Most Notable Features
A cottagey vibe: While Quay West is still very close to the excitement of King Street West and Liberty Village, it is much more secluded and quaint than many other downtown Toronto condos, with an almost cottagey vibe. Right beside the water, the cool fresh smell of the lake will greet you every day. So if you like that sort of thing, but still want a ‘downtown’ condo, then Quay West is an ideal place to check out.
Lakeside backyard: Residents at Quay West will enjoy a residential backyard that faces right onto the lake, with a Water Front Trail leading from your backyard around the lake into Coronation Park. It’s a beautiful and rare feature for downtown condo living and it should not be missed.
At-home car wash: Continuing with Quay West’s unique features, one of the building amenities is an at-home car wash. For homeowners who own a car and spend much of their time driving around the city, the ability to grab a quick soap and rinse might be your favourite part of Quay West condos.
With a calming home at 90 Stadium Road, 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 hot spots to check out include Raaw Japanese Cuisine on East Liberty Street for a large variety of sushi and traditional Japanese small plates, Against the Grain Urban Tavern on Dockside Drive for cold beer on a lakeside patio, and Spice Route on King Street for a nightclub styled Indo-Chinese fusion restaurant.
For all your local groceries stop by Sobeys at Fork York Boulevard and Spadina, Metro on Lynn Williams Street, and Harbour Green Farms on Queens Quay West.
Nearby green spaces are easy to find with Garrison Common to the north and Coronation Park right next door. 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.
