Bike Storage

Designated bicycle storage areas

Electrical Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

Green Roof (256m²)

Combating the urban heat island effect, the green roof at minto775 will also contribute to managing stormwater and increasing biodiversity in the area.

Rain Water Harvesting (22.4m³ tank – holds 22,400L)

A cistern collects water on rainy days and stores the water for future use. The landscaping at minto775 will be watered using this harvested rainwater.

Water Efficient Fixtures and Fittings (40% better than Ontario Building Code standards)

Specially designed showerheads provide a comfortable shower while using up to 25% less water than a standard showerhead. Toilets in each suite are high-efficiency dual flush models, which encourage reduced water usage and cost savings.

Construction Waste Diversion (78% Diverted)

Minto775 King reduced the amount of construction waste it sent to landfill by implementing a construction waste management plan and working with waste haulers to divert more than 75% of waste construction materials.

HRVs, Fan coils and Improved Air Quality

Each suite is uniquely enhanced with a heat recovery ventilator (HRV). Suites at minto775 bring fresh outside air directly into the suite through the HRV whereas typical condominiums receive corridor air from under the entry door. The HRV delivers fresh, filtered outdoor air to each suite and circulates that fresh air throughout the suites for improved ventilation and living comfort.

Humidity Control

Each bathroom exhaust fan has an adjustable built-in humidity sensor, which turns the fan on when the humidity exceeds the setting on the switch – helping to prevent the build-up of mold and mildew.

Low Emitting Materials

Environmentally friendly underlays, hardwood, ceramic flooring and low-toxicity paints in each suite significantly reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air.

Multi-Chute Recycling

At minto775 every floor is equipped with a sealed garbage chute room with a bi-sorter, providing three choices for disposal.

All-Off Switch and Green Plugs

The all-off switch, located at the entrance of the suite, provides simple convenient in-suite lighting and plug control. One flick turns off all fixed lighting and designated green plugs.

Efficient Lighting

Each suite is equipped with compact fluorescent lights. These lights last up to 10 times longer and consume less than one-quarter of the energy compared to their incandescent counterparts.

ENERGY STAR® Appliances

ENERGY STAR® appliances are standard in every suite and include stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher and front-loading washing machine. ENERGY STAR® qualified products use 30% less energy to do the same job as non-ENERGY STAR® qualified products, saving homeowners money while creating fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

Programmable Thermostat

The fully programmable thermostat enables control of the temperature and airflow in your suite. The thermostat allows homeowners to set the temperature to their comfort level when home and adjust for increased energy savings when you are out of the suite over a 7-day schedule.

Sub-metering Utilities

Each suite’s electricity and hot and cold water are individually metered, ensuring that homeowners only pay for their in-suite consumption.
