About this condo
Readers who are familiar with the phrase “they don’t build ‘em like that anymore” can keep that in mind when considering the Chinatown Centre Residence. The building has been standing at 222 Spadina Avenue and 99 Cameron Street in the Chinatown neighbourhood since 1991, which means it’s basically vintage by this point. Yet rather than feel dated, the 8-storey structure appears both durable and timeless.
Built by Mollenhauer Construction, 222 Spadina contains 124 suites. And while the name suggests that the building caters to the Chinese community who have historically taken up residence in the neighbourhood, the Chinatown Centre Residence is most certainly welcome to all.
Situated on top of its namesake shopping mall, the Chinatown Centre, living at 222 Spadina means never having to travel far to grab a bite to eat, stock up on Chinese herbs and spices, or even to get a manicure. In terms of amenities within the condo itself, residents have access to a concierge, sauna, and underground parking – the latter being vital for drivers thinking about living in this dense neighbourhood.
The range of Toronto condos available at 222 Spadina certainly doesn’t spark much jealousy between neighbours. Homes start at around 1,000 and read to approximately 1,400 square feet, and contain one bedroom, two bedrooms, two bedrooms plus a den, or three bedrooms. While 1,000 square feet isn’t necessarily enormous, these homes feel much roomier than many of the cramped Toronto condos for sale today.
There may be multiple ‘Chinatowns’ in Toronto, however when someone mentions the name without specifying which one, they’re almost always referring to the area around Dundas Street and Spadina Avenue. This Chinatown emerged in the 1950s and grew rapidly through the 1960s, and while its Chinese character remains strong today, the neighbourhood is now home to new immigrants from across the globe, as well as second and even third generation Canadians.
One of the best reasons to visit Chinatown has to be for the food. Residents living at 99 Cameron Street can stock up on groceries that are hard to find elsewhere — like fresh lemongrass, lychees, and fresh tofu — without leaving the neighbourhood. Those who don’t feel like cooking, on the other hand, can stroll down Spadina until they find a spot for Peking duck or fresh dumplings.
Chinatown also happens to be surrounded by attractions, including Kensington Market, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and Queen and King Streets West. With an address like 222 Spadina, it’s pretty much impossible to run out of things to do.
Living right on Spadina means residents of the Chinatown Centre Residence have plenty of options for getting around the city. Streetcars travelling up and down Spadina, for example, offer access to Spadina Subway Station, as well as neighbourhoods like the Annex to the north and the Entertainment District to the south. Even drivers living at 222 Spadina will love the fact that they can reach the Gardiner Expressway by simply heading south along Spadina Avenue.
The walk over to St. Patrick Station on the University-Spadina line also takes just around 15 minutes, and those hoping to reach this station in a hurry can shave off a few minutes by hopping on the Dundas streetcar.
