The kind of view you expect when you’re on your way up!Send This Listing To A Friend
If you’ve been waiting for your first condo – the one that reflects how far you’ve come so far – you’re in luck. This one-bedroom condo on the 22nd floor in East Downtown is the perfect space for someone on their way up.
The first thing you’ll notice when you step inside is the light. With a clean, white aesthetic, 10 ft. ceilings and east-facing, nearly floor-to-ceiling windows with roller shades, this space is as bright as it gets. Warm laminate floors reflect the glow. And, there’s even a window that opens, separate from the sliding doors that take you to the balcony.
The Balcony – this might be one of those situations where you buy because the balcony is Just. So. Good. East-facing with south Lake Views, you have room to sit and have coffee as the sun comes up over the city and enjoy a drink at the end of the day, watching the light wane over the lake, and catch the reflection of the sunset in the Globe And Mail building.
If you can tear yourself away, the kitchen area is well-appointed with Quartz counters, stainless steel appliances and a faced refrigerator. There’s space to add an island and enough storage to make any foodie feel at home.
The bedroom has an actual door – no sliding ‘features’ here – which makes it quiet and private, ideal if you’re the type of person who needs to carve out a workstation in a different room from the distractions of your main space. And, the roomy closet has built-in organizers. The bath also has Quartz counters and a deep soaker tub. The unit has a bike locker included.
One of the first condo buildings in its area, Axiom condos, is part of the eastern downtown revitalization between the core and Riverside, along with businesses like the Globe and Mail, SAS Coca-Cola.
More luxe than the CityPlace starter condo buildings, this building has a depth and breadth of amenities you’ll actually use. They include two south-facing rooftop patios with lake views, sunrise, sunset views, and the CN Tower’s views. You’ll also enjoy the gym, sauna, guest suites, media room/theatre, billiards/games room, BBQ area and pet washing/grooming facilities.

About Moss Park
The Moss Park neighbourhood is transforming fast. Back in the day, this section of the east side was a bit down and out, but today, it’s booming. A lucky few will get to be a part of this incredible growth. The rest will have to bike over to wait in line for brunch on weekends.
You don’t have to go far to see what’s happening: Corktown, the Canary District and Distillery District to the East, Regent Park revitalization to the north, and over the bridge to the east Riverside, with the Broadview Hotel is redefining life on the East side. In all directions, innovative new buildings replace parking lots and empty lots, and old warehouses have become artsy living spaces and breweries.
There is transit running 24 hours a day, and you can walk to St. Lawrence Market in 10 min, the Eaton Centre in 15, and Riverside in 20. Hop on your bike, and you’re just about everywhere you want to be in no time at all.
