Victoria Village Neighbourhood
Victoria Village neighbourhood is located on the Scarborough side of the Toronto-Scarborough border. This means that the western boundaries are defined by the Don Valley Parkway, making the entire GTA right at your fingertips. Soon, with the arrival of the Eglinton Crosstown, those who take public transit will also be able to get around the city from this neighbourhood. The area is defined by low-rise residential housing, as well as the Charles Sauriol Conservation Area.
The western border of this Neighbourhood is the Don Valley Parkway. This arterial roadway is perhaps one the most vital routes in Toronto. It is connected to the Ontario 404, meaning that it acts as the major gateway for the city. The Don Valley can connect residents to Markham, Richmond Hill, and beyond towards Ottawa and Montreal. Heading south, the Don Valley links up with the Gardiner Expressway, which is the easiest way to make it across downtown Toronto, as well as Mississauga and Brampton. This all adds up to being a great place to live for drivers.
It’s about to become a great destination for those who take public transit too. The southern border of this neighbourhood is along Eglinton Avenue East. There’s nothing here yet, but soon the Eglinton Crosstown LRT will streak across this street and create an access point to the entire city. Residents will be able to get access to the LRT via the Wynford Station that will be located at the intersection of Wynford Drive and Eglinton Avenue East. It is scheduled to be completed for 2020.
The Charles Sauriol Conservation Area is the most prominent feature in Victoria Park. This massive green space thrives due to the Don River, and it is spectacularly dense. It also has the ability to hide any hint of urbanity away from its visitors. It has several biking and walking trails, so it is a popular venue for Torontonians who are looking to escape their hectic lives.
Locals get most of their shopping done at either the CF Shops at Don Mills or the SmartCentres Scarborough. The CF Shops have a comprehensive directory. They are equipped with numerous services, apparel stores, restaurants and specialty stores. It is also the location of the local cinema, which is outfitted with VIP service. The SmartCentre is the venue that has the larger department stores. It is anchored by a Walmart Supercentre, and it also has a Sport Chek, Canadian Tire, and Best Buy. Between these two shopping centres, we doubt there will ever be anything you can’t find!
The homes sales in this area were mostly for detached houses last year, accounting for 58% of total home sales, followed by condos with 30%. The average price during this time was $759,525, which is a 6% increase over last year’s sales. This can be broken down to an average freehold price of $1,144,008, and an average condo price of $379,992. These numbers say that while low-rise housing has been the traditional choice of this neighbourhood, the decision to live in condos is becoming increasingly popular.
This is a beautiful neighbourhood that is full of great shopping, vibrant wildlife, and unequalled access to highways. Soon, the Eglinton Crosstown LRT is going to bring more public transit to the area. This will provide existing residents with better access to downtown, but it’s also going to bring development to the area. This means that there will be more employment opportunities, as well as an influx of small businesses in the region. This is an opportunity to invest in an area that has one of the most untouched pieces of green space, and one that’s about to get a whole lot closer to downtown.
