The demand for housing in Downtown Toronto remains high, and much of that need is being met by the high-rise towers we see populating areas like the Entertainment District and CityPlace. High-rises offer plenty of advantages depending upon the type of lifestyle you seek, but they are not for everyone. Lots of people would still rather be closer to the ground, whether you are part of the downsizing empty-nester market and used to having trees outside your windows, or young professionals who would prefer to live on a quiet, tree-lined street as a bit of a getaway from the daily hustle and bustle. This is exactly what is being offered at 90 Niagara, a 5-storey boutique condominium by Fieldgate Homes coming to a quiet stretch of Niagara Street west of Bathurst.

Designed by Giannone Petricone Associates, the development will contain 45 condominium units, ranging in size from 560 square feet to over 1,200 square feet, and starting from the mid $300,000s. Residents of the building will have the convenience of being within walking distance of the higher pace of life found in the Financial District, the Entertainment District and the King West and Queen West restaurant and shopping strips, while still enjoying the peace and quiet typical of a residential side street. With several bay-and-gable style houses as well as the heritage brick warehouses across the street from the 90 Niagara site, Niagara Street is rich in historic architecture and scenery.

Unlike a large condominium tower, 90 Niagara's amenity spaces will be limited to a party room and an outdoor terrace, allowing for much lower maintenance fees than one would face with a high-rise condo unit. The real amenity at 90 Niagara is the neighbourhood, which offers bustling streets with a selection of shops, restaurants, cafes and theatres a few short blocks away to the north and east. The waterfront with all of its parkland, trails, and fun spaces is only a short distance to the south too.
