Located on Grand Magazine Street just off Fleet Street, West Harbour City II stands at 28-storeys with an attached 11-storey podium. It is the second phase of West Harbour City and shares the same terraced façade of beige concrete and dark glass as its predecessor next door on Fleet Street.
The residence hosts over 300 Fort York condos for sale and for rent, with suite sizes and layouts ranging from bachelor style apartments to expansive penthouses, plus select townhouse units. Prospective buyers can expect to find mostly open-concept living areas with nook kitchens, pre-engineered hardwood flooring, nine-foot ceilings, stainless steel appliances, and private balconies or terraces with beautiful views of Lake Ontario and Toronto’s skyline. Residents of West Harbour City II will also enjoy a high-end array of amenities unlike most other downtown Toronto condos.
Looking past the building, homeowners will be immersed in 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
A fresh vibe: While the property management of West Harbour City II boasts a building-wide sense of community among friends and neighbours, the overall neighbourhood is still young and therefore a bit lacking. Making up for the limited number of shops and boutiques, the area enjoys a fresh, natural vibe with nice parks and paths, through trees and along the waterfront.
Condo of the Year Award: In 2014 West Harbour City II was the winner of the Canadian Condominium Institutes’ Condo of the Year Award. The prize recognizes condo buildings that have shown outstanding achievements in areas of community spirit, unique condo features, financial success, and building innovation. With a home at West Harbour City II, you’re an award-winner.
TTC next door: Just steps from Fleet Street, West Harbour City II enjoys a prime location in the Fort York area right beside the TTC streetcar routes that connect you north along Bathurst Street and east to Union Station. A fast and secure way to travel that you will certainly love during the winter.
With an award-winning home at 21 Grand Magazine Street, residents will enjoy 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. Some interesting local eateries to check out include Citta on Fort York Boulevard for Southern Italian delights in a rustic setting, Bar Wellington on Wellington Street, and for a nice warm latte or cappuccino stop by Thor Espresso Bar at Bathurst and Niagara.
For local groceries and other household odds and ends, you can find Sobeys at Fork York Boulevard and Spadina, Metro on Lynn Williams Street, and Harbour Green Farms on Queens Quay West.
Your nearby green spaces include 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.
What Residents Are Saying
“The units are larger than average in Toronto and the layouts really maximize your space. The building offers a lot of amenities and is conveniently located beside the Bathurst and Harbourfront streetcar.”
