Bloor is one of Canada’s most prominent streets that stretches 25 kilometres and passes through some of the most exclusive and sought after neighbourhoods in Toronto. The section of Bloor Street that runs through Toronto’s Downtown core is home to the most expensive retail space and some of the most famous cultural icons in Canada, but more on that later; let’s talk condos! A very special slice of Toronto, totalling about four city blocks, is home to seven of the most magnificent residential condominiums the GTA has to offer. Whether it’s a resale, assignment or preconstruction unit you’re looking for, Casa, BSN, X Condos, X2 Condos, Couture and Chaz has you covered.
Not quite Yorkville, but right on the cusp, Bloor St. from Yonge to Jarvis and down to Charles St. is where you’ll find this pocket of residential towers with units in very high demand. Casa Condominiums, which began occupancy in early 2010, is an elegant and sophisticated 46-storey glass structure at 33 Charles featuring Armani designed interiors and fantastic hotel-like amenities. Sharing the same street with Casa is Casa 2, whose name may be subject to change. Regardless, Casa 2 is a highly anticipated project that will be just as glorious, if not more so, than its neighbour. Bloor Street Neighbourhood condos or BSN for short is yet another Charles St. gem currently casting a shadow over the future site of Casa 2. BSN offers spectacular layouts, soaring 10’ ceilings and an amenities club that could rival most 5-star hotels. One last stop on Charles St. before we visit Jarvis is Chaz. Scheduled for completion in 2013, Chaz is a uniquely styled condominium that fuses urban flair with luxury living. With a total of 413 units priced from $300K to $2.6 million, the Chaz caters to all tastes and income levels.
The corner of Charles and Jarvis is not as quiet as the interior of Charles St. but it sure is exciting. Right in the thick of things are three of Toronto’s premier condominiums where X marks the spot. The X Condominium is an eye-catching 44-storey dark glass tower with a unique German inspired architecture that is move-in ready. Developer Great Gulf Homes wasn’t satisfied with just 1 luxury condo so they are building another one: X2. Scheduled for completion in 2013, X2 is a dramatic building 42-storeys in height and features “The Core”, a 9th floor amenities facility with a weight room, pool, a piano lounge and more. Last on this list of condos is Couture. Currently under construction Couture will be a sleek and slender glass tower offering sweeping panoramic views of the city. Residents of Couture will be spoiled with an all access pass to Club Couture: A resort style amenities facility.
Any one of these condos would be an unbelievable place to call home. Whether it’s the quiet tree lined Charles St. or the excitement of Jarvis, you’ll be within walking distance of Toronto’s most prevalent venues. With the ROM, U of T, numerous subway connections, extraordinary dining, popular entertainment venues, high-end shopping and other Toronto hotspots so close by, urban sophisticates will appreciate living at the edge of Yorkville.
