Over the past few years, the St. Lawrence Market and King Street East area of Toronto has established itself as an up and coming neighbourhood for exciting condominium projects. Some of the buildings in the area include London on The Esplanade, East Lofts and Kings Court. Soaring above the others is Spire, a 45-storey glass tower that houses over 200 suites.
Located at 33 Lombard Street, right across from the St. James Cathedral, Spire is one of the tallest residential buildings in the city. Every suite has a balcony with breathtaking views of downtown Toronto. The suites facing south will be able to see all the way out to the Toronto Islands.
The suites in Spire also boast 9” smooth plaster ceilings, stone countertops, solar blinds, hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances. There is a wide mix of suites available from 353 sq. ft. studios to 2532 sq. ft. penthouses. Amenities at Spire include a fitness centre with change rooms and steam rooms, a landscaped rooftop garden on the 5th floor, guest suites and a multi-purpose party room. Conveniently, there’s also a dry cleaner shop on the ground floor.
There were many reasons for including Spire on this site but the reputation of its developer, Context is undoubtedly a contributing factor. Founded in 1997, the Toronto-based company specializes in “Modernist, minimalist, concrete-and-glass condos.” They have won multiple awards for their achievements in architecture and design including the Urban Design Award of Excellence in 2009 for Spire.
