Verge Condos is a new pre-construction condo development by RioCan Living. Coming soon to 1001 The Queensway in Etobicoke. The major intersection is at The Queensway and Islington Avenue.
Highlights at Verge Condos
Verge Condos at 1001 The Queensway is located in the Islington-City Centre West neighbourhood in Toronto. Fronting on a large block that houses Cineplex’s flagship Queensway Cinemas (and its massive parking lot), the Milestones, Montana’s Cookhouse, as well as Kelsey’s restaurants do a strong business. RioCan strives to put the site to better use.
Surrounded by mostly low-rise, suburban built form, with much of The Queensway currently dominated by rows of strip retail to the east and west.

The development was submitted late last year, and the planning process is now in its early stages. This is more an indicator of the massing model, which is subject to change as the proposal evolves.
Verge Condos is a mixed use development a total of two residential towers that have been situated on a 4-storey podium. The podium are separated by an 11-m wide driveway access into the site. 15,295 sq ft of outdoor amenity space is located in the central portion of the site.
The project’s tallest building—located closest to the intersection of Queensway and Islington—would rise to a height of 17 storeys, sharing a podium with a 12-storey building immediately to its west.
The Space Designed by Core Architects
The 588-unit development would include 31,000+ of retail area while fronting onto The Queensway—indicating that any of the restaurants or the bank onsite could return after construction—while a green space is planned in between the two four-storey podium structures. The residential lobbies for each building would be located at the south end of the podiums “in order to ensure an activated pedestrian realm along The Queensway” with new retail, the Planning Rationale states.
As currently proposed, the residential unit mix would include 69 studios (11.7%), 280 one-bedroom + den (47.6%), 227 two bedroom + den (38.7%), as well as 12 three-bedroom + den suites (2%). A two-level underground parking garage will feature a total of 591 vehicle spaces, which would be divided into 475 residential as well as 116 visitor/commercial spaces. 442 bicycle spaces are also proposed.
