New Edge Towers Release Provides Outstanding Luxury and Value in Prime Mississauga Location

When the first phase of Edge Towers in the heart of vibrant downtown Mississauga opened recently, it was met with resounding success from purchasers who appreciated its fabulous location, cutting-edge architecture and beautiful interior design.

Now Solmar Development Corporation is releasing 93 suites on the 27th to 37th floors of Edge Towers, including penthouse, podium and terrace residences, giving discriminating buyers an opportunity to choose from the finest suites in the building. As well as superior design, some of the units have oversized balconies, extending living and entertaining space to the outdoors. The new release includes suites of 484 to 1,300 square feet in size, priced from $319,900.

The new suite release launch is Saturday, January 27 at 11 a.m. at 24 Elm Drive West in Mississauga. Potential buyers can also view the designer decorated model suite.

Edge Towers’ location provides a complete lifestyle, where transit and almost every conceivable amenity is a short walk away, including the Mississauga Civic Centre, Celebration Square (site of festivals throughout the year and a skating rink in winter), the Living Arts Centre, the Central Library, YMCA Centre, Playdium and Cineplex Cinemas.

Scott Davie, president of Davie Real Estate, the firm handling sales and marketing for Edge Towers, says the project offers an extensive choice of floors plans, with 39 in all.

Internationally renowned architect Roy Varacalli of Cusimano Architects designed the building “from the inside out, which allows us to have fantastic floor plans that maximize space and efficiency,” says Davie. “This is an advantage over buildings where the exterior is designed first, as this can lead to awkwardly designed suites because they have to conform to the architecture of the building and may have long hallways and wasted space.”

“When you have superior floor plans, your suite is more enjoyable to live in, you have pride of ownership and you’ll enjoy higher resale value,” says Davie. “From an investment perspective, you’re able to rent a suite out for more money.

“Solmar brought together a great team of consultants for this project. They wanted to give purchasers an advantage,” adds Davie.

Edge Towers, at 26 Elm Drive West, near Hurontario and Burnhamthorpe, will be just steps from the new LRT station, part of 20 kilometres of rapid transit between the Port Credit GO station in Mississauga to the Gateway Terminal at Steeles Ave. in Brampton. It will provide connections to Lakeshore West rail lines, MiWay, Brampton Transit, and the Mississauga Transitway BRT (Bus Rapid Transit). Edge Towers be within minutes of major highways including the QEW, 401 and 403. The Mississauga Bus Terminal is a seven-minute walk away at Square One, the largest shopping centre in Ontario. A host of restaurants, stores, services, and more are within walking distance, making it easy to enjoy a true live, work, and play lifestyle.

Edge Towers’ high standards are evident in the suite appointments, with standard features such as 9-foot ceilings, premium wide-plank laminate flooring, frameless glass shower doors, upgraded baseboards, and kitchens with quality cabinetry, under-valance lighting, quartz countertops, and high-grade appliances.

The building offers the full range of amenities including guest suites, Wi-Fi lounge, fitness centre, media room and more, and the Towers community park will include a children’s play area, a dog walking park, Wifi charging stations, and seating areas to accommodate families who are choosing the condo lifestyle.

Mississauga, which is the GTA’s second largest condo market behind Toronto, represents excellent value for buyers, as its prices are about half those in the big city. With prices of about $600 per square foot on average, Mississauga is becoming the affordable, alternative choice for a lot of home buyers.

Several new major developments are coming to Mississauga, which will boost its reputation as a progressive, modern city. Chinese Canadians form one of the largest ethnic groups in the city and have been buying homes in the city for more than 20 years.

“Chinese buyers are a dominant force in the Mississauga real estate market”, says Davie, “and they are highly sophisticated buyers who appreciate the type of quality and luxury that Edge Towers offers.”

Solmar has been building single family, condominium buildings and commercial properties across the Greater Toronto Area for 29 years. Its projects are distinguished by elegant interior designs and attention to detail that often results in a higher resale value than other local properties.

Edge Towers in Mississauga offers a more affordable option for home buyers

With soaring home prices in Toronto, home buyers and investors from across the GTA are looking to the city of Mississauga for its unparalleled value. Located less than 30 kilometres west of downtown Toronto, Mississauga boasts world class shopping and entertainment venues, and a number of major infrastructure projects are currently underway. The booming local economy is home to several multinational, Fortune 500 companies that range from pharmaceuticals to auto parts. These industries are supported by the strong presence of skilled and educated workers who reside in Mississauga.


