In a city where ubiquitous high-rises tower in a placeless landscape, finding well-designed space in a charming neighbourhood setting at an affordable pricepoint is certainly in limited supply. If you prefer a low-maintenance building in a neighbourhood where life’s necessities are within a short stroll – and where the sense of community and culture is something you can reach out and touch – this 2+den residence on Heintzman Place is a destination your family will love.

Located in the hip and happening Junction neighbourhood, this spacious family-friendly condominium is in proximity to all the amenities for a dynamic urban life. Just a short walk to Dundas Street West, it’s close to transit, shops, cafes and a variety of eateries and restaurants. If you’re someone who genuinely enjoys and embraces an urban existence, this is the neighbourhood where you’ll be afforded the opportunity to take part in an exciting neighbourhood rich in history and a strong sense of identity.

Welcome to 60 Heintzman Street, Suite 1426.

There is an untold merit to quality of life by living in a neighbourhood that mixes it up, offering inhabitants the opportunity to experience, and re-experience their surroundings simply as a matter of daily life. This exceptionally affordable offering is located in the hot and high-demand Junction neighbourhood where the friendly and hip community vibe attracts young families, urban professionals, artists and entrepreneurs.

The Junction was originally a manufacturing community with working class housing dating from the late 19th century, geographically located where notable companies such as Canadian Cycle & Motor Co., Campbell Milling Company and the Heintzman Piano Company were situated. Before The Junction underwent a rebirth it was neighbourhood chock full of history.

Renowned for its ban on the sale of alcohol for over 100 years (to deter industrial workers from drinking), The Junction re-introduced liquor licenses in 2001 when the first drink was poured east of Keele Street at Shoxs Sports Saloon. Eliminating prohibition had a positive effect on the community, as restaurants and bars opening along Dundas Street fueled more street life spawning more entrepreneurial retail. These days restaurants like Vesuvio are filled with local residents, serving up what many claim is the best pizza in the city, while eateries like Cool Hand of a Girl serve up wholesome, organic dishes perfect for the days when you just don’t have the time to make it yourself. Vying for Vietnemee? Try Ro House! On the weekend, stop in at the Sweet Potato to stock up on organic goods for the week, or visit the Farmer’s Market for locally grown produce in High Park. If you need an energy boost, cafes like Crema Coffee Co. and The Good Neighbour Espresso Bar serve up delicious caffeinated bevies. And if you love a good smoothie or freshly pressed juice, The Raw Chemist will be your go-to place.  The neighbourhood is also turning into something of a furniture and design destination with great shops like Mjolk, Smash and Post + Beam. You don’t have to go far for great design, whether your taste is contemporary, traditional or urban chic.

This west Toronto neighbourhood has managed to retain its small town charm, likely due to its distance from the downtown core. Although it may feel, for some, a bit off the beaten path, it has all the characteristics of a prime Toronto location thanks to easy access to the TTC. Take the five minute bus ride down Keele Street to Keele Station and Bloor West Village, or a ten minute bus ride across Dundas West to Roncesvalles Village. Either way, if you’re seeking a place that marries panache with cool, this brilliant space is ideal for the live/work entrepreneur.

Heintzman Place Condominiums, located at 60/61 Heintzman Street, was built on a historic site of the renowned producer of Canadian pianos. Completed in 2011 by award winning developer, Delterra’s Options for Homes, this is the first high-rise development in the neighbourhood and offers stunning city and lake views, close proximity to High Park and easy access to TTC and downtown. Although at first the building may seem somewhat monolithically conventional, many are pleasantly surprised by the quality of the finishes and attention to detail that are frequently lacking in other developments. The complex has appropriately scaled amenities (library, party room, play room for kids, BBQ terrace), abundant guest parking (59 spots), and several smart features (green roof, solar panels for heating water, etc.)

Perched on the fourteenth floor of Heintzman Place on the south east corner, Suite 1426 combines almost 832 square feet of sun-drenched indoor/outdoor essential living. This 2bed+den suite features a well-proportioned split plan, affording a bit of extra privacy to each bedrom. Directly on your left as you cross the threshhold is the bonus den space – which could alternatively be a formal dining room – features a double mirrored closet for all your outdoor fashion, footware, extra storage, and well as hidden ensuite laundry. The galley kitchen opens on your right, boasting upgraded granite counter tops, added shelving, and a white appliance suite. The peninsula breakfast bar is the ideal place for gathering friends, while the resident chef preparing culinary treats will appreciate the extra prep space.

The Entertainment Space, featuring upgraded maple laminate floors, radiates outwards from the kitchen, comprising both the dining and sitting areas. If it’s views you desire, look no further than the living room! The expansive window is the greatest piece of art we could imagine, framing a stunning view of the skyline, CN Tower, and Lake Ontario beyond. While both bedrooms offer slices of the same view, it’s the south-west facing balcony perch that offers the next best urban vista; it’s a great spot to relax and indulge in your morning coffee or cocktails with friends. The suite is rounded out by a contemporary 4-piece bathroom, an underground parking spot, and a locker for extra storage.

Heintzman Place Condominiums is a popular choice for the budget-conscious buyer looking to combine the easy, breezy, condo lifestyle with a rooted, cool neighbourhood vibe. With added perks like numerous building amenities, not to mention the low maintenance fees ($339.96/month + approximately $70/month for hydro), this family-friendly and pet-friendly residence is a fantastic offering not to be missed.
