Builder gives new meaning to Downtown Living with Musee and Theatre District
Synonymous with work and play, Toronto’s downtown Theatre and Fashion Districts are evolving to become more attractive for those wanting to live close to work.
PLAZA, one of the largest condominium developers in downtown Toronto, has consistently recognized the value and potential in investing in the King West area.
“PLAZA is committed to acquiring Triple A sites and developing within those areas,” says Scott McLellan, senior vice president at PLAZA. “We were ahead of the game in areas no one considered and created liveable communities there.” These notable developments include West Harbour City in the Fort York neighbourhood and The Tower at King West and King West Life, which are both in Liberty Village.
“At one time people scratched their heads with Liberty Village, but we created a community with a new face and feel,” says McLellan. And now PLAZA is setting its sights on Adelaide Street West with Musee and the recently announced Theatre District.
Under construction at Bathurst Street and Adelaide Street West is Musee, a 17-storey mixed-use condominium comprised of retail, townhomes and residential suites. Musee is a short walk from King Street West with its upscale restaurants and hip bars. Nearby Queen Street West offers trend-setting shops and live music venues. Leading hospitals and universities are close by, including Toronto General and Western Hospitals and University of Toronto, respectively. The TTC is right outside the front door of Musee with the Bathurst streetcar and the University subway line within walking distance. The location also offers quick access to the Gardiner Expressway and Billy Bishop Airport.
Designed by renowned Quadrangle Architects, Musee’s modern and expressionist design will feature traditional brick frontage on the lower floors that blend seamlessly with neighbouring historical buildings. Distinguished interior design firm Bryon Patton and Associates will bring a modern, fresh design.
Amenities include a fitness centre, party room, yoga room, outdoor swimming pool, guest suites, theatre, meeting room and more. A pedestrian galleria will showcase rotating art exhibits and an 8,000-square-foot parkette enhanced by sculptural installations. Available suites include one-bedroom plus den with two bathrooms from $326,900, to three-bedroom suites over $600,000.
PLAZA’s Theatre District condominiums will not only offer glittering excitement from the heart of downtown Toronto’s Entertainment District, but appealing city conveniences and amenities. Located at Adelaide Street West and Widmer Street just west of John Street, residents of Theatre District will be in the hub of the city’s best culture and entertainment offerings with top restaurants and exceptional live theatre. Outside the front door is the Princess of Wales Theatre, Royal Alexandra Theatre, Roy Thomson Hall and the TIFF Bell Lightbox, which is the official headquarters for the Toronto International Film Festival.
The King and Queen Street West streetcars are steps away and it’s a quick stroll to the Osgoode or St. Andrew subway stations on the University subway line. Spend some cash at Queen Street West’s trendy shops, King Street West’s gourmet restaurants or head to the nearby Eaton Centre for a shopping overload. The University of Toronto campus is also close by. Theatre District will also include 3,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor.
Designed by Quadrangle Architects with interior design by Bryon Patton and Associates, Theatre District will be a 50-storey condominium with 475 suites, including one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two-bedroom and three-bedroom designs. Sizes range from 458 to 1,188 square feet. Amenities will include a five-star exercise room with the latest equipment and a party room, among others. There will be a sky lobby to host chic dinner and cocktails parties on the 10th floor.
