Location & Neighbourhood
Condos in Toronto’s Fashion District have a unique appeal. The neighbourhood has strong historical roots, having been the center of the city’s garment and textile manufacturing industry in the early twentieth century. Its influence can still be seen in the many art deco-style warehouses lining the stretch, many of which have been converted into residential lofts, art galleries, restaurants or office space for creative and technology-based businesses.
In the past few years, we’ve seen more contemporary condominiums popping up here too, as young professionals begin to favour the area for its proximity to trendy neighbourhoods like West Queen West, Chinatown and the Entertainment District. Many of these are mid-rise buildings, designed to complement the area’s existing streetscape.
In the Fashion District, you’ll find a selection of trendy bars, cafes and boutiques, making it a great pocket of the city to start or end your day. With all of these trendy developments nearby, this location is awarded a perfect 100 on its Walk Score, this means that you can accomplish your daily errands without the use of a car.
The city has designated this portion of its downtown as a “regeneration area,” which allows for a wide range of uses, including residential, commercial and light industrial.
Despite the trend for mid-rise and boutique buildings here, a seven-acre redevelopment is proposed for the southern part of the neighbourhood that will see seven towers, significant office space, a retail galleria and pedestrian mews. We love the idea of investing in property near large-scale mixed-use projects, as it adds value and presents even more opportunities to work, shop and enjoy the public realm in a modern setting.
Easily one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods in Toronto. Further west towards Bathurst, Queen Street feels more like a residential neighbourhood, with a few cafes and a grocery store.
This stretch is due to undergo a significant revitalization, as a large parking lot at the corner of Portland street is being developed into a mix retail and residential units.The Fashion District has plenty of fabric shops, Mom and Pop diners and coffee shops. Juice bars and trendy gourmet burger joints are also nearby.
The neighbourhood scores a perfect 100/100 on its Transit Score, thanks to its close proximity to three streetcar lines. Both the King and Queen cars are steps away and it’s only a few minutes’ ride into the Financial District or other high-density employment areas. The Spadina car connects you directly with the Bloor subway line to the north, as well as Union Station and the waterfront to the south. Post secondary school students will find this living destination ideal especially because OCAD University and George Brown campuses are a short distance away. Additionally, the area's world class transportation options offer short commutes to both Ryerson University and the University of Toronto.
This is your chance to invest in a truly cosmopolitan location with a compelling historical appeal.
