In an ingenious move, the building developer turned the faces of both 12 foot clocks into windows. They’re perfect portholes for looking out over the city (one frames the CN Tower perfectly), and they add tons of visual interest to the living space.
There is a 24 hour concierge, in house property manager and staff. The kitchen and bathroom counters are made of granite and marble respectively and the kitchen has a tiled back splash. A green roof is under way and already has bar-b-que facilities. The finished roof will have eating facilities, lounging, gardening, and track.
At the crossroads of two of Toronto's historic, distinct, and VERY different neighbourhoods:
This neighbourhood as given itself a branding makeover in the last decade and is now a destination for stylish, high-end restaurants with names like Crush, Blowfish and Thuet, lounges and dance clubs including Everleigh and Hoxton and Toronto's best men's clothing stores.
West Queen West
This area is gallery central with some of the city's most cutting-edge galleries dotting the street-scape from Trinity Bellwoods Park to Dufferin. Anchored by the nightlife and cultural destinations that are The Drake and Gladstone Hotels, this neighbourhood oozes creativity, community and fun. Not to be overlooked are hidden gems like Julie's Cuban and Luna Cafe up Dovercourt or the burgeoning South Ossington strip.
Easy Access to TTC Streetcars on two Major Routes which will take you ANYWHERE in the city.
King Street Car
Bathurst Street Car
Sidney was a great host, although he was out of town during my stay he ensured I was met with a smile upon arrival and kept in constant contact.
The clocktower suite was unique and very cool, an excellent place to entertain or just unwind. Located in the heart of the Fashion District, lots of great restaurants, bars, etc.
Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
The apartment was lovely and such a unique space. The furniture in the living room has been updated (it's definitely nicer than what's pictured), as well as much of the bedroom furniture. Overall, the apartment was in good shape, clean, and had everything we needed. My family (two late-20s kids and our parents) was very comfortable in the space. There's also a gym in the building (a nice perk) and a great roof deck with awesome city views.
The location is great - we had never been to Toronto, and this was a very central location in a cool neighborhood. It was easy to get around and we could walk to most things.
Sid was very friendly and helpful, and gave us some great tips for things to do in Toronto. He's new to airbnb but did his best to make sure we were happy and comfortable. Thanks Sid!
Great stay. Beautiful place. Best location.
Host was fun, nice and very welcoming.
Had a good time sid deff knows the city well and helped us feel at home. Place was spectacular everything we expected.
