Week in Review – April 12th to 18th

The awesome views from the Skylife Collection Suites at Islington Terrace. 

Artists Rendering of a Skylife suite at Islington Terrace

The Skylife Collection at Islington Terrace is a select collection of 1 and 2 bedroom suites, many with dens and media alcoves, starting on the 32nd floor.

With sweeping views of the Toronto Skyline – east overlooking Toronto’s downtown skyline, south towards Lake Ontario, west for great sunsets or north over verdant golf courses – these suites offer some of the best views of the city.  These beautifully designed condominium homes feature light-filled open concept living spaces with 9’ ceilings, expansive windows and modern designer-styled interior finishes and features.

Islington Terrace is located adjacent to the Islington Subway Station (how convenient is that!).  A short walk north takes you to the picturesque Village of Islington neighbourhood. A short stroll east along Bloor St W and you’ll find yourself in the prestigious Kingsway on Bloor community.  Do some shopping at one of the many boutique stores, relax with friends over drinks and dinner at your favorite neighbourhood haunt (there are a lot of great places to choose from), catch a movie at the quaint Kingsway Theatre, with it’s vintage charm and eclectic and exciting movie line-up.

Updates this week: 

Hullmark Centre -5 Sheppard has Registered.  Final closings start the end of May.  Congratulations to all involved.

Getting ready for Spring. 

While the official start of Spring may be March 21st, the real start of Spring begins on that first warm day, when we finally feel like we can throw open the windows and breathe in the fresh air.

And no sooner are we enjoying the turn of the season than we realize it’s time to start our spring cleanse.  Of course, along with the household cleansing, don’t forget that your condominium home requires some seasonal preparation.

To get you and your home ready for Spring, we created a short checklist on how you can make sure your condominium gets the attention it needs.

Spring Maintenance for your Condominium Home

 

The snow is melting, birds are singing and parkas are finally being stored away for another season.  It must be time for a little spring cleaning!  Just as with every home, your condominium requires a little bit of your love and attention to get ready for the warmer weather.  So we’ve put together a few tips to get you ready for the return of balcony and terrace season.

 

1.    Clean Balcony Tracks 
Along the edge of your balcony, there is a finishing strip of metal that should be checked each spring. Cleaning out any debris that may have become lodged between your balcony door and the metal threshold will prevent water from entering your suite and ensure it drains away from your home.

2.    Fan Coil Filters.   Depending upon your lifestyle, your fan coil filters should be changed about every 3 months. Homes with smokers, pets, or residents with environmental sensitivities may need their filters changed more frequently.

3.    Check your Windows.   Many people crank their awning windows open or closed too hard and they become “stripped,” just like a bolt. Usually, the arm (the metal piece that holds the window to the handle and looks like scissors) will come loose as a result. If you over crank your window, you’ll be able to open your windows but you won’t be able to close them again. If this should happen, you will need to contact your Property Management office who will make arrangements for the repair, at your cost. 
 
4.    Check and Reset your GFCI.  To test the RESET button on your GFCI, push the TEST button.  The RESET button should pop-up immediately.  To Restore Power Push the RESET button firmly into the device until an audible click is heard.  If the RESET button does not pop-up when the test button is pushed, notify a qualified electrician and schedule an appointment.  DO NOT use the GFCI until a licensed professional has inspected the GFCI.
