Homes in Downtown
New condominium projects have recently been built or are underway on Richmond, Queen and Wellington streets and in the King-Spadina area and for that matter, all across the downtown core. With a combination of some midrise loft-style buildings, high rises and the glitzier high-rise buildings which feature sleek designs with brick, glass and metal facades. By far the largest development in the area is taking place on the former railway lands next to the Rogers Centre. This new community is called CityPlace. Over the next several years 21 condominium buildings will stand on the area bounded by Rogers Centre to the east, Bathurst Street to the west, Front Street to the north, and Lake Shore Boulevard to the south. CityPlace — a technologically advanced fibreoptic community consists of approximately 7,000 condominium units that have brought around 12,000 new residents to this neighbourhood.
