Does your definition of domesticity include residing in a space that's urban, unparalleled and unique? Can you imagine waking up in your very own sun-dappled house-sized perch in the heart of Leslieville, where you're surrounded by birdsong, children's laughter and the buzz of an engaged neighbourhood? How about having all of life's everyday necessities at your doorstep?
If you see yourself living in one of Toronto's hippest 'hoods, then this 2-storey 3 bed + den 3 bath suite may be exactly the dreamy digs you've been searching for! Encompassing over 1,800 square feet of sublime indoor/outdoor space - including an expansive sun-soaked terrace and master suite outdoor aerie - this is elevated urban living at it's best!
Welcome to 899 Queen Street East, Suite 213 in The Logan Residences.
Lovely Leslieville hums with a unique energy that draws you in and invites you to stay. The same can be said for the many hip eateries, cafes, bistros and shops that line its streets and avenues. In fact, Leslieville’s notable restaurants and nightlife has become a draw for visitors; can you imagine how exciting and diverse your life could be if you lived here, within walking distance to endless choices? It’s an urbanite’s dream!
Take one of our faves, Te Aro Café, a mere few minutes away from your front door. This charming café serves quality caffeinated beverages and tasty treats to nosh on, all offered in a space that is concrete & cool, with hints of industrial grit. Seafood-centric Eastside Social is a favourite Leslieville gathering spot. Your local pub could easily be the Roy Public House, where you experience a “Belfast in Leslieville”. Boxcar Social has great ambience in what used to be a library, and then a furniture store - and now a great neighbourhood staple with an impressive selection of whiskeys and spirits. Fine dining on French cuisine in a warm and friendly setting awaits at The Batifole. All of these spots are just a hop, skip and a jump away!
Day to day life is just that much more enjoyable and exciting when you live a stroll away from coveted conveniences. In the mood to treat yourself? Wander over to Bobette & Belle Artisanal Pastries for an indulgent dessert, or pretty up your pad with fresh blooms from Berry Blush. If you're an avid chef or grill master, Rowe Farms Butcher can provide all of your locally sourced meats. And when your shopping list is more pragmatic, Shopper’s Drug Mart, Freshco, Loblaws and the LCBO are all within walking distance as well, meaning you'll complete your daily errands in no time!
A must for discerning urbanites is proximity to green space. Luckily, 899 Queen Street East is practically neighbours with Jimmie Simpson Park, which has become a community hub for Leslievillers. This large 2.6-hectare park, features a ball diamond, sports fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, a wading pool, picnic areas and a playground. It’s the perfect complement to an active lifestyle! The park is also home to the Jimmie Simpson Recreation Centre, which offers a host of programming and recreational activities and facilities for all ages. Love to connect with the natural environment to decompress? This is the ideal location for nature, water and fitness lovers; this property is just a short stroll, bike, or blade away from the sanctuary of the Leslie Spit and the recreation of the Beach. Imagine, a location with accessible cardio cleansing, contemplation, and daydreaming just steps from your door!
Looking to be in proximity to good schools? Luckily, this home is well-situated in that respect! Morse Street Junior PS is less than a 5-minute walk away and offers before and after-school care. That’s convenient! When it's time to move on up to middle school, Queen Alexandra Middle School is easily walkable - no hectic morning drop-offs! - as is well-regarded Riverdale CI, which is the nearby area high school.
Even with Leslieville's rich village life, where nothing feels more than a stroll away, there are still rainstorms and Canadian winters to contend with. On those days when walking isn't an option, you'll love having the 501 Queen Streetcar literally at your doorstep. Getting anywhere in the city is a breeze on this arterial line; the streetcar will whisk you away East or West, or deliver you to the Yonge Subway line lickety-split! For even more choice, the 72 Pape Bus deviates to Carlaw between Gerrard and Lakeshore, meaning you can catch it at the corner - just a block away! And for those dashing off to the airport or heading north to cottage country, its just minutes to Lakeshore, the Gardiner and the Don Valley Parkway.
The Logan Residences
The Logan enjoys a prime slice of Leslieville real estate, sitting smartly on Queen Street East between Logan and Carlaw. Designed by Giovanni A. Tassone Architects and developed by The Daniels Corporation, the building stands six storeys tall with retail space on the ground level. The Logan contains 59 well-appointed 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom suites that range in size from 527 square feet to 1699 square feet. Exuding an intimate boutique feel, it is a welcome addition to the Leslieville streetscape; with a mix of brick and glass finishes, the exterior complements the much-adored heritage of the Leslieville area that characterizes much of the housing stock and area shops.
While this area is rich with amenities, residents of The Logan love the added convenience of on-site facilities, including a gym, rooftop deck, garden, meeting room, and visitor parking. This pet-friendly building even has a dog wash! How neat is that?! We also appreciate the secure bike room, which a no-brainer in a building that boasts a 'Bike Score' of 94! (Not to mention a 'Walk Score' of 83 and a 'Transit Score' of 87!)
Yes, it's a fresh face in the neighbourhood - having just been completed in 2019 - but already The Logan is earning a reputation as a choice address for the discerning urbanite.
A Swish Suite On Queen Street East
This unique 2-storey condominium offers the rarest of living experiences: a smart, stylish space designed with exacting attention to detail but with contemporary comfort in mind. From the moment you cross the threshold, this fresh 3-bed, 3-bath dwelling draws you in with a thoughtful design and bright volumes of space. Just beyond the spacious foyer - outfitted with both a coat closet and ensuite storage closet to tuck away all your seasonal clothing - you'll find a large 3-piece bath and the first of three ample bedrooms that makes an ideal guest room or work-from-home-office!
Just beyond, the suite unfolds into an inviting open plan entertainment space (complete with an electric fireplace!) that is well-proportioned, with natural delineations that create zones for lounging, dining, and cooking. We adore the kitchen in particular, which boasts quality stainless steel appliances, sleek contemporary cabinetry, quartz countertops, a perfectly proportioned peninsula (which doubles as a breakfast bar), and a linear layout that the resident chef will surely appreciate! The whole expansive area is bathed in sunlight streaming through floor-to-ceiling glass that also frames vistas of neighbouring gardens and mature treescapes! Sliding doors usher you out onto the large terrace that's the perfect perch for family BBQs and midnight star-gazing soirees! Planters and screens that flank the terrace provide just enough privacy without severing the connection to the city around you.
Ascending to the second level, the vibe is noticeably calmer, as these rooms cater to comfort, retreat, and relaxation. The master sleeping sanctuary (we adore the custom wall-mounted electric fireplace in this room!) occupies the south-west corner of the floor, with its luxe spa ensuite with double vanity, a custom-built walk-in closet and one our favourite features - a private balcony - perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee as you usher in a new day. Sounds heavenly! This level is also home to a second ample bedroom which boasts floor to ceiling south-facing windows and large closet, an additional four-piece bath for the family or guests, and a convenient laundry closet. Rounding out the upstairs is a bijou bonus space that could easily be a den, media room, exercise area or workspace - the choice is yours!
This unique urban package - ideal for downtown dwellers seeking a fresh contemporary aesthetic - has reasonable common fees of $607.07 and is completed by an uber-convenient underground parking space!
If you’re looking to leap into a fabulous urban lifestyle as a swinging single or cohabitating couple - or if you'll be joining the recent trend of Raising Kids In A Condo - this move-in ready downtown gem might be just what you’ve been looking for!
