Bright and modern one-bedroom centrally located in King West Village. This unit in sought-after Charlie Condos features 10-foot ceilings and a spacious terrace. Kitchen includes a large granite-topped island with breakfast bar, self-closing drawers and stainless steel fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave. TTC is at your doorstep, as are restaurants and Toronto’s exciting nightlife. Some building amenities are aerobic/yoga studio, billiard room and lounge with party-hosting capabilities and fully landscaped rooftop garden with pool, seating area and barbeque.
Charlie Condos is situated in the sprawling neighbourhood known as the Waterfront Communities that 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 TIFF Bell Lightbox, home of the Toronto International Film Festival, Princess of Wales and Royal Alexandra theatres, 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
Clarence Square is a small, dog-friendly park just a five-minute walk from Charlie Condos. One of the oldest remaining park spaces in the downtown core, it is relatively quiet and shady, with many large trees and a spacious grassy terrain. There are several benches and picnic tables scattered throughout and a drinking fountain in the centre.
If you want something more spacious, Coronation Park is further south. Located 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 510 Spadina 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 just steps from this condo’s doorstep. The east-west 504A King streetcar runs between Dundas West subway station and the Distillery loop that lies at the south end of the Cherry Street branch. The 504B King streetcar route is between Broadview subway station in the east and the Dufferin Gates of the Canadian National Exhibition. The 510 Spadina is just a block away from Charlie Condos. The north-south route connects transit riders between Spadina subway station on the Bloor-Danforth line and Canada’s busiest, multi-modal passenger transportation hub, Union station. Charlie Condos has a perfect transit score of 100, making it a rider’s paradise.
