The condominium lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to give up access to greenspace. Today, many new developments springing up across the city are incorporating lush rooftop terraces and patios, creating an urban oasis that’s accessible from home.
Here’s a handful of currently selling new construction condos in Toronto that offer rooftop terraces:
1. Fleur Condos
Located east of Church and Shuter streets, Fleur Condos will top out at 29 storeys and house 320 residential suites. Aside from the landscaped outdoor terrace with a fit pit and barbeque area, this condo community will host a variety of lifestyle amenities, including a kids room, gym and media room.
Future residents will be within walking distance to Ryerson University, Yonge-Dundas Square and the Eaton Centre, plus a range of downtown restaurants, retailers and entertainment options.
When construction wraps up in the summer of 2024, this 428-unit condo tower will reach 41 storeys. On the second floor, the outdoor lounging terrace shares the level with a fitness centre, pet space, and indoor pool with a hot tub. The roof garden, located on the fifth floor, provides barbeque stations next to a reflective pavilion with a sunken fire pit.
31 Condominiums’ location in the Distillery District is steps to historic buildings, art galleries, restaurants and Parliament Square Park.
3. 123 Portland
Featuring design by U31, the residences at 123 Portland offer rich, inviting interiors. Stone countertops and tile backsplashes in the kitchens are paired with Miele appliances. Glass French doors in the living rooms and master bedrooms provide a dose of natural light, paired with hardwood floors.
At the top of this 14-storey building awaits the rooftop lounge, which caters 360-degree views of the Toronto skyline. Grills and dining tables offer a sky-high setting to enjoy an outdoor meal, while cabanas and fireplaces create a serene spot to gather with friends and family.
When complete, Tridel at the Well will host a combination of retail, dining, residential and office space, alongside publicly accessible outdoor areas.
This future master-planned community will be steps away from the city’s Entertainment District, Fort York and King Street West. Residents can walk to a myriad of greenspaces, restaurants and conveniences, including the TTC Spadina streetcar route and the Toronto waterfront community.
Due to break ground at Parliament and Shuter streets this September, Warehouse Lofts will deliver 29 new units to the Trefann Court community. This future mid-rise will combine living and workspace, with the five uppermost floors dedicated to live-work lofts on top of retail and open-concept commercial space.
Ranging from 961 to 1,674 square feet, these residences boast all of the industrial loft fixings including large windows, 10-foot ceilings and custom-designed sliding doors.
Having broken ground in June, River & Fifth Condos has started work on this future 37-storey tower in Corktown.

In this building, you can also spend your time working up a sweat in the kitted-out fitness centre, or lounging in the private movie theatre room.
Rising 13 storeys in the city’s Fashion District, WaterWorks Toronto will tout a variety of at-home amenities. Future residents can dine and relax on the rooftop terrace, workout in the crossfit studio, or browse the library/lobby with a 24/7 concierge service.
