Location, location, location is what you'll be thinking to yourself when you see Ivy Condos -- a development underway in the heart of Toronto's Garden District.

Located on Mutual Street, nestled between Dundas Street East and Shuter Street, the 32-storey project from Dream is set to bring 256 condo units to the neighbourhood, which is currently undergoing a major revitalization that includes several new projects and developments in the works.

Surrounded by major educational institutions, including Ryerson and George Brown (OCAD and U of T are also just a short jaunt away), Ivy Condos will be ideal for both students and faculty to call home. Plus, thanks to its central location, the building is a quick walk to public transit, music and theatre venues, parks, and all the shops and restaurants you can think of.

Indeed, just steps from the building are countless eateries: Ramen Santouka, Fran’s Diner, Fusaro's, and Carbon Bar are only the beginning. Shops are abundant, too, as the nearby CF Toronto Eaton Centre offers as many spots to splurge as your wallet can handle.

The famed St. Lawrence Market is just down the road for your gourmet-grocery convenience, while nearby Metro, Loblaws, Farm Boy, and Rabba are also waiting to fill your cart with all the essentials.

And staying entertained will surely be a breeze, as Allan Gardens, Massey Hall, Ed Mirvish Theatre, Elgin Winter Garden Theatre, and Yonge-Dundas Square (to name a few) are all within walking distance.

It's true, at Ivy Condos, residents will quite literally be able to plant themselves in the heart of the city, which means they can live green, too, and walk, cycle or take public transit anywhere they need to go.

Designed by RAW Design, the 200,000 square foot point tower will rise above a four-storey podium, with residences located above.

As for the building, it's been purposefully designed to capture the beauty of nature with organic elements complemented by contemporary design, including a mix of textures, patterns, and shapes.

A significant draw for residents is that they'll get to enjoy expansive and panoramic views of downtown and beyond from the comfort of their private sanctuary.

Residents can expect contemporary finishes in the suites, including premium plank laminate flooring in entries, kitchens, bedrooms, living areas, and exposed concrete ceilings in principal rooms. Other interior highlights include modern four-inch, painted baseboards with matching door trim, contemporary-style doors with designer hardware, and an in-suite front loading stacked washer-dryers.

Residents can also sleep at ease knowing that their suite has a deadbolt and security viewer. At the same time, improved indoor air quality with in-suite controlled air conditioning and heating and a recovery ventilation system adds further year-round comfort.

Suite kitchens will be a home chef's dream. Finishes include custom-designed modern European-style cabinetry with soft-close motion on drawers and doors, premium quartz countertops and tile backsplashes, designer overhead track lighting, and European-style appliances that consist of a slide-in range, over the range stainless steel microwave, and fully integrated refrigerator and dishwasher with panelled doors to match kitchen cabinetry.

The sleek finishes continue in the bathroom, where you'll find a European style vanity with quartz countertop, a contemporary light fixture and vanity mirror, and either a luxurious deep soaker tub or a shower with frameless clear glass fixed panelling.

In addition to the building's prime location, the amenities are top-notch, further adding to the appeal of Ivy Condos. As soon as you step inside, you'll enter into the soaring, double-height lobby that will guide you toward the private garden library.

Head up to the fifth floor, and you'll find the indoor-outdoor Ivy lounge, where residents can entertain, connect with others, and work. Then, step out onto the terrace overlooking Mutual Street, and you'll find an unexpected oasis.

In the Ivy coworking lounge, you can work remotely or with others in a collaborative setting, while you can work up a sweat in the fitness room or yoga studio.
