Out of the ordinary indeed. The Bohemian Embassy Condos on 1169 Queen St & 1171 Queen St is the spark that has ignited not so much a transformation but an expansion of what already exists a lively, eclectic neighbourhood devoted to a celebration of the urban life on the edge of the moment.
Buyers get to choose from an eight-storey mid-rise facing Queen Street with the street level given over to shops, cafes and boutiques that maintain the character of today's streetscape, or a 19-storey high-rise towards the rear of the site where residents enjoy unparalleled views of the city and lake.
Connecting them is a landscaped courtyard, shaded with greenery, tucked away from the bustle of Queen Street but easily accessible through the 35-ft. gateway that is both the entrance to the property and a visual delight to passersby.
That courtyard is just the beginning of the pleasures that await residents. There is a mens and women's fitness centre, a multi-media lounge plus the unexpected treasures such as the rooftop 1169 Queen West Sky Lounge with its splendid outdoor patio. And Bohemian has been registered with the Canada Green Building Council whose LEED (Leadership in Energy and Conservation Design) system recognizes projects that have reduced environmental impacts promoting high performance, sustainable buildings.
In addition to the Drake, Bohemian Embassy's neighbours include the world-renowned Sandra Ainsley Gallery, which exhibits pieces by major contemporary Canadian, American, and internationally recognized artists working in glass and mixed media.
Queen West is also home to trendy restaurants, cafe's, boutiques, and nightspots that feed the lifestyle of the eclectic mix of its residents. In addition, the nearby Queen streetcar places the subway and Toronto's countless other amenities at residents doorstep, making this a great place to live, work, and play
Residents will also have the use of tremendous building amenities, including a mens and women’s fitness centre with workout facilities and the Bohemian Sky Lounge with its rooftop garden and barbecue. Owners will love coming home to this fun, funky environment.
1171 Queen West offers 364 suites, including a number of attractive flats and 2 storey lofts. Every unit has a patio, balcony, or terrace, some up to 20 feet long and 5 feet deep. Suites range from 475-square-foot one-bedrooms to one-bedroom-plus- dens, two-bedrooms, and expansive 2 storey two-bedroom-plus-den lofts.
