Located in the Entertainment District – just south of King Street West and east of Spadina Avenue – 250 Wellington Street West is a quick streetcar ride to the financial core or University of Toronto, a short stroll to hip King West and Queen West, and moments to the Billy Bishop Island Airport for weekend get-aways. In proximity to the Theatre District, Scotiabank Cinema, Harbourfront, and the Rogers Centre, and around the corner from some of the City’s finest restaurants, this truly is living in the centre of it all.

It’s called the Entertainment District with good reason; there’s vast selection of eateries, leisure activities, and hip clubs to be explored right outside your front door! For comfort food and a good brew, just cross the street to Wayne Gretsky’s, Wahlburgers, Pizza Rustica, Bar Hop, or Mascot Brewery. If you’re craving something more exotic, try Agra for great Indian food, or Thai Princess around the corner! Do you deserve a night out? Start it off with a visit to the LCBO at King and Spadina, then dance your way over to nearby Bloke, trendy Maison Mercer, or unique Spin Toronto – the options are endless! Even date night is a breeze when just a short stroll along King West will find you amongst some of Toronto’s best entertainment purveyors: TIFF Bell Lightbox, Second City, The Princess of Whales Theatre, and Roy Thompson Hall! While virtually everything you need is mere seconds away on foot (the building boasts a WalkScore of 99), the King Streetcar and the Spadina LRT can take you anywhere you need to go beyond your ‘hood, and there’s a Budget car rental directly across the street for those weekend excursions to IKEA!

Sitting on Wellington Street between Blue Jays Way and John Street, Icon II was completed by developer Tridel in 2003, and is part of a joint residence project with Icon I at 270 Wellington. A little bit taller than it’s neighbour, Icon II stands at 18-storeys with a soft concrete, brick and glass exterior, covered balconies, and a welcoming fountain in the lobby. The building hosts over 300 suites, with bright and spacious spaces ranging from one-bedroom to two-bedrooms plus den, as well as two-level suites on the 16th floor. It is the perfect place to relax, workout, and socialize with the unique selection of services and amenities offered to residents, including a rooftop park with sun deck and barbecue terrace, a fully-equipped fitness club with aerobics room and athletics lounge, a workout pool, change rooms and saunas, a bike room, a 24-hour concierge, meeting rooms, a party room and a Cyber Lounge! The Icon II is also pet-friendly, and is conveniently close to Clarence Square Dog Park on Spadina and the David Pecaut Square on Wellington.

Suite 343 is a 1 bedroom plus den north-facing unit, offering nearly 600 square feet of living space, plus a private balcony that’s perfect for sipping your morning coffee! Perched on the third floor, this intelligently-designed suite marries clean lines and a contemporary aesthetic with a warm, homey vibe. The classic kitchen features stylish integrated appliances, stone countertops, and a combination island/breakfast bar. The light wood floors elongate and brighten the open concept living/dining area, which features a walk-out to the north-facing outdoor space. The carpeted master bedroom boasts a bright wall of windows, and, together with the updated 4-piece semi-ensuite, represents a quiet sanctuary away from the bustle of downtown. We love how well-proportioned this home sweet home is and, take note, all of the furnishings are negotiable inclusions!

For the buyer who’s seeking a steps-to-the-action condominium in the heart of the city – in an area which is still growing into a world class destination – this dynamite pad could be for you!
