Most Notable Features
Liberty Village: The DNA buildings are located on the frontier of Toronto’s Liberty Village, a growing neighbourhood of creative entrepreneurial companies in media, film, web and design. It’s a lively and energetic area for young professionals, with outdoor sports fields, rock-climbing centers, and an expanding menu of restaurants, shops and bars.
Rooftop garden and BBQ: Residents at DNA get to enjoy a full list of building amenities from 24-hour concierge service to fitness facilities and saunas, but most notably there is a rooftop terrace and garden with community BBQ stations. A great place to relax and soak up the evening, meet your neighbours, and grill a delicious meal.
Many suite choices: As part of a three-phase Canderel Stoneridge residence development, the DNA buildings have over 1,000 suites available. So if the hip, trendy King West and Liberty Village vibe speaks to you, then DNA is bound to give you a condo to match.
Living at 1 Shaw Street you will always have something to do on any given night. The building is a nice walk or TTC hop from the Rogers Centre, where you can enjoy watching your favourite baseball player hit a home run, or you could explore the deep-sea thrills of Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. Not to mention boutique shopping and restaurants along King West’s Fashion and Entertainment Districts, Queen Street music and shows, outdoor activities along Toronto’s waterfront, and the up-and-coming boutique design hubs of Liberty Village. Some local hot spots to check out include Williams Landing on Lynn Williams Street for wine and steak on a spacious patio, Injapan on Atlantic Avenue, and Mildred’s Temple Kitchen on Hanna Avenue for weekend brunch.
For local grocery stores you can find Kings Market at the corner of Shaw and King, as well as Nutrition House and Metro 24-hours both inside Liberty Village off Lynn Williams Street.
For a slice of greener scenery, DNA is very close to the charmingly landscaped Massey Harris Park, as well as very close to both Trinity Bellwoods Park and the trails of Garrison Common.
The King West neighbourhood has a 90+ Walk Score, with nearby bicycle-friendly streets like Adelaide and Wellington.
