About this condo
Situated at 45 Carlton St in The Village neighbourhood, also known as the Church Street Corridor, The Lexington is a 19-storey condominium with a traditional glass and concrete exterior; on the outside The Lexington might not be the most aesthetically pleasing building but if you look beyond the boxy frame you’ll find spacious suites and desirable amenities.
Residents of 45 Carlton have a nice list of extras — gym, indoor pool, indoor track, sauna, squash court, games room, party room, parking garage — plus an amazing neighbourhood to explore.
With spacious suites and great value per square foot, Toronto condos for sale in this building are an excellent choice for empty nesters, who are looking to downsize for a hassle free condo but don’t want to give up too much living space.

Built in 1981, The Lexington is home 343 Toronto condos, with floor plans which are far larger than those found in new buildings; suite sizes range from 1005 square feet for 1 bedroom to 1549 for a 2 bedroom + den. There are no private balconies in this building, but many units feature large solariums.
As with most older buildings, features will vary based on past renovations, but prospective buyers can expect hardwood floors, updated kitchens and bathrooms, ensuite laundry, large walk-in closets, and bedrooms that are spacious enough to add a desk or chair to your furnishings — if you feel so inclined.
