Toronto is one of the most celebrated cities in Canada, if not the world. Known for its diversity and inclusiveness, it supports a person’s right to express their individualism. Toronto’s motto, “Diversity our Strength” speaks to the commitment to the city’s respect for all groups and individuals.
With a population inching towards 3 million, it is the largest city in Canada offering world-class entertainment, arts, and cultural destinations, enticing multi-cultural dining and an ever-changing landscape of eclectic neighbourhoods.
About Toronto and Real Estate
A skyline dotted with cranes is a testament to the city’s growth. Condos seem to pop up wherever a dilapidated building can be torn down or an inch of green space becomes available. The condo market continues to see favourable growth with opportunities for just about everyone whether you are looking to downsize, buy your first home, or considering an investment.
However, the city offers housing of all shapes and sizes from Victorian row houses in Trinity Bellwoods to bungalows in East York and three-story detached houses in the Danforth to mansions in North York. Because of this, home buyers can set their sites on the home that suits their needs and budget. The beauty of Toronto real estate is you will find you are in the heart of it all, with ample amenities to suit any lifestyle.
Toronto Real Estate Market & History
Toronto was incorporated in 1834 under the leadership of the city’s first mayor, William Lyon Mackenzie. It is hard to imagine the city’s boundaries were limited to Bathurst Street in the west, Dundas in the north, and Parliament on the east. However, over time more and more of the surrounding villages and land was annexed greatly expanding to its current boundaries covering 630 square kilometers.
With the arrival of the railroad in the mid-1800’s, the city created major transportation routes across the province and country. As a result, Toronto opened to increased immigration, trade, and industry. Some of the city’s most prosperous sectors have left their mark including the garment industry which is now the Fashion District, distilling which is now the Distillery District and brick making, which is celebrated at the Evergreen Brickworks. Immigration patterns can also be traced by the many cultural neighbourhoods including China Town at Queen and Spadina, Greek Town at Pape and Danforth and Little Italy west of Ossington at College.
Toronto’s diversity is not only celebrated in the people who live here, but also in the number of neighbourhoods it offers. Condos offer the vibrant nightlife, trendy shopping, and dining in the city’s Financial and Distillery Districts, Libertyville, and the Yonge-Church Corridor, but can also offer a quieter lifestyle further north of the downtown core. Heading west you will find the eclectic boutique shops, restaurants, and cafés in areas like Trinity Bellwoods, The Annex, The Junction or Bloor West Village. You can go even further west to quieter, less trendy spots like Mimico and Etobicoke without sacrificing amenities.
To the east you will discover up and coming areas located in the east Don like Leslieville or the ever-popular homes of The Danforth, Riverdale and of course The Beaches. More laid-back areas to the east include East York and Danforth Village. Finally, Uptown Toronto provides an upscale lifestyle with larger homes and high-end shops and restaurants found in Rosedale, Moore Park, Leaside, Davisville Village, Bayview, or the Bridle Path to name a few. Regardless of the area, you will find Toronto neighbourhoods offer a sense of community with an excellent selection of home sizes, styles, and prices.
