You can't miss the two majestic towers joined by the Skybridge that make up Concord Adex's Parade residences. CityPlace is one of the largest residential developments ever constructed in Toronto and the Parade towers are the icon of this burgeoning neighbourhood. Parade II, "the round one" was built in 2011 and is made up of podium, mid-rise and tower suites. Fashionable and functional, clean and contemporary, units range from studios to two story, 3 bedroom plus townhomes, so there are options for everyone from singles to growing families. Directly fronting the 8-acre Canoe Landing Park, green space, views and deluxe amenities are some of the big draws for this Toronto condo. Another appeal is price; the Parade condos are among the most affordable options among downtown condos for sale.

Parade II is at the west end of CityPlace in between Toronto's Harbourfront & Financial Districts. This puts you minutes from Ripley's Aquarium, Roy Thompson Hall, the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, Air Canada and Rogers Centres, and the CN Tower.
You are part of a master-planned community in CityPlace, and, while the living is relatively high-density, it's growing into a true neighbourhood. There's a Tim Horton's about a minute from your front door and you can enjoy your coffee as you walk to pick up groceries at Sobey's or Bulkco. If you'd rather dine out, Hunter's Landing, Città and The Fox and Fiddle are all close by. The Fort York Library is just a two-minute walk up the street and you can read your book in one of the nearby parks. Canoe Landing is immediately in front of the building and provides a welcome and expansive green contrast to the surrounding condos. The park incorporates artwork and the Terry Fox Miracle Mile run. Roundhouse Park is less than a 15-minute walk away and houses two railway museums, a collection of trains and The Steam Whistle Brewing Company, in case you get thirsty after your walk.
For residents of Parade II without a car, it's steps to the TTC streetcar stop at Bathurst and Fort York Rd., or a quick 5-minute walk to the stop at Spadina and Bremner. Drivers can access the Gardiner Expressway via the Spadina onramp just 250m from home. And if your travels will take you further afield, the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport is about a 5-minute drive from home.
What Residents Are Saying
...those of us who live here have noticed a great increase in community feel. Farmers markets, concerts, community sports teams, etc have all come in the last couple of years. Urbantoronto.ca Anyone who's visited CityPlace this summer will have found it a more bustling place. The pedestrian bridge has brought the canoe park a lot more patrons. The Fox & Fiddle's patio is always full before/after Jays games. I live in CityPlace and I love it. Urbantoronto.ca
