Downtown Toronto East Condos

There are a great deal of nostalgic locations throughout the historic east side of downtown Toronto. Many people love to live in this piece of Toronto’s history. From the St. Lawrence Market and condos on Front street, to Mill Street condos in the Distillery District, there are some lovely east Toronto condo options.

With the creation of the West Donlands Project and the re-vitalization of Regent Park, Toronto’s east side is undergoing gentrification at a furious pace. Riverdale and Riverside have been popular for years now, but with the boom of new lofts and condos, more and more people are discovering the area east of the Don Valley. Not quite the Beaches, East Toronto is in the perfect spot halfway between downtown and the eastern edge of the city.

The King East Condos - 318 King Street East The King East – 318 King Street East
Another cool new east end loft development from Brad Lamb and his development company. The King East is on the northwest corner of King & Parliament, one of the most historically significant intersections of the old City of Toronto. The design was supposedly inspired by the historical nature of the nearby Corktown and St. Lawrence Market districts, but it came off looking way too modern in my opinion. It is a smaller mid-rise building, only 12 stories high, containing 215 soft loft / concrete condo units was completed toward the end of 2011. Units do not come up all that often, and they do sell fast. I find them a bit skinny for my liking.

King Plus Condos - King Street East & Sherbourne Street King Plus Condos – King Street East & Sherbourne Street
I am still miffed they tore down the heritage building on the site, but such is life. Originally Bauhaus, this condo had to be relaunched as King Plus before gaining any traction. The development team claims to have designed a boutique residence which carefully preserves the historic facade of the turn of the century hotel that once stood on the site and contrasts strikingly with a sleek modern glass tower rising above it. There will be 132 condos in the 17-storey building, ranging in size from 560 to 1,405 square feet. South facing units on high floors should have a decent lake view.

MOD Developments is going to put up 60 storeys of condos across the street from the Eaton Centre. Hundreds of units will range in size from a tiny 378 square feet to a not very large max of 882 square feet. It certainly has the location, we shall see if people go for the smallish sizes.

Famous for having what is likely the worst website ever, plus some simple terrible marketing. Many hate it, saying it is out of place and has terrible architecture.

But with old Cabbagetown directly south, and the Parliament strip just to the east, there is a lot to like. The Art Deco style condo was completed in 2009 by Willowfield Homes.

—————————————————————————————————————————————

The area of St. Lawrence to the east of the financial district is the oldest area of Toronto. It features heritage buildings, theatres, music, dining and many pubs. It is a community of distinct downtown neighbourhoods including the site of the original Town of York, which was Toronto’s first neighbourhood, dating back to 1793. The area boasts one of the largest concentrations of 19th century buildings in Ontario. Of particular note are the St. Lawrence Hall, St. James’ Cathedral, St. Michael’s Cathedral, St. Paul’s Basilica, the Enoch Turner School House, the Bank of Upper Canada, Le Royal Meridien King Edward Hotel, and the Gooderham Building. Further to the east is Corktown and the Distillery District.

Corktown is an historic Old Town neighbourhood in downtown Toronto. It is just south of Regent Park and north of the Gardiner Expressway, between Berkeley Street to the west and the Don River to the east. The southern part of this area borders, but is not part of, the Distillery District and contains many vacated industrial buildings, some in use by production and movie studios. The West Don Lands, slated to be redeveloped over the next few years, will encompass the south-east corner of this area.

The Distillery District is an historic and entertainment precinct located east of downtown Toronto. It contains numerous cafes, restaurants and shops housed within heritage buildings of the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery. The 13-acre district comprises more than 40 heritage buildings and 10 streets, and is the largest collection of Victorian era industrial architecture in North America.

Cabbagetown is a neighbourhood located on the east side of downtown Toronto. It comprises “the largest continuous area of preserved Victorian housing in North America”, according to the Cabbagetown Preservation Association. Cabbagetown’s name derives from the Irish immigrants who moved to the neighbourhood beginning in the late 1840s, said to have been so poor that they grew cabbage in their front yards. Canadian writer Hugh Garner’s most famous novel, Cabbagetown, depicted life in the neighbourhood during the Great Depression.

While the neighbourhood surrounding Church and Wellesley is home to the community centre, parks, bars, restaurants, and stores catering to the LGBT community (particularly along Church Street), it is also a historic community with Victorian houses and apartments dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. Many LGBT people also live in the nearby residential neighbourhoods of The Annex, Cabbagetown, St. James Town, St. Lawrence, Riverdale and the Garden District, and in smaller numbers throughout the city and its suburbs.
