It’s the centre of the banking and stock exchange

Imagine living in a city that is the banking and stock exchange centre of the entire country. Toronto is the primary point of distribution of wholesale goods. This is no surprise, Ontario’s wealth is incredible when it comes to raw materials, hydroelectric power and manufactured goods.

Since the 1970s, Toronto has surpassed any other Canadian city in this category and the Greater Toronto Area actually produces more than half of Canada’s manufactured goods! This has contributed to Toronto’s growth as a whole creating countless work opportunities and a busy but spirited air in the city.

Moving to Toronto

 Are you planning to move to Toronto? According to the Economist’s 2015 list of ‘Most Livable Cities’, Toronto ranked at the top! Toronto offers a meld of modernism, multiculturalism, friendly boroughs to spend your time in and great places to live. Here is a list of what makes Toronto as a whole, an appealing place to live.

Visual Appeal

Toronto mirrors a host of qualities that are similar to New York City. Its visual infrastructure including the TTC subway stations, the city’s shimmering skyscrapers and lively places like Dundas Square, pay homage to the big apple, while rightfully standing on its own.

The city also has a plethora of natural spaces like parks, trails and of course the great lakes. Many people like to spend their time outdoors in this city at local parks and spots like High Park, Ward’s Island, the eastern beaches, the Glen Stewart Ravine and the Scarborough Bluffs.

Expansive Transit System

Toronto is really well connected by the TTC, which offers an expansive subway line, streetcars and buses to get around. The city is pretty accessible which allows you to live in the inner city without having a car. If you choose to use transit and walking as your main mode of transportation, we suggest you live close by to a subway line! Toronto is quite wide and it can take time getting around – good thing the city is equipped with effective transit so you can get around easily!

Education and Job Opportunities

Toronto is really seen for its diversity as it brings people from all over the world for work and study. The city has some of the best universities in the country including the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, The Ontario College of Art and Design and Wilfred Laurier University to name a few, on top of countless specialized colleges that offer schooling for an array of vocations.

In terms of work, Toronto is considered to be an economic powerhouse in Canada. Industry sectors that bring people from all over the world include design, fashion, film, education, financial services, food and beverage, environmental and life sciences, music, technology and tourism!

Living in Mid-Town Toronto

Mid-town Toronto encompasses a large stretch of Yonge Street north of the city from Rosedale up to Lawrence. There’s an abundance of choice when it comes to choosing a neighborhood and a place to live in this area.

Neighborhoods like Summerhill, St. Clair, Davisville and Eglinton have formed and matured around the TTC subway, making midtown Toronto a really accessible place to live by transit. The TTC subway serves midtown neighborhoods up until 2AM and then the 300 Bloor-Danforth bus takes over the night route, making it easy to get to and from the area at any time.

Midtown is known to have quieter intersections and streets but is not short of new condominiums, restaurants, bars and patios. For those who seek more of the party atmosphere, downtown is not far from home!

The Neighborhoods

Rosedale and Summerhill

This area is considered “Yonge Street’s poshest stretch.” The main concept of this area is food and décor. It attracts a lot of shoppers as its peppered with clothing boutiques, furniture stores, beauty parlours and the like. There are also many restaurants and bars in the area along with natural green spaces such as parks and sporting clubs for those who need a breath of fresh air outside!

St. Clair
A busier area home to many restaurants and bars, it is busy till late throughout the week. The west strip between Bathurst and Oakwood is known for its diverse population – a mix of young professionals who run startups and local businesses and older crowds who run classic and authentic mom-and-pop shops.

Davisville

Davisville is a quieter intersection between St.Clair and Eglinton. It’s known for a having a highly multi-cultural air and features restaurants from a range of cuisines along both sides of Yonge Street. Mount Pleasant cemetery is a landmark in the area that creates a nice stretch of natural space for active joggers and cyclists in the area. It is also the dividing line between the Davisville neighborhood and the south-side of St. Clair.

While it’s mostly a residential area that features a few local parks and walking and running paths, it is known for its good pubs, commercial buildings, and the Kay Gardener Beltline – an old and non-functional railway line.

Eglington

Eglinton is considered one of the busiest corners along Yonge Street and is the central neighborhood of midtown Toronto. It features most of the commercial centers in the area such as shopping centers, gyms, and cinemas along with busy restaurants and bars.

This area is the most similar to downtown. If you like a high-energy lifestyle, this is a great place to live. It is dubbed as “Young and Eligible” since it houses many newcomers to the city – particularly those who come to Toronto to attend College / University and decide to make Toronto their permanent home!

Living in the Distillery District

Do you want to wake up to the sight of wonderfully preserved Victorian Industrial Architecture? The Distillery Historic District is one of the most up and coming neighborhoods in Toronto. It features a unique set of pedestrian-only walkways with restored brick buildings that define this area with a horse-and-carriage charm.

Background

Over a decade ago, a small group of developers had a vision to combine romance and relaxation in one atmosphere. As a result, they created a set of European-style walking districts complete with attractions that appeal to the senses. The idea was to create a dynamic similar to New York City’s SoHo, to inspire creative minds from all walks of life to meet. They planned to restore 47 buildings known as the Gooderham & Worts Distillery.

