The adult colouring craze that has taken the world by storm for its stress relieving qualities has landed in Toronto. To celebrate the launch of their latest project — Whitehaus Condominiums — Lifetime Developments and Knightstone Capital Management has embraced the growing phenomenon by hosting an evening of adult colouring at the Gladstone Hotel.
Last night’s event was held inside the Melody Bar and featured a wide selection of Whitehaus-inspired pictures to colour, live music by Toronto-based artist Mirian Kay and a raffle draw for a $100 gift card to art supply store DeSerres. Participants were also invited to post about the event on social media, in support of the Lifeline charity foundation which helps underprivileged youth and medically disadvantaged people in the city.
“Whitehaus Condos on Yonge and Eglinton has been inspired by the adult colouring trend which is visible through our marketing and architecture,” said Paul Purewal of Lifetime Developments. “Tonight with your help, we will be donating one dollar to the Lifeline foundation with every social media post using the hashtags #WhitehouseTO or #ColourMeWhitehaus in support of Toronto’s vulnerable and at-risk communities.”
In case you missed the party, you can still participate until Friday, December 11th for a chance to win more prizes, including gift cards to Indigo, Cineplex and more. All you have to do is visit whitehaus.ca, print the illustration, and post a photo of your creation on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #ColourMeWhitehaus.
Located at 2360 Yonge Street, Whitehaus Condos will rise 29 storeys into the midtown Toronto skyline with its sleek, canvas-like facade designed by Diamond + Schmitt Architects Inc. Its location, just north of the bustling intersection of Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue means residents will have convenient access to the Yonge-University subway line, the future Crosstown LRT and the shops, restaurants and movie theatre at the Yonge-Eglinton Centre.
Residents will also benefit from the host of on-site amenities including a state-of-the-art fitness centre, event kitchen, multi-purpose artist studio and a ping-pong lounge that opens onto an outdoor space complete with a dog run. A pet washing station and private resident’s lounge are also included and will be located on the ground floor.
Suites at Whitehaus start from the mid-$200,000s and are well-appointed with nine foot ceilings, spacious balconies, floor-to-ceiling windows, laminate flooring, custom-designed kitchen cabinetry, quartz countertops, tile backsplashes and European-style stainless steel or fully-integrated appliances.
