Yonge and Sheppard have been a great spot for condo development in Toronto and it isn’t stopping anytime soon. Even with all this attention and development, the prices are still competitive because many people feel it is too far up north but with the TTC and line 1 right there you won’t be struggling to stay connected. Yonge and Sheppard also has a great nightlife, with a lot of different things to check out around the area including the Meridian Arts Centre (formerly Toronto Centre for the Arts).
Leslieville is an old neighbourhood that’s growing and developing more. Perfect if you prefer a quieter family-friendly environment and with downtown only 20min away by streetcar or a quick drive getting out is easy and effortless. Leslieville isn’t just a residential area though, locals will boast about the many restaurants and vintage fashion and furniture spots.
Birch Cliff has a great location, being along lake Ontario with a picturesque neighbourhood it’s great for families. Homes are expensive around here but the condo market is much more competitive with a huge boom of development along Birch Cliffs main street. If you love hiking or biking birch cliff just a hike away from exploring the Scarborough Bluffs. Birch Cliff is a great place to get a condo if you’re looking for a family-oriented neighbourhood.
Downsview is starting to pick up and develop so if you can deal with the growing pains of the neighbourhood you’ll be rewarded with a great price for a nice condo.
