Chaz on Charles captures four Gold Awards at The Nationals℠ including Community of the Year!
TORONTO, January 27, 2011…CHAZ on Charles in Toronto just captured four top honours at The Nationals℠ Gold Sales & Marketing Awards, including one of the most coveted distinctions in the new home building industry, “Community of the Year – International.” This pinnacle award presented by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) represents the most outstanding overall project in the world when it comes to location, architecture, design and features. It is the culmination of excellence in the important aspects that affect the quality of life in a residential setting. In an exciting show, CHAZ stood out from the top entries in that category from as far away as South Korea and France. The creation of 45 Charles Ltd. and Edenshaw Homes Limited, CHAZ also beat out many of the top projects launched in Toronto, which currently has the hottest condominium market in the world.
“We are very thrilled to have won this prestigious award,” said Jason Fane, the developer of the project and president of 45 Charles Ltd. “I am delighted that the National Association of Home Builders recognizes the quality that the entire CHAZ team has worked so hard to achieve for CHAZ on Charles.”
David McComb of Edenshaw Homes Limited adds, “This is an incredible endorsement of CHAZ, as it was pitted in completion against the finest developments throughout the world.”
Meticulous planning for CHAZ included locating the condominium on pedestrian-friendly Charles Street East, steps from Toronto’s Yonge-Bloor intersection. This chic, 39-storey glass tower is within walking distance to popular shops, pubs, restaurants, universities, Queen’s Park, the ROM and more.
The tower will rise from a five-level limestone clad podium surrounded by the private walled CHAZ Courtyard with two water features, fire side lounge areas, alfresco dining areas with outdoor barbeques and a tranquil green zone for private meditation. Opulent Cecconi Simone-appointed amenities include two unique lobby areas, one with the lobby lounge area featuring bookshelves, fireplace and cozy banquettes. At the other end, the lobby is divided into the Living room, Wet bar, Dining room and Billiards Room – all of which open onto the landscaped courtyard.
Amenities extend to 24-hour concierge service, a private Pet Spa, fully equipped gym,  Yoga/Pilates Studio and Spinning room, Men’s and Women’s change rooms with Steam rooms, and Relax Studio with massage chairs and Hydra massage bed. A unique Computer Gamers Arena will be powered by the latest online computer gaming equipment, plus residents will have the use of a 3-D Screening theatre and a Sports theatre, Conference/meeting room, and one, two and three bedroom guest suites. The CHAZ CLUB on the 36th and 37th floors overlook the lake and downtown skyline, and is home to  the two-storey Grand Room with Lounge and Bar, and The VIP Room with dining for 20 people.
The luxuriously appointed suites at CHAZ are available in studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and two-bedroom plus den designs priced from the mid-$200,000s to over $1,500,000. Visitors can tour the furnished model suite appointed by Cecconi Simone.
