75 Portland St
About this loft
A constant reminder as to the light-hearted bunch living inside, the façade of the Seventy5 Portland is playful and unique. From the street, offset groups of windows immediately catch the eye, with concrete surrounding each resembling a monochromatic game of Tetris.
Once inside the front doors of 75 Portland Street, however, things become slightly more chic. Built in 2010, Freed Developments received a Pug Award for best new residential building the next year. While Peter Freed is a genius in his own right, he isn’t the only one responsible for the cheerful elegance at the Seventy5 Portland. Common spaces were designed by French designer Philippe Starck, the mastermind behind countless restaurants and hotels around the globe.
Dubbed by Freed as both “whimsical,” yet “futuristic,” the Toronto lofts at 75 Portland Street have the ability to appeal to a wide range of Torontonians. Perhaps a nod to Alice in Wonderland, a 100-foot-long marble table is available for residents to reserve. What’s more, half of this table stretches throughout the lobby, while the half on the other side of the glass is placed in the outdoor courtyard.
Typical for a Freed-built residence in King West neighbourhood, amenities are anything but sparing. Parking is never an issue for residents or their guests, even within the centre of downtown Toronto; a concierge is also available to assist residents 24/7. While a games room offers indoor entertainment, the courtyard is the real pièce de résistance.
While the downtown core is home to numerous high rises, this mid-rise structure is slightly more humble than the rest. At only 11 storeys tall, and containing around 200 units, the condo is intimate while remaining attainable for prospective buyers.
Yet, with a significant number of homes, the options in terms of size are quite wide. Humbly-sized homes desirable to single professionals or couple begin at just under 500 square feet, while the more stately of soft lofts at 75 Portland reach to a stunning 2,100 square feet.
All of the King West condos for sale at the Seventy5 Portland are airy and bright, with open-concept floor plans adding to the soft loft aesthetic. Certain special units, on the other hand, span two levels, and feature rare mezzanine-style layouts. Some take open concept living to the next level, with nothing more than a singular wall separating master bedrooms from their en suites. For those who really value their privacy, other homes have bedrooms cleverly placed at a distance from kitchens and living rooms.
Aesthetically, the homes at the Seventy5 Portland are the quintessential soft loft: modern, sleek, bright, and airy. Wall-to-wall windows escort natural sunlight into every corner of these homes, while corner units take this to the next level. Concrete columns are also found throughout, for a touch of industrial charm, while private outdoor spaces such as balconies or terraces allow urban dwellers to remain in touch with nature.
There’s no place like the Fashion District as a jumping off point for busy Torontonians. When heading out from 75 Portland, it truly feels like the entirety of the city is within reach.
Within minutes, residents can walk to King West for a stroll along one of Toronto’s most sophisticated streets. The only trouble in terms of dining out is choosing a place from the wide array of options that inhabit the neighbourhood. And for the night owls living at the Seventy5 Portland, many the trendiest bars and clubs in Toronto can also be found here.
Nature lovers are also in luck: 75 Portland is surrounded by green spaces awaiting exploration. Just around the corner is Victoria Memorial Park, while even larger parks to run around in include Trinity Bellwoods and Garrison Common. In about 15 minutes on foot, residents can also reach Lake Ontario. From here, the car-free Martin Goodman Trail provides access in either direction along its shores.
With such a central address, residents can reach any area of the city with ease — and by any means of transportation. Streetcars make frequent stops at King and Portland, less than 100 metres away from the front doors of the Seventy5 Portland. From here, travellers can transfer onto subway trains at either St. Andrew or King Station. Bathurst Street and Spadina Avenue are also both short walks away, where streetcar routes carry passengers north and south.
Drivers will love their close proximity to the Gardiner Expressway, which can be accessed in mere minutes via Spadina. From here, the Don Valley Parkway and the 427 are both within close reach.
