All aboard! Vacation life is calling at 600 Queens Quay WSend This Listing To A Friend
You’ll feel like you’re on holiday every day with the breathtaking Lake Ontario views and the tranquil atmosphere tucked away from the busy city. Even the building’s exterior was modelled to resemble a cruise ship with rounded balcony corners and light blue tinted glass.
Let’s talk about the space! The light hardwood floors, crisp white walls, and a spacious floorplan over 900 sq ft, make this the perfect abode for work from home couples or a young family! The split bedroom and bathroom layout gives privacy to each space, while the open-concept kitchen and living room invites all to reconnect for a delicious meal or movie night at the end of the busy work day. You’ll love cooking in the newly renovated kitchen with a farmhouse sink, sleek gray cabinets and stainless steel appliances.
It doesn’t end there. You have an extra den nook and sunroom to use at your leisure! Set up a dining room in the den and a home office in the sunroom to take advantage of all this extra storage! Alternatively, set up your yoga mat in the sunroom and truly soak in your sun salutations. This charming condo reflects inner and outer peace.
Whether it’s an evening tea or a glass of wine, there’s no better place to sip the night away than your balcony. Overlooking the water, you can enjoy the lake breeze while watching the tide come in.
About the Building
Queens Harbour’s twin buildings can be found near the intersection of Queens Quay West and Dan Leckie Way in Toronto’s Waterfront neighbourhood. The two 11-story towers have a nautical vibe, resembling an oceanic cruise ship, with their rounded exteriors of white concrete and pale blue tinted glass. The luxurious amenities at 600 Queens Quay West feature the gym, sauna, party room, and a parking garage with ample visitor parking spaces.
5 Things We Love

About Waterfront Communities
The Waterfront Communities is a lively community. It is boarded by Bathurst to the West, Queen Street to the north, Lake Ontario to the south and University Street to the east (until it runs south and loops down and around to Yonge street).
Home to the Fashion and Entertainment Districts, you’ll find upscale restaurants, nightclubs, and iconic spots like the Rogers Centre, Scotiabank Area and Tiff Bell Lightbox (aka the hub for all things Toronto International Film Festival). It’s easy to spot the CN Tower no matter where you’re located. In the mood for shopping? One of the city’s trendiest destinations — the shops along Queen West — are right at your doorstep.
Residents who are lucky enough to call this community home won’t need a car. It’s a very walkable hood and there are numerous transportation options. It’s a short walk to St. Andrew and Osgoode subway stations on the Yonge-University line. You can also travel North/South on the Bathurst or Spadina streetcars. Going East/West? Take the Queen streetcar, or even better, the King streetcar route which is now more viable since a pilot project was made permanent in 2019: road traffic was significantly decreased as cars are no longer permitted to travel through this stretch of King Street at all; they are forced to turn right at each traffic light. If you are planning a weekend road trip out of the city, use the Spadina on-ramp to get straight on the Gardiner and go where you need to go. We can’t forget the sidewalks… a main transit artery for this neighbourhood, which also makes it easy to spot the tourists. Residents are master speed walkers, racing home after a long work day, and it’s a funny contrast to the often lost “905ers,” trying to make their way down to a Blue Jays game or a show at the Royal Alexandra Theatre.
Grocery shopping options are endless. In addition to your typical Loblaws, CityMart…or high-end Fresh and Wild grocer, you’ll find almost anything you could need at Chinatown or in Kensington Market. If you prefer farm-fresh in the middle of the city – no problem! There is a farmer’s market in David Pecaut Square on Thursdays (during the warmer months), called Indulge. It often has live music too.
For those with active lifestyles, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better selection of amenities. There is something for everyone and the big international brands have even set up shop here. You can try: Barry’s Bootcamp, SpinCo, GoodLife, yoga and pilates studios, Barre classes…there is even a meditation center.
Dog owners who live here can be found at Victoria Memorial Square or Clarence Square. Fido can roam free in the latter with its designated off-leash area. There is also Canoe Landing Park (in CityPlace) — a large open greenspace with walking paths and sports fields.
