Toronto’s very first micro-condo is making a big impact on the city’s real estate scene. It’s not just Smart House’s 289-square foot suites that are turning heads, but the project’s completely new take on urban lifestyle.

With a downtown address, it’s easy to edit out a lot of those expensive extras. There’s no need for a car when you live steps from University subway line, plus the Queen and King streetcar lines and in a part of the city with a perfect 100 walk score.

And you don’t have to give up on at-home entertaining or your morning exercise routine when you live in more compact living quarters. Smart House, an undertaking by Urban Capital and Malibu Investments, is designed with residents’ needs in mind.

You can still stretch out your yoga mat in the building’s fitness facility or even lift some weights. For those of us who love to throw dinner parties, there’s a show kitchen where you can comfortably exercise you inner gourmand. There’s also an expansive terrace with plenty of cozy seating – grab a book and read outside or just enjoy the city views. Plus the condo is also equipped with two lounge areas for unwinding and schmoozing.

Smart House proves that you don’t need an enormous floorplan to get the most out of city life. Each of the units in the 25-storey structure will be built with functionality in mind, meaning there’s no wasted space and there’s plenty of well-thought-out storage solutions. We unpacked some of the clever designs before and it’s well worth seeing the sales centre at 17 Nelson Street to see how it all fits together.
