Welcome to the LakeFront condos! Completed in 2020, the 47-storey building soars majestically over the new 50,000-square-foot Loblaws flagship supermarket at Lake Shore Boulevard and Bathurst Street. This never before lived-in suite features a stylish kitchen with quartz countertop and integrated appliances, and an elegant bathroom with Carrera marble floor and wall tile. Hotel-style amenities include a fitness zone, pet spa room, outdoor golf putting and barbecue area with alfresco dining. Close to public transit, shopping, restaurants, entertainment and more.
The sprawling neighbourhood known as the Waterfront Communities occupies a swath of the far downtown core between Queen Street and Lake Ontario (north-south), and Yonge and Bathurst Streets (east-west). The area includes mainly midrise and highrise condominium buildings, many of which contain smaller one and two-bedroom units, though there are some older buildings with larger, more expansive suites. Nearby attractions include the CN Tower, Harbourfront Centre, and sports venues Rogers Centre, Scotiabank Arena and BMO Field located in Exhibition Place, which is home to the yearly summer-ending event, the CNE.
PARKS AND REC
Little Norway Park is a small, dog-friendly park a five-minute walk from the LakeFront. If you want something more spacious, Coronation Park is immediately to the west along the Martin Goodman Trail, which spans 22 kilometres from east to west along Toronto’s waterfront. The park has three baseball diamonds, an off-leash area and an outdoor ice rink in winter.
There are plans for a 20-acre park above the Union station rail corridor between Bathurst Street and Blue Jays Way. Aptly named Rail Deck Park, implementation is intended to be phased to help manage the anticipated cost and complexity of the project.
If looking to leave the ‘mainland,’ the ferry docks are a 30-minute walk away or a short trip on the 509 Harbourfront streetcar. From here, you can take one of three boat trips to the Toronto islands, comprised of most notably Centre Island (home to Centreville Amusement Park), Hanlan’s Point and Ward’s Island. The popular recreation destination is considered to be the largest urban car-free community in North America. There is ample parkland suitable for picnicking, several gardens and playgrounds, beaches, bicycle paths and a disc golf course. Canoes, kayaks and paddle boats can also be rented on the island.
Public transit is literally at this condo’s doorstep. The 511 Bathurst streetcar runs between Bathurst subway station and the Exhibition loop, stopping just steps from the LakeFront to transit riders. The 509 Harbourfront line picks up and drops off at the same location. The route connects to Canada’s busiest, multi-modal passenger transportation hub, Union station, to the east, passing through a dedicated underground streetcar station after descending from the road surface. The Lakefront has a transit score of 93 out of 100, making it a rider’s paradise.
