Located on Simcoe Street at the corner of Richmond Street, Qwest is a trendy 13-storey condo building of pre-cast concrete, brick and tinted glass that shares the contemporary style and flare of nearby Queen Street West.
The building offers 210 Toronto condos for sale and for rent, ranging in size from one to two-bedrooms with multiple baths, plus select penthouse units. The suites feature bright and spacious open-concept layouts with pre-engineered hardwood flooring, enclave kitchens with modern appliances and granite countertops, plus a mix of Juliette and open-air balconies. The amenities at Qwest are easily comparable to newer Toronto condos, offering residents a gym, whirlpool, lounge, party rooms and 24-hour concierge.
And beyond the walls of the building, homeowners at Qwest will enjoy living just steps from the excitement of Queen Street West for shopping and diining, and within walking distance to Toronto’s Entertainment District, Financial District, and the Eaton Centre.
