This week we saw the launch of Freed’s new Thompson Residence [map], and we saw the re-emergence of the condo lineup.

But, I do not think that this was one of the old-fashion lineups of two years ago, which were filled with over-hype and broker-pushing. Nope. I think this was a true line up, created by excellent pricing, unique amenities, contemporary but different architecture and a location in a cool part of town.

Check out what The Toronto Star has to say about this condo:

“Thompson Residences buyers will be able to access all hotel services on a pay-per-use basis across the street at the Toronto Thompson, a chic luxury brand hotel adjoined to 336 condos, slated to open at 550 Wellington Street West in May. The hotel was developed by Freed in partnership with hotelier Tony Cohen. It will epitomize the urbane developer’s vision for a sophisticated project that combines food, music, design and service with three restaurants and a “destination” lobby bar.

The 314-unit Thompson Residences will rise on the site of a former Travelodge in two 12-storey buildings. Because they can pick and choose their hotel services and pay on demand, condo fees aren’t impacted. As well as the room service, the perks include housekeeping, laundry and dry-cleaning services, access to personal trainers, private car service, pet services, grocery delivery, and a screening room. Freed also expects owners will become regular patrons of the hotel’s lobby bar, restaurants and rooftop infinity pool bar.”

Pretty awesome.
