Lake Suites at Lakeside Residences

Waterfront living is highly prized – the view, the location, the lifestyle. Toronto’s waterfront is climbing the ranks of world-class waterfront real estate, and has recently been compared to those in San Francisco, Sydney, Stockholm and Capetown. Greenland Group (Canada) is ready to break ground for construction on Lake Suites at Lakeside Residences.

Lake Suites is located closest to the water, offering unobstructed views across the horizon. With unmatched lake and city views, picturesque panoramas are only the start of what makes Lakeside Residences the ideal place to call home.

Suites and amenities have been designed to parallel the exceptional location and lifestyle – infused with quality, craftsmanship and showstopping style. Lobby interiors are inspired by nature, evoking a sense of tranquility and calm. The contemporary appeal of the lobby extends through the design of amenity spaces and suites.

Going beyond traditional urban offerings, suites simply indulge residents in spacious comfort. The larger two- and three-bedroom suites cater to those who love to entertain, enjoy a guest room or home office, a growing family, or simply downsizing from a large family home without giving up the lifestyle.

Designed by Toronto’s award-winning firm, II BY IV Design, suites at Lake Suites are beautifully appointed, in harmony with the lake and surrounding outdoor spaces. Many units feature floor-to-ceiling windows and open concept layouts, as well as balconies and terraces that are perfectly positioned for breathtaking views in every direction.

The 3.85-acre master-planned community has an absolutely ideal location. Located at Sherbourne and Queen’s Quay, residents can enjoy an active lifestyle, with running and bicycle trails, including the Don River Valley Trail, Cherry Beach close by and Sugar Beach across the street. Tying into the recreational culture of the waterfront, outdoor condo amenities include a rooftop swimming pool, putting green, outdoor dining and barbecue entertainment spaces, and a fireside lounge with uncompromised views of Lake Ontario.

Residents at Lake Suites can also enjoy an urban lifestyle, being so close to the city centre and surrounded by exceptional cultural amenities. Shopping, cafes, transit, marinas, dining, entertainment, and major Toronto attractions such as the Harbourfront Centre, Scotiabank Arena and Sony Centre – the area has it all.

As one of the largest waterfront renewal projects in the world, the federal, provincial and municipal governments are investing $1.25 billion to revitalize Toronto’s waterfront, resulting in an additional $10 billion investment from the private sector, including Google’s Sidewalk Labs right next door. The master plan for the East Bayfront neighbourhood includes a network of pedestrian connections and pathways merging the city with the waterfront. The area will become a true extension of the downtown core.

Now that summer is here and construction is scheduled to start, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the waterfront community and consider making Lake Suites at Lakeside Residences your new home. For further information, visit the website.

South Core, one of Toronto’s fastest-growing neighbourhoods

Latest News

South Core, one of Toronto’s fastest-growing neighbourhoods

By Gale Beeby

Harbourfront and Fort York – the area known as the South Core – is one of downtown Toronto’s fastest-growing neighbourhoods. It reaches south of the railway tracks to Lake Ontario, and from Yonge Street to Bathurst Street. Perhaps it all started when Concord Adex started developing CityPlace, or when Menkes built the Telus office tower, but the area has blossomed. Move a little farther west, from Bathurst Street to Strachan Avenue, and you’ll find the pocket known as Fort York.

Housing Options

Most of the major players have a piece of the action here. Add in the condo corridor along Harbourfront and the ongoing development of the Fort York neighbourhood, there are units for every taste and budget.

Leisure Pursuits

With both the Rogers Centre and the Air Canada Centre located in the South Core, it’s a sports fans’ wonderland with baseball, basketball, hockey and football – along with the musical treats those venues host – all within walking distance. Toronto’s newest attraction, Ripley’s Aquarium, has become a huge draw, as is the CN Tower.

Parks & Rec

The Harbourfront area is home to a number of marinas, boat charter companies and the Empire Sandy, Toronto’s best-known sailing ship. The Harbourfront Centre holds a number of events throughout the year and has an outdoor winter skating rink. The Harbourfront Canoe & Kayak Centre holds classes for every level, including the newest craze, stand-up paddleboarding.

Canoe Landing Park, 20 acres of parkland developed by Concord Adex in CityPlace, is host to a number of events, including summer movie nights and the Terry Fox Miracle Mile run. The park gets its name from a large red canoe – big enough for people to stand in and see over the Gardiner to Lake Ontario – designed by Douglas Coupland.

Access to the Martin Goodman Trail, which is the Toronto portion of the 730-kilometre Waterfront Trail around Lake Ontario, can be made at a number of points in the area. For those who enjoy sailing, the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, the Island Yacht Club and the Toronto Island sailing club are located just across the harbour on the Toronto islands.

The Fort York National Historic Site – built in 1793 and the location where the Battle of York came to an end during the War of 1812 – was the home of a military garrison until the 1930s.

The Music Garden is one of the best-kept secrets in Toronto. Located at the foot of Spadina Avenue, the park offers live music in the summers and has an incredible garden. Just west, at the foot of Bathurst Street, you’ll find Ireland Park, which was opened in 2007 as a memorial to the more than 38,000 Irish immigrants who took refuge from the famine in Toronto in 1847.

Retail Therapy

There are grocery stores in the South Core and Maple Leaf Square, where there is also a LCBO, is connected to the city’s transit and the PATH System, a 27-kilometre underground network of shopping, services and dining outlets. Loblaws is in the process of converting its former warehouse at Bathurst Street and Lake Shore Boulevard West into a new retail centre, including a Joe Fresh and an LCBO.

