Toronto is one of the most desirable cities in the world. From the eclectic neighbourhoods, incredibly rich culture and diversity, it should come as no surprise to learn that Toronto constantly tops the list when it comes to the world’s most liveable cities.
However, in recent years, it has been a struggle for most young professionals and students to find a home in Toronto that’s high-quality and well-situated.
The Waverley is changing that. With five-star amenities and a real community feel, this 166-unit rental property is unlike anything else in Toronto. You might be thinking: Toronto has a lot of apartments, what makes The Waverley different? Well, here are 10 reasons why you should rent at The Waverley:
1. The History
If you grew up in Toronto, the iconic Waverley Hotel and the Silver Dollar Room will have a special place in your heart. The Waverley Hotel was a four-storey hotel built in 1900 and right next-door was the neighbouring music venue, the Silver Dollar Room. Many Torontonians will recall legends like Bob Dylan, The Barenaked Ladies and Bobby Bland taking to the stage at the Silver Dollar from the 50s all the way up until 2017. To pay homage to one of the city’s most historic venues, The Waverley worked with a heritage consultant to carefully preserve elements from the former Silver Dollar including the original terrazzo floor, bar, oil paintings, stage, and iconic Silver Dollar sign. These heritage elements are now in the process of being meticulously reinstated.
2. The Focus on Care
The Waverley goes beyond ordinary amenities to offer the features you never knew you needed in an apartment building. Pamper your puppy in The Waverley’s signature pet spa called “Beauty for the Beast” or experience peace of mind with complimentary access to virtual care from Cleveland Clinic Canada, a global healthcare leader. Using innovative technology, you can confidentially connect with a Cleveland Clinic Canada clinician for non-emergency medical issues without leaving your home. The Express Care Online® service can assess a variety of medical concerns, including screening for COVID-19.
3. The Menu
When choosing an apartment, one key feature that renters seek out is a location that is surrounded by top-tier cafés, restaurants, and wine bars. What if you had quality beverage and snack options right in your lobby? Well, Toronto staples Boxcar Social and Greenhouse Juice are moving into The Waverley. That’s right, freshly ground espresso, delicious snacks, worldly wines, and plant-based beverages are at your door-step when you reside at The Waverley. There is also an exclusive Greenhouse vending machine in the penthouse fitness center for a healthy refuel when you need it most. Did we mention that the fitness centre is an official Hammer Strength® Training Facility?
4. The Art
Art is that critical final layer that makes a community really feel like home. That is why The Waverley has teamed up with Ashley Mulvihill of Ninth Editions to create a one-of-a-kind art collection. The Waverley is filled with original art pieces, featuring artists such as Thrush Holmes and Roxana Azar. A two-storey custom lobby mural by Bird-O has recently been completed and it is truly exquisite! To get a sneak peek of the mural, see BirdO’s recent TikTok post here.
5. The Exclusive Partnerships
The Waverley is more than just an apartment, it is a community designed with convenience in mind. The wide range of exclusive Waverley partnerships offers residents useful and convenient services.
