Welcome to 60 Heintzman Street, Suite 636
There is an 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. This exceptionally affordable offering is located in the hot and high-demand Junction neighbourhood where the friendly and hip community vibe attracts young families, urban professionals, artists and entrepreneurs.
The Junction was originally a manufacturing community with working class housing dating from the late 19th century, geographically located where notable companies such as Canadian Cycle & Motor Co., Campbell Milling Company and the Heintzman Piano Company were situated. Before The Junction underwent a rebirth it was neighbourhood chock full of history.
Renowned for its ban on the sale of alcohol for over 100 years (to deter industrial workers from drinking), The Junction re-introduced liquor licenses in 2001 when the first drink was poured east of Keele Street at Shoxs Sports Saloon. Eliminating prohibition had a positive effect on the community, as restaurants and bars opening along Dundas Street fueled more street life spawning more entrepreneurial retail. These days restaurants like Vesuvio are filled with local residents, serving up what many claim is the best pizza in the city, while eateries like Cool Hand of a Girl serve up wholesome, organic dishes perfect for the days when you just don’t have the time to make it yourself. On the weekend, stop in at the Sweet Potato to stock up on organic goods for the week, or visit the Farmer’s Market for locally grown produce in High Park. If you need an energy boost, cafes like Crema Coffee Co. and The Good Neighbour Espresso Bar serve up delicious caffeinated bevies. And if you love a good smoothie or freshly pressed juice, The Raw Chemist will be your go-to place. The neighbourhood is also turning into something of a furniture and design destination with great shops like Mjolk, Smash and Post + Beam. You don’t have to go far for great design, whether your taste is contemporary, traditional or urban chic.
This west Toronto neighbourhood has managed to retain its small town charm, likely due to its distance from the downtown core. Although it may feel, for some, a bit off the beaten path, it has all the characteristics of a prime Toronto location thanks to easy access to the TTC. Take the five minute bus ride down Keele Street to Keele Station and Bloor West Village, or a ten minute bus ride across Dundas West to Roncesvalles Village. Either way, if you’re seeking a place that marries panache with cool, this brilliant space is ideal for the live/work entrepreneur.
Heintzman Place Condominiums, located at 60/61 Heintzman Street, was built on a historic site of the renowned producer of Canadian pianos. Completed in 2011 by award winning developer, Delterra’s Options for Homes, this is the first high-rise development in the neighbourhood and offers stunning city and lake views, close proximity to High Park and easy access to TTC and downtown. Although at first the building may seem somewhat monolithically conventional, many are pleasantly surprised by the quality of the finishes and attention to detail that are frequently lacking in other developments. The complex has appropriately scaled amenities, abundant guest parking and several smart features including a green roof and solar panels for heating water.
Suite 636 combines over 600 square feet of urban condo essentials. The smart and functional open concept layout features an entertainment space that accommodates both sitting and dining areas. The stylish compact kitchen is fitted with all the essentials, and the breakfast bar offers extra counter space for casual dining. The bright and cozy master bedroom strikes a welcoming note and includes a spacious double closet. Just off the foyer is the den which can easily serve as an office or a reading nook. But if it’s views you want, the south-facing balcony perch is where you can relax and indulge in the picturesque vistas of the Toronto skyline. This inviting retreat is a delightful dwell for those seeking a turn-key residence tailored with their style in mind.
Heintzman Place Condominiums is a popular choice for the budget-conscious buyer looking to combine the easy, breezy, condo lifestyle with a rooted, cool neighbourhood vibe. With added conveniences such as building amenities including a gym, BBQ terrace, ample visitor parking, bike racks, and not to mention the low maintenance fees, this family-friendly and pet-friendly residence is a fantastic offering not to be missed.
