Though most condo ads feature young couples ready to make the leap into home ownership, Garrison Point is keen to court another segment of homeowners often shut out of the high-rise life.

Yes, it’s possible to raise a family close to Toronto’s core. DiamondcorpCityzen Development Group and Fernbrook Homes have teamed up to bring a kid-friendly condo community to 30 Ordnance St., close to King West, Liberty Village and the waterfront too.

Garrison Point will feature a variety of suites including a number of multi-bedroom floorplans. Smaller families will enjoy the expansive 2.5 bedroom plans in the condo towers while the townhomes come with up to 3.5 bedrooms.

There are six parks and parkettes surrounding the 516-unit project, from the lakefront Coronation Park to Liberty Village Park, which comes equipped with a children’s playground and public art.

The on-site amenities will also focus on family fun thanks to the new 4.5-acre park, outdoor pool and splash pad. Just how rare are the perks at Garrison Point? How many new constructions can you think of that have a kids’ room for playing or just hanging out?

It also houses an alternative school, adult ESL day programs, a YMCA child care program and a Parenting and Family Literacy Centre.
