King’s Landing is not only a Toronto landmark but a masterpiece of architecture. The boutique Arthur Erickson-designed building features curved glass windows and a stepped configuration that allows the residential units to maximize natural light while providing ample terraces and sunrooms with amazing views of the waterfront. This particular executive rental is a rare, generously-sized sub-penthouse at 2,000 square feet. It includes a new designer kitchen, spa-like master bathroom, custom soundproofing, two separate entrances, two terraces, two parking spots and a large locker. Building amenities offer five-star resort living by the lake: indoor swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, billiards, tennis, basketball and golf. Watch the seasons change from the comfort of your open-concept living area at this prestigious address with only 101 luxury suites.
The sprawling neighbourhood known as the Waterfront Communities occupies a swath of the far downtown core that abuts Lake Ontario. It encompasses the sub-area of Harbourfront, which has the highest concentration of luxury condominium buildings in Toronto. Nearby attractions include the CN Tower, sports venues Rogers Centre and Scotiabank Arena, and Harbourfront Centre — the site of nearly 4,000 events a year, ranging from craft workshops and sailing lessons to jazz festivals, outdoor performances and food fairs.
PARKS AND REC
King’s Landing is directly across the street from the Toronto Music Garden. Partially designed by world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Mah, the beautifully landscaped park is inspired by Bach’s Suite No. 1 in G Major, for unaccompanied cello. Like the musical piece, the park is divided into six sections and includes a forest grove of wandering trails, a path through wildflowers and a public amphitheatre with broad granite steps that’s the perfect place to laze or catch a free music performance during summer.
Nearby is HTO Park West, a six-acre park and man-made public beach known for its white sand, Muskoka chairs and enormous fixed yellow metal umbrellas. At night, it’s illuminated by LED lights that transform the dark surfaces of the water basins.
If looking to leave the ‘mainland,’ the ferry docks are a short walk away. 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 at this condo’s doorstep, with streetcars running east-west along Queens Quay. The 509 Harbourfront line 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. There are also north-south routes that run along Bathurst Street (to the west) and Spadina Avenue (to the east) to the downtown core. King’s Landing has a transit score of 99 out of 100, making it a rider’s paradise.