Hundreds of tradesmen and craftsmen worked with 19th century materials to restore and repurpose the original materials, mixing them with modern day architecture.  Over 600,000 red brick pavers were laid to make the cobblestone roads and with the application of digital green technologies – this project became an innovative blend of old and new.

Where to live: Gooderham Condominiums

When you walk through this area, you can feel the lively combination of design, arts, culture and entertainment. There are endless creative venues like theatres, galleries and artisanal shops along with restaurants, boutiques and unique cafes that are open to the public. This makes it the perfect atmosphere for work, play and living.

A recent development called The Gooderham Condos  is located on Mill Street and Cherry Street in Toronto. It has become some of the newest housing offered in the distillery district.

This condo…

  • Has a total of 328 units and 36 stories
  • Units range in size from 493 to 2077 sq. ft
  • Amenities include: gym, pool, yoga studio, media room, patio with BBQ and a 24h concierge

In terms of location it is…

  • accessible via public transit and is a short distance from Gardiner, Lakeshore and DVP
  • a short distance away from Front Street shops and St. Lawrence Market
  • in close proximity to the financial, entertainment and shopping districts
  • in close proximity to the Toronto Islands
  • will be connected to the East Bayfront and West Don Lands making the waterfront accessible by bike trails

Since its doors opened in 2003, the distillery district has become a pivotal point of entertainment and tourism in the city. It offers the feel of a cozy, quaint town that offers elegance, sophistication and fun – you never know who you could meet!

High-Rise vs. Low-Rise Apartments: What’s better for you?

When looking for your next place to live, finding a type of property that suits your lifestyle preferences is integral to your happiness – whether you’re planning to live there for a short period of time or for the long-term.

Consider who you are: Are you a single young professional or a pair of young professionals? Does direct access to the centre of the city mean something to you or do you prefer living away from it? And of course, take into consideration if you’re planning on raising a family any time soon or if you are already raising one and what’s best for your budget.

Here are some pros and cons for renting a high-rise or a low-rise apartment.

Pros of High Rises

  • They are mostly located in the centre of the city – this could improve the commute to your workplace.
  • It is easier to find variety and vacancies
  • There are more leasing options
  • Many include a variety of amenities in the apartments (like furniture and appliances) and in the building like laundry, pools, small grocery stores and convenience stores that are sometimes located within the building itself
  • They almost always have a working elevator
  • They often include live-in supervisors, doormen and even security agents (depending on the building) to ensure all your needs are met

Cons of High Rises

  • High-rise apartments tend to be busier since they accommodate a larger amount of people
  • They involve more social interaction – and this can deter renters who like more privacy
  • High-rise apartments tend to be more expensive and sometimes finding the right price margin can be difficult
  • It can take longer to get down to the street to your car or public transportation
  • Private outdoor space is limited or sometimes nonexistent

Pros of Low-Rise Apartments

  • Cheaper to rent and price is often negotiable
  • Tend to be quieter since low-rises are located in quieter residential areas
  • They are offer more options for privacy (there’s a spectrum to choose from)
  • They are closer to the street – this makes it easier to access a car and public transportation

Cons of Low-Rise Apartments

  • They are often farther from downtown areas – which could mean a longer commute
  • There are fewer units available – depending on the area they can be harder to come by as they are in demand
  • Most units come without extra appliances or furniture
  • Phone, internet, utilities etc. have to be set up by the tenant
  • Offer less amenities by the ways of pools, and fitness centres however some low-rises have laundry and gardens
  • Supervisors and property managers rarely live in the building – if they do, they aren’t always easy to get a hold of
  • Parking is often not included and is an added expense

With this in mind, you can make the right decision for your needs and desires.

Raising Your Family in a Loft

It’s getting harder and harder to find practical downtown housing. It can be exhausting looking for a place where your family can still enjoy the perks of city life without sacrificing the privacy you deserve. In recent years, it’s becoming more and more common for families to live in downtown lofts. It’s a modern housing alternative that provides the convenience of downtown life but with the peace and solitude that’s important for families.  Here are just a few reasons why more families are starting their families in downtown loft.

Downtown Amenities

The biggest benefit of having a loft as a family is the convenience. Most lofts have grocery stores, shopping centres, restaurants, or movie theatres within a very short distance, if not within the building itself. Having all these different amenities close by means that you can spend more time with your family and less time driving around doing errands. Another benefit of living so close to diverse downtown attractions is that there is always something to do. Take your kids to a movie, a museum, or the mall—your family will never be bored with all the amenities of downtown at your fingertips. With schools, libraries, and community centres all close by, your children can enjoy an enriching upbringing conveniently in a downtown loft.

Safe and Secure Home

Some people worry about the safety of raising children downtown. Lofts feature the latest in security measures, so you can rest assured that your family will be protected. Our lofts have state-of-the-art locks for the front entrance and individual suites, 24/7 front desk concierge and security, and camera protection, so no unwanted visitors will be allowed on the premise. Your comfort is our number one priority.

The idea that lofts aren’t big enough to house a family is a thing of the past. Lofts are now being built to accommodate the spatial needs of families. Loft units come in various sizes, so you can find the one that’s right for you. Get the room you need while taking advantage of all the city has to offer by raising your family in a downtown loft. If your family is interested in a modern way of living, contact us today and we’ll help turn your dream loft into a home.
