As a realtor specializing in the original City of Toronto, I'm constantly surprised by the limited number of opportunities to live in an elevated urban space that's married with a truly life-enhancing location; too few Torontonians ever experience how this unique fusion can provide liberation from the dispiriting density and intensity of the 'concrete jungle'. One of the rare destinations in Toronto that offers a live/work balance by design and landscape... is Harbourfront's Queens Quay.
Situated just south of the Financial, Fashion and Entertainment Districts, I think living lakeside is the perfect antidote to the high octane vibe that characterizes urban living. Having ribbons of green space, a promenade, and the expansiveness of Lake Ontario on your doorstep invites instant decompression. For most city dwellers, connecting with nature requires expending some effort to find it, but when you live on Queens Quay it's an integral part of your everyday environment. Stroll to Sugar Beach and dip your toes in the sand; ride your bike to Cherry Beach on the bike path; feel the wind in your hair on the ferry crossing to Toronto Island, and make sailing Lake Ontario the go-to extension of your health and well-being!
Located in 500 Queens Quay West, this picturesque waterfront condominium marries all the benefits of its park-like setting with phenomenal cultural amenities, numerous greengrocers & shops, light rapid transit, and, for jet-setters, the extremely convenient island airport! Plus, the energy, dynamism, and diversity of downtown Toronto, is mere minutes away. Having 2 beds & 2 baths, this sun-drenched suite features an intelligent space plan, excellent proportion and scale, and both south and north exposures. Comprising 1293 square feet of interior living space, plus an additional 183 square feet of outdoor living space (the unit is one of only six in the complex with a covered south facing balcony and an open city vista terrace), this contemporary suite has been thoughtfully renovated with quality fixtures and fittings!

If you're considering a Toronto property purchase - and your priorities include luxury, location, versatility, and convenience - all blended into a contemporary urban residence - then this lakeside retreat is worth your consideration.
