Welcome to this brand-new, never before lived in unit at Blue Diamond condos. Nestled among Toronto’s most prestigious and affluent neighbourhoods — Forest Hill, Deer Park and Summerhill — this one-bedroom, one-bathroom suite features a built-in kitchen and spacious balcony overlooking a stunning open courtyard (under construction). Street-level retail just steps away and easy access to public transit.
Just south of what’s officially known as midtown Toronto, the neighbourhood known as Yonge and St. Clair is largely quiet and residential, featuring long-established historical homes. In recent years, efforts to revitalize the area has resulted in a mix of new condos, boutique retail spaces and restaurants along core transportation routes. The area is home to several high-ranking schools, including De La Salle College and York School. Nearby is Deer Park Junior and Senior Public School, Upper Canada College and Bishop Strachan School.
PARKS AND REC
Just east of where Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue intersect is David A. Balfour Park, a 20.5-hectare park that features a large open space on a reservoir, ornamental fountains, reflecting pools, a gated garden retreat and a children’s playground. The park overlooks a forested ravine that is a tributary to the Don River. Trails lead down into the ravine and connect to the Kay Gardner Beltline Trail, one of three trails that make up the eight-mile Toronto Beltline Trail, which was built over a former rail bed.
A huge advantage to living in this neighbourhood is access to public transit. Only a 10-minute walk away, St. Clair station is on the Yonge-University subway line, providing easy access to downtown Toronto. A bus terminal and streetcar loop are also located at the station, where the 512 St. Clair streetcar, which has a dedicated right-of-way lane, begins its westbound route. Blue Diamond condos has a transit score of 84 out of 100, making transit convenient for most trips.
