A recent revitalization of The Junction’s real estate and retailers has it dubbed one of the most promising up-and-coming areas in Toronto.
The neighbouring communities of High Park, Baby Point, and Corso Italia surround The Junction with prestigious properties, ample recreational spaces, and popular restaurants.
THE REAL ESTATE
First-time homebuyers and young families favour The Junction real estate for its affordable prices and prime location. This ever-changing neighbourhood is home to plenty original single family Victorian houses from the early 1900s. Condominium developments and warehouse conversions show the rapid development and rising popularity of The Junction’s real estate.
WHERE TO RELAX
With less than a mile to High Park, residents of this neighbourhood can easily enjoy the park’s lush fields and amenities. For something a bit closer to home, there’s Baird Park. Also home of the West Toronto Lawn Bowling Club, this community park features an off-leash dog park, a children’s playground, and a wading pool.
WHERE TO EAT
If you’re looking to grab a drink in The Junction, then head to everyone’s local favourite, The Hole In The Wall– which is anything but. Located on Dundas Street West, this hidden gem serves up craft beers, classic drinks, hearty dinners, and Sunday brunch with a constantly changing menu. For a taste of country life, head to Farmhouse Tavern, where you’ll find local beers, wines, and farm-fresh foods. Looking for a caffeine fix? Don’t miss a visit to Propeller Coffee, a stunning converted warehouse, coffee roasting facility, cafe, and event rental space.
WHERE TO SHOP
Shoppers travel from across Toronto to check out the latest shipment at Smash Salvage. Unique fixtures and vintage furniture fill the shop, with inventory constantly changing to showcase different pieces like old restaurant signage, antique artwork and one-of-a-kind lighting.
