St. Thomas Developments is working on an ambitious landmark project based on a block-sized plot of land around the downtown Toronto intersection of Queen Street and Yonge Street. The entire development is collectively known as “88,” with specific phases named after the locations of the individual towers that make up the larger community. 88 Queen is the latest to gain the spotlight, joining 88 North and 88 West.
These new downtown Toronto condos will be situated in a signature contemporary high rise ascending to a proposed height of 51 storeys. Its 558 luxurious residential units will feature a full slate of layouts and floorplans, with residents enjoying dramatic downtown views and a complete lineup of on-site luxuries and conveniences.
As a whole, the 88 development will mark a new chapter for this high-profile Garden District intersection.
Named for the beautiful botanical gardens and urban park that comprise one of the neighbourhood’s most cherished highlights, Toronto’s Garden District is a bustling, dynamic area firmly centred in the heart of the action. At 88 Queen, residents will be steps away from subway service on the TTC’s Line 1 (Yonge-University-Spadina) as well as 24-hour streetcar routes along Queen Street. Motorists will also enjoy immediate access to the Gardiner Expressway, Don Valley Parkway, and Lake Shore Boulevard.
The building’s 88 Queen Street East address puts a wealth of iconic and essential Toronto destinations at residents’ feet, including:
- Eaton Centre
- Yonge Street
- Massey Hall
- The King Street West Theatre District
- Ryerson University, the University of Toronto’s St. George Campus, and George Brown College
- St. Lawrence Market
- Yonge-Dundas Square
- First Canadian Place
