    About 297 College StThe College Condo at Spadina

    Tribute Communities’ mixed-used development at 297 College Street attracts many prospective buyers with its state-of-the-art luxury homes — luxury being a rarity in the Kensington Market neighbourhood. Aptly named the College Condo at Spadina, this building boast a distinctively contemporary character, set in a downtown neighbourhood filled with plenty of history.

    Completed in 2016, 297 College stands at 15 storeys tall. The illustrative design by Core Architect projects a sense of joy that evokes the eclectic character of Kensington Market. Facing east towards Kensington, the College Condo at Spadina showcases a myriad of colourful glass balconies, which reflect the spectrum of shades and hues found within the market itself.

    Less colourful yet equally as stylish, 297 College features of a black brick podium that’s home to retail businesses on the ground level. Moreover, this podium features chic, elongated window frames, whose contemporary aesthetic sets the tone for the series of tiered volumes above.

    The upper levels at The College Condo at Spadina extend outside of the units throughout nearly the entirety of the tower. This creates long wrap around balconies, partitioned into private outdoor spaces where residents can spend time enjoying some truly captivating views of the city.

    When residents aren’t hanging out in Kensington Market, nor relaxing in their own homes, those who call this building home spend time enjoying the extensive set of amenities. This includes a cinema, an exercise room, a party room and a billiards room.

    The Suites

    Courtesy of the layouts, designed by the innovative Patton Design Studio (formerly Bryon Patton & Associates), 297 College is filled with 226 impressive downtown Toronto condos. Whether seeking one bedroom or a one bedroom plus den suites, which start at around 700 square feet, two-bedroom units ranging from approximately 800-1,000 square feet, or a three-bedroom home that spans over 1,000, there are Toronto condos for sale here for everyone. Each suite is comfortable and luxurious, and all extend out onto private balconies or terraces — some even boasting access to two.

    Moreover, the details give the suites a cool, contemporary vibe — appropriately complemented by environmentally friendly features. Residents have individual control over their suites’ high-tech heating and air conditioning system, with meter on site to help gauge each home’s energy use — although the readings are often low thanks to the water efficient faucets placed in every suite.

    The Neighbourhood

    Those living in the College Condos at Spadina can easily explore the excitement of Kensington Market at their own pace — there’s no rush since it’s right next door. Many of this neighbourhood’s most popular cafés, restaurants, pubs, and clubs are around the corner from 397 College, along the north end of Augusta Avenue.

    Additionally, further south on Augusta, a few local and organic markets line the street. Also here is where one can find Perola’s, a cherished grocery store stocking Latin-American goods that are difficult to find elsewhere in the city. When residents need to stock up on essentials, though, the Independent City Market sits conveniently at the ground floor of their home, proving to be quite the convenience.

    Transportation

    With the building sitting directly on College, a major downtown street, and so close to Spadina as well, those living at The College Condo at Spadina are well served by public transit. There are reliable streetcar options running on both College and Spadina, each of which carry riders to connections onto the subway in about ten minutes from 297 College.

    Alternatively, both College and Spadina serve drivers well, especially for those traveling around the immediate area. And Spadina — with an effective partition separating lanes for streetcars and private vehicles — leads south directly to the Gardiner Expressway in just about ten minutes.
