    About 68 Merton StreetLife Condos

    Located at 68 Merton Street, this modern 14-storey building strikes an impressive figure — with its tiered exterior and colorful glass accents, Life Condos is an eye-pleasing addition to the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. Life Condos is a boutique condominium, so amenities are not as extensive as what you might find in a larger building; gym, party room, meeting room, concierge, and parking garage.

    This building is a great choice for professionals who work in downtown Toronto but want a quiet reprieve from busy city life — with a condo at 68 Merton you have a quiet street to call home, and a short subway ride to the downtown core. There's also some appeal here for empty nesters, who are looking to downsize from a detached home.

    One of the major draws of living in Mount Pleasant is access to nature; from 68 Merton Street you are only minutes away from the Kay Gardner Beltline Trail — a beautiful tree-shrouded path connecting to parks throughout the area. Parents with young children have playgrounds and splash pads at June Rowlands Park, and Oriole Park.

    The Suites

    Mount Pleasant is a quiet, charming neighbourhood. While primarily residential, this community is home to trendy cafes, cozy restaurants, expansive green spaces — and all of this is just a 20 minute subway ride from Union Station.

    Toronto condos for sale at Life Condos are spaciously designed and follow a variety of floor plans for studio, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and 3 bedroom condos; sizes range from 500 to 1300 square feet.

    Units have 9 foot ceilings, marble or granite countertops, ensuite laundry, walk-in closets, stainless steel appliances, soaker tubs in master or main bathroom, and private balconies.

    The Neighbourhood

    If you’re concerned about sacrificing convenience for a quiet location, then 68 Merton should lay your fears to rest. From your front door at Life Condos you have several cafes to choose from for grabbing your morning coffee — there’s Palate just down the Street on Merton, you can stroll up Mount Pleasant to Delimark Cafes, Jules Cafe Patisserie, or Thobors Limited; there’s also a Second Cup, Tim Hortons, and Starbucks nearby on Yonge.

    Mount Pleasant has plenty of great restaurants to choose from — and convenient fast-food locations — there’s Chacho's for Mexican food, Red Lantern Pub has comfort food and pool tables, you can check out Smoked & Cracked for lobster rolls and chowder, plus Eglinton is to the north and packed with restaurants and pubs. For quick pick-ups, there’s McDonald’s, KFC, A&W, and Harvey’s on Eglinton.

    For groceries there’s Sobeys Urban Fresh Balliol, Friends Fine Food & Groceries and Friends Fine Food & Groceries on Yonge. Plus, the Yonge Eglinton Centre is less than a 10 minute walk away with boutiques, big box stores, and plenty of choices for fashion and technology.

    Transportation

    68 Merton Street has a walk score of 92 — residents can run most of their errands on foot but may require a vehicle of public transit to accomplish them all. For those who rely on public transit to get to work, it’s just a 5 minute walk to Davisville Station for the Yonge University line.

    Drivers can reach the nearest highway by taking McRae Drive to Laird, and on to Eglinton for the Don Valley parkway. For the 401, head north on Bayview for the nearest on-ramp.
