Toronto’s waterfront area is one of the most sought after living locations anywhere in the city. The condominiums in this area offer breathtaking views of both the city skyline and Lake Ontario. There’s nothing quite like a home in a central location where you can look out and take in the relaxing sights of the harbour and beyond including Toronto Island and the pleasant back and forth of water traffic. Here are some of the newest developments that give you the opportunity to make harbour living a reality.
WaterParkCity A condominium development on the lake should reflect the water, and WaterParkCity does just that. The fluid design of the building blends seamlessly with the stunning presence of Lake Ontario just beyond. Occupancy of this building began in 2005. The development is 38 storeys and includes all of the amenities you would expect in a luxury building, such as 24 hour concierge service and a breathtaking lobby. Members can enjoy the benefits of a world class wellness spa in Club Oasis and take advantage of the party room which includes kitchen facilities and a lounge area. Most impressive of all is the WaterParkCity rooftop gardens, a true reflection of paradise, where condo owners can enjoy the spa, refined atmosphere, and view.
Atlantis The Atlantis condo development is fairly unique to the harbourfront area. The designers of the building chose to complement the atmosphere of the harbour with a building that replicates the basic shape of a boat, with a seven storey base and 28 storey “stack”. Atlantis residents will also have access to WaterParkCity’s Club Oasis and board room areas.
Aquarius Aquarius is the third phase in the WaterParkCity design, a shorter development at only 12 storeys. Residents of the Aquarius building will enjoy access to Club Oasis and the rooftop gardens.
The Breeze The Breeze condominium complex is the fourth phase in the Waterview community in Etobicoke. The first tower of this stunning complex will rise 29 storeys and will be complemented by a smaller tower rising 16 storeys. Each condo in the two buildings will include expansive terraces with views of the lake, the city, and the grounds. Amenities will include concierge service, billiard rooms and a landscaped terrace. The Breeze Club spa will include a whirlpool, saunas, a complete fitness centre, and an indoor swimming pool, all with spectacular full-glass views of the lake.
With so many new and developing opportunities to live on the waterfront in Toronto, you’ll just need to decide whether to buy a sailing yacht or a power boat.
Deciding which is the right for your needs is no easy feat, but the condo hunting process can be fun!
