Library District condos can be found on Fort York Boulevard just east of Bathurst Street. While drawing its name from Toronto’s 100th Public Library, located next door, the residence is designed to embrace and enhance the modern, urban lifestyle.
Standing at 29-storeys of coloured glass, the building offers 364 Fort York condos for sale and for rent, most of which are notably compact in either one or two-bedroom styles. Featuring open-concept layouts, floor-to-ceiling windows, modern bathrooms and kitchens, and private balconies, these suites are ideal for working professionals with an active, urban lifestyle. The building amenities, known as the Author’s Club, are also designed to enhance the sense of active living with cardio workout rooms, party rooms, a large outdoor terrace, and guest suites.
Beyond the walls of the building, residents will walk out into the growing and historically enriched Fort York neighbourhood, a mix of lush outdoor green spaces and well-known cultural attractions such as the Harbourfront Centre, Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, and the Canadian National Exhibition or CNE.
Most Notable Features
Live-work vibe: One thing to note about Library District condos is the developer’s intention of a live-work atmosphere. What that means is that the units are a little bit more compact compared to other downtown Toronto condos and are designed for utility over luxury, giving working professionals a solid place to live, work and play all in one.
Library lobby: The front lobby of Library District is an inventive display of interior design, with a full wall dedicated to shelving hundreds of books. It’s a charming layout that speaks to the general vibe of the building, and if you like the idea of passing through a library every day then you will love a home at Library District.
Swimming pool: Library District features an array of amenities but most notably the building hosts a swimming pool. A fun place to stay active, keep in shape, meet your neighbours and make new friends.
With a live-work home at Library District, residents will experience the new and growing Fort York community situated between Bathurst Street and Strachan Avenue, next door to the Fort York National Historic Site. Sometimes called the ‘Garrison,’ it’s a fresh community coming up among green spaces like Garrison Common and Coronation Park, but with many condo towers and new townhouse developments you’ll feel right at home as a condo owner. And there is a blooming culture of retail shops and restaurants, not far from the excitement of Toronto’s Entertainment District, Liberty Village, and Queen Street West. A few local eateries to check out include Hunters Landing on Fort York Boulevard for a hearty Canadian menu in a mezzanine sports bar, Magic Oven on Jefferson Avenue for some gluten-free pizza, and Le Select Bistro on Wellington for classic French cuisine and a very long wine list.
For all local groceries and household needs you can find Sobeys at Fork York Boulevard and Spadina, Metro on Lynn Williams Street, and Harbour Green Farms on Queens Quay West.
Local green spaces are impossible to miss with Garrison Common to the north and Coronation Park to the south. Plus you can enjoy Toronto’s Martin Goodman promenade along Lake Ontario for bicycling and roller-blading, picnic benches for an afternoon in the sun, baseball diamonds, soccer-fields, and more.
The Fort York neighbourhood enjoys many smooth and easy travel options, with an 85 Walk Score for those who prefer to get around on foot. There are two nearby streetcar lines heading north along Bathurst and east to Union Station where you can connect to Toronto’s subway system. For car owners, the area is designed to accommodate with wide streets and easy access to the Gardiner Expressway East and West via Spadina Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard.
