There’s a common misconception in real estate that condominium living is only suited for singles or young couples. This certainly is not the case at Emerald City in North York. The master-planned community envisioned by ELAD Canada is packed with family-friendly activities, attractions and amenities. The development’s final addition, Lumina, boasts access to a wealth of shared amenities designed with rest, relaxation, entertainment and inclusivity in mind.


Lumina features shared access to amenities at The Peak and The Point Condominiums, which are also situated on Block C of Emerald City, just south of Helen Lu Road. These shared amenities include a theatre room, multipurpose room with common lounge and billiard table for entertaining, a fully-equipped fitness centre with a yoga studio, and an indoor swimming pool with an adjacent hot tub.


Lumina’s grand entrance lobby was designed by the renowned Tanner Hill and Associates and comes complete with convenient concierge service. Families can spend quality time in the vibrant Family Play Lounge, take a dip in the indoor pool or get some fresh air on the landscaped outdoor terrace and barbecue area, all of which are located in and shared with the other condominiums on the block. There’s even a fully furnished shared guest suite available for overnight guests.


Residents of Lumina will also be steps away from the new Parkway Forest Community which features an aquatic centre, where they can participate in various programs and activities for all ages. The state-of- the-art facility also houses a full-size gymnasium, weight room, dance studios, running track, craft rooms, commercial teaching kitchen, green roof and a YMCA-run daycare centre.


For your shopping convenience, the nearby Fairview Mall offers over 160 stores and services, including Hudson’s Bay, H&M and an Apple Store. Plus, with its close proximity to the Don Mills subway station and major thoroughfares like Sheppard Avenue, the DVP and Highway 404, Lumina is ideal for those who have to commute to downtown Toronto and other areas of the GTA.


Comprised of a planned 13-storey tower and seven-storey Oasis Suites, the WZMH-designed mid-rise is characterized by its sleek and contemporary facade. The building’s large window walls, spandrel glass, expansive balconies and red brick accents on the podium level help create a timeless aesthetic that blends well within the community and adds a modern touch to the neighbourhood streetscape.


Priced from the low $400,000s, the homes at Lumina are available in one- and two-bedroom floorplans with flex options as well as large three-bedroom units that are perfect for families. Designed by Tanner Hill and Associates, each home offers spacious open-concept layouts with luxurious features and elegant finishes.


Lumina is your final chance to own a new condominium at Emerald City, so be sure to visit the presentation centre to see the displays, browse the floorplans and tour the beautifully finished model suite. Hours are Monday to Thursday from 11am to 6pm and weekends from 12pm to 5pm.
