Pictures & Floor Plans (if available)
Park Lake Residences was named after the two main neighborhood attractions, the park and the lake. High Park (Toronto’s Largest Park at 500 acres), Martin Goodman Trail, South Humber Park and Grenadier Pond are immediate park options for runners, cyclist or dog owners in the building. Depending where the suite is located in the building, suites can offer spectacular views of the water or city skyline.
Park Lake Residences consists of two towers, 18 and 19 storeys high linked by a four storey podium. Suites range in size from 575 to 1,145 sq ft and 279 suites in the complex. The downside of Park Lake Residences is the lobby, a lost opportunity and it doesn’t say Park or Lake. I find the lobby lit with artificial lighting and facing the building’s visitor parking depressing. This design is unacceptable for a building’s location. The amenities are an improvement, the gym faces the roof of the podium where the bbq’s and landscaped roof top terrace are located. The party room and billiards offers views of the lake.
The suites at 1900 Lake Shore Blvd have efficient layouts and space is hardly wasted. The kitchens with their peninsula style design and breakfast bar are efficiently laid out. The building’s finishes are traditional but classic – travertine looking tile in the bathroom, travertine marble or granite counter tops with under mount sinks in the bathroom and kitchen, 9ft ceilings, chestnut brown to espresso brown hardwood engineered flooring, stainless steel kitchen appliances.
Park Lake Residents can walk to Queensway Avenue to catch the 501Queen streetcar for an easy commute downtown.
