As someone who has traveled extensively, I can tell you that right here in Toronto, we have one of the most beautiful waterfronts of any large metropolitan city in the world. Stretching from Etobicoke Creek and the burgeoning Humber Bay Shores in the west to the Rouge River in the east, our section of Lake Ontario’s shoreline is home to iconic buildings such as the CN Tower and Rogers Centre, the eclectic galleries and shops at Harbourfront, several well-loved beaches, marinas, yacht clubs, as well as the ever-popular 22-km Martin Goodman Trail. Throughout the year, this public pathway sets the scene for active walkers, joggers, bicyclers and inline skaters who enjoy beautiful parkland along the way. Sports-lovers appreciate living close to Air Canada Centre as well.
Our skyline is also punctuated with many beautiful condominiums where fortunate owners can revel in spectacular lake views and the calmness that comes with living near water. There is a unique appeal that comes with gazing out over a massive expanse of water that is fascinating all year round, whether it involves breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, colourful sails on the horizon, birds skipping along the ice in the winter, and at night, the reflection of millions of city lights.
Properties located on water typically command higher resale value, as well, and looking at Canada as a whole, Toronto one of the few cities that has residential development along its waterfront. Among the new residential choices you will find is Monde Condominiums by Great Gulf. Located at Queen’s Quay and Lower Sherbourne, this popular condo sits on one of the city’s last few waterfront properties. Residents will have beautiful views over green space, the water and sculptures of Sherbourne Common, the signature park next door. With architecture by the internationally acclaimed Moshe Safdie, Monde will be a stunning addition to our waterscape and skyscape. Visit mondecondominiums.com or baker‑re.com. And hurry, before owning a brand new condominium on Toronto’s Lake Ontario shoreline is a thing of the past!
