THE MERCER 8 Mercer Street  King West

The Mercer – 8 Mercer Street

Registration Date: 2015-06-09

 

A striking brick and stone design with soaring stature sits at 8 Mercer Street. Among condo communities in the Greater Metropolitan area, The Mercer is a standout in King West. The façade is divided into geometric sections that cut the expected verticality of a high rise, each with a different directional orientation and colour palette. Vast expanses of glass, punctuated by sturdy steel framing, create an open and transparent quality, highly desirable in a building of this scale. As such it complements but does not dominate the area despite its dimensions.

Graywood Developments, along with BBB Architects, has conceived of a village within a village in the heart of downtown. Akin to typical Manhattan density, The Mercer houses 415 suites on 33 sprawling floors. With its superior location near the Entertainment and Financial Districts, it is the perfect home for young working professionals and families seeking a true urban lifestyle with amenities and services within easy reach. 

 

The Mercer Condo Amenities 

A top-rated building like The Mercer condo will have more than the average number amenities. There is a wonderful Scandinavian-inspired sauna and spa to rest any weary soul. Plus, residents can enjoy the screening room, party room with catering kitchen, fitness centre with hot tub, and huge communal lounge. A real draw for everyone is the 6th floor 10,000 square-foot terrace and game area where families can enjoy a summer barbecue and couples can entertain by the reflective pool. Resort living has become the new norm. Despite the excitement of the city outside, a respite from the hustle and bustle is a real plus. 

One and two-bedroom suites (with optional den) range from 360 to 1,100 square feet, with a choice of city views and custom detailing like plank hardwood or porcelain tile floors. All have individually-controlled air and heating, 9 or 10-foot ceilings and a view balcony. The interiors are styled impeccably by The Design Agency with custom finishes and fixtures. Italian-inspired kitchens are outfitted with top-grade appliances (with matching veneer panels) and ample cabinet storage space. 

Chefs love the islands and easy maneuverability of the layout. Spa-like uncluttered bathrooms complete the picture of sophistication and comfort. The concept is sleek and modular to maximize the use of space and take advantage of the light. Walls of windows give considerable spatial expansion units of any size. 

 

The Mercer Condo Neighbourhood

How fitting that the chic aura of this exceptional condo community is situated in a trendy neighbourhood in Kings West Village at 8 Mercer Street near John, the heart of the downtown cultural corridor. It is a great addition to the growing area and the benefits are legion. While residents enjoy the extensive in-house amenities, they often prefer to partake of the varied shopping and dining opportunities along the streets. Urban living is about outdoor recreation and feeling the pulse of the city. 

A great revitalization of the area is under way and you can literally feel the invigoration. The streets are being transformed with new landscaping, seating, and added green spaces. While Mercer may be a quiet, side street, it is near a plethora of city delights. When you want to dine out, there is Byblos, Pai, The Loose Moose, Milagro, Luma and Luckee—and, of course, Wayne Gretzky’s Toronto. Music lovers frequent the Glenn Gould Studio or Roy Thomson Hall. Theatre aficionados can be found at the Princess of Wales Theatre and other popular venues in the area like the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Plus, the Toronto Convention Centre, the Air Canada and Roger’s Centres are within walking distance. No one misses out on the action The Mercer.

Resident’s boast that “it is all right here.” If it isn’t, mass transit will take you to where the action is. The location, as expected, has a perfect walking and transit score—not surprising given the convenience of the King subway station on the Yonge-University-Spadina line. The King and Spadina streetcars service the area. Of course, Union Station is Toronto’s transportation hub. Strollers and bikers can reach David Pecaut Square and Simcoe Park in minutes as well as the shops and services along Front and King Streets. The area is well known for its trendy contemporary vibe.
