New condos in Mississauga with boutique hotel perks
Imagine relaxing at home and picking up your phone to order room service. Or theater tickets. Or call the valet about your vehicle.
For buyers of condominium units in EXS – Exchange Signature Residences, the latest tower in Mississauga’s Exchange District community – the perks of a luxury hotel will be part of the owners’ experience.
EXS is part of a planned community of four buildings being developed by Camrost Felcorp Inc. Located on City Center Dr. in downtown Mississauga, the condos are within walking distance of City Hall.
The first two residential floors of the 31-story EXS Tower will be a luxury boutique hotel with features available to all building owners. They will have access to all the amenities of the hotel: an executive concierge, room service, a porter, a valet, a carpooling application and the possibility of booking a cleaning service, for example.
“We knew we had an opportunity to introduce something new and different to Mississauga,” said Rob Klopot, President and CEO of Forest Hill Group, Property and Lifestyle Managers. “Our residents will be pioneers, people who like to be at the forefront of the future.”
Based on his experience with other properties, Klopot says that once residents have tried some of the services, “it becomes routine and part of their way of life.”
The tower will also house retail and commercial spaces, including a restaurant operated by EDO Group, a company that pioneered sushi in Canada in the 1990s and is highly visible as a supplier of sushi to the Scotiabank Arena.
Daniel Chaim, COO of EDO Group, is excited about the opportunity to be part of the nascent EXS community. The new restaurant has yet to be named, but Chaim promises it will be a place where customers will feel at home and with accessible prices.
“Hospitality and service are all part of our quality mindset,” Chaim said. “We want to be part of the daily life of the community.
Joseph Feldman, vice president of development for Camrost Felcorp, says quality will be evident in every aspect of condo units, from Miele appliances to Kohler fixtures to lifestyle amenities. Each condominium will have laminate plank flooring throughout, with the exception of the porcelain tiles provided for the washrooms.
Additionally, EXS will have its own dedicated health and wellness center with a half-size basketball court, indoor pool, hot tub and sauna, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. technology. The building will be heated by geothermal energy.
EXS offers 250 suites ranging in size from 555 to approximately 1,000 square feet and floor plans for one-bedroom, one-bedroom den, and two-bedroom units. Pricing starts at $790,900 and goes up to around $1.5 million.
Residents of the new Exchange District, meanwhile, will also benefit from the new downtown Mississauga.
“We are very excited about the way Mississauga has designed its downtown,” Feldman said. “There are wider sidewalks, improved paving and most streets are tree-lined, and they encourage retail activity to certain specifications.”
“The Exchange District is a vibrant community with a pedestrian realm,” Feldman added. “We are creating a destination with a central plaza lined with retailers.”
Also a short walk away, right next to the condo community, is the Square One Mall. A short walk in the opposite direction will bring residents to Kariya Park, home to many cherry blossom trees that were a gift from Mississauga’s sister city, Kariya, Japan.
EXS Residences is unique, given its “unparalleled service offering,” Feldman noted. “To resonate with today’s shoppers, we needed a unique product offering. We are not planning another building like this in the city center.
Feldman says that in everything his company builds, “We build for the end user; ultimately, we build houses.
In this case, the planned residents of the new condos will fall into two categories, Klopot says. Young city dwellers and 27-40 year olds will be tempted by the offering, he said, which also includes an activation space, a place where community programming can take place and where brands and services can showcase their products. and allow customers to try them.
“It enables experiential marketing where brands can interact with the consumer, whether it’s a new Jaguar vehicle model or a new cafe with a food market,” Klopot said. “We expect programming to be organic and community driven.”
EXS, designed by IBI Architects, is under construction and expected to be completed in 2024. Feldman is thrilled to be part of the revitalization of downtown Mississauga and hopes EXS residents feel the same way.
“It will be a one-stop shop and a destination,” he said. “We are creating a vibrant community where everything is at your fingertips.”
