This cutting-edge pre construction condominium project will be the first high rise in Toronto to incorporate GeoExchange and Cogeneration technology which will provide its residents with significant savings on cooling and heating costs. Additionally, future residents will be able to enjoy one of the best views that condominiums in Toronto can offer.

Residents will also have convenient access to lakefront trails and verdant parks.
In addition to proximity to unique and upscale restaurants and brand name stores, the developments prime location gives its residents a variety of commute options, including an onsite GO station and Union Station just fifteen minutes away.
The developer is offering a total of 14 floorplans ranging from one bedroom, one bathroom to two and a half beds and two bathrooms. The options are as follows: 1 bedroom (1 bath), 1.5 bedrooms (1 bath), 2 bedrooms (1 bath), 2 bedrooms (2 baths), and 2.5 bedrooms (2 baths).

On The Go Mimico has a variety of luxury amenities planned for its residents. A green roof featuring BBQ grills will allow residents a breath of fresh air whenever needed.

One unique aspect of the building is its GeoExchange and Cogeneration technologies. These technologies will lower utility bills and maintenance fees for its residents while simultaneously reducing the building’s impact on the environment. The estimated savings on resident costs is 30% per month.
This does not sacrifice any amount of luxury available within the units themselves. Contemporary finishes include Italian designed kitchen cabinets which come in a variety of colors, textured finishes, open-style islands, quartz or CaesarStone countertops and a stylish selection of backsplashes and stainless steel appliances. The space efficient layouts are designed to make living in a smaller space feel large.
The project has gained a large amount of attention for its innovative transportation and environmental features. As the first Toronto condo project to be connected to a Toronto GO station, On The Go Mimico is supported by the city council, particularly Coun. Mark Grimes.
It was also nominated for Quest 2015 Community Energy Building Awards for the environmental awareness present in its build and design.This development was designated as a finalist for its GeoExchange and Cogeneration technologies, which stores energy in the ground to recycle when necessary. This reduces greenhouse gases, thus creating a positive trend in the condominium market of decreasing the industry’s environmental footprint.
Developer Stanton Renaissance has created a niche for itself in the Toronto development community with its focus on revitalizing the land through its cutting-edge, community and environment concentrated buildings. The company’s leader, Louie Santaguida, prides himself on his ability to see great value where others may not.
