One Park Lane – Building Details
The Star describes 280 Simcoe thus:
Though largely geometric, the facades are enlivened by bay windows that run vertically from top to bottom.
One Park Lane was built in a time when Toronto had room to spare, and with suites the size of houses, it offers the downtown lifestyle without sacrificing space.
Speaking of downtown living, the condo’s Kensington-Chinatown location is minutes away from the best malls, restaurants, museums, hospitals, universities and more!
280 Simcoe St Ph-09 – The Space
And at 1,526 sq. ft., it’s also bigger than the average detached house in Ontario.
Ph-09 consists of 2 massive bedrooms, 2 beautiful bathrooms, an enormous living and dining area, and a gorgeous galley kitchen with a breakfast nook.
Besides immersing the suite in sunlight, the large windows provide expanded views of the city.
When things get dark, simply flick on the pot-lights.
In addition to being big on size, Ph-09 is big on style.
But the jewel in the condo’s crown is the concrete feature wall.
Not only does it look great, it’s also very functional, with a projector screen above and side-mounted cabinets.
Ph-09’s dining room also knows how to catch the eye.
The wall next to the dining room can also be used for decor, such as paintings, photographs or abstract art.
280 Simcoe St Ph-09 – Kitchen
At an astonishing 8.0 by 17.9 sq. ft., Ph-09’s kitchen seems to go on forever.
According to The Spruce:
Also, galley kitchens are ergonomically better than some other kitchen design layouts since key services are clustered near each other.
Besides efficiency, the kitchen is also incredibly beautiful.
In addition to being a galley kitchen, it’s also an eat-in kitchen thanks to a built-in breakfast bar.
Ph-09 comes with the following appliances:
- Subzero fridge and stainless-steel oven
- Bosch cooktop and LG microwave
- Dishwasher and range hood
- Washer and dryer
280 Simcoe St Ph-09 – Primary Bedroom & Bath
Clocking in at 13.2 by 14.0 sq. ft., the massive bedroom is outfitted with dusky hardwood floors, wide windows, a mirror-door closet, custom-built storage, and a 4-piece ensuite bath.
The 4-piece bath boasts granite counters, a built-in vanity, custom storage with wood finishes, glistening gray tiles, recessed lighting, and a soaker tub with a rain shower.
280 Simcoe St Ph-09 – 2nd Bedroom & Bath
Like the primary suite, the second bedroom contains hardwood floors, custom-built storage and a mirror-door closet.
It also possesses an ensuite bath—a rarity for condos with second bedrooms.
Arrayed in granite, glass and wood, it features a built-in vanity, raised sink bowl, custom-made storage, and a walk-in rain shower.

One Park Lane lies at the cross-section of two great neighbourhoods: Kensington Market and Chinatown—dubbed Kensington-Chinatown.
Wikivoyage describes Kensington Market thus:
Everything from fresh food markets to restaurants and bars, vintage clothing boutiques, spice markets, and music shops are all contained in two small north-south streets and a handful of cross-streets.
Kensington is also famous for its abundance of music shops and vintage clothing stores.
Local Food Tours gushes:
Kensington Market is Toronto’s veritable hub for all things vintage. From shoes at stores like Cinderella Vintage, to accessories, to of course, clothes…
The other half of Kensington-Chinatown is one of the city’s most historic and culturally significant areas.
Speaking of Chinatown, Destination Toronto declares:
You’ll find bustling produce markets that spill out onto the street, numerous shops and food stalls, neon signs and a plethora of cuisines…
While Chinatown has its share of small stores and boutiques, it also contains two large shopping centres.
For instance, Dragon City Mall features:
[A] 13,000 sq ft restaurant serving fine Chinese cuisine, popular karaoke lounge, fashion boutiques, jewellery stores, optical shop, Chinese herbs, wireless service, pet shop, retail and a over 15,000 sq ft health centre.
