“Continue your life’s adventure at The Sumach by Chartwell.”

At The Sumach by Chartwell, safety is our highest priority. We continue to maintain strong infection protocols, including following all government directives and fostering safe social experiences for everyone’s peace of mind.

A New Concept of Retirement Living

The Sumach by Chartwell is a beautiful 12-storey retirement residence featuring spacious apartments with flexible, à la carte services and casual amenities, perfect for older adults looking to combine a vibrant neighbourhood with a welcoming residence located in the heart of Downtown East.

Here, you are empowered to craft your lifestyle. That means you’ll begin at our base rate and have the flexibility to build your own package of convenient services and support, personalized to your needs, desires and finances.

Location, location, location

One of the most valued aspects of life at The Sumach is our location in the newly revitalized and redeveloped Regent Park neighbourhood. The recent revitalization of the area has restored a diversity of architecture that matches surrounding neighbourhoods and reconnected Regent Park to Toronto’s grid of streets. It also included the creation of new commercial spaces and community facilities that have provided a venue for the neighbourhood’s thriving arts and culture scene. As such, we benefit from being in the midst of a dynamic urban environment where everything—including shopping, dining, culture, recreation and transportation—is only steps away.

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.

The freedom and choice to pursue the lifestyle you want

When you walk through our doors, you’ll find a secure, stress-free, and amiable setting where delectable dining experiences, engaging activities and social events take place naturally with friends and neighbours. You’ll love the convenience of a variety of on-site amenities, including a fitness area, billiards and lounge areas, horticultural space, theatre, library, pet spa, bikes racks and much more. If you’re not in the mood to cook, you can dine in the residence’s bistro, or host a private event in the 9th floor pub.

Optional wellness support—available â la carte—and helpful staff members are just some of the features that complete the package of how you want to live, both now and in the future.
