The 99 WalkScore Neighbourhood
In Downtown Toronto, roughly defined as south of Bloor Street, pretty much everything an urban dweller could wish for is within walking distance. Many residents choose not to own cars due to the convenience of Toronto’s subway and streetcar system on their doorstep.
Yonge Street is Toronto’s main artery and offers every kind of retail outlet from one of Canada’s largest malls, the Eaton Centre, to tacky souvenirs. It is home to several of Toronto’s major theatres and specialist cinemas, including Massey Hall, the Elgin & Winter Garden theatres, and the Magic Lantern Carlton Cinema.
Bloor Street West is known both for its upscale shopping, dining and lively arts community. The Royal Ontario Museum and the George R. Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art are on your doorstep at Avenue Road and Bloor.
Need a respite from the hustle and bustle? There are a surprising number of large outdoor green spaces within walking distance, including Queens’ Park and the University of Toronto to the west, Allan Gardens and the Rosedale Ravine to the east. Green trails for walker and cyclists abound.
Our newest listing at 24 Wellesley Street West, Suite 1002 is in the heart of downtown.
