10 GTA Condos With Awesome Amenities

Forget a typical workout room or bland guest suite — these Greater Toronto Area condos have gotten creative with amenities.

Not all condo pools are created equal — one in Toronto gives swimmers what’s likely the only underwater view of the city’s skyline.


Amenities are one of the perks that can differentiate a condo unit from a single-family home. With costs split among building residents, condo owners can get access to perks that could be prohibitively expensive otherwise. How many homeowners can afford — or have the room for — a full-sized gym or yoga studio in their homes? And what about even more impressive amenities? From a bowling alley to a rock-climbing wall, here are 10 awesome amenities in GTA condos.

We put the real back in real estate.

1. “Sky Track”

living room

Building: ZEN King West

Address: 9 Western Battery Rd., Toronto 

Amenity: It’s called the “Sky Track” — on the fifth-floor terrace of ZEN Condos there’s a 200-metre circle track that loops around a covered outdoor lounge, open-air yoga studio, and indoor gym. Given thesurge in running’s popularityduring the COVID-19 pandemic, this amenity has likely been put to good use in recent years.

2. Rock-Climbing Wall

living room

Building: HighPark Condominiums
1830 Bloor Street West, Toronto 
HighPark Condominiums is probably in the running for the tallest amenity in the GTA. On the second floor of the Parkside Club, a three-level private amenity area, you’ll find a double-height rock-climbing wall.

3. Greenhouse

living room

Building: The Plant Condos
Address: 41 Dovercourt Rd., Toronto 

Amenity: Windmill Developments took the concept of farm-to-table to a whole new level with the Plant Condos project in Toronto’s West Queen West neighbourhood. Located on the third floor, atop the building’s podium, there’s an outdoor community garden connected to an indoor kitchen that doubles as a greenhouse. Residents can grow their own food in the garden, prep the ingredients, and serve guests right on site. Also boasting a green roof pollinator garden and vine-laced southern facade, the Plant is undeniably a super sustainable Toronto home.

4. “eFinity Pool”

living room

Address: E Condos

Address: 8 Eglinton Ave. E., Toronto

Amenity: You’ve probably heard of infinity pools — which have unobstructed edges and often provide killer views— but what about an eFinity pool? That’s what Bazis Inc., Metropia, and RioCan Living, the development team behind E condos, have dubbed this amenity. Located on the 31st floor of the high-rise, the pool’s glass sides let swimmers take in the surrounding skyline while underwater. 

5. Wine Cellars

living room

Building: Bellaria Residences, Tower 3
Address: 9245 Jane St., Vaughan

Amenity: Bottoms up! For the third tower of Solmar Development Corporation’s four-phase Bellaria Residences project, the developer decided to create a dedicated wine room. The room includes multiple wine cellars, similar to storage lockers — but for libations.

6. Pickleball Court

living room

Building: 8 Temple Condos

Address: 8 Temple Ave., Toronto

Amenity: It can’t be easy for Toronto developers to set themselves apart with amenities. However, with 8 Temple, a proposed 16-storey, 269-unit condo building, Curated Properties has managed to do so with plans for what, if the project is completed, would be Toronto’s first rooftop pickleball court, reports real estate news website RENX.

7. Saltwater Pool

living room

Building: M4
Address: 3967-3981 Redmond Rd., Mississauga

Amenity: The fourth phase in the massive M City Condominiums project in Mississauga, the M4 tower has four levels of amenities, but we think it’s the large salt-water pool on the eighth floor that steals that show. 

8. Golf Simulator

living room

Building: King West Condominiums
Address: 75 East Liberty St., Toronto
Amenity: Golf is an all-season sport if you live in the King West Condominiums, a set of three towers sharing a podium. Residents of the PlazaCorp condos, completed in 2013, have access to a high-tech golf and sports simulator. (If this sounds appealing to you, check out the Wahi listing for an available unit at King West Condominiums.)

9. Bowling Alley

living room

Building: Harbour View Estates Ⅲ

Address: 3 Navy Wharf Crt., Toronto

Amenity: Toronto’s bowling alleys are facing the wrecking ball as development forges on. Fortunately, for those who call the Harbour View Estates home (you can, too, as a unit is available as of publishing), the high-rise community in the heart of CityPlace has its very own two-lane bowling alley. The amenity is part of Harbour View’s SuperClub amenity, an approximately 20,000-square-foot recreational facility with a pool, basketball court, gym, squash court, and more.

10. Bouldering Cave

living room

Building: The Wyatt
Address: 20 Tubman Ave., Toronto

Amenity: It’s not a typical rock-climbing wall. A bouldering wall is uniquely designed for a form of free-climbing (no harness, no ropes!) called, well, bouldering. It’s one of several amenities — including a Kids’ Zone and a fitness centre — at the Wyatt, part of the revitalization of Toronto’s Regent Park neighbourhood.
