City-lovers looking for that perfect neighbourhood to call home will appreciate Ten93 Queen West. Pemberton Group’s newest condo community is situated at the epicentre of the dynamic West Queen West neighbourhood.
TTC will be at its doorstep, so residents will have easy access to the downtown core, plus popular local hangouts such as Trinity Bellwoods Park, and event venues like The Great Hall and Gladstone Hotel.
Queen West is a Toronto destination known for renowned its theatre, music, art galleries, and boutiques, plus some of the hottest nightlife, restaurants and bars in the city. Another huge perk for those who will call Ten93 Queen West home, is how easy it is to explore your own creative side through a host of events, workshops and fun activities.
Here are some upcoming best bets:
It’s hard to keep track of all the activities in the Gladstone’s calendar. One of the most popular is the weekly life drawing class. Every Wednesday evening, Walt Rushton hosts what has become the longest running life drawing class in the city. If fashion events are more your style, it’s worth checking out the Toronto Indie Arts Market’s Spring Fashion Extravaganza there this weekend. It runs March 15th and 16th from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Queen West Art Crawl
This outdoor spectacle has been inspiring art-lovers for 11 years. Every September, Trinity Bellwoods comes alive with a two-day art show and sale featuring a juried art exhibition with over 250 artists, food vendors, community booths and an entertainment stage too.
Looking to get creative in the kitchen? The West End Food Co-op often hosts culinary classes for those seeking to explore the cuisine of other cultures. Plus, the co-op is a hub for local food culture if you’re hoping to stock up on farm-fresh ingredients.
Learn to sew or cross-stitch
Whether you’re hoping to sew your own clothing designs or learn to cross-stitch, The Work Room at Dufferin and Queen not only features regular classes, but doubles as a fabric store too. There are plenty of options to choose from, including beginner, intermediate and advanced level workshops for everything from quilting to making your own tote bags.
The Drake Hotel
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the other boutique hotel and creative magnet on Queen Street. If you’re interested in learning more about the local arts scene, the hotel runs a weekly gallery tour, aimed at aficionados and novices alike. If using your mental stash of movie, music and cultural factoids is more up your alley, the Drake’s Trivia Night is one of the best in the city.
Ten93 Queen West will reflect the creative spirit of the neighbourhood thanks to the cutting-edge architecture of the boutique building. While fully contemporary in appearance, the structure will stay in step with its Victorian neighbours as it will be a mid-rise condo community.
The building is comprised of 134 suites. Interiors, while uber modern, reflect the artistic heritage of the area. The dramatic lobby is trend-setting, and the party room will rival the stylishness of the local restaurants and bars.
The suites themselves have been designed with smart layouts and a long list of high-quality features and finishes. Enjoy quartz countertops and custom-style cabinetry with champagne-bronze fixtures in the kitchens. Bathrooms will also be equipped with custom-style vanities and champagne-bronze fixtures, and a soaker tub, and frameless glass shower (where applicable).
Suites start from the $280,000s.
