Ideally located between downtown Toronto and the city’s western suburbs, 859 West Condos is a brand new 14-storey residence by First Avenue Properties and Latch Developments coming soon to the heart of The Queensway between Royal York Road and Islington Avenue. The much anticipated condominium marks the second partnership between First Avenue and Latch Developments after having successfully sold out at The Bennett on Bayview in North York.

Situated just north of the Gardiner Expressway along a vibrant stretch of The Queensway, 859 West Condos is the latest development in a neighbourhood currently experiencing an urban renaissance.

“The Queensway is really an area that’s changing with exciting new residential developments, boutique shops and local restaurants,” says Marc Nufrio, Founder of Latch Developments. “We’ve partnered with a really high level design team to deliver a sophisticated, design-forward community that brings the downtown feel to The Queensway.”

Envisioned by award-winning architecture firm, Teeple Architects, 859 West Condos boasts a sleek and modern profile with a chic Queen West vibe. The building consists of a series of stacked volumes that create spacious balconies and terraces on various levels. Its exterior facade is characterized by white cladding with clean horizontal lines, vision and spandrel glass panels and integrated glass balconies.

The building’s contemporary aesthetic is echoed inside where the Johnson Chou-designed suites feature large open-concept layouts with the latest features and on-trend finishes. Designed to suit all types of homebuyers, available units include a mix of one bedroom, one bedroom plus den and family-sized two- and three- bedroom floorplans. Each home offers expansive living spaces with nine foot ceilings that are perfect for entertaining while gourmet kitchens are both stylish and functional.


Amenities include a state-of-the-art gym with yoga room, an open concept party room and lounge, private dining area and wifi cafe. There’s also plenty of outdoor space on the second floor south-facing terrace that comes complete with barbecues outfitted with their own private dining and seating areas.

Although residents will enjoy a wealth of onsite amenities, they’ll also be steps away from a wide array of local attractions. From larger household name retailers and local shops and cafes to a fine selection of local fare, the area offers everything you need and more. Nearby parks include Queensland Park, Queensway Park and Ourland Park. Plus, most of these amenities are easily accessible as the project achieves a “Very Walkable” WalkScore of 85.

However, those who do need to venture a little further out will appreciate the neighbourhood’s proximity to public transit and major thoroughfares that make commuting a breeze. For example, should you want to indulge in a little retail therapy, Sherway Gardens is a quick six-minute drive along the Gardiner and offers close to 1.2 million square feet of retail space.

The area is closely linked to nearby Roncesvalles hot spots and trendy Queen West. A short 10 minute commute east of The Queensway brings residents to a thriving arts and culture scene complete with plenty of Toronto’s finest galleries and boutique hotels.
