This part of town, which is overrun with suits, traffic and office towers, is taking a turn and is on its way to becoming a full-fledged residential neighbourhood.
The boom in condo construction that is giving the monstrous corporate towers a run for their money, is giving the heavens-reaching skyline a bit of a different look.
The Trump Tower, Aura, Shangri-La, U Towers and The Britt Residences (among many others) have opened new possibilities for young professionals, families and fledging urbanites to call the core home.
The redevelopment of this corridor is now letting prospective home buyers to REALLY live in the heart of it all. Restaurants? More than you could go to in a lifetime. Shopping? Some of the city's best. Protests, events and TIFF? All at your doorstep. Theatre, groceries, sports? Check, check and, if you like Toronto teams, check. People come from far and wide to visit Toronto's bustling core. Those who call it home only need to travel a few steps for just about anything they could want.
It's a unique place to call home and the options for doing so continue to grow. Whether you're looking for a small bachelor pad to lay your weary corporate head, a 2 bedroom condo with a view or a multi-million dollar suite with all the bells and whistles, you're in the right place.
