Extensive amenities at new Tridel community include basketball court

The newest condo offering from Tridel, Islington Terrace, will have one of the most extensive selections of amenities anywhere in the city. Tridel has just released information about what will be available at the new community, and the list is a long one, comprising twenty-five separate items occupying 50.000 square feet of space, indoors and out. In addition to the now standard party and games rooms, rooftop lounge, barbeque area, swimming pool, sauna, whirlpool and yoga room, Islington Terrace will have its own basketball court. The basketball court will add a whole new dimension to the state-of-the-art fitness centre. As the Tridel announcement says, why join a gym when everything you need is all right there in your building?

To keep the children happily occupied, a dedicated children’s zone, with splash pool and play room, will be available.

The Islington Terrace community will be a master-planned community consisting of three towers, from 35 to 45 storeys tall. It will be neighbours with the Islington City Centre at Bloor and Islington, home to a large number of major businesses and services. The Islington Professional Healthcare Centre, home to the Ontario Physiotherapy Association, CML Healthcare, and numerous health clinics, is also located at the corner of Bloor and Islington. Also in the neighbourhood are banking, insurance and medical offices, as well as the Sylvan Learning Centre.

Rolling fairways and manicured greens may not come to mind when one thinks of Bloor and Islington, but in fact, no less than five major golf clubs are within easy reach. These include the historic and highly rated St. George’s Golf and Country Club, on Islington Avenue; Islington Golf Club; Lambton Golf and Country Club; Markland Wood Golf Course; and Weston Golf and Country Club.

With transit and gridlock on everyone’s mind these days, it’s reassuring to know that living in a community like Islington Terrace makes getting around the city very easy. The area has a nearly perfect Transit Score of 98 on walkscore.com. The community will be a short walk from the Bloor Subway, with access to express buses to Mississauga as well. Transit provides direct lines to downtown Toronto, to Pearson airport, to the University of Toronto campus in Mississauga, or to Square One Shopping Centre, among other destination.
