About The Poet Condos

A stylish new development will soon be arriving in one of the city's most iconic neighbourhoods! The Poet Condos is a mid-rise, mixed-use boutique condo complex slated to be built at the corner of Queen Street East & Leslie Street in scenic, vibrant Leslieville.

Boasting effortlessly elegant, modern design, a stunning selection of on-site amenities and conveniences, plus 8,200 sq ft of street-level retail space, the project will seamlessly integrate into the neighbourhood's existing streetscape while adding rare high-density residential space to this fast-growing corner of the city. 

The six-storey mid-rise boutique building will house an exclusive selection of 69 suites, broken down into the following floorplan mix:

  • 15 one-bedroom units
  • 23 one-bedroom plus den units
  • 10 two-bedroom units
  • 7 two-bedroom plus den units
  • 5 three-bedroom units
  • 3 towns and 6 penthouses

Units and towns will range from 523 square feet to 1,473 square feet, and will feature exceptional views of the surrounding streetscape.

The 3,000 square-foot amenity terrace will offer a stunning 360-degree view of the neighbourhood, and the building’s single-level underground parking will have 41 car parking spaces, as well as 65 bicycle spaces.

The mixed-use property will also include a generous 8,200 square feet (762 square metres) of street-level retail space, which will be divided into two sections. Its first floor will also house the community’s five beautifully-designed two-storey townhome suites, which residents will access via dedicated private entryways that front onto the site’s peaceful and quiet south side.

The developer of this project is Fieldgate Urban, a division of the prominent development firm Fieldgate Homes, which has become synonymous with impeccable high-quality property development. TACT Architecture Inc, one of the top residential architectural practices in the Greater Toronto Area, have placed their signature on Poet Condominiums’ project design, ensuring optimal design and utmost attention to details.

Units of the new Poet Condominiums project are already available for sale in the preconstruction phase. Interest has grown dramatically since the project was announced by the developers, and potential buyers are urged to inquire as soon as possible if they want to secure their new ‘poetically modern’ home.

Location & Neighbourhood

Positioned on the major intersection of Queen Street East and Leslie Street, The Poet Condos is ideally situated in Leslieville, a scenic, vibrant neighbourhood surrounded by small businesses, trendy shops and studios where urban meets history. Popular with families and professionals alike, it’s been called the “brunch capital” of the city!

The neighbourhood manages to seamlessly blend urban appeal with a rich history and makes an excellent alternative for those who crave a quieter place to come home to, but still appreciate easy access to downtown. In fact, it’s only a few minutes’ walk to the Queen TTC streetcar, which runs 24/7 and takes you into the city’s core in a mere twenty minutes, and to a bus route that connects directly with the TTC's Line 2 subway. With easy access to Lakeshore Boulevard and the Don Valley Parkway, getting around is a breeze for drivers too! This is a great neighbourhood for individuals who want easy access to Toronto’s downtown areas, but crave living in trendy, yet peaceful and family-friendly neighbourhood.

An abundance of parks (including Leslie Grove Park, Greenwood Park and Ashbridges Estate), schools and community centers makes it an ideal location for families, while urban explorers will love being within minutes of other trendy neighbourhoods like the Distillery District or the Beaches. Living at The Poet Condos means that a wide array of trendy shops, restaurants and cafes are right at your doorstep!

Boasting a Walk Score of 93 and Transit Score of 91, plus a perfect Bike Score of 100, this is a project that exceptionally combines the coveted mix of urban convenience with a tranquil, trendy and family-friendly environment.

The Poet Condos offers an incredible opportunity for those who are thinking about moving to or investing in the city's east end. Sales begin this weekend and there's already a lot of interest, so if you're interested in this development, get in touch with us by filling out the form below!

With suites priced from the $600,000s, this is a great price point for first-time home buyers in particular. Condominiums are relatively rare in Leslieville, compared to other parts of the city, and newly-built suites are especially difficult to come by. These market factors bode well for the future value of this development's suites.

Right now, this project is still in its pre-construction phase, and the developers have not yet made it available to the public, but units and townhouses are expected to sell out very quickly. If you are interested in learning more about this exciting Leslieville project as Fieldgate Urban releases further details, and would like the exclusive opportunity to reserve your Poet Condominiums suite early before units are offered for sale to the general public, please fill out the form below.
