Explore 44 … on a date

If you live at 44 Charles, you don’t have to go far to put a great date together, from a restaurant with the best view of the city to a movie at the best theatre in town. (more…)

The Pool With a View

Indoor pools aren’t a rarity in the neighbourhood. But you’d be hard pressed to find a better post-swim spot to take in the gorgeousness of the city than the 51st floor sundeck just off our swimming facility.

Look south and you can see the buzzing downtown core including Yonge Dundas Square, the financial district and Discovery Way.

Turn to your left and you can gaze west along Bloor Street, past the University towards High Park. On a clear day, you can watch the airplanes coming and leaving Pearson Airport.

You can walk around the patio for the eastern view of the lush Don Valley and the port lands. Or you can stay cozy and warm in the pool and gaze out at it while doing your laps.

When you’re done your soak, hit the sauna and then the showers, both right there.

Sound like your kind of evening? Call Stella Gomes or Michael Gula at 416-961-4998 or email livemanulifecentre@manulife.com to set up a tour.

Explore 44

Welcome to the 44 Charles Street blog, a celebration of life on the southeast corner of Bloor & Bay and a look inside the area’s most affordable high-end rental residence.

Living here has so many advantages, and you’ll see them all here on the blog. We’ll show you the building’s unique amenities like the view from the pool and offer entertaining tips if you’re using the club or party room. We’ll tour you through the great shops and services at the Manulife Centre, just steps outside 44 Charles’ lobby.

We’ll also take you on a tour of the neighbourhood and show you what gives it its character like Yorkville, the Mink Mile and quite possibly the city’s best deli.

We’ll also be sharing some apartment-living wisdom we’ve picked up over the last three decades, both here and on Pinterest. Whether you already live here or you’re thinking of moving in, you’ll find some great tips for making your space better. Keep an eye out for our guest stylists who’ll be making an appearance here from time to time, starting with Yanic Simard, who designed our furnished rental suites.

And don’t forget that you can also follow along on Twitter. That’s where we’ll be posting new vacancies, so add us if you’re keen on getting in.
