Weston neighbourhood is located in the northwestern corner of Downtown Toronto. It’s also close to the districts of North York and Etobicoke, making it a surprisingly central location for those who who need to quickly travel throughout the GTA.
Its official boundaries are Church Street in the north, Jane Street in the east, Denison Road West in the south, and the Humber River in the west. This is an inclusive area where you can have access to everything you need thanks to its wealth of shopping, green space, and more.
Most of the homes in the area are detached single family homes, which accounted for 58% of total home sales last year. Condos are becoming more prevalent in the region, however, as they accounted for 21% of home sales, with the third most commonly sold home last year being condo townhouses at 13%. The average price over that time was $578,953, which can be broken up into an average freehold price of $759,764 and and average condo price of $362,491.
This is an untapped market that is set to become red hot. This is partially because of its proximity to numerous highways, making the entire GTA at your fingertips. It is only a short drive away from the arterial corner of where the Ontario 410 Expressway meets Highway 27.
The 401 is able to transport you from Mississauga in the west, to North York and Scarborough in the east. It also defines the border in between North York and Downtown Toronto and is famously regarded as he busiest highway in North America.
Highway 27 is a north-south corridor that is able to ferry drivers to the northern city of Vaughan, which is undergoing a major redevelopment.
Vaughan is envisioning its future as the new Downtown North, and they’re aiming to compete with Downtown Toronto as the Golden Horseshoe’s primary employment and residential centre. Vaughan is even the central figure in the TTC’s most recently completed trainline that reaches up to the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre.
For those looking to commute without a car, this is also the setting of the Weston GO Station. This train can carry locals throughout the city, and it reaches Downtown Toronto’s Union Station in just 17 minutes.
There’s plenty of street level transit for local commuters too. These routes include the 52 Line, which runs along Lawrence Avenue West. This route is able to take residents to Lawrence West Station, which connects to the TTC’s Yonge/University Line.
This region is also great if you’re looking to accomplish daily errands without leaving the direct vicinity. One major shopping district is the stretch of Weston Road in between Church Street and Lawrence Avenue West. This is where residents go to visit their local bank branches, restaurants, cafes, pharmacies, and more.
The other major shopping district is the 401 Weston Centre. This shopping centre is anchored by major department stores like Bestbuy, Canadian Tire, and Real Canadian Superstore. Between these two shopping areas, there’s nothing out of reach in this neighbourhood.
This neighbourhood is bordering the Humber River Valley, which also means that there is plenty of green space around. These parks have plenty of pathways ideal for a casual stroll, jog, or bike ride. The Weston Lions Park is located in a natural bend of the river, and it is equipped with numerous sporting facilities including a soccer field, baseball diamond, splash pad, outdoor pool, and four tennis courts.
The Humber River Valley also feeds into the Weston Golf and Country Club. The Scarlett Woods Golf Course and Lambton Golf & Country CLub are also nearby, so you better start working on that swing!
The home prices in this neighbourhood are well below the city average, but this is about to change. Officially in Downtown Toronto, this region is also close to the districts of North York and Etobicoke, which are both burgeoning employment centres. This makes this mostly residential neighbourhood perfect for professional couples who need to travel to different parts of the GTA for work.
This area is also ideal for young families. Between the shopping options on Weston Road and the 401 Weston Centre, there is nothing out of reach. There are also plenty of parks in the region because of the lush greenery of the Humber River Valley. Developers are already taking notice, with projects going up on its major streets.
