Located only a block southeast of the intersection of King and Young Streets 88 Scott is truly situated at the crossroads of history and modernity, with one foot in Toronto’s historic Old Town and one in Toronto’s firmly modern financial district. Although Toronto’s Old town is steeped in history it is by no means stuffy and staid. This pleasant 19th century neighbourhood boasts lovely parks, beautiful architecture, wonderful markets and a vibrant community.
Between the Old Town and St Lawrence neighbourhoods and the city’s financial district, 88 Scott residents will never be at a loss for new places to eat. Some of the city’s most delightful gastronomic experiences, such as Vagabundo, 8 Wine Bar, Oliver & Bonacini’s Jump and Trevor Kitchen and Bar, call this area their home. The neighbourhood is also home to the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts and lies within easy walking distance of Toronto’s Opera and Ballet House at the Four Seasons Centre as well as the city’s premier sports and entertainment venue, the Air Canada Centre, to the South. Also to the south is Toronto’s waterfront and access to the relaxation afforded by the Toronto Islands.
Transit will never been an issue at 88 Scott, with on and off ramps to both the Don Valley Parkway and Gardiner Expressway nearby, Toronto’s Union Station less than 10 minutes’ walk away and access to the 504 King Streetcar and King Subway Station on the Yonge-University-Spadina line mere steps from home.
