Agents Start Camping on Sidewalk for Chance to Buy at Emerald Park

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) -

ATTENTION: ASSIGNMENT EDITORS

The preview sales event does not start until July 10th but already real estate agents, brokers and their designates have set up sleeping beds, lawn chairs and even cots in front of the Nestle Building at Yonge and Sheppard.

The reason? First crack at acquiring a superb new condominium suite for their clients at Emerald Park, the latest project from Bazis International.

In many ways it is a repeat of the scene at Bloor and Yonge Streets last November when more than 100 people braved the chill and damp to reserve a suite at 1 Bloor, Canada's tallest residential structure.

What is driving demand to such unheard of levels? A combination of factors, suggests Veronika Belovich, Bazis International's director of sales and marketing.

- As oil prices rise well above $140 a barrel, life with direct access to a subway station takes on new meaning. Forget filling the BMW or even the Echo with liquid gold. Public transportation reduces commuting costs and time to the bare minimum.

- The chance to own a home in a project created by the same team that gave the city 1 Bloor.

- Savvy buyers in Toronto recognize the value of a superbly designed project and understand the importance of location for a good return on investment

"Quality always sells," says Ms. Belovich. "And quality projects are what we create."

Emerald Park will consist of two shimmering, green glass towers with architecture never before seen in Toronto, arching high above Yonge and Sheppard. They will be joined at their base by a four-level central podium, which offers not just the amenity space but also a mix of retail and commercial offices as well. The finishes in these towers including Miele appliances, surpass those of any condominium in North York to date.

The icing on this breathtaking cake is that the name Emerald Park stands for more than just the green glass that encases the towers. The entire project was conceived to reflect the latest in Green technology as well.

With the line-up continuing to grow, it is a project that many Torontonians want to be part of.
