125 & 135 Village Green Square (Solaris 1 & 2), 151 & 181 Village Green Sq (Ventus 1 & 2), 255 & 275 Village Green Square (Avani 1 & 2) & 225 Village Gr Sq (Selene) are condominiums located at 401 & Kennedy Rd, close to Kennedy Commons & Agincourt Malls. These high rises are part of the Metrogate Community - a master planned development by Tridel. The complex also includes townhouses and has a family oriented park as its centrepiece. Units range in size from the low 400 sq ft up to over 1400 for the low rises. Layouts are very practical, with good space utilization & appealing features, including granite counters & stainless steel appliances in some buildings. Amenities are comprehensive, with indoor pools in eariler buildings, & convenient gyms in all condos. Designed from the start to be green, the Metrogate community is LEED certified. It is also family friendly, with the park & a daycare offering help for families.
These units are ideally situated close to public transit & highways. The 401 ramp is just in front of the buildings, & Agincourt Mall with Wallmart as anchor store is just north on Sheppard. South is Kennedy Commons Mall, with a variety of options including Chapters, Metro & other stores. If that isn't enough, Highland Farms & Scarborough Town Centre are also not too far away, as are UoT Scarborough Campus & Centennial College.
Unit sizes depend on which of the Metrogate condos one lives in, but in general Solaris (125 & 135) has the largest units, being the oldest. Avani, being the newest, has smaller layouts, mainly with galley kitchens.
Having said that, all the buildings have practical set ups. The smallest 1 bedrooms are in the 400 sq ft range and go up to high 500 sq ft. Units with dens begin at 600 sq ft and go up to the 700 sq ft area. 2 bedrooms start in the 700 sq ft range going up to 900 + for suites with dens. Finally 3 br suites generally have about 900 + sq ft of space.
All of the units have balconies, with some being juliette style. The views can be outstanding depending on exposure & height - with some facing downtown overloooking the CN Tower and others with the lake visible in the distance.
Fees generally include water, but some buildings also provide internet in maintenance.
It varies by building, but all have 24 hr concierge, gyms, party rooms, billiard rms, patios, theatres, balconies and parking, The earlier complexes (e.g. Solaris) have indoor pools. Some of the buildings also feature 9 ft ceilings & have rooftop patios and golf putting ranges. Most include barbecues.
