A new condo development by Minto, Minto Westside is a 20 story, 660 unit project offering potential buyers visually pleasing and well-priced condominiums in Toronto. Units in Minto Westside range from 320 square feet up to 989 square feet, with prices starting in the lower $200,000’s. The building is scheduled to be completed in 2018 and is currently in preconstruction stages.
Set at the intersection of Bathurst and Front, the building seeks to pay homage to the location’s warehouse district origins by recreating certain aspects of the area’s architectural heritage. Two towers linked together by a nine story podium, an 18 story east-side tower and 20 story west-side tower, mirror the warehouses of old, with a luxurious modern twist.
Also located in the neighborhood are Toronto’s Entertainment District, the Wabora restaurant, Thor Expressor Bar and Colette Grand Café. Stanley Park, the Toronto Music Garden, and the Toronto Islands and airport are also close-by the development location, giving future residents easy access to food and a thousand and one options for weeknight and weekend fun. Travel is made simple with close access to waterfront bike trails, the Gardiner Expressway, and Billy Bishop Airport.
Minto Westside has 31 floorplans available. They are sorted into three categories (CityView, W Collection and Bside) and based off of these basic offerings: studio, 1 bedroom, 1 bedroom + den, 2 bedroom, 2 bedroom + den, and 3 bedroom.
The essence of Minto Westside is its commitment to providing its residents with a convenient living and playing oasis in the heart of one of Canada’s busiest cities. Everything, from the amenities to the views and courtyards, is designed with this in mind.
The suites face either views of the city, lake and historic Fort York, or a central W courtyard featuring beautifully landscaped gardens, sitting and walking spaces. From the outside, bright walls and angled columns exude youthful style.

To go along with this well-planned exterior structure, the building will offer its residents a variety of amenities, including a fitness centre, pool, courtyard and lounge and party room.
