A new pre-construction condominium is looking to dominate the harbourfront.
Q Tower is a new high-rise mixed-use condominium development in Toronto. This 59 storey pre-construction condo with a total of 1,003 units is located at 200 Queens Quay W in the South Core neighbourhood between Simcoe and York Street.
The developers of this project are Lifetime Developments and DiamondCorp. This single tower will including one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts.
Q Tower includes a 5-storey, mixed-use podium that will hold retail, office and amenity space. The South Core neighbourhood is booming with intensification and new developments. By the time this project is built, there will be even more employment opportunities and local amenities, just a mere walk away from this development site.
Currently, 200 Queens Quay West is occupied by an 8-level above ground parking garage. This parking garage takes up 1.24-acres of under-utilized lands between the South Core and Harbourfront neighbourhoods. As this area is starting to boom with new developments including mixed-use buildings, office towers and new local amenities, it only makes sense that the land on 200 Queens Quay West would be slated for development as well.
