Condos are going up all the time in Toronto but it seems that some neighborhoods are seeing more new developments than others. With some, condo developers are seeing the potential to turn areas that have not been used well in the past into amazing new residential and commercial areas while in others condos are there to allow a greater number of people to live right in the heart of the city. If you're looking for a place to set up your patio set and big screen television in a new downtown condo here are some of your best options when it comes to neighborhoods.
Queen and King West are seeing some of the best and most innovative buildings in the city. While there were a few condo complexes in this region fifteen years ago the skyline definitely did not look the same as it does today. Now, between Bathurst and Dufferin, you will find dozens of buildings that are less than a decade old or are still in construction. These include some of the best downtown Toronto condos with great amenities, an easy commute to the rest of the city, and even some with green building elements.
If you've got a little more money to spend than you may be better off looking in the prestigious Bloor and Yonge region. You will find buildings like 18 Yorkville that offer all of the latest and greatest designs and features offered to today's condo owners. This is the area of the city where the Trump International Hotel & Tower is currently in construction and puts haute couture shopping and fine dining right at your doorstep.
Toronto is home to a beautiful waterfront and condo developers are taking advantage of it whenever they can. Those interested in a room with a view should look into units available in the city's Harbourfront District or along the Gardiner Expressway going west towards Etobicoke. While you may not be able to afford the same amount of space that you would in a single-family home in Cabbagetown, you will be close to public transit, lots of shops and amenities, and in an area that likely has some potential appreciation value.
While the boroughs of Toronto and the surrounding communities cannot boast the concentrated neighborhoods that downtown sections of the city are now seeing, there are still some great options when it comes to owning a condo. If you're looking for waterfront properties with a slightly lower price tag there are units available in Oshawa, Whitby, Oakville, and Burlington. If you're looking for a little bit of a discount with the same luxury as in Yorkville you should check out buildings like Absolute Condo Mississauga. It is known as one of the best-designed complexes in the entire country.
