The Spire condo at the corner of Church and Adelaide is a fantastic place. Rich with amenities, it retains an air of modesty (dare I say class) that is sometimes lacking in downtown Toronto condominiums. In a town thick with condo towers, The Spire managed to impress one local critic. He describes it in the most appropriate terms.
This unit is high enough to offer a truly impressive view of the city (and to make me just a bit weak in the knees…). While there seems to be an almost-obsessive urge among condo buyers to seek out the south-facing condo, the north view is stunning and dynamic – especially at night. From The Spire one gets a really neat view straight up Church St all the way to distant Bloor St. Most local buildings don’t challenge The Spire’s height, so one can enjoy gazing eastwards towards Leslieville and the Beach, or west towards downtown for a different kind of impressive sight.
Gorgeous St James Cathedral and park are just across the street. The St Lawrence Market is a short walk south, as is the St Lawrence Centre for the Arts. Union Station and the Eaton’s Centre are also within walking distance, and TTC options abound. I used to work just a block away, so I can also assure you that there are plenty of pubs, restaurants (and shops) all nearby as well 😉
A junior one bedroom with a full-sized balcony, the unit features wood floors, stainless steel appliances, floor-to-ceiling windows, a full 4-piece bath with a soaker tub, his-and-hers closets and Ensuite laundry. It’s perfect for the urban first-time buyer (or someone looking for a pied-a-terre…).
**UPDATE** The Toronto condo market isn’t as gloomy as some folks think. We received two offers on this great little unit. Pricing and presentation are super important – always. Call me if you need help!
