The Humber is an upcoming condo community from Options For Homes
Rare is the opportunity to live next to unbridled nature while having easy access to the urban vitality of downtown Toronto. The Humber is an upcoming condo community that offers just that – and a down payment boost that makes homeownership more accessible for everyone.
Nestled on the banks of the Humber River at Lawrence Ave. W. and Weston Rd., The Humber is a riverside oasis in Weston Village, one of Toronto’s up-and-coming neighbourhoods. With 13-km of lush parkland trails at its door and uninterrupted, Instagram-worthy southwest views on the river’s bend that will never be obstructed, this 232-unit, 22-storey condo is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream.
Meanwhile, it’s located a mere three-minute walk from the Weston UP Express stop and is only a quick 15-minute zip to Union Station or 12 minutes to Pearson, putting all the city has to offer within easy reach, making The Humber’s location the best of both worlds.
With The Humber, which is developed by Options for Homes and built by Deltera (part of the Tridel Group of Companies), you can be assured of high-quality condos at more affordable prices. It’s something that Options has been doing for 25 years (including the first three buildings in The Distillery District and a development in The Junction). Prices are kept as low as possible by forgoing costly amenities such as pools, while investing in beautiful common spaces and environmental features such as solar panels. This helps keep maintenance fees low and stable, which are a city-low of $0.49 per sq. ft. Options also brings homeownership within reach with its down payment boost of up to 24 per cent for families making their first purchase, and requiring only 5 per cent total down payment.
“We’re able to help families who can afford the carrying costs of homeownership by giving them an extra down payment boost,” says Options for Homes Director of Sales and Marketing Mary Pattison. “That’s often all someone needs to become a homeowner.”
Because Options sells only to homeowners and not to investors, life at The Humber is ideally suited for families and those who value community. Sheena McDonald, who along with her husband purchased a three-bedroom suite at The Humber, says this focus on building community was an important factor in their decision to buy. “I feel like it’s rare. We have a number of friends who live at Heintzman (in The Junction) and I’ve learned through them that that sense of community actually does exist in Options developments,” she says. “It seems like it’s not your typical condo situation in Toronto.”
With a large percentage of two- and three-bedroom suites, The Humber is designed to suit the needs of families of all sizes. It’s also pet-friendly, as homeowners are able to own up to two pets, and its smokeless policy – which permits only vaping of tobacco or cannabis in the building, including private homes – mitigates the negative impacts of smoking for all of The Humber’s residents.
Speaking of community, The Humber is set amid a neighbourhood bustling with urban renewal. Weston already boasts renowned community events and amenities such as the Weston Farmers’ Market (the city’s oldest), its own Santa Claus parade, Weston Lions Park and Arena, but now it’s getting a cultural boost with the Artscape Weston Commons, which is home to artist housing, Urban Arts and Shakespeare in Action.
Quality, community and unparalleled natural beauty are hallmarks of The Humber. With excellent transit options, a rejuvenating neighbourhood, and down payment support that makes homeownership possible, The Humber is a perfect place to call home.
