Success has a lot to do with versatility. Wouldn’t you agree? This also applies when looking for your perfect pad. Living in a downtown neighbourhood means having everything at your fingertips - much like royalty. But a truly versatile neighbourhood is also great for anyone, particularly those that want immediate access to amenities, transportation and their places of business.
There is untold merit to quality of life by living in a neighbourhood that mixes it up, offering inhabitants the opportunity to experience, and re-experience their surroundings simply as a matter of daily life. The Olde City of York does just that by combining character, urban life, and convenience.
Welcome to Suite 1615 at 230 King Street East
Located just east of the central business district along King and Front Streets East, this amazing neighbourhood boasts a wonderful patina and human scale streetscape dating from the 1860s. For those in the know, this vintage pocket of architecturally resplendent buildings with contemporary mid-rise infill developments provides an engaging street life with the very best of urban amenities. Known for its high-end, designer furniture stores, community college including the city’s top culinary institute, and burgeoning restaurant scene, Olde Town is a ‘dream come true’ urban village destination for many professionals who love to live their life on foot.
This coveted neighbourhood is the home to Kings Court, a contemporary condominium located on the northeast corner of Sherbourne and King Street East. This landmark building is conveniently located on the fringe of the Distillery District and a short walk to the St. Lawrence Market area as well as the financial core. Not to mention, the easy access to the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway, along with the 24-hour King streetcar connecting directly to the Yonge and University Subway lines right outside the lobby doors give a new meaning to door-to-door service.
Back in the late 1800s, Town of York, along with St. Lawrence Market, was home to people that worked in the area, traded, sold, socialized, attended church and, on occasion, formed secret alliances and planned rebellions and uprisings. Fast-forward to the 21st century, and you have a versatile neighbourhood where old and new coexist. Heritage buildings stand alongside modern condominiums and streets are dotted with design retailers, galleries and purveyors of all daily necessities.
Exploring and savouring all this neighbourhood has to offer is the perfect way for a busy urbanite to forget about the office life and spend some time getting to know this area, over and over again. Line up for brunch at waffle-specialists, Le Petit Dejeuner, or settle in for an after work nosh at the Carbon Bar. Fresh, fine foods are just around the corner at the St. Lawrence Market, and a short stroll south will take you to amazing green spaces on Lake Ontario, including Sugar Beach and amenities of Harbourfront. There is no doubt that residents of 230 King Street East are living life enriched by location and its conveniences.
