Where Bloor West Village meets High Park
From Kingsway to the Junction, we attract residents who want the best of both worlds: all the conveniences of city life paired with the beauty of nature. Our historic neighbourhood offers everything you could need within a short walk or driving distance—from bakeries, delicatessens, cafés, and restaurants in Bloor West Village, to banks, grocery stores, and shopping along Dundas Street West. And don’t forget all that can be found directly across the street in the park, including a fishing pond, animal paddocks, flower gardens, sports facilities, and excellent walking and cycling paths. For those who have grown up in the area, there’s no settling for less than what gorgeous High Park has to offer.
A worry-free retirement lifestyle
Chartwell Grenadier is the perfect place to call home if you’re looking for a convenient lifestyle that allows you to channel your energy into the people and pursuits you enjoy most. Here, you can socialize with friends, participate in leisure, fitness, or hobby experiences that pique your interest—such as book clubs, gardening, art classes or day trips—or simply unwind in your suite or on our outdoor patio knowing our staff are here to support you when you need them. For you, that could be delicious, freshly-prepared meals, housekeeping, laundry, transportation services, or even optional personal support.
You’ll feel truly at home in our bright and well-appointed studio, one- or two-bedroom suites, many overlooking lush High Park.
