75-85 Queens Wharf Rd, Toronto
About this condo
Towering to 41 Storeys at 85 Queens Wharf Rd on the corner of Queens Wharf and Fort York Blvd, Quartz | Spectra is a stylish high-rise in the CityPlace neighbourhood. Rising above a concrete podium with shaded window panes, this building’s exterior features colourful accents of green, red, yellow, and blue, which breaks up the monotony of what would otherwise be a standard condo tower.
There's no specific kind of buyer for Toronto condos for sale in this building, as they come in a variety of layouts and price points, ideal for everyone from first-time home buyers to established professionals and small families.
If you’ve been looking for a flashy new building with all the extras — you’re in for a treat. The amenities offered at Quartz | Spectra are staggering; full fitness centre, yoga studio jacuzzi, pool, sauna, spa, party room, meeting room, media room, games room, common rooftop patio, rooftop gardens, on site security, 24hr concierge, and parking garage.
Where luxury and affordability meet, you’ll find Quartz | Spectra. With a selection of different layouts and exposures, buyers have plenty of choice here; unit sizes range from 437 feet for a 1 bedroom to 1600 for the largest 3 bedroom suite.
Within these suites you’ll find executive finishes — wide plank hardwood floors, upgraded kitchens with stainless steel appliances, floor to ceiling windows, subway tile backsplashes in bathrooms, private balconies, and spacious bedrooms. All suites follow open concept layouts, and maximize living space.
Units in this building are on par with the average price per square foot of downtown Toronto condos, so while you won’t get a steal, you certainly won’t overpay either; for those who like to entertain, there’s visitor parking and guest suites for overnight stays.
CityPlace is a high density neighbourhood, with a tight-knit community of professionals of all ages — though most tend to be young. As a resident, you have a great location to take advantage of nature in The Waterfront, or exciting attractions in the nearby Entertainment District.
Green spaces are often overlooked when it comes to condo searches, as most buyers are more concerned with transit lines, dining options, and urban convenience. However, you’ll never be short on options for enjoying nature if you call this area home. Just a few minutes south, you’ll find plethora of lakeside parks, with walking trails, sports fields, and an abundance of green grass for picnics. As well, Garrison Common is just west of your building for a scenic stroll and a history lesson.
For dining out, you have options nearby like Roses New York, Roywoods, and Macho Tex Mex Radio Bar. If you can’t function without your morning coffee, you have a Tim Hortons just across the street, and several cafes in the area. For a more diverse dining experience you can wander north to the Entertainment District for everything from fast food to fine-dining.
Entertainment options are equally impressive — you can play tourist and hit up the CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, and Steam Whistle brewery. Sports fans can walk to jays’ games, and revel in the thrill of victory — or the agony of defeat — at one of many nearby pubs. Music fans have venues like the Scotiabank Arena and Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, plus many small pubs for local talent. And for the night owls, there are countless bars and clubs in the area.
85 Queens Wharf Rd has a 92 Walk Score — which definitely would have been sticker worthy in elementary school. Residents can easily run errands on foot if they so choose, and there are multiple grocery stores within a 10 minute walk. For those who rely on public transit, there are streetcars on Queens Quay, Spadina, and Bathurst, and several bus routes crossing the neighbourhood.
For longer trips, Union Station is within walking distance for subway lines and GO Transit. Even car owners have the luxury of a great starting point — a quick trip south on Spadina will have you on the Gardiner Expressway in minutes.
