10. The Manderley Condos

8. Condominiums at Square One District

Taking the number six spot is the famous Reina Condos coming to Etobicoke! Composed of an all-star roster of seasoned industry veterans, these developers are looking to build an unprecedented luxury residence where the female perspective will characterize everything from the street-level design to unit layouts.
These developers aim to provide a voice to expectant mothers with an online questionnaire that asks explicitly about the struggles of raising children. Potential upgrades include communal storage space for strollers on the first floor, bedrooms designed for children and even a communal kitchen as an amenity so families can host large gatherings.
The developer has said they expect the building's design to be U-shaped and feature a step-back, consisting of 200 units, 5,000 square feet of indoor amenities as well as a 6,500 square feet of outdoor space.

Additionally, Sheridan College is just 10 minutes away, making this development a great place for post-secondary students to reside. This area is also filled with tons of greenery and natural reserves, perfectly suited for outdoor enthusiasts. Some of these parks include Millstone Park, Fairmount Park and West Oak Trails Community Park while Fourteen Mile Creek is a natural reserve that offers a 10-kilometre hiking trail that gives residents a chance to take a break from the fast-paced city life.
Coming to the revitalized Regent Park neighbourhood is LeftBank Condos which will include four two-storey townhomes. Occupying five lots, this ambitious development will rise 28 storeys and will house 385 dwelling units with its four townhomes integrated into the building's base.
Additionally, the tower's significant step-backs will allow for many of the units to feature expansive balconies and terraces, offering lively views of the neighbourhood and the adjacent Don River.

The tower will stand 31 storeys tall with views towards the 8 acre park or facing the dynamic new Dupont and is expected to be a modern residential tower with spacious, open-concept floor plans.
This modern residential tower will harmoniously blend with the previous towers in the complex - including a brand new 95,000 sq.ft modern community centre with state-of-the-art equipment and programming.

8 Wellesley Residences on Yonge is proposed as a 55-storey condominium structure, with a 50-storey tower anchored by an expansive five-storey podium. Both Chicago-based bKL Architecture and Toronto's own Rafael + Bigauskas Architects are behind the striking design. Church and Wellesley condos are in high demand, and it's no surprise because the area attracts a significant number of professionals.
Within minutes, residents of the area can arrive at high-density employment districts like the Bay Street Corridor and the Financial District, as well as the Discovery District, which is home to many medical and science-related headquarters. Both Ryerson University and the University of Toronto are within walking distance. 8 Wellesley Residences on Yonge is not only a great place to call home, but a fantastic option for investors.
Downtown Toronto condos make great investments. This particular stretch is a unique one, featuring strong community roots and access to some of the city's best neighbourhoods and attractions. Taking the number one spot is Burke Condos located between Sherbourne Street to the west, Parliament Street to the east, Bloor Street to the north and Howard Street to the south.
The first tower, Burke Condos by Concert is a 53 storey high-rise building with a total of 500 units offering a mix of studios, one-bedrooms, two bedrooms and three bedrooms.

Additionally, commuting to the city's Financial District and other high-density employment hubs takes just minutes. Ryerson University and the University of Toronto are nearby as well.
We loved mixed-use communities like this one, especially with the unique incorporation of the site's existing heritage structures. Not only does this allow residents to enjoy all the luxuries of modern condominium living, but the ability to work, play and run errands all within a few blocks is a great perk, and largely considered to be the way of the future for developments in the GTA.
Although we are living in challenging and unprecedented times, the sale and construction of real estate must keep going especially since shelter for all is essential for a functioning society. The GTA's Fall lineup of pre-construction condo and townhome launches allows you to still invest and own in some of the regions most attractive and most in-demand neighbourhoods.
