Life and the City

Coming Soon to Leaside...

Upper East Village is a new master-planned community that offers the advantages of city living, with the spirit and comforts of a real neighbourhood.

About Upper East Village

Slated to be built at the corner of Eglinton Avenue East and Brentcliffe Road in Leaside, Upper East Village is an extremely anticipated master-planned community development which will present a unique opportunity to realize the full potential of Midtown Toronto’s newest and most exciting area of growth. The project is set to become the next landmark neighbourhood in the GTA, complete with spacious suites, meticulous design and world class amenities.

Upper East Village will feature a curated collection of spacious condominium residences, refined townhomes, ground-level retail and office space, nestled in three thoughtfully-designed towers set within a distinctive enclave of lush green spaces, inspired amenities and contemporary convinces. The project will architecturally pay homage to the area's historic charm, classic character and inspired features, and seamlessly integrate into the unique fabric that makes Leaside one of Toronto's most coveted and top-rated neighbourhoods. The classic red brick exteriors on its podiums will evoke the age of red brick Victorian structures that used to populate the city, while the juxtaposing towers with large balconies bring a cohesive sense of modernity to the whole development.

Located just steps from an array of parks and trails (including a new public park that will be set on more than four acres!), and Leaside's charming shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants, this project also takes advantage of the upcoming Eglinton Crosstown LRT, set to be operational in 2021, which will feature its Laird Station stop just steps from the building.

Upper East Village residents will enjoy the convenience of a 60% faster transit/subway commute time, as well as an array of lifestyle amenities, including fitness auditorium, indoor swimming pool, steam room, games room, board room, party room, dining room, outdoor entertainment area with BBQs, concierge service, pet-friendly areas, pedestrian friendly promenades, and more! Whether you’re looking for an ideal investment property or want to set down roots in a growing Midtown pocket, this project is a great option.

Location & Neighbourhood

The Leaside neighbourhood has so much to offer. The area is bordered on one side by the 150-acre Sunnybrook Park and Midtown’s most connected and cosmopolitan intersections on the other, so regardless of your living style, there’s always something to entertain, energize or inspire you.

Plentiful retail and dining options line this stretch of Eglinton Avenue and some of the area’s major streets - including Bayview Avenue and Mount Pleasant Road - boast a quaint, small-town feel. Despite this, you’re just minutes from a sleek and growing intersection, where contemporary towers and a multi-million-dollar retail redevelopment rival some of downtown’s hottest pockets. Here you’ll also find rapid transit access in all four directions, which is almost unprecedented in the city.

Over at Yonge and Eglinton there’s been extraordinary growth, but this is largely the first wave of modernization in this particular stretch, making it a great opportunity for investors. Living close to the upcoming Laird Station, which will serve the Eglinton Crosstown LRT when it’s up and running in 2021, is another major benefit, allowing you to seamlessly connect with the city’s transit system, no matter where your destination is.

Need a break from city life? Sunnybrook Park, a sprawling greenspace that spans almost 150 acres and features tree canopies, hiking and dog-walking trails, even a horseback riding stable, is just a quick walk to the east.

With rapid transit access, recreation opportunities and urban amenities at your fingertips, this is a great Leaside location to call home.

Parks and places to play:

  • Leaside Memorial Community Gardens features an indoor swimming pool, two ice rinks, curling rink, large auditorium and much more.
  • Serena Gundy Park is located in the north-east corner of Leaside and is an amazing destination for picnicking and hiking in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter.
  • Trace Manes Park is located in south Leaside and is home to the Leaside Tennis Club. Six tennis courts are available for practicing and matches. This park also features a playground, baseball diamond, and an outdoor ice-rink in the winter.
