If you’ve been thinking about moving to or investing in Toronto’s fast-growing east side, Poet Condos offers an excellent opportunity. Estimates project that suites will start in the high $500,000s, marking an attainable price point perfect for first-time homebuyers. The developers expect this project to be ready for occupancy by Fall 2021.
Poet Condos: Project Overview
This boutique condo community will be situated at 1285 Queen Street East, near the intersection of Queen Street and Leslie Street in the heart of Toronto’s hip Leslieville neighbourhood. The proposed six-storey mid-rise building will house an exclusive selection of 69 suites, broken down into the following floorplan mix:
- 15 one-bedroom units
- 23 one-bedroom plus den units
- 10 two-bedroom units
- 7 two-bedroom plus den units
- 5 three-bedroom units
- 3 Towns and 6 PentHouse
The mixed-use property will also include a generous 8,200 square feet (762 square metres) of street-level retail space, which will be divided into two sections. Its first floor will also house the community’s five beautifully designed two-storey townhome suites, which residents will access via dedicated private entryways that front onto the site’s peaceful and quiet south side.
Residents will also enjoy a stunning selection of on-site amenities, luxuries, and conveniences. Confirmed details include:
- A rooftop lounge and entertainment area spanning 3,000 square feet (279 square metres)
- A secure underground parking garage with capacity for up to 41 vehicles and 65 bicycles
- Generously sized private terraces along the building’s stepped-back upper floors
- A welcoming and modern ground-floor lobby
This development features effortlessly stylish and modern design consisting of a pre-cast concrete shell finished in rich, warm wood tones. The project will seamlessly integrate into Leslieville’s existing streetscape, and add much-needed high-density residential space to this fast-growing corner of the city.
Condominiums are relatively rare in Leslieville, compared to other parts of the city, and newly built suites are particularly difficult to come by. These market factors bode well for the future value of the developments suites.
Make to Move to Leslieville
Leslieville is one of Toronto’s most unique neighbourhoods, and it is currently undergoing a dramatic renaissance as the city’s east side continues to draw growing
numbers of new residents. Informally known as Toronto’s “Film District” thanks to the many studios and motion picture production businesses in the area, Leslieville is also well-known for its strongly independent flavour. One-of-a-kind boutiques, trendy bars and restaurants, and eclectic vintage shops make it a vibrant, culturally rich area with a hip and youthful flavour.
With an excellent Walk Score of 93/100, you won’t need a car to take care of the vast majority of your day-to-day shopping and lifestyle needs. Leslieville scores particularly well for its dining and drinking, shopping, parks, schools, and entertainment options.
The future Poet Condos site also features an excellent Transit Score of 86/100, with 24-hour streetcar service along Queen Street and multiple bus line links to the TTC subway system. Using the Queen streetcars, transit riders can reach the city’s downtown core in about 20 minutes. The closest subway stations are Donlands and Greenwood, both of which are on Line 2 (Bloor-Danforth). They are about 2.5 kilometres from 1285 Queen Street East, which puts them within walking distance.
Notably, Leslieville is one of only a few areas in Toronto that has a perfect Bike Score of 100/100. It features a flat slope profile, well-developed cycling infrastructure, and a network of dedicated bike lanes. Drivers can easily access the nearby GardinerExpressway, which connects with the Don Valley Parkway, the QEW, the 427, and the
