After all Spring blooms fresh beginnings!

With live music venues, charming cafes and eateries (including our faves Nadege Patisserie and Lisa Marie), an abundance of galleries and some seriously fun places to shop. Taking care of your daily errands is a breeze with a nearby Sobeys. Did we mention there is the first-ever-in-Canada Nutella Cafe inside? How's that for a daily treat? A short stroll east, at Lower Spadina you’ll find a Shoppers Drugmart and at the foot of Jarvis, you’ll find the LCBO, a huge Loblaws, and even the trendy Joe Fresh.
Are you a culture junkie? The Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre and Exhibition Place wrap this residence, making it all super-accessible!
And if you commute, there's a street car stop a few steps from your door, Union station is just a fifteen minute walk away, and an onramp to the Gardiner Expressway is nearby. Plus, it's lickety-split to the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport for easy jet-setting.
Completed in 2010, 28 Dan Leckie Way - known as Panorama Condominiums - was developed by Concord Adex. Designed by Quadrangle Architects, the building was constructed to appeal to young urban professionals. Having 29 floors, this 400 unit condominium offers one and two-bedroom suites, some with dens that can be used as home offices or guest rooms. The suites feature modern finishes, designer kitchens and floor-to-ceiling windows. The building boasts an enjoyable list of amenities from 24 hour concierge and visitor parking to well-equpped fitness centre and a spectacular rooftop patio with alfresco bar, fireplace, BBQ pit, hot tub and shower, along with ground level commercial and retail development. Known for its proximity to the lake, the building was designed so that many of the suites take advantage of spectacular Lake Ontario views and Toronto’s Harbourfront.

Configured as a one bedroom and den, this urban dwell is tailor-made to be a love nest for a newly cozy twosome, or a perfect pad for a young urbanite seeking the conveniences of city life.
