    Buying a home in CityPlace

    Unbeknownst to many Torontonians, the small, master-planned community known as CityPlace is in fact the largest residential development in the city. The creation of the neighbourhood resulted from the need to redevelop a Canadian National railway yard near the waterfront. Shortly after Concord Adex Developments took on the project, a mixed-use neighbourhood spanning 44 acres was born.

    While talks of redeveloping the rail yard began as early as the 1960s, the infrastructure wouldn’t be set in place for another 30 years. CityPlace’s final block, which is slated for completion in 2019, will bring two new schools to the neighbourhood: a TDSB and a TCDSB school that share a single building.

    Situated in the core of downtown Toronto, CityPlace consists of the area between Front Street and Lake Shore Boulevard, from Bathurst to Reese Street. Since the neighbourhood intersects with the Entertainment District, it also contains the Rogers Centre. This means the cost of buying a condo in CityPlace can be offset by never having to pay for parking when attending Blue Jays games or concerts.

    Some CityPlace residents, on the other hand, may spend more time in the neighbourhood’s parks than at the Rogers Centre. Canoe Landing Park is more than just a great place for a picnic — it’s also filled with tons of Canadian symbolism. The park contains works of art designed by artist Douglas Coupland, including a canoe-shaped lookout and a mile-long running track in memory of Terry Fox.

    No matter what condo for sale in CityPlace one chooses, the Sobeys Urban Fresh on Fort York Boulevard is always within walking distance. Also on this street are plenty of bars and restaurants, perfect for both date nights and pre-game drinks.

    Condo Life in CityPlace

    There’s not a single-family home to be found in CityPlace. Instead, the neighbourhood is filled with a cohesive looking group of condo towers. Concord Adex initially conceived of 10 numbered blocks for CityPlace, each of which is home to a number of condos that share a common set of amenities. For example, Neo - CityPlace at 4K Spadina Avenue and Montage at 25 Telegram Mews share an amenities space that includes an indoor swimming pool, a rock-climbing wall, and even a karaoke room.

    Some buyers interested in CityPlace condos for sale might want to live in one of the neighbourhood’s original buildings. For this group, either the Matrix at 361 Front Street West will suffice, which were completed in 2002. Others might not want to settle for anything less than the tallest condo in the neighbourhood. Thankfully this still leaves buyers with options, as the West One and the Harbour View Estates I Condos are currently the tallest residential buildings in CityPlace, reaching to 49 storeys each.

    That said, those who want the best possible views should note that Concord Canada House, which is slated to be completed in 2021, will contain over 1,300 suites spread out over 69 storeys. Designed by IBI Group and developed by Concord Adex, the Concord Canada House promises to be the neighbourhood’s most opulent building as well as its tallest. The penthouses will be especially luxurious: balconies are equipped with ceiling heaters, kitchens boast Miele appliances, and residents will have access to smart thermostats.


    Condos for sale in CityPlace are ideal for buyers with cars, as well as those who rely on public transit to get around. Those who do drive can use the Gardiner Expressway to travel east and west along the southern edge of the city. From this major highway, those heading north can also connect onto the Don Valley Parkway to the east or the 427 to the west.

    As for those without cars, living in CityPlace leaves residents with plenty of options for traveling within the city — or leaving Toronto altogether. At Union Station alone, travelers have the choice between VIA Rail trains or GO buses and trains. Anyone heading out of town via plane can also start their journey at Union Station, from which they can hop on the UP train that makes its way to Pearson International Airport. And speaking of air travel, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport isn’t far off either: it takes just 15 minutes to reach by foot from the centre of CityPlace.

    Commuting around the immediate area is made easier thanks to the 121A Fort York-Esplanade bus, which travels from Exhibition Place to Cherry Beach and back. Alternatively, the 510 Spadina streetcar heads north toward Spadina Station, where passengers can transfer onto subway trains moving along the University-Spadina or Bloor-Danforth subway lines. Southbound Spadina streetcars, on the other hand, turn onto Queens Quay West, loop up Bay, and stop right outside Union Station.
