Toronto condos are hot. These new condo developments will make them even hotter.

Earlier this year, builders broke ground for condo units in Toronto at a faster rate than they had in a nearly half a century.

According to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, contractors began work throughout Toronto’s census metro area on more apartments in 2018’s first quarter than they had in more than 40 years.

As Toronto’s construction boom rages on, we’ve highlighted the new local residential condo developments that we’re most excited about for this year.

The last phase of the burgeoning Bayside community on Toronto’s waterfront is the 16-storey Aqualuna. It includes 225 suites varying broadly in size, from 821 square feet all the way to 4,622 square feet. 

This tower is the vision of Danish architects 3XN. They were selected as the designers through an international competition. 

Also, the development is part of more than two million square feet of mixed-use development at Bayside.

Buyers at the Residences of Upper East Village have a choice between upscale townhomes and condos in leafy Leaside, right off the forthcoming Crosstown LRT route. These residences, which span 590 square feet to more than 1,300 square feet, will be located at 939 Eglinton Ave. E.

By the time Sugar Wharf is complete, its 11.5 acres of waterfront land should be unrecognizable compared to what it is today. Namely, it’ll be a lot denser.

With its multi-phase project, Menkes is poised to bring five condo towers (including one planned to reach 90 storeys), a mid-rise rental building, office tower, park, and more to the LCBO Lands on Queens Quay East.

As the name suggests, it's located a short stroll from Bronte Harbour.
