When you’re looking for an apartment to rent, the ideal space will check more than a few of the boxes on your wishlist. While everyone has their own needs and preferences, most can agree on a few key must-haves. At the top of the list? Location, of course, but other criteria follow close behind: affordability, transit, walkability, proximity to amenities. Here we’ve rounded up some of the top reasons to live at Rose Park in Toronto.
The Residences of Rose Park at 99 Howard Street include three high-rise rental buildings in a great downtown location. Living here is ideal for getting around the city, with the TTC at your door. You’re just minutes away from the Bloor Subway line and a short walk to both Sherbourne and Castle Frank subway stations. You’re also just west of the Don Valley Parkway, which links to the Gardiner Expressway further south. The area is also great for those who like to get around by bike.
Rose Park offers large units and there is a mix of layouts for you to choose from. Depending on your needs, you might consider a bachelor apartment, a one-bedroom (junior, medium, or large), or a two-bedroom. Each of the units has a balcony and large windows, with fantastic views of the city. There is also hardwood and ceramic flooring throughout. Newly renovated apartment suites are available.
Close To A Number Of Community Hotspots
Finding a place to live is one thing, finding a neighbourhood is another. At Rose Park in Toronto, you are surrounded by the kinds of institutions that build and sustain communities. There are schools (Rose Avenue Junior Public School and Rose Avenue Child Care Centre), the Parliament Street and St. James Town branches of the Toronto Public Library, and Wellesley Community Centre located nearby. The annual Cabbagetown Festival is something to look forward to, held every Fall. Everything you might need can be found within just a few blocks.
Convenient Shopping Nearby
You won’t have to go far to buy what you need. Stock up on groceries at No Frills or FreshCo; there’s also a tuck shop on site should you run out of anything. Because you’re downtown there is no shortage of convenience stores, pharmacies, and produce markets available. Of course you’re very close to some of the city’s biggest shopping districts too, in Yorkville and along Bloor Street.
Connection To The Outdoors
When you live in a city, it’s nice if your living space can offer some connection to the outdoors. At Rose Park in Toronto, every suite has a balcony (some are south-facing), large windows, and impressive views. The grounds are manicured, with trees and beds full of flowers. It’s the best of both worlds: all the amenities and conveniences of city living, with a bit of nature to enjoy as well.
There’s so much to take advantage of in this pocket of the city. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to follow the Medallion blog for more tips on how to find your next home.
