St. Lawrence Market: Toronto’s Coveted Urban Village
I absolutely adore the vintage buildings and charming streetscapes of the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood, which are dotted with a colourful mix of retailers and cafes. The area’s popularity is compounded by its oh-so-rare village-like ambience and its ‘lickety-split’ accessibility to other parts of the city. I find it amazing that you can have a comfortable, engaging walking life right next to the ‘Bright Lights, Big City’ vibe of the Financial District, while being only steps from Union Station and the subway line, just north of Harbourfront on Lake Ontario, and just east of the Distillery District and Corktown – two of the city’s most dynamic emerging locations!
Way back in the late 1800s, the Town of York, which the St. Lawrence Market was part of, was home to people that worked in the area, traded, sold, socialized, attended church and, on occasion, formed secret alliances, planned rebellions and incited spontaneous uprisings. Fast-forward to the 21st century, and you have a versatile neighbourhood where old and new coexist. Torontonians and tourists alike are drawn to the character and patina of the century-old three and four-storey brick buildings that make up Toronto’s famed St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood. The area has the benefit of not being over-developed with high-density towers that loom ominously over the streetscape, rendering dark shadows and wind tunnels. In fact, we’re always struck by the abundant natural light and expanses of sky and sun that kiss this thoughtfully-scaled neighbourhood. It’s one of the intangible reasons that make this location so magnetic.
Another reason is all of the inspiring, interesting and delicious places to explore, including the diverse and dynamic St. Lawrence Market, with its purveyors of fresh produce and speciality foods! We also love all the cafes and restaurants that dot the area including Fusaro’s East and Cafe 260 on nearby Richmond Street, the George Street Diner, and the BeerBistro located on King Street East. Line up for brunch at waffle-specialists, Le Petit Dejeuner, or settle in for an after-work cocktail and nosh at the Carbon Bar.
Do you love art and design? You’re smack dab in the centre of oodles of design retailers and art galleries! Take a walk through the Sunday Antique Market to find some keepsakes and objets-d’arts, browse some modern furniture pieces at EQ3, or spend an afternoon wandering spaces like Gallery260 or The Market Gallery.
There’s something revitalizing about being able to visit a park amidst the concrete and glass of downtown. This address is in proximity to many dynamic green spaces, including St. James Park, Market Lane Park, Berczy Park, and David Crombie Park – all within a 5-minute walk! Whether your ideal style of communing with nature is quiet reflection, outdoor recreation, or a picnic with friends, you’ll find the many green spaces in this community extremely supportive! Even Lake Ontario is a stroll away, while a 6-minute bike or 12-minute walk will take you to Toronto’s beloved Sugar Beach or Sherbourne Common!
If you need to get across the city, all your transportation needs are covered with the 24hour 504 King Streetcar one block north, connecting you directly to the Yonge/University subway lines and the GO and Via Rail trains at Toronto’s transit hub – Union Station. After all, the building boasts a Walk Score of 100 and a Transit Score of 100 – perfection! Need to rent a car for heavy errands? No problem. Grab a ZipCar right in the building!
This suite is surrounded by creativity and culture! You can immerse yourself in the culture of a vibrant pedestrian village one moment, and the next, escape for a little rejuvenation while perched above it all in your own urban oasis!
A Lot Of Love For Sixty Colborne
Tucked away between Church and Yonge Streets, just south of King Street, this stylish condominium was completed in 2018 by Freed Developments. It’s a beautiful design-focused build by architect Peter Clewes featuring stunning interiors imagined by Johnson Chou Inc. Rising out of a brightly accented podium, the artful tower is 25 storeys tall and truly stands out amongst its neighbours as an achievement in sculptural architecture. Best of all, it’s LEED-certified, meaning residents enjoy safety and security in a structure that is designed to be extremely environmentally conscious! How perfect is that?
The building hosts just over 250 suites, with bright and efficient space plans that range in size from 440 square feet to almost 2300 square feet! It is the perfect place to relax, work out, and socialize with the unique selection of services and amenities offered to residents. Take advantage of a host of elegant amenities that include a luxe raised glass rooftop pool, an outdoor lounge area, a fully-outfitted exercise facility, guest suites, and a 24-hour concierge! The ground floor is home to several shops and services, including BMO (if you need an ATM fast!) and Pi Co (for a quick slice!). Sixty Colborne is also pet-friendly (dogs & cats are a-ok!) and is conveniently close to the magical Berczy Park Dog Fountain and David Crombie Park with its doggie play area!
Suite 413 boasts 541 square feet per builder’s plan of efficient sun-drenched living space that’s perfect for either young professionals seeking their first purchase on the property ladder or downsizing zoomers seeking a centrally-located pied-a-terre! Perched near the southeast corner of the fourth floor, this intelligently-designed 1bed 1bath contemporary cube of domestic bliss marries the clean modern lines of Scandi-style engineered wood floors, integrated appliances and nine-foot ceilings! I love how well-proportioned this home sweet home is, with ample room for contemporary furnishings, an abundance of wall space for your art collection, and southerly city views framed by expansive floor-to-ceiling windows!
From the moment you step into the suite, the spacious foyer with a large double closet, hidden laundry service and 4-piece washroom offers a welcoming reception area that breezes into an open airy entertainment space flooded in natural light! A series of articulated spaces with superb flow, the open plan kitchen diner features streamlined dark cabinetry, luxe stone counters, a contemporary glass tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances! Love to gather around an island with your friends perched on bar stools enjoying a charcuterie board with cocktails, or do you prefer feasting at a long dining table laden with your own more complex culinary creations (sourced from the local purveyors at the St. Lawrence Market just steps away, perhaps)? This zone is designed to accommodate the way you prefer to congregate and share great food with great company. After all, we’re all recognizing the importance and value of surrounding ourselves with friends and family, right?
The culinary zone transitions cleanly into the open plan lounge, which is all about relaxing in comfort and style. Well-designed in scale and proportion, it offers a choice when configuring furniture to best accommodate your needs. Love to splay out on an oversized sectional to Netflix and chill, or do you prefer mixing a Stylegarage sofa with vintage mid-century chairs from Guff? This is a space where you can make it work!
Everyone needs a serene space they can call their own when the ravages of everyday living feel like they’re taking their toll. Off the entertainment space – behind a modern sliding door – you’ll discover the sleep sanctuary. This perfectly-appointed private oasis is softly lit by a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and is equipped with a double closet to accommodate your wardrobe! The 4-piece semi-ensuite bath blends clean lines with contemporary comforts, boasting a floating vanity, round vessel sink, combination tub and shower, and dimmable recessed lighting. You couldn’t ask for a better place to lather away the day or primp and polish yourself before you grab a pint with friends or head out for a night of dancing!
Yup, there’s lots to love living at Sixty Colborne. So if you’ve been seeking a steps-to-everything residence in a well-managed, well-maintained, and well-presented downtown condominium, this beautifully-appointed condo could be the perfect fit! The monthly maintenance fees are reasonable at $450.29, covering building insurance and common elements.
For the buyer who’s seeking a steps-to-the-action condominium in the heart of the city – in an area that is considered a world-class destination – this dynamite pad could be for you!