Prospective homebuyers are poised to reap the benefits the city has to offer as they realize just how far their dollar can stretch in the Mississauga housing market. New developments like Edge Towers on Hurontario Street offer much larger units for the same price as units in Toronto. This gives both end users and investors an advantage since larger condos typically have a higher return on investment than studios and one-bedroom suites.

“A purchaser or investor can buy a two bedroom plus den in Mississauga for the price of a one bedroom suite in downtown Toronto,” says Scott Davie, President of Davie Real Estate Inc. “Two bedroom units are simply more profitable than one bedroom units and larger condominiums are known to attract higher earning, more secure tenants.”


Priced from the mid $300,000s, the project’s collection of floorplans include an 880-square-foot two bedroom with a den complete with south west facing, unobstructed park views. The premium corner unit opens onto a cozy and functional den space and features plenty of natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows. A three-piece guest bathroom is situated beside the second bedroom, while the master bedroom sports a luxurious ensuite and walk-in closet. Homeowners will love to entertain in the large living and dining area, which overlooks the gourmet kitchen equipped with a peninsula and breakfast bar that seats four.


When complete, the master-planned community by Solmar Developments will consist of three high-rise towers, a new community green space, a daycare centre, retail space and over 1,200 residences. Designed by Roy Varacalli of Cusimano Architects, the buildings feature an elegant exterior design highlighted by staggered floor plates on higher floors, clean vertical lines and multi-level podiums at ground level.

The developer held a grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony in early November where Mayor Bonnie Crombie announced that it would be the first project planned around the city’s new Light Rail Transit (LRT) system. The LRT will run along Hurontario Street and bring 20 kilometres of rapid transit service, connecting Port Credit, Mississauga and Brampton. And with 22 stops planned — including one at Matthew’s Gate and Central Parkway — residents of Edge Towers will have easy connections to GO Transit, MiWay Transit and Brampton’s Züm bus.


Residents of Edge Towers will also be within walking distance to a wide variety of local amenities including Canada’s second largest shopping centre, Square One. The retail complex houses over 350 retailers like Holt Renfrew, Simons and Harry Rosen and hosts over 24 million visitors annually. Also in the neighbourhood is the Art Gallery of Mississauga, Living Arts Centre, Celebration Square, Whole Foods and Mississauga City Hall.

“Today, buyers are very sophisticated,” says Benny Marotta, Founder of Solmar Developments. “They want a luxurious place to live that comes with all the conveniences that they deserve and they want value for their money. Edge Towers offers a high level of luxury and value.”

Condo buyers in Mississauga have a fabulous choice with new Solmar project

Today’s new condo buyers are more informed and more sophisticated than ever before.

With downtown Toronto new condos selling for $1,200 to $1,400 per square foot, and Vaughan new condos selling at $800 per square foot, Mississauga, Canada’s second largest new condo market, is the best value with new condos available in the $600 per square foot range.

Savvy new condo buyers look for a superior location, an experienced builder with a good reputation, good building design and luxury finishes, proximity to public transit, and well thought out floor plans.

Mississauga’s soon to be released Edge Towers seems to have it all. Solmar Development Corp. commissioned leading GTA Architect Roy Varacalli of Cusimano Architects to design three elegant towers that will be visible from Toronto, and compliment the community of artistic building designs that are soon to define Mississauga as having one of Canada’s most beautiful skylines.

For over 25 years, Solmar home and condo owners have experienced superior quality and workmanship, and this has meant a higher resale value than neighbouring properties.

Solmar has built all across the GTA and southwestern Ontario, from Niagara to Barrie, and prides itself on being known for quality of workmanship and integrity.

General Manager of Solmar, Giuseppe Paolicelli, reports that Solmar’s last completed new highrise project, Bellaria Residiences, four residential towers near Jane and Rutherford in Vaughan, are known to be the best quality buildings in the area despite a number of new projects that have been completed by other developers after Bellaria.

“Our intention is to set a new standard in luxury in Mississauga’s prime downtown corridor that will stand the test of time, the same way we have in Vaughan, with our Bellaria Residences”, says Paolicelli. He is also very happy with his floor plan designs.

Scott Davie of Davie Real Estate, the broker looking after the sales of Edge Towers for Solmar said: “Floor plans make a difference when it comes to resale value. A condominium with well thought out floor plans will be more desirable and have a higher resale value than a building with inferior floor plans.”

“Proximity to public transit is also a key factor in determining superior resale value, and Edge Towers will be a three-minute walk to Mississauga’s new LRT.”

