Toronto is an exciting city filled with neighbourhoods that appeal to a diversity of lifestyles. One of the hottest Triple-A spots right now for new residential condominiums is the Entertainment District, which is bounded by Queen Street West to the north, Harbourfront and the Gardiner to the south, Spadina Avenue to the west, and the Financial District to the east.
Perfect for urbanites who want to live in the centre of it all, the Entertainment District is home to many of Canada’s most significant landmarks and world-class attractions including the CN Tower, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Princess of Wales Theatre, Royal Alexandra Theatre, Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre, Roy Thomson Hall and TIFF Bell Lightbox. The streets pulse with energy day and night, with people bustling in and out of theatres, nightclubs, trendy boutiques, art galleries, restaurants offering everything from sandwiches to haute cuisine, and access to the PATH System. Who needs a vehicle when you live this close to the action!
To travel farther afield, there are subway stops in the area, plus major streetcar lines, Union Station, and two interchanges to the Gardiner Expressway. Residents live only minutes from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, and they can hop onto the Pearson Airport Express to fly out of that facility. With the Financial District only a stone’s throw away as well, this is a great area for residents of all walks of life.
Many new condos feature architecture that pays tribute to the area’s former warehouses. One example is King Blue Condos at King West and Peter Street. Developed by Easton’s Group of Hotels and The Remington Group, King Blue’s design incorporates part of the original Westinghouse building, the former home of the Indian Motorcycle Café and Lounge. Adding to the District’s cultural appeal, the design includes the new permanent home of Theatre Museum Canada.
If you are looking for a condominium surrounded by the best Toronto has to offer, consider the Entertainment District – a new kind of Yorkville for the hip at heart!
