15. 18 Yorkville

18 Yorkville

This building is literally one of the most under rated condos in Toronto. It’s number #15 in the list of the best condos in Toronto. If I want to simply summarize this building’s value I can say, the best value per square foot in Toronto’s top neighbourhood.

18 Yorkville, as the name says, is located in Toronto’s world known Yorkville neighbourhood. It’s located steps away from all that bougie lifestyle and luxury brand stores and world famous restaurants. Literally down the street from the Luxurious Four Seasons residences and hotel. All those amenities around you, while you pay a relatively great price per square foot here.

To simplify it, if you wanna get into Yorkville and own a piece of this prime real estate, you’re looking at an average 30% more per square foot than what you can buy in the 18 Yorkville! I think after writing this article more people will find this building valuable and the prices might not stay like this in the next few years.

Where everybody goes for the hype, I go for the value, the best value in the best neighbourhood! And in Yorkville, this is the best value!

18 Yorkville was built in 2006 by Great Gulf, one of Toronto’s top builders. It’s a 36 storey building with over 300 condo suites. In this building, from time to time, you can find a one bedroom in the mid $600Ks. Suite sizes in this building are starting from 470 sqft and up to over 3,000 sq ft penthouses.

14 . Seventy5 Portland

Seventy5 Portland

As the name says, this condo is located at 75 Portland St, in Toronto’s King West neighbourhood, at the heart of the Fashion District. Seventy5 Portland became very popular by it’s design and large and well planned layouts. Young downtown dwellers who have a passion for soft lofts and that kind of lifestyle, love this building. From the lobby to the units, you can feel that this building offers you a unique lift style, by positioning you in one of the nicest modern soft lofts in Toronto.

Not only the interior design, but the building itself, which is a boutique low rise condominium, gives you a homey feeling, even though you’re literally in one of the busiest pockets in downtown Toronto. Seventy5 is surrounded by party places, bars, clubs, and some of the world famous restaurants. King West’s Fashion district is literally the spot for enjoying the nightlife in Toronto.

Location is not the only factor that made Seventy5 one of the top 15 best condos in Toronto. Interior layouts and the living experience is equally important. Unlike many newer condo buildings downtown, the units in this building offer wider living rooms and open concept kitchens.

Seventy5 has over 200 condo apartments. It was built in 2010 by Freed Developments. Seventy5 Portland condos for sale are ranging from mid $700Ks for smaller 1 bedrooms to a bit over $2M for a 2 Bedroom and 3 bathrooms Penthouse Suite.

13. Theatre Park

Theatre Park

Theatre park, at 224 King St W, has a very distinct and unique facade, overlooking Toronto’s Roy Thomson Hall. The theatre park is a slim building with glass curtain walls and diagonal exterior exposed braces. Other than Roy Thomson, next door to you there is the famous Royal Alexandra Theatre. Just so you know, Great Gulf hass a development proposal for that spot, in which there will be 2 condo towers built right there, where the Royal Alexandra is!

The three factors that put Theatre park in the list of one of the Toronto’s Top 15 Best Condos, are as follows:

Location, it’s located literally steps away from the Financial District, yet next to the entertainment and nightlife. It has both worlds. Unique Facade, we talked about it already.

Most of the units in Theatre Park get tons of light, which in downtown Core is a rare commodity, for several reasons. It’s right in front of it is the Roy Thomson Hall with an open view. South view units in Theatre park are selling with very high premiums because of that. Also the unique facade, a glass curtain wall, gives you floor to ceiling windows, thus bringing in more natural light and better views.

Theatre Park was built in 2015 by Lamb Developments, and it consists of 47 Stories, where most of the units have the ceiling height of 9 to 11 feet.

12. The Milan

The closest intersection is Bay St and Richmond St W, and it’s surrounded by office buildings, hotels, and restaurants.

The unique location of this condo made it very convenient for Finance professionals to call it home. It literally is steps away from many major Employers in Toronto, The big banks offices, Toronto Stock Exchange, Subway Station, and Eaton Centre. I’ve done lots of deals in Toronto’s condos and by far this is one of the best condos in Toronto to invest in my opinion.