Edge Towers is located on the prime downtown corridor just steps south of Burnhamthorpe and Hurontario, and is said to have a superior location to its current competitors, including more convenient access to Highways 403, 401, 407, and QEW.

Local amenities like Square One, Sheridan College/Ryerson, The Living Arts Centre, and a myriad of local restaurants and shops are all close by.

Edge Tower also offers the full range of building amenities, including 24-hour Concierge service, guest suites, two party rooms, a large outdoor terrace area, a galleria, a Wi-Fi lounge, a gym, and a media room, as well as other elegantly appointed amenities.

“One of my favourite things about Edge Towers is the high level of luxurious finishes,” says Davie. “Just stepping into the sales office will give people an impression of timeless elegance. And I am always happiest when I have a very luxurious model suite and everything is standard.”

Edge Towers features luxury finishes like 9-foot smooth ceilings, superior stainless steel and/or fully integrated kitchen appliances, better quality kitchen cabinets with under valance lighting, wide plank premium laminate flooring, frameless glass mirrored closet doors, frameless separate glass shower doors, and marble or quartz bathroom countertops with undermount sinks.

Solmar pays attention to detail with their choice of luxury finishes and realizes that it can be the subtle things that can really help to define superior quality, like the importance of having larger baseboards and casings.

Davie says: “Both end users and investors who choose a better quality built condominium by a better quality builder in a prime location will be happier. A homeowner will be happier day to day living in the luxury that he deserves, an investor will achieve higher rents and attract better tenants, and both end users and Investors will enjoy a superior resale value.”

Edge Tower One will be 35 stories tall and include 293 upscale, luxury condominiums.

Solmar will be releasing its first Edge Tower for sale, very soon.

Timeless Elegance at Mississauga’s Edge Towers Development

A life of luxury in downtown Mississauga is a step closer for prospective buyers, with Solmar Developments launching the first condos in its upcoming Edge Towers development.

The three-tower property at 24 Elm Drive West is set to be the jewel in the crown of the city’s new residential offerings, blending high-quality design and craftsmanship with timeless elegance.

Designed by award-winning architect Roy Varacalli, and further developed by Daniel Cusimano of Cusimano Architect Inc, the uniquely terraced-top buildings – visible from Toronto – will be a notable feature of Mississauga’s skyline.

At the grand opening of Edge Towers’ sales centre and model suite on Saturday, Solmar’s general manager Giuseppe Paolicelli said sophisticated buyers will enjoy the thoughtful planning and design, attention to detail, outstanding craftsmanship, and dedication to grand living that Edge Towers offers.

Paolicelli says “the Solmar touch” sets the first 35-storey tower apart, with residents of 293 condos set to experience the superior standard of luxury that the developer’s elegant Bellaria Residences and Parkview Heights properties have become known for.

“We have a different way of doing things, and we like doing things at a different level, a higher level than the norm,” Paolicelli says.

“Our floor plans are probably the best I’ve ever seen out there – they’re just flawless.”

Each condo boasts a rich yet classic interior, with nine-foot ceilings, wide floorboards and neutral tones offering owners a refined space to unwind.

Surrounded by lush green spaces and a public park complete with play areas for kids, Edge Towers’ first tower features luxury guest suites, and premier entertaining areas, including two party rooms and a rooftop terrace with a unique circular fireplace.

For residents’ enjoyment, there’s theatre room and WiFi lounge, plus a state-of-the-art gym and yoga studio, while a 24-hour concierge ensures an exceptional living experience every day.

“When you move into this building, it’s like living in a hotel – a lot of hotels have that luxurious feel to them. That’s our philosophy,” Paolicelli says. “You want quality, and you’ll get it here.”

Tower one features a mix of one-bedroom to two + den condos now selling from $319,000, with suites up to 1280 sq. f t. yet to come.

With the future Hurontario light-rail transit (LRT) line literally on its doorstep, and the grand Square One Shopping Centre a short walk away, Edge Towers promises well-connected downtown living. Within the three-tower community, there will be 1,200 condominium residences with retail space and a daycare centre.

Scott Davie, president of Davie Real Estate, the broker responsible for sales of the condos, says from the moment prospective buyers enter the specially-designed sales centre, they’ll note the timeless elegance of the marble and granite finishes, and light classical tones, and feel a sense of what life at Edge Towers will offer.

“In the model suite, they see all the standard finishes, and they really feel the quality of the product they’re going to have an opportunity to buy. When they see how it compares to our competitors, it’s head and shoulders above in quality,” he says.

Davie likens the prime, well-connected location to living along the Yonge Street subway line. “People can get much more value for their money and live a similar lifestyle here on the main downtown corridor of Mississauga.”

