The St Lawrence Market area is, in my humble opinion, one of the best places in all of downtown Toronto to call home. It offers an impressive blend of history, architecture, and entertainment, and it's located steps to the TTC, Financial District, grocery stores, the Market itself, St James Park and Cathedral, etc... My first few years as a realtor were spent working primarily in this area and it continues to be one of the main areas I do business. There are a number of quality condo/loft buildings here to choose from (some of which I'll spotlight in future blog posts), but at the moment I'd like to take a look at "SPIRE".
SPIRE was developed by Context Develpoment (also responsible for Tip Top Lofts, Radio City, and MOZO, among others) and designed by Architects Alliance. Completed in 2007 and sitting at the corner of Church and Adelaide, the municipal address is 33 Lombard Street. The building has 45 floors and the suites are characterised by floor-to-ceiling windows and open layouts. The majority of suites have balconies and 9 foot ceilings.
SPIRE is without a doubt one of the more highly sought after buildings in the area and as such suites generally sell for top dollar compared to some of the older buildings in the area.
The building amenities include 24 hr concierge, exercise room, rooftop terrace/garden (located on the 5th floor podium rooftop), party/meeting room, and visitor parking. I've included photos of some of the common elements below.
If you own a suite at SPIRE and are thinking of selling, feel free to contact me for an evaluation of your property or for more info on my listing services.
