The George Condos in Leslieville Toronto
Located in the heart of Leslieville, The George Condos and Towns is an intimate 8-storey boutique residence features 83 units and 8 modern towns. Named for George Leslie, the famous Toronto horticulturalist and founder of this historic community, George is built for design-conscious urbanites with an eye for the good life.
Leslie founded Toronto Nurseries in 1845, supplying trees and shrubs that still grace the city’s most beautiful streets and spaces. This lovely residence is a nod to that legacy. Boasting large outdoor areas, a beautiful courtyard, immaculate landscaping and leafy park views, it’s a place that would have made George Leslie proud.
Redefining outdoor space, the “Urban Yards” are ultra-deep, recessed balconies that expand your living space dramatically and range in sizes up to 30 feet wide and up to 10 feet deep, with room for patio furniture, plants, and a kids’ play area. Each suite comes standard with your very own gas barbecue, great for a mid-week dinner and for weekend entertaining. Standard porcelain tile flooring evokes a luxe backyard oasis, adding elegance to the space.
The amenities at George aren’t something you’ll find in other residences. Like the rest of this community, they’re a little different – and have been designed with owners in mind. A rooftop outdoor gym offers equipment for parkour-style resistance training. Machines are designed to use your own body weight for a great workout – no adjustments required. There is also plenty of room for individual training and stretching. There’s also an outdoor children’s section where your kids can express their creativity on the chalkboard wall, or ride their tricycle on specialized flooring that is easy on little knees.
Hosting a large party and need a bit more space? The rooftop terrace has a large seating area with a built-in barbeque, an outdoor kitchen and bar, and a cozy fire pit. Want to just lay out in the sun? Set up in a lounge chair that provides the perfect place to sit back and relax.
