A Contemporary Waterfront Retreat At Harbourfront’s 5QQ Condominiumoffered at $699,900
Urban living is not just about how little time it takes to get home from work, the proximity to transit, or how close you are to your favourite restaurant. It’s about the synergistic connection you have to places and people that ultimately make your life better. Toronto is not only one of the most livable and competitive cities in the world but also a major waterfront destination, offering us an easy breezy lakeside urban life.
Toronto’s Harbourfront is a popular leisure centre and a fantastic neighbourhood. If you enjoy the convenience of downtown but seek the calming respite of the waterfront, then you just might want to start packing for this dreamy ideal home!
Welcome to 500 Queens Quay West, Suite 516E.
Imagine spending the day biking the Martin Goodman Waterfront Trail, renting a boat, catching a live classical music performance in the Music Garden, or lounging in a comfy Muskoka chair enjoying your favourite read-of-the-moment with soft sand between your toes at HTO Park or Sugar Beach. Doesn’t it feel like you’re on vacation? Harbourfront Centre, located on Queens Quay between York and Rees Street, is an arts-and-culture destination that stages free festivals and events throughout the year. Additionally, it’s a great place to check out if you’re thinking of starting a hobby or looking to learn something new; a variety of classes are offered year round – everything from pottery and glass blowing to silk screening or sailing. Meeting up with friends? Amsterdam Brewhouse, with their impressive selection of local brews, will be your go-to spot for tasty pub fare. For special occasions, or maybe an intimate dinner for two, Harbour Sixty Steakhouse is just a short stroll away.
Just east is the Terminal Building at the foot of York Street, featuring three floors of shops, galleries, restaurants and a Sobeys grocer. A short stroll east, at the foot of Jarvis, you’ll find the LCBO, a huge Loblaws, and even the trendy Joe Fresh. Living along the waterfront has added conveniences, such as proximity to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport for easy jet-setting, the Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre, and Exhibition Place. It’s all easily accessible! Getting around is also a breeze, with a street car stop right outside your door, Union station a fifteen minute walk away, and the nearby Gardiner Expressway is moments away for those who commute by car.
Completed in 2000, 500 Queens Quay was developed by Cenpac Developments Inc. as part of a community of condos. This 11-storey, 187 unit, brick-and-glass building sits in the heart of Toronto’s vibrant waterfront neighbourhood between Spadina Avenue and Bathurst Street. Known for its proximity to the lake, the building was designed so that many of the suites take advantage of spectacular Lake Ontario views and Toronto’s harbourfront.
Suite 516E is a rarely offered two-bedroom, two-bathroom plus den unit fully renovated with luxury finishes. This elegant suite is bursting with fresh style. The engineered hardwood floors, a split two-bedroom floor plan, and a spectacular view of the waterfront are just a few of the noteworthy features of this urban retreat. With over $65,000 spent in upgrades, this 1339 square feet of well-planned contemporary space is ideal for anyone who does not want to sacrifice space for location. Upon entering the suite, you are drawn to a large modern kitchen with gleaming white cabinetry, striking Ceasarstone counters and stainless steel appliances. If you’re a foodie or have Master Chef aspirations, this is the prefect place to practice your culinary skills. Separated by a large peninsula offering additional seating at the breakfast bar, the kitchen overlooks the expansive dining and entertainment area. This space is drenched in natural light that flows through the large south facing window.
The master retreat immediately extends an invitation for respite and repose. This calming space also offers a luxe spa-like ensuite bath with glass shower stall and a soaker tub, a walk-in closet that will make any fashionista swoon, and an adjoining den with sleek built-ins offering additional sense of privacy and separation from the living area. A good-sized second bedroom is just across the hall to the second washroom, perfect for visiting friends and family.
If that’s not enough, this pet-friendly unique urban space with a 24-hour concierge also includes parking and locker. Want more? If you like what you see, all the furnishings are available for sale. Now that’s what we call turn-key! So if you’re fond of the outdoors, crave the tranquility of the waterfront, and seek a location that’s walkable to all things cool, this slice of Toronto real estate is a ‘must see”!
