Great Places Nearby: Leslieville

Leslieville is a hidden gem in Toronto. The area is quaint, quiet, and the epitome of a hip east end neighbourhood. It’s now known as being the coolest place to hang out in the city thanks to the amazing lineup of spots to live, eat, drink, and shop. It’s part of the larger South Riverdale neighbourhood in Toronto, but it’s bound by the Canadian National Railway line to the north and the DVP to the west. Continue reading

Our Neighbourhood By The Numbers

SLM Header

You all know how much we love to talk about our neighbourhood. We could talk about the overall vibe, great shopping, restaurants, and events all day long but sometimes it’s a good idea to just let the facts speak for themselves.

For instance, did you know the walk score in the St. Lawrence neighbourhood is 99? Or how about the fact that it only takes 13 minutes to walk to the city’s most loved urban beach?

There are a lot of important things that go into making our neighbourhood a great place to live, so we pulled together a few numbers that detail just why 158 Front is in the best neighbourhood in Toronto. So, here you have it – our neighbourhood by the numbers. Continue reading

Bike Lanes Around The St. Lawrence Market

Not only is St. Lawrence Market the first neighbourhood in Toronto, it’s also one of the most accessible. 158 Front just steps away from Union Station, our city’s transportation hub, and is both pedestrian and bike-friendly with Market Street right around the corner. Our area has made the space to accommodate all forms of transportation, and that’s one of the reasons we love it so much. Continue reading

We’re beyond excited to have Peter Clewes and his team at architectsAlliance working on our project.

Spending the Summer at Sugar Beach

How sweet is it to have such a great beach so close to home? Sugar Beach is by far the most popular urban beach in the city, if not for its signature pink umbrellas then for its close proximity to downtown and most importantly, our neighbourhood.

The beach officially opened in 2010 after landscape architect (and friend of Cityzen) Claude Cormier’s design was complete. At the foot of Lower Jarvis Street you’ll find 36 cotton candy-coloured umbrellas and 150 white Muskoka chairs on the sand, a splash pad, the iconic striped rocks, and a tree-lined promenade. If you haven’t made the trip yet, be sure to head there before summer’s over!

Here’s a little Instagram glimpse at what you’ve been missing out on: Continue reading

Introducing… 158 Front

We’re extremely excited to announce that we will soon be popping up in one of the city’s most loved neighbourhoods, St. Lawrence. There was no question that our developer, Cityzen, would target this amazing area for their next condo project in Toronto. The St. Lawrence neighbourhood is located in the heart of downtown Toronto which puts residents in close proximity work, restaurants, all kinds of shopping, our beautiful waterfront, and of course the iconic St. Lawrence Market. Our project will also be a 10 minute walk to Union Station and the Union Pearson Express, making it easy to get around the city or to the airport. Continue reading
