The Poet Condos
By: Fieldgate Urban
This condo project is a six-story boutique condominium proposed by Fieldgate Urban for Toronto’s Leslieville neighbourhood. This Leslieville condominium sits on the south side of Queen, just east of Leslie Street. The proposal calls for a six-storey building with just 72 dwelling units and 8,200 square-feet of retail space at grade split into two distinct spaces.
A rare modern development in this east-end stretch, The Poet Condos is slated for a 2021 occupancy date.
In addition to the retail space, the building’s first floor will contain a residential lobby and five-townhomes each spanning two storeys, accessible from private entrances off Memory Lane, which borders the southern portion of the site.

Location & Neighbourhood
Leslieville condominiums are less common in comparison to some of the neighbourhoods closer to downtown where we see rapid growth and dense corridors of high-rise towers, but this east-end pocket has still seen an increase in modern boutique buildings, townhomes and trendy lofts.
It’s an eclectic neighbourhood that’s been defined as a “strategic growth area,” in the province’s growth plan and is primed for mixed-use intensification that takes advantage of the neighbourhood’s access to streetcar routes, restaurants and services.
It has a warm, neighbourly feel and has become increasingly popular with young families, as well as with students, artists and young professionals.
The Queen streetcar runs 24/7, taking you as far east as the idyllic Woodbine Beach and as far west as Etobicoke. It’s about a twenty-minute trip into the downtown core, making it a great neighbourhood for the professional who wants easy access to some of downtown’s employment areas, yet craves a quirky neighbourhood to come home to.
The building is also right on a bus route that connects directly with the TTC’s line 2.
Leslieville has become known for its trendy brunch spots, bars and community hubs, like The Opera House, a popular concert venue and the Broadview Hotel, a heritage-dwelling-turned-bar, similar to the west end’s Drake Hotel.
It’s a neighbourhood with plentiful parks, schools, child care services and recreation centres, so there’s always something to do, whatever the season.
These condos will be part of Concord Park Place, which is being developed by one of the most influential developers in Toronto, Concord Adex. They’re renowned for playing one of the most influential roles in shaping Toronto’s skyline by developing the the CityPlace master-planned community, which was pivotal for fleshing out the cityscape from the waterfront.
We expect the same thing to happen with Park Place. This will be a walkable and integrated new neighbourhood with plenty of shops in the ground level of the buildings.
This trio of buildings will feature an innovative twist on the railing balcony with a curved European flair along its signature stature. Each building will have its own impressive and unique view of the 8 acre parkland surrounding this preconstruction development. Sharing one pavilion-style podium, this project will be the epicentre of this new neighbourhood.
Suites throughout this project will range from junior 1-bedroom units starting at 372 to 455 square feet. 1-bedroom units ranging from 555 to 711 square feet. 1-bedroom plus den units ranging from 727 to 875 square feet. 2-bedroom units will range from 727 to 1172 square feet and 3-bedroom units will range from 1168 to 1698 square feet. There will surely be a layout perfect for any walk of life.
