Bathurst and Lakeshore is still in its early stages of residential development, and has already become one of Toronto’s more exciting emerging condo neighbourhoods.

The Beach (or “Beaches”) is one of Toronto’s most exciting residential communities; known for the physical beauty of the waterfront itself and the shopping/commercial district highlighted on Queen Street East.

Homes in the area have been historically characterized by Edwardian and Victorian homes. Lately however, we have seen an exciting assortment of condos, town homes and new semi-detached residences that have provided new access to those with a desire to have a Beach address.

With 350 shops, bars and services, The Beach is more than just a community in Toronto, it is a destination.

One of my favorite neighborhoods in Toronto, as it was the first place my wife and I shared a home together.
The key to Bloor West is accessibility to downtown while maintaining a strong separation: drivers enjoy close proximity to both the Gardiner and the 427 and transit users have 5 subway stops to choose from.

One of the most unique and beautiful neighborhoods in Toronto, Cabbagetown (named after the staple grown in the front yards of the homes to the sustain the Irish immigrants of the 1800’s) is bounded by Wellesley Street to the north, Gerrard Street to the south, Sherbourne Street to the west, and the Don River to the east.

The urban landscape is complemented by cafes, retail shops and pubs which can be found on Parliament Street – named after the Parliament Houses of Upper Canada, which sat on the South end of the street.

If you want a history lesson of Toronto, look no further than this wonderful neighborhood. The physical geography and residential architecture in Cabbagetown tell a story of how the original settlements, two wars and a depression shaped this city.

King East is a small glimpse of the history of Toronto; a place where William Jarvis once called home around the footings of George Brown College. Take a stroll through the area and enjoy high end furniture shops, low rise condos and Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market.

King Street West is one of Toronto’s most popular destinations for both visitors and residents alike.

Midtown is one of Toronto’s more desired neighborhoods. Known for its diverse mix of residential products, “Yonge and Eg” offers close proximity to shopping, transit and some of Canada’s finest restaurants.

Two great neighborhoods in North York are Yonge and Sheppard/Bayview and Sheppard.; both of which offer great value per square foot in a wide selection of condos, townhomes and detached houses.
