A beautiful place to call home

At The Sumach, we offer a range of attractive accommodations in different layouts and sizes to meet all needs, including studio, one-bedroom, one-bedroom-plus-den and two-bedroom suites, as well as townhomes. All of our suites feature a range of enviable views of Toronto’s skyline, including the CN Tower and Lake Ontario, and come equipped with full kitchens and in-suite laundry.

The Sumach’s charm extends beyond our spacious apartments to the interior design of the entire building, which evokes a contemporary and inviting visual experience. You’ll find a purposefully curated combination of natural light, modern lighting, open space and serene colours, contrasted against a hint of the traditional, including exposed brick reminiscent of Cabbagetown Victorian townhomes and nostalgic interior elements.
