Drop your bags and plant your flag - you’ve reached The Summit II! Our intrepid owner loved the hip King West address and unbeatable amenities offered in the complex (they’re seriously amazing!) but was frustrated by the inefficient layout created by clunky solariums in the master bedroom and living room. A $70,000+ total revamp in 2017 delivered a completely reimagined suite that maxes what savvy buyers value most – space, light, and CN tower views! Add in sleek, modern finishes and an A++ master bedroom, and only one question remains – what are you waiting for?
Welcome to Suite 304 - 705 King St W in The Summit II!
Cutting edge, cool and rapidly expanding because of its lure and charm, King West is Toronto’s answer to New York’s sublime Soho Village. This is the epicentre of big city living, where young professionals live where they work and work where they live. They are drawn here because they covet the ability to walk to all corners of their lives - both for work and play. Residents here are within walking distance to Toronto’s Entertainment District. Sports fans and music lovers will appreciate being so close to Rogers Centre and the Air Canada Centre - where they can catch games and concerts. There are reputable schools in the neighbourhood as well, including St. Mary Catholic School and Niagara Street Junior Public School.
For those who celebrate a walking life, The Summit II is just steps to King West's stellar restaurant and nightlife scene, and a hop, skip and a jump to the Thompson Hotel's always-open Thompson Diner! Neighbourhood amenities include an abundance of home furnishing shops, art galleries and clothing retailers to please and entertain. Don't miss the stellar offerings like Edulis for unique ‘wild and foraged’ fare, Bar Buca or Terroni for incredible Italian, and Simit and Chai to satisfy your sweet tooth with it’s delectable Turkish treats! This suite is just a stroll away from the famous West Queen West 'hood, now a hub of creativity, collaboration, and community. The many galleries are mixed in with unique boutiques, purveying decor, modern and antique furniture, vintage clothing, textiles, gifts, and food, each with character worthy of their creative surroundings.
If you enjoy quiet days outdoors, love open air exercise, or simply occasionally need to escape the 'bright lights, big city' vibe to kick back amongst green things, lush and sprawling Trinity-Bellwoods park is just a couple blocks north, with its community centre pool and home of the annual Queen West Art Crawl. Stanley Park a few blocks west on King Street and is a favourite of the area’s residents (and their canine companions!). Alternatively, take a stroll toward the water where the expansive recreational and cultural activities of Harbourfront always hold adventure. Don't feel like walking? With the King streetcar line at your front door, it's just a quick ride to the Financial District, the Entertainment District, and St. Lawrence Market. Plus it's mere moments to the Gardiner Expressway, which provides speedy access to the airport or to cottage country. This is truly living in the centre of it all!
The Summit II is located on King Street West between Bathurst and Tecumseth. Part of a multi-building complex consisting of both high rise condos and low rise townhomes, the Summit complex is famous for both it’s desirable location and it’s incredible amenities. The amenities are equally impressive both inside and out. Sun lovers will rejoice when they see the enviable outdoor pool (now open for the season!), park like central courtyard, playground and shared BBQs. The Summit owners are spoiled for choice with a second indoor pool available for use on rainy days (technically any day but who doesn’t love soaking in a bit of sun?). Fitness fans will appreciate the newly renovated gym as well as the workout room (check the schedule for class times), yoga room, squash courts and saunas for a post-workout recovery. Those who are less athletically inclined or simply on their off day can also have a little fun. The long list of amenities continues with two movie theaters, a hobby room with tools, a meeting room, loads of visitor parking…this long list is making me out of breath! Did we forget to mention the 24 hour concierge located in the building (a unique feature in this complex)? Each floor of The Summit II has two sets of washers and dryers for the residents’ use. A dry cleaner offering wash and fold service is on the exterior ground level for those who like to have someone else be in charge of the laundry.
Suite 304 offers a rare opportunity for buyers who desire a truly move in ready unit. This two bedroom, 970 sq ft suite previously included a number of dated design features that limited the functionality and of the space. Both the living room and the master bedroom were enclosed by solariums that split the spaces and blocked the natural light. The solariums were den-like but not necessarily large enough to be truly functional. Our savvy seller saw the potential in the space and completed an extensive renovation to the suite in 2017 including both a total kitchen and bathoom remodel. Totaling over $70,000, this massive project successfully expanded the functional space, allowed in more natural light, and introduced modern finishes to reflect current tastes and trends. The ceilings were raised, bulkheads were removed, sound proofing between the floors was improved… the scope and thoughtfulness of this rejuvination is quite impressive! Please see the link for the full details of this project. The work was completed with full approval of the condominium board.
