Location & Neighbourhood
The location of the development is a top notch, being a short thirteen minute walk to Glencairn Station on the subway’s Line 1 servicing Yonge and University. It will also be nearby the upcoming Forest Hill station along the Eglinton LRT. For further reach across the city, a variety of bus routes will also be accessible from the site.
This will be appealing to students who want to live out of the city but require easy access to Downtown’s major university campuses like Ryerson, University of Toronto and OCAD. York University specifically is minutes away. It’s worth noting this development is bound to attract students as it is less populated than projects immediately by campuses. Additionally, the building’s plentiful two-bedroom units ensure the option for roomates.
Young professionals will also benefit from having seamless access to the entertainment and job hub that is the downtown core, while also being able to be removed. Growing families looking to set roots in the area will also love this development. In addition to its wealth of two bedroom suits for a family’s expanding needs, the site is also nearby schools like Bialik Hebrew Day School.
Although being close to Line 1 ensures access to all the entertainment and culture the city has to offer, the immediate area is also wealthy in weeknight and weekday options for relaxing and exploring. For one, Yorkdale mall is a couple subway stops away and a mere 10 minutes driving.
The centre is packed with a wide variety of retailers to suit all budgets — choices include Aritzia, H&M, TopShop, Uniqlo, Ted Baker, Zara, and Nordstrom among many others. The mall also makes the perfect option for a day adventure. It houses an impressive food selection in the expansive food court as well as restaurants like Joey, Moxies and The Cheesecake Factory. If you’re really looking to fill your day, there is also a movie theatre in the mall.
However, you don’t even need to go to Yorkdale for dining options. The immediate area around the development includes diverse choices like La Mexicana, and Pantry. Food-centric areas like Yonge and Eglinton — and also Yonge and Lawrence — are also a few minutes drive away.
Investors will want to keep their eye on this central location that will appeal to students, young professionals and growing families alike.
