The weather has finally changed and we’re loving the warmth and sunshine! We thought we’d do a summer fun piece today in anticipation of spending a lot more time outdoors. And who can resist condos with pools in Toronto for a refreshing dive and a luxury reprieve from a heat wave?
While a cool splash isn’t the driving force behind picking one condo for sale in Toronto over another, it certainly doesn’t hurt. And finding a condo with a stellar outdoor pool is a serious score. Here are our top picks for best outdoor condo pools in Toronto.
Top 5 Best Outdoor Condo Pools in Toronto
#1 The Thompson Hotel
Average PSF $1,004
2018 maintenance fee $0.73/sqft
It’s likely no surprise that our number one spot goes to a hotel-condo development. It’s hard for the average, joe-schmoe condo to compete with top-notch hotel amenities. Residents of the adjoined condos at The Thompson Residences get to share the Thompson Hotel’s amenities including the most gorgeous infinity pool in the city.
#2 The Verve
Average PSF $865
2018 maintenance fee $0.56/sqft
The Verve rooftop deck and pool is hands-down one of the best in the city and the social hub of the building. The pool is rivalled only by the building’s strikingly designed lobby. The unassuming exterior of this soft loft is very deceiving. The Verve lofts are a real gem and the pool is the crowning jewel.
#3 300 Front Street West
Average PSF $992
2018 maintenance fee $0.55/sqft
Tridel did not disappoint with the rooftop deck, private cabanas and lush swimming pool at 300 Front Street West. Their marketing tagline was “Luxuriate. You Deserve It.” Take one look at this pool and you’ll be quick to agree.
#4 Pure Spirit
Average PSF $1,002
2018 maintenance fee $0.58/sqft
The best rooftop deck and pool on the east-side, the Distillery District’s Pure Spirit condos are a popular choice with first and second-time buyers, thanks in part to the stellar poolside views out over the city, pictured above and in our lead image.
#5 South Beach Condos and Lofts
Average PSF $724
2018 maintenance fee $0.54/sqft
Okay, so we’re cheating a little bit and going further west to South Etobicoke on this one but the coveted South Beach Condos + Lofts pool deserves a shout-out.
And A Special Mention Goes To . . .
The Waterclub Condos
Average PSF $910
2018 maintenance fee $0.61/sqft
The Waterclub condo community – it’s actually a complex of three separate condo towers including Waterclub I, Waterclub II and Waterclub III – has a really unique dual-pool that’s half indoors, half out, so you can enjoy a dip any time of the year.
Bonus Round: The Most Anticipated Outdoor Pool . . .
Aqualina at Bayside
Current asking PSF $932
Current rental PSF $3.6/sqft
In an earlier version of this blog post we showcased Aqualina at Bayside while it was still in its pre-construction stages, but now the condo is registered and ready for summer fun. Located in Toronto’s waterfront neighbourhood, there are condos for sale and for rent at Aqualina at Bayside. Lake views from a rooftop infinity pool = vacation in your own backyard (or rather, roof). ‘Nuff said.
