About

Peter is a professor at Humber College and Lulu is a visual artist. We'll be on sabbatical and out of town this year so our condo is available for rent. We've lived here since the building was finished 10 years ago and we still never get tired of the views. The condo unit is on the 22nd floor and there are no other tall buildings nearby. The main living/dining room window looks directly toward the downtown cityscape. The balcony faces High Park and Lake Ontario. When conditions are right you can actually see (ok, some of us need our glasses) the plume above Niagara Falls across the lake. We can see the sun (or the moon) come up over the horizon and at sunset the city can look pretty spectacular. Fireworks? From Markham in the north, all over Toronto's many neighbourhoods, across the lake to the US and Canada, all the way west to Mississauga. The Junction is "Toronto's Coolest Neighbourhood" according to TimeOut and the "most stylish" according to the New York Times (goodness!). According to us: we love living here. https://www.timeout.com/toronto/things-to-do/junction-toronto-guide https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/01/07/travel/places-to-visit.html The condo is a short walk to a wide variety of great restaurants, pubs, cafes and boutiques. There are two organic food stores and a conventional grocery store within a 10 minute walk. The West Toronto Railpath is about a 10 minute walk. It's a 20 minute walk to High Park and about another 20 minutes to the lake. There is a Toronto Bike Share pickup/drop location across the street. Actually, we have a couple of bikes in the condo's bike lockers which we could make available. Public transit: One short block from the condo we can catch the 41 or 89 to Keele subway station (or the express versions 941 and 989 with zero stops before the subway) OR take the 40 to Dundas West Station where one can jump on the subway or connect to other bus and streetcar lines, OR take the UP Train which is one stop from Union Station downtown or two stops from Pearson Airport. Enterprise Carshare is available onsite and in the neighbourhood. During the pandemic I taught online from home so invested in a sit/stand table for the office. We have fibre high speed internet at either 50 or 500 MB/s down and up. There are two tables/workspaces in the office along with a pull-out couch. When there's no pandemic there is free access to a small gym and you can rent the party room. You can book a BBQ on the 4th floor terrace. We have a washing machine in the condo and usually hang the clothes to dry. But there is a coin-operated dryer on the third floor of the building. The condo has remarkable sound isolation between units and our neighbours are quiet. Management of the building is excellent. It's a friendly, unpretentious building with owners who are family and community oriented.
