About Family Sized Loft in Leslieville – 88 Colgate Ave #120
88 Colgate Ave Unit 120
Welcome to Loft 120 at Showcase Lofts! Amazing use of reclaimed brick brings a ton of century old character into this fresh new building! Located on the ground floor offering direct, street level access with a great patio to enjoy!
This is one of the most efficient floor plans we’ve seen to date. The bedrooms are large, the living space is generous, the kitchen is incredible and the super tall 11 foot ceilings (unique to the PH and ground level units) add loads of volume to the space making it feel even larger than the already generous 852 square feet.
Local School – Morse Street PS
Located in the in-demand Morse Street Public School catchment area this unit is idea for families with school aged children (or soon to be school aged!). Many families have chosen to make 88 Colgate Ave their home over the past couple of years. The demographic here is diverse. Many young professionals, retired down-sizers and of course families! If you’re looking for a “party building” move on! This isn’t the place for you. However, if you’re looking for a nice, calm and extremely friendly place to call home, then 88 Colgate is for you.
A Little About Leslieville, Riverside & Dundas & Carlaw
Listen, we don’t need to sell you on how amazing the Riverside and Leslieville communities are. Or do we? If you’re from around here you know how Riverside has changed to literally become the “Downtown” of the East Side. The opening of the Broadview Hotel, the happening Prohibition Gastrohouse and the many amazing restaurants keep Riverside hopping till the wee hours.
Leslieville on the other hand goes to bed at around 10pm. We’ve likely got some of the best brunch spots in Toronto and killer restaurants. There are a few places that keep the party going to compete for some night time action like East Side Social, WAYLA Bar and of course Bill Hicks Bar. But what Leslieville does best is provide amazing local grocery options, deliver some of the best restaurants in Toronto and we’re pretty sure Leslieville offers the most gyms per capita in Toronto as well with Dwell, Fortis, CrossfitTO, Move, Hone all within a few short blocks of each other.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t toss some Dundas and Carlaw love into the mix. This area has positioned itself in the Leslieville community as the “IT” spot. Much of the credit goes to the community efforts spearheaded by the folks at Dundas & Carlaw Bar/Cafe with the Leslieville Beer Fest (the most successful event Leslieville has ever seen) and the opening of the Crows Theatre and Restaurant on the opposite corner. That combined with the new shops have stolen some of the Thunder away from the popular Queen Street strip. Don’t worry, Queen St, Dundas has no beef with you.
