore, while Noah’s Natural Foods at 2395 Yonge Street offers plenty of organic and specialty foods.
You could even splurge on a treadmill for your suite at the Treadmill Factory located at 2656 Yonge Street.
At CityLights staying in shape won’t be a chore – and you won’t even need to purchase your own equipment to make exercising a breeze because the community features over 28,000 square feet of impressive amenities at The Broadway Club housed within the central podium between the two towers.
In the 4th floor Sports Court, residents can play badminton or challenge family and friends to a rousing game on the basketball half-court. The 5th floor Fitness Centre will have a yoga, Pilates and spinning studio; cardio studio with treadmills, elliptical and spin bikes; strength training with fit box and free weights; men’s and women’s change areas with showers and steam rooms; plus a juice bar and lounge. The landscaped podium rooftop will be graced with two pools (one with a waterfall, the other with hammocks) connected by a bridge, and surrounded by cabanas; lounging areas; open fire pits with seating; and barbecue areas. The tiered amphitheatre will be ideal for watching a movie under starry skies on warm nights.
Add to this stellar location the amazing onsite amenities, and Pemberton’s renowned high-quality finishes, plus prices starting at a remarkable $199,990, it’s easy to see why CityLights represents the area’s best value!
