MintoMidtown at Yonge St. and Eglinton Ave. in Toronto has achieved LEED Gold certification

Midtown - Exterior 3_NEWMintoMidtown at Yonge St. and Eglinton Ave. in Toronto has achieved LEED Gold certification, making it the largest multi-residential LEED certified condominium in North America.  

After its first year of operation through efficient design and resident participation, MintoMidtown saw exceptional savings in energy consumption, says Minto. Homeowner costs for energy and water were reduced on average by $90 per month, compared to suites built to the standards of the Model National Energy Code for Buildings as verified by the Commercial Building Incentive Program. Collectively, these savings amount to more than $1 million.

Minto has three LEED Canada certified high-rise condominium communities, totaling 1,417 suites.

“Environmentally responsible building is a key component of Minto’s corporate philosophy,” says Andrew Pride, vice-president, The Minto Group. “We created an Energy Management Division in 1999, and today we are the only builder to have an internationally recognized Green Team. We continually build on the expertise gained from each development and raise the bar for sustainable building.”

The buildings include features such as the ‘all-off’ switch, which offers residents simplicity when it comes to energy savings. Heat Recovery Ventilators circulate fresh filtered air directly from outside, resulting in a healthier home. The Minto sponsored bike-share program at MintoMidtown, a first in a residential building in Toronto, gives people the opportunity to live a healthier lifestyle while reducing their carbon footprint. MintoMidtown also features a rainwater-fed fountain and LED lighting in the large courtyard nestled between the two buildings. The majority of construction materials were locally produced and 85 per cent of the waste was diverted from landfill.
