Spring has kinda arrived in the city, which means warmer weather and none of that sad grey ice/slush mix on the sides of the road. It also means more bikes in the city. Not only is biking great for your health and overall fitness, it can be a lot easier on your wallet – and sanity – than owning a car or having to be at the mercy of the TTC every morning. Have we mentioned that bikes are very condo friendly? We’re here to give some tips for those who are thinking about trading in their morning traffic for that 2-wheel life.

Heretofore on this day, the 13th day of November, in the year two thousand and fourteen, let it be known that the publication known as Toronto Life has written a proclamation that Context shall be crowned the King of Toronto.

We made a video! Exciting, right? Now you’ll be able to see how we’re going to transform the area, how we’re SO close to public transit, steps away from Yorkdale Shopping Centre, and some renderings of The Yorkdale.

HOW GORGEOUS IS THAT VIEW? Sorry, we can’t hold in our excitement!

We know you’ve been itching to see some renderings from The Yorkdale ever since we announced our newest project. Well, ask and you shall receive! Okay wait, that’s not true – that phrase won’t always get you what you want but in this case, it worked. Without further ado…

Sounds like the title of a teen horror flick, right? But alas, we’re talking about Toronto’s favourite end-of-summer event, the Canadian National Exhibition or more lovingly referred to as the Ex! We figured we’re the best people to write about the food this year seeing as we survived the Cronut burger last summer. This year there’s no Cronuts but there’s a helluva lotta new food items that we’re itching to go sample tomorrow when the Ex opens!

A few months ago we shared with you some tips and suggestions on where you should shop so that you can finally start dressing like an adult. Now, we’re moving on to how to make your home look presentable and fancy by shopping at Yorkdale. You ready?


So remember how we started a series talking about all the good that goes on in our lovely city? Like the Toronto Batman or the People for Good? Well, we think it’s high time we started sharing more good things that happen in the best city in the world, starting with something that we’re really proud to be a part of: a scholarship!


This is the biggest news of the summer, so hold onto your butts!

We’ve already told you that our newest project is headed to Yorkdale, and it’s called … well, The Yorkdale.  But now we’ve got even bigger and better news …

Registration is now open! Oh, and we’ve got a sweet logo! AND an exclusive first look to you, loyal blog readers!



Want to see more? Well, you’re just going to have to be patient but be sure to register so you know everything you need to know.

The Yorkdale is a mid-rise condominium project by Context ( That’s us!) and Metropia. It is located in the backyard of Yorkdale shopping centre, which means that you basically have the worlds biggest walk-in closet.This also means you are on the TTC line still because apparently the darn thing goes north of Bloor. Who would have thought that?


We dished out the details on what’s happening at Downsview Park this summer,  which is within close proximity to our new project, The Yorkdale, but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten all about Fort York, Library District’s neighbouring public space! In fact, Fort York is poppin’ this summer – and it’s no longer just a historical site.
