Living Downtown Chic at 300 Front Street West

If you want to live in downtown Toronto, you want to live at 300 Front Street West. Seriously. The location, building, suites and amenities are beyond compare. Have you heard about the rooftop pool? Better question: have you seen the pool?! It’s amazing. We wanted to go for a dip but resisted the urge – swimming on the job isn’t the most professional thing to do.

300 Front Street West is finished with impeccable style and spectacular attention to detail. Smooth ceilings, up to ten feet high, take you to new heights of opulence and sophistication. Floor to ceiling windows provide stunning views of the surrounding Entertainment District and all the sights and scenes of Toronto.

The building is situated at one of the coolest intersections in downtown Toronto: Front and John. Some of Toronto’s best attractions are (almost literally) within arms length: you can catch a Blue Jays game at The Rogers Centre, walk on the edge at the CN Tower, cheer on the Leafs, Raptors or watch a concert at the Air Canada Centre. Breathtaking views while living in utmost style and absolute comfort are yours at 300 Front.

But even better than the attractions surrounding 300 Front, your home will be the perfect spot for your professional and social life: it is just a short walk to your office during the week and another short stroll to all of the hottest bars and clubs on the weekend.

300 Front also features a high-end collection of luxury suites beginning on the 44th floor and soaring up to the 49th floor called Atmosphere. This collection of penthouse and signature suites on the top floors is “move-in ready” and many are already sold out. They include a three-bedroom penthouse or two-bedroom plus study plus a twenty-foot balcony, master bedroom with a massive walk-in closet and the finest features and finishes – from state-of-the-art appliances to granite back splash.


300 Front’s Atmosphere collection is perfectly upscale yet hardly stuffy. The location, views, finishes and amenities are the very best the city has to offer. From the personally encoded suite intrusion alarm system (connected to the concierge station), to the French door paneled refrigerator, to the extra large porcelain tiled bathtub – the collection is beyond compare. We can’t wait for you to move in so you can experience it all for yourself!

Taking over the Streets in Kensington

 

 

 

If you’re one of those people who enjoys a casual Sunday, strolling through the neighbourhood, mixing errands with a little shopping and relaxing over a coffee, you don’t have to go far.  In fact, you can find it right at home, just a few blocks from SQ at Alexandra Park.

On the last Sunday of the warm weather months, Kensington Market is totally car-free. That’s right: the streets are closed off to all wheels turning Kensington into a “cultural playground” with a street festival organized by the locals.

Kensington Market is located on several streets south of College St., west of Spadina Ave., north of Dundas St. and east of Bellevue Ave., which is just a short walk from SQ at Alexandra Park.  The unique, vibrant and multicultural character of this neighbourhood is just steps from SQ – an exciting Tridel project transforming the Alexandra Park area into an exceptional, renewed and vibrant community bursting with parks, green spaces, modern design and inspired architecture… much like Kensington Market!

Pedestrian Sundays at Kensington Market is an event that brings the community together and celebrates a day of cleaner air – featuring a good time by all! The day celebrates community, culture and ecology as the area fills up with artists, musicians, performers, and market vendors selling their wares. The monthly event truly feels like a community-run fair, with strangers becoming friends, eating cultural treats and letting children play (safely) in the streets.

The people of Kensington make Pedestrian Sundays possible: all of the signs are homemade, the music is from the garage-band next door and the food is local. The human touch sets these details apart from other street festivals bringing the community closer and more connected through culture. There are classes such as yoga, cooking and art; as well as food vendors, live music and other entertainment.

The community believes in making a statement about climate change while creating the experience of what a liveable city and a sustainable future could be simply by giving walkers priority over cars. It’s a local action that joins a global ecological movement. And what’s better than spending an afternoon of fun in the outdoors with family, friends and neighbours?

The next Pedestrian Sunday takes place on July 27th from 12pm until 7pm – a perfect time to explore this neighbourhood and visit the SQ at Alexandra Park sales centre – located at 519 Queen Street West and open from 12pm to 6pm on Sundays.

See you on the street!

Pedestrian Sundays take place in Kensington Market between 12pm until 7pm on the following upcoming Sundays: July 27, August 31, September 28 and October 26.
