8 Best Condos in Windsor: Where to Buy Windsor Condominiums [2023]

Windsor Condo Communities

There are many reasons to love living in Windsor, Ontario. The city is just 10 minutes from Detroit on the US side of the border, where it sits on the riverfront. Residents enjoy sweeping waterfront and city skyline views, and it has quick, easy access to numerous walking, biking, and other nature trails, not to mention endless water recreation on the river.

The cost of living in Windsor is lower than in many other Canadian cities. In particular, upscale condos, many of them directly on the waterfront and in highly walkable neighbourhoods, cost a fraction of what they do elsewhere. There's a shop, restaurant, cafe, bar, park, or entertainment venue on every corner in Windsor, so the city's central condo communities are as popular as they are convenient. Of course, they're not all the same, so here are some of Windsor's best condo neighbourhoods.

The Condos at Lily Mac

The Condos at Lily Mac set the bar high. These condos—the latest to take their place along the Detroit River, giving residents another opportunity to enjoy everything Windsor has to offer—represent a share of Windsor's new construction homes for sale. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom units feature one en-suite bathroom in the main bedroom for that extra luxury and convenience. Meanwhile, 10-foot ceilings amplify the sun's rays and significantly impact brightening up the condos, lending a light and airy feel.

Lily Mac condos sell for $700,000 to $850,000, which gets residents some of Windsor's most gorgeous views of the riverfront. Units range from 1,300 to 1,500 square feet (quite large for a condominium), providing ample living space to create the perfect layout. The Condos at Lily Mac also put residents right near the heart of downtown Windsor and offer all the perks of living in a bustling neighbourhood. When it's time to furnish your new condo and settle in at Lily Mac, you should definitely check out the Devonshire Mall across the street.
