This is a small neighbourhood located in North York. It sits at the intersection of two major roadways, but its accessibility will improve dramatically in coming years as one of the most anticipated projects ever developed by the TTC will drastically improve public transit in the area. Despite its size, the area is a hotbed for cultural and religious institutions, and in many ways it shows off Canada’s proud tradition of multiculturalism. From cultural sophistication to natural beauty, this area has a rich and vibrant green space with diverse wildlife.
Wynford-Concorde is a tiny area, but it has rich cultural significance. It is home to the Aga Khan Museum, and like any other museum it houses a series of artifacts and exhibits, but it also acts as an Islamic cultural centre. It regularly features live performances, and also events for the local community. The Aga Khan Park is adjacent to the museum, and it features a beautiful reflecting pool and lawn. The neighbourhood is also home to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, which hosts a variety of Japanese cultural events, as well as classes in the Japanese martial art of Aikido.
If you’re looking for outdoor adventure, this neighbourhood borders on some tremendous natural green space. Fed by the Don River, the Charles Sauriol Conservation Area is an expansive green space that hosts a variety of plant and animal life. It has numerous bike trails, so you can careen through the peaceful wilderness on your way to work.
This area is part of the Don Mills demographic, and over the past year the area sold mostly condos, which accounted for 65% of sales. This was followed by detached housing, which accounted for 23% of sales. Throughout that time, the average home price was $811,839, which is a 13% increase over the previous year. This breaks down into an average condo price of $499,054, and an average freehold price of $1,718,491.
The neighbourhood rests on the apex of Eglinton Avenue East and the Don Valley Parkway. The Don Valley Parkway provides a direct path to downtown Toronto, while Eglinton slices through the northern section of the city. Excitement is on the horizon as the Eglinton Crosstown LRT is scheduled to be completed in 2020. The Crosstown will add an east-west line in North Toronto. This does so much more than improve transit along Eglinton, it is going to reinvigorate the entire northern half of the city and create new transit, commercial, and residential hubs. This community will get its very own stop with the introduction of Wynford Station.
The neighbourhood is also filled with all of the local amenities you’ll ever need. It has a Real Canadian Superstore - complete with a Beer Store attached! There are also numerous restaurants in the area.
This is a small community, but it has a lot to offer. Residents can enjoy being immersed in a variety of cultures with some of the city’s premier institutions being located here. There is extensive green space due to the dense forest of the Charles Sauriol Conservation Area. This area provides a fantastic chance to experience wildlife inside the City of Toronto. This neighbourhood also features excellent access to arterial roadways that connect residents to the rest of the metropolis, but it’s the Eglinton Crosstown LRT that makes this a truly unique opportunity. The Crosstown is scheduled to open sometime in 2020, and it is sure to catalyze growth all across Eglinton Avenue. With this neighbourhood getting its own station, and many pre-construction condos expected to be completed in the same year, the time to invest in this region is now.