He expects a great deal of interest to come from Chinese buyers, who comprise part of the largest minority ethnic group in Mississauga.

“The Chinese community is very well-known to be savvy in knowing what’s good, and what to look for in real estate. They recognize the value of the location, the proximity to the LRT, the quality of the builder, the quality of finishes and the floor plans amenities.”

Those important factors, Davie says, will lend to a higher resale value for the condos.

Melding classical and contemporary for a feeling of modern permanence, the well-appointed condo interiors create an atmosphere of relaxation and comfort that’s articulated but not overwhelming, allowing buyers the opportunity to personalize their space.

“We use a lot of stone, we use a lot of design elements and accents that give you enough richness in the interior so that as a person that lives here and occupies the space, you have the freedom to develop your own lifestyle,” says Adriana Mot ‎of Dochia Interior Design.

Thoughtful and unique design elements, from a circular fireplace in the lobby to a unique running strip in the gym, show Solmar’s dedication to tailoring to their discerning market.

On Saturday, Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie helped cut the ribbon at the tower one launch, and praised Solmar’s vision for Edge Towers.

“This is a premium location, because it’s right on the LRT corridor, right on Hurontario, and we’re very excited. Solmar do excellent work, it’s a very premium build. This is really a first for Mississauga to have that quality here, right on Hurontario.”

Ribbon Cutting Opens Sales Centre for Solmar’s Edge Towers

A three-tower development coming to the corner of Hurontario Street and Elm Drive will significantly extend the Downtown Mississauga skyline, both upwards and southwards. Solmar Development Corporation‘s Edge Towers assigns the expertise of Roy Varacalli and Cusimano Architect to a towering trio of 35, 40, and 55-storey highrises. The first of the complex set to undergo its realization, the 35-storey tower was spotlighted this past weekend at a grand opening event attended by the development team and Mayor Bonnie Crombie.

With a ceremonial ribbon cutting, the on-site sales centre was officially unveiled. The marketing materials inside the sales centre — including a large scale model — prominently feature the 20-kilometre Hurontario LRT that will border the property. Touted as the first project to take advantage of the upcoming rapid transit connection, Edge Towers is primed to play a crucial role in the city’s maturation and intensification, a new phase of growth that will inevitably come once the $1.4 billion LRT goes online in 2022.

It’s precisely Mississauga’s development potential that has Mayor Bonnie Crombie excited for the future. “We’re trying to build a complete city, a more livable and walkable city,” said Crombie. “And there’s a real buzz about Mississauga; investment is coming in.”

Crombie put that investment in a more palpable sense, counting approximately 22 towers due for construction in the next five to ten years. “Mississauga is a place people want to be in. We have a thriving economy, we’re business friendly and we have stable governance.”

The building’s architecture differs from the glass box typology that has run rampant in the GTA. At Edge Towers, a multi-level podium of glazing and precast concrete will anchor the project to the ground. From there, the tower’s square footprint gives rise to a volume of clean lines until it reaches its first stepback. The volume dissipates in scale as its west and east elevations are carved away, leaving a staggered silhouette on the Mississauga skyline. “A lot of buildings are fashionable and they go out of date,” said Roy Varacalli, architect of Edge Towers. “We always try to do buildings that are monumental or timeless.”

The western edge of the site will be home to a public park, a $6 million piece of land that was injected with another $3 million to design it. Here, Terraplan Landscape Architects has imagined a contemporary urban park rather than a traditional neighbourhood park, and peppered it with fanciful play equipment, a dog run, and a sheltered seating area inspired by the architecture of the building. A bidirectional walking trail loops through the park while a green perimeter fashioned with naturalized plantings contributes to the urban forest.

Led by Adriana Mot, Dochia Interior Design has crafted a classically articulated interior scheme that emphasizes airiness through colour and composition. The lobby and glass-enclosed galleria aim for a “timeless elegance” designed with stained glass murals and dramatic pilasters. The building’s traditional styling continues up to the fourth floor party room, which spans the entire width of the building. A vegetated outdoor terrace wraps the party room on three sides with multiple lounge areas and a central pergola covering an open flame fire pit. A wellness centre and a fully wired media centre will also be at the ready when residents get their keys.

Over 1,200 units will eventually be built across the elongated property, with 293 residences situated in the first phase. The Tower One Collection, spanning levels six through 30 and starting at $319,900, features one and two-bedroom floor plans ranging in size from 484 square feet to 880 square feet. Start of construction is anticipated for spring 2018.
