Pictures & Floor Plans (if available)
When designing Carnaby Row, Streetcar Developments was inspired by Carnaby Street, a famous pedestrian shopping district in downtown London. The builder created a web of laneways, considered the “row”, for walking and biking connecting the building with 8 and 2 Gladstone and leading residents to the many destinations along Queens West Strip and the 501 Queen Streetcar. This strip of Queen Street West has been named, the “Art and Design District” and is considered one of Toronto's signature neighbourhood. It has many independent fashion shops, bars, refurbished historical buildings, cafes and restaurants that gives it the hipster vibe similar to the area in London.
One of the best and most convenient features of Carnaby Row is the onsite Metro on the ground floor. Resident can use an interior access so they could do their grocery shopping in the winter without their coat. This grocery store measures 25,000 square feet, a pretty substantial grocery store for downtown.
At 20 storeys and close to 200 suites, Carnaby Row is much taller than its neighbours, 2 and 8 Gladstone. The glass and steel exterior looks like it would be more at home in the Cityplace neighbourhood. Suites range in size from 491 to 829 sq ft, so the target buyer for Carnaby Row is a first time buyer or investor. The suites are finished with exposed concrete ceilings measuring at 9 ft, horizontal modern cabinetry, hardwood engineered flooring and ceasarstone countertops.
There are many 1 bedroom suites with small interior bedrooms; no windows in the bedroom. This style of layout is not popular with all buyers. Most kitchens are galley in style and the kitchens could use more counter space. A kitchen island can help make the kitchens more user friendly.
The building features amenities a well-designed party room inspired by resto-lounges in the area, an outdoor terrace and fitness centre.
