According to Vogue, Queen West is the “Second Coolest Neighborhood in the World”*! So I guess that means Queen West is the coolest Neighborhood in Canada! Who wouldn’t want to live in the coolest neighborhood! One of my favourite condos in the Queen West area are The Bohemian Embassy Flats and Lofts.
If you drive along Queen Street West now you’ll see lots of activity and commercial development: local Fresh Co, Curry’s Art store, art galleries, hopping bars, restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and of course the popular Trinity Bell Woods Park. But years ago this area wasn’t anything like it appears now. The formally Bohemian neighborhood is now a mix of old school, eclectic fun with upscale boutiques and restaurants. In fact The Drake moved into the area in 2004 and then followed the Gladstone hotel. The Drake was the first sign of the start of gentrification of the neighbourhood. The area now is known for its art scene.
In 2011, the Bohemian Embassy Flat and Lofts were built by the Pemberton Group but not after quite the uproar. Made up of 2 towers, the Bohemian Embassy was resisted by area residents claiming the two towers would change the landscape of Queen West.
Standing proud is an 8 story tower fronting on Queen St at 1169 Queen and 19 story tower located just behind at 1171 Queen. Be lucky enough to snag a two level soft loft with a large terrace!
The Bohemian is managed by Dash Property Management. Residents can enjoy the array of amenities including a 24 hr concierge, party room, rooftop terrace with BBQs, guest suites and visitor parking.
