Great location

 
(3.6 out of 5 stars)
by Jay L. Dec 27, 2017
Charlie condos are located at King and Spadina, very good location, many shops in the area. There is a grocery store in the next building underneath and also LCBO. The building is very straight-forward, all glass, nothing special about it, no outstanding architecture details, floor-to-ceiling windows. A positive aspect is that there are no buildings directly blocking the views. You'd get some vies from all the views. A very nice lobby, very modern - different from the outside. It has nice marble details. Units appear to be on the smaller side. It has all the common elements including a swimming pool and a large gym located on the 7th floor - it has everything.

A very modern condo with a great gym

This modern condo has a very spacious and beautiful entrance area with a fire-place and a lot of various facilities in the middle of the building including a gym overseeing Toronto. You live directly in the downtown core just steps away to stores, night clubs and restaurants. There is a LCBO store just across the street.

A very nice condo

It is 30 seconds away from a King street car stop - very convenient location. The condo has Aroma Espresso coffee shop on the street level - definitively a benefit if you like grabbing a fresh coffee in the morning. A very bright unit with huge windows. My guests love the city views.

Condo at King and Spadina

 
(4.3 out of 5 stars)

Very centrally located, at King and Spadina. It has an extensive set of facilities including a swimming pool - everything is located on the seventh floor. A very nice city view when you are exercising - it adds additional motivation. :-)

this condo is a joke

 
(2.0 out of 5 stars)

I'll make this quick... I've been living here with my bf for almost 2 years now and this building is honestly such a joke....

-4 elevators (only 2 go to every single floor, the other 2 stop at 6 and one of the lower rise elevators shuts off @ 9pm)
-one of the elevators is ALWAYS broken, there is always an issue and Thyssen is back and forth working on it
-Every quarter they clear everyone from the entire garage (6 floors) from 8-6pm and do a cleaning. Honestly, I grew up in a condo and never did this happen so frequently. There are so many other issues in the building to spend our $$ on
-The walls are thin, if your neighbour is drilling or using a hammer, you'll hear it.
- A default place comes with sliding doors (and they're problematic)
-Zero counter space in the bathroom, like there, actually isn't a counter.
-Rooms are laid out very weird - we're in a 2 bed 2 bath and you would need to have a twin bed in each room (yup, including the master) just to have some real space... very strange
-No window treatments on the windows, but i guess that's to be expected
-Tub has half doors as well... default condo
-Overall, other than location and garage parking and not too difficult visitor parking. I probably wouldn't live here. I'm a driver and its close to the highway and people can come over and get a spot (if they're early enough) but overall the building was poorly constructed and the mgmt company is a joke. They've already switched it twice (Security at least 3 times) for cheaper and crappier companies

TTC at your door

 
(4.0 out of 5 stars)

Located just east of Spadina Charlie is the sister building to The Hudson next door by Great Gulf Homes. Registered in 2013 and designed by Diamond and Schmitt Architects & Cecconi Simone Inc this building has many liked features by residents. The south and east views are the best especially the south-east corner. Amenities galore and close to the financial district with TTC at your door.

Noisy

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Anonymous Jan 25, 2017
Bad: Building not well constructed; very thin walls and noise travels throughout an entire floor. The building is primarily tenanted by young people who tend to blast music for hours at a time. Unlike other buildings in Toronto, this tends to go on well after midnight on the weekends. There are 9 units per floor. Good: If your condo is west facing and you live on a high floor you have the best-unobstructed views in the city.
