A Prebuild Waterfront Condo in Toronto Has Everything for the Savvy Investor

A Prebuild Waterfront Condo in Toronto Has Everything for the Savvy Investor

It’s an Ideal Time to Invest in Prebuild Waterfront Condos

Toronto’s waterfront is on the move – upwards. Prebuild waterfront condo sales are now underway for new developments along the busy eastern stretch of the downtown harbour area, with iconic buildings transforming the skyline.

The city’s waterfront offers just about everything for the investor, as it continues to transform itself into a work-play-live destination. The recreational attributes of the area are many: running and biking trails, parks, boating and easy ferry access to Toronto Island. In addition Toronto’s waterfront is within a quick stroll of the city’s central financial hub. And, when it comes time to play, there are a host of activities on both the waterfront and in the adjacent entertainment district. The major professional sports teams play out their seasons in venues along the waterfront as well.  Public transit is at the doorstep.

All this, in Canada’s biggest city and most dynamic real estate market. The Toronto Real Estate Board(TREB) continues to tout the housing market, with conditions for investing in prebuild waterfront condos – either as rentals and homes – as strong as ever.


New Condos Rising on the East Bayfront

After years of public discussion and careful planning, a neighbourhood is rising in what is called the East Bayfront neighbourhood. This portion of the waterfront, stretching east from Yonge Street towards the Don Valley, was mostly low-rise commercial and industrial until recently. Offices, a campus of George Brown College and parks like Sherbourne Common and Sugar Beach are now lining the waterfront and jogging/biking trails.

One condominium development – Lakeside Residences – is a master-planned community of seven towers, with ground floor retail and green spaces. The first three towers are located at the foot of Sherbourne Street, bordering on Lakeshore Boulevard East. In addition to its proximity to downtown Toronto and the harbour, the project is outstanding for the amenities planned, which include:

  • A Janet Rosenberg + Studio-designed landscaped pedestrian zone, including a free-form space frame by Hariri Pontarini, and a galleria connecting the area to Sherbourne Street.
  • The recreational opportunities at the project’s doorstep, and in particular the harbour-spanning Martin Goodman Trail.  There is space planned for 1700 bicycles!
  • St Lawrence Market is an 8 minute walk, and the financial and the entertainment district is just 15 minutes by foot. The Toronto islands ferries are even closer.

PreBuild Condos Proliferate on Toronto’s East Side

It is not just the east end of the waterfront that is being transformed. In recent years the area just east of the financial district, spreading over to the Don Valley, has seen changes. The Distillery District and Corktown are two new hubs, along with the Regent Park transformation.

A mix of housing – rentals and condos – has reinvigorated the site of the old 96 acres Regent Park housing complex. Integral to the plan are a host of local amenities that emphasise recreation, education, cultural and entertainment needs. A new aquatic centre has been built. A condominium rising at the corner of Dundas and Sumach is one example. Like the prebuild waterfront condominiums, the DueEast will combine beauty with functionality, with 24 hour concierge services, a host of amenities, and a high walking score.