Easy Access

Maple Leaf Square is connected to Union Station – with TTC and GO Transit connections – through a variety of inter-connected walkways and the PATH System. For those who live along Harbourfront or in the Fort York district, the LRT line along Queens Quay makes access to Union Station a breeze. CityPlace residents can connect to Union Station by the Spadina streetcar or an easy stroll along Front Street. And for those who need to travel farther afield, Toronto Billy Bishop Airport gives residents access to Porter and Air Canada flights to Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, New York, Boston and Chicago, to name a few destinations.

Fort York: 89

Lakeside Residences By Google Smart City

Live minutes to Toronto’s East Harbour Development

Don’t miss this limited time opportunity to live in Lakeside Residences, Toronto’s Google Smart City. A unit of Google’s parent company has been contracted to map out a Smart City on Toronto’s waterfront, which will aim at achieving data-driven technology to improve the quality of city life.

The proposal is to develop a 12-acre environmentally-friendly mixed-use area that will represent North America’s largest example of a Smart City.

Accompanying the Smart City is the beautiful and tranquil lakeshore waterfront. Live right next to the lake and be immersed in its beauty while living at Lakeside Residences, offering a variety of inspired suites, including:

City Suites (Floors 2-14), Park Suites (Floors 2-15), Sky Suites (Floors 16-39) and Upper Sky Suites (Floors 40-49) available from the high $500,000s with anticipated closing in summer 2022.

Enjoy a bite to eat using the rooftop terrace barbecue and lounge areas with a fire pit and cabanas. Take advantage of the fitness amenities offered to all residences, including yoga, Pilates and dance facilities.

The master-planned community is located minutes to what’s known as East Harbour and is set upon some 60 acres of land, including a Yorkdale-sized shopping complex, a transit hub that would integrate GO Transit train lines, a streetcar route, a possible relief subway line and 11 million square foot of office space.

Toronto’s downtown might be completely transformed by East Harbour with new streets, new transit stops, new towers and a lot of new shops and restaurants.

Invest early in this neighbourhood and watch your investment grow in the future with a lot of development planned for this end of the city.

Ice Breakers returns to Toronto's waterfront

Ice Breakers returns to Toronto’s waterfront

Latest News

Ice Breakers returns to Toronto’s waterfront

Ice Breakers will run from January 19 to February 25, 2018 with five art installations located on Queens Quay West.

A giant red bear reclining in the snow, a cozy cabin made from tree roots and a jingling wind chime constellation are just some of the installations that visitors to Toronto’s downtown Waterfront can experience this winter as the winners are announced for the second annual Ice Breakers event.

Ice Breakers, the temporary Waterfront art exhibition presented by the Waterfront BIA and produced by Winter Stations, asked artists and designers to look to the stars for inspiration for 2018, with the theme Constellation.

“After the huge success of last year’s Ice Breakers event, we decided to open the exhibition up as an international competition for 2018,” said Carol Jolly, executive director of the Waterfront BIA. “We were looking for installations that would bring colour, warmth and activity to the Waterfront, attracting visitors from across the city to experience this spectacular wintertime streetscape.”

On October 19, the Ice Breakers jury met to choose the final five art installations that will be built and featured along Queens Quay West. It was a full day of jury deliberations, where over 100 international submissions from around the world were reviewed. “We were bowled over by the high standard of entries this year, and the creative responses to the theme ‘constellation.’ We chose the winners based on their originality, feasibility and how interactive and engaging we thought they could be,” said Winter Stations co-founder Ted Merrick of Ferris + Associates.

Founded in 2015 by equal partners RAW, Ferris + Associates and Curio, Winter Stations is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing temporary public art to the city. The marquee Winter Stations Design Competition is now in its fourth year. Running along Toronto’s east end beaches, Winter Stations asks designers from around the world to transform utilitarian lifeguard stations into creative, imaginative works of publicly accessible art for six weeks of the winter. In 2017, the organization extended its programming slate with Ice Breakers produced by Winter Stations, a new event conceived on behalf of The Waterfront BIA.

Introducing the 2018 Ice Breakers installations:

“Through the Eyes of the Bear” by Tanya Goertzen of People Places (Calgary)

Inspired by Ursa Major, or the Great Bear constellation, this installation uses renewable, recyclable and compostable materials to ask visitors to consider how humans interact with nature, or to see the world through the eyes of a bear.

“Black Bamboo” by Bennet Marburger and Ji Zhang of 2408 Studio (Hangzhou Shi, China)

Black Bamboo is an installation made from 90 painted bamboo poles freely arranged to form a framework in an abstract cubic shape. Like the constellations, the cube as a shape only comes into existence within our heads. Black Bamboo is accessible and invites visitors to walk or climb through it.

“Winter FanFare” by Thena Tak (Vancouver)

Winter FanFare is a series of rotating fan-sculptures that collectively form a circulation playscape for winter exploration. Winter FanFare deploys individual fan-sculptures to create clusters of pockets where the public can meander through or run in and around.

“Ensemble” by João Araújo Sousa and Joana Correia Silva, JJs Arquitectura (Porto, Portugal)

Ensemble merges architecture, music and astronomy to explore the dialogue between humans and the urban environment. The installation is inspired by wind chimes, which visitors can touch to create beautiful abstract compositions and ever-changing soundscapes.

“Root Cabin” by Liz Wreford and Peter Sampson, Public City Architecture (Winnipeg)

Like a constellation, Root Cabin is a mystery waiting to be discovered. Coloured cuts of wood can be seen through gaps in an alluring pile of weathered roots. When further explored by a visitor, the colours reveal a void that can be inhabited, and an iconic nostalgic form of Canadian dwelling emerges.
