Just because you live in the concrete jungle, doesn’t mean you can’t be close to nature. Toronto is lucky to have a shoreline stretching from Scarborough out west to Etobicoke, a popular destination for boardwalks, beachside activities and some of the city’s most sought-after developments. If you’re looking for a new construction condo with views of the water, these Toronto projects set to be move-in ready by 2021 might be what you’re looking for.
