188 Spadina Ave, Toronto
About this condo
188 Spadina Avenue Condos is the tale of two buildings — one, a classic brick tower, the other, a swanky townhome complex.
First time home buyers be warned — these Toronto townhouses are not the units you’ve been looking for. In fact, any budget minded buyer would be wise to spare themselves the heartbreak and stick to condos found inside the tower.
Built in 1986, 188 Spadina Avenue Condos is a bit of a chameleon — when looking upon its class brick exterior and traditional frame, you wouldn’t even know that the townhomes exist. The tower offers spacious Toronto condos for sale, on par with older condo buildings. You get some nice extras to go with your condo — gym, pool, sauna, party room, shared rooftop deck, and security guard.
Those who own a townhome, have a house-like living experience — at a much higher price point. Units in the tower likely appeal to a wide range of buyers, while those in the townhome complex are geared towards established professionals and buyers who aren’t on a tight budget.
Buyers have a variety of units to choose from — 1 bedroom to 3 bedroom condos — and some choices when to comes to style as well. Units found in the tower have hardwood or parquet flooring, ensuite laundry, balconies, large bay windows, and open concept layouts. Many units feature fireplaces and updated kitchen, although it’s possible that some units will require upgrading.
Townhomes on the other hand, are all move in ready — and downright luxurious. Within these units you’ll find hardwood floors, fireplaces, large bedrooms, tall ceilings, gourmet kitchens, stainless steel appliances, private terraces, multi-level layouts, and over 1300 square feet of living space. Of course, these townhomes are not cheap, and you can expect prices to be in excess of 7 figures.
Whether you own a townhome or a condo, you have exciting options for dining, shopping, and entertainment just around the corner. As well, there’s excellent public transit in the area, making this an all in one urban location.
As a resident of 188 Spadina Avenue Condos you get the bonus of living in the thriving Queen West neighbourhood — as the site of many loft conversions and new developments, this neighbourhood has become a very popular landing spot for young professionals. Whether it’s food, entertainment, or shopping that you seek — you’ll find it here.
From your home at 188 Spadina Avenue you’re just a hop, skip, and a jump from boutique shopping on Queen. Home to vintage and modern fashion, furniture, technology, and a selection of specialized shops — if you can buy it in a store, you can buy it here. Seriously, Geologic is a store that sells rocks… fancy rocks, but still rocks.
Residents have an embarrassment of riches for caffeinated beverages — on Queen you have Little Nicky's Coffee, Cafe Crepe, Starbucks; on Spadina you’ve got Dark Horse Espresso Bar, Tea Shop 168, Kung Fu Tea Toronto, and Sugar Marmalade Toronto. For dining, there’s an endless array of international restaurants — most of which serve Asian cuisine — on Queen and Spadina, and many fast food chains as well.
If nightlife is what you crave, you have Horseshoe Tavern just steps away for a drink and a game of pool, there’s Rush Lane & Co. for cocktails, and B Boss Ktv and 8090Karaoke for Karaoke. And if you need a truly diverse nightlife, you can wander south to the Entertainment District for charming pubs like the Town Crier, bustling clubs such as Orchid Nightclub, and lively bars like The Office Pub.
With a glowing Walk Score of 99, residents can easily run their errands on foot; Kai Wei Supermarket is just up the street and Kensington Market is one street over, making groceries a breeze.
Public transit riders have streetcar service right outside their front door, and on Queen and Bathurst as well — and Osgood Station is within walking distance for subway lines.
Car owners have a driver friendly location, as a short drive south on Spadina will have you on the Gardiner Expressway in minutes.
