What if we told you that you don’t have to compromise space to live in a desirable neighbourhood like The Junction? What if we told you that you could combine the conveniences of condo-living with the comforts of a house? If you are dreaming of living in an established urban neighbourhood, where community and family life surround you, while still being able to access all the conveniences and amenities that life in a vibrant city neighbourhood has to offer, then you will find this latest offering immensely appealing.
Welcome to 61 Heintzman Street, Suite #107
We know it’s not always easy to find a residence that speaks to you - especially in a hot Toronto real estate market where bidding wars are as common as TTC service interruptions - so whether you’re a budget-conscious first-time buyer, someone who prefers the ease of condo-living or on the search for a place that’s sufficiently ‘house-sized’ to accommodate your family, you'll love our latest offering located in The Junction neighbourhood.
Did you know The Junction was predominantly a manufacturing community with working class housing dating from the late 19th century, where notable companies such as Canadian Cycle & Motor Co., Campbell Milling Company and the Heintzman Piano Company were located? More recently, this neighbourhood has undergone a rebirth as the central location and reasonable price points have appealed to a wide demographic, including young families, urban professionals, artists and entrepreneurs.
Renown for its ban on the sale of alcohol for over 100 years - as a way to deter the 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. The Raw Chemist Juice Bar serves up healthy smoothies and cold-pressed juices perfect for hot summer days, and Cut the Cheese satisfies the craving for comfort food. 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. 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.
Despite the changes and local developments, this family-friendly west Toronto neighbourhood has managed to retain its small town charm, and although it feels a bit off the beaten path, it has all the characteristic of a prime Toronto location with easy access to the TTC. Take a 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.
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 is 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.
