It's remarkable how quickly Toronto's Central Waterfront is changing. A decade ago, the area east of Yonge felt desolate; today with the first buildings opening, it feels like an up-and-coming place to move to. Downtown is a short walk or bus ride away, parks like Sugar Beach and Sherbourne Common have popped up, the maple trees of the Water's Edge Promenade have grown in beautifully—and they look particularly great decked out in their autumn colours right now.

Office buildings are already in the area, are opening up, are just now going up, and wth more planned, your work might be even closer than the core. George Brown College is expanding here. Ground level retailers have begun to open, with many more on the way in the coming years—the new flagship LCBO store is on its way here too—plus you can already dine on a patio here facing the lake. It all means that the race to find a place in the neighbourhood is on.

Amidst all the nearby development, Sugar Wharf by Menkes Developments is positioning itself as a place for more than just young professionals. With 30% of its suites available in two or three bedroom layouts, there is room for families here, and they are not being forgotten when it comes to the impressive collection of amenities designed by Cecconi Simone either.

There will be lots of places for adults and teens to relax of course, with an art and hobby studio, a music room, a virtual reality room, even a hammock lounge, and many more facilities… but kids get rooms just for them that they will love, including the arts and crafts playroom and party rooms pictured above and below.
