105 The Queensway , Toronto
About this condo
A point of clarification: residents living in the NXT 2 Condos live inside, and not next to, their condos. And now that that’s settled, we can get into some of the benefits of living at 105 The Queensway.
The most obvious selling point for these Toronto condos is that there is so much to do, one simply never has to leave. In fact, a life lived at 105 The Queensway is comparable to living on a golf course, only without the golf.
Beyond the typical (yet still generous) amenities, such as a gym, indoor and outdoor pools, party room and lounge, the building also boasts an outdoor tennis court, a movie theatre, and a games room with pool and ping pong.
Residents also have access to a 24-hour concierge; those questioning the value of this service might find this article helpful. Friends and family can make use of the building’s visitor parking and guest suites as well.
Another benefit is that the building is close enough to The Queensway to make its proximity alluring, yet still positioned on a charming, laid-back street. Plus, stunning vistas are to be had by all, thanks to its positioning outside of the downtown core: not too many other high rises are around to block the views.
Built in 2013 by Cresford Developments, the building is tall, glass, and glossy. While this style might look redundant somewhere in the Financial District or the downtown core, this contemporary aesthetic is like a breath of fresh air in the High Park and Swansea neighbourhood.
A grand total of 525 units can be found throughout the 34 storeys at 105 The Queensway. These range considerably in size, exposure, and style, allowing prospective buyers with many different lifestyles to entertain the idea of living here. Sizes range from around 500 to approximately 1,100 square feet, and units feature anything from one bedroom to two plus a den.
Homes at the 105 The Queensway are bright, warm, and modern, thanks to thoughtful finishes and details, such as hardwood or granite flooring. Open concept layouts and big, bright windows allow for natural sunlight to illuminate living spaces during the daytime. Ceilings reach to 9 feet, making even the coziest of units feel spacious at the same time. Expansive balconies can also be found throughout the building, extending areas for dining or relaxing into the great outdoors.
Although 105 The Queensway is on the other end of the city from The Beaches, there is, nevertheless, a great beach just down the street. Sunnyside is an ideal, west-end alternative to the busy parks and boardwalks near Woodbine and further east.
Crossing the Humber Bay Arch Bridge will land residents at Humber Bay Park, an expansive, lakeside green space perfect for picnicking, cycling, or taking a leisurely stroll. But it’s hard to discuss parks in the area without mentioning High Park. With an entrance only 500 metres away, residents can spend days getting lost in the 400 acres that also happens to feature a pool, tennis courts, countless sporting fields, fishing spots, a restaurant, and even a zoo.
Shops and businesses in the Swansea neighbourhood are ideal for those looking to run errands. Only officially incorporated into Toronto in 1967, the area was formerly known as the Village of Swansea. And if residents are looking for a claim to fame, the author of Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery, once called Swansea home.
For a night on the town, Bloor West Village and Roncesvalles aren’t far off either. Restaurants, bars, and theatres can be found in either of these areas, all of which will be less jam-packed than those in the centre of the downtown core.
While the immediate vicinity surrounding the NXT 2 Condos is not as dense as in the downtown core, residents can still get around easily without a car. Runnymede Station, on the Bloor-Danforth line, can be reached by bus in only 10 minutes. From here, residents can ride east or west, with connections to the Yonge-University-Spadina line at Spadina station. Alternatively, streetcars along Queen Street West will come in handy for those looking to head southeast.
Drivers are also in luck, thanks to the building’s close proximity to the Gardiner Expressway and the 427. This way, heading out of the city takes no time at all, especially with Pearson International Airport only a 17-minute drive away. The Gardiner can also be used to head east into the centre of the city, ideal for those commuting toward the Financial District for work.
