Welcome to Danforth Village
Danforth Village is well known for its shopping district along Danforth Avenue. The Danforth's many shops and restaurants reflect the multicultural flavour of the residents who live in this neighbourhood.
The relative affordability of the houses in Danforth Village, together with the convenience of the Bloor-Danforth subway line make this neighbourhood an excellent choice for first time home buyers.
According to Corinne McCabe, broker with Bosley Real Estate Ltd., and valued neighbourhood sponsor of Danforth Village: "Danforth Village is a wonderful spot to live that just happens to be smack dab in the easiest commuter pocket on the East side of town. We’ve got Greenwood, Coxwell, Woodbine and Main subway stations, and the Danforth GO train, which zips you to Union in no time at all. Need to go to the airport?, then transfer to the UP Express. And just wait until the Smart Track goes in. This will surely be the place to be if it isn’t already!
For years this was the cheaper side of Toronto, where buyers could get more bang for their buck, but we’ve seen huge price growth on the East side over the last few years asthe market has tightened up. This has meant a lot of younger families moving in and renovating their properties. The streetscape is changing, that’s for sure. That’s not theonly change… Carmelina Condos has been up and lived in for a while now, and both On The Danforth and Canvas Condos have started their land prep with construction tofollow this spring. These two boutique condominium buildings in particular will change the landscape along the Danforth, and bring some much-needed commercialimprovement to the area. I’m passionate about Danforth Village because I live here. I bought my house in 2007 after moving out of busy, popular Leslieville. I wanted a house near a park for my dog, and a quieter street for my sanity. Now I have both. Wonderful neighbours and the best Italian grocer anyone could ask for… Vincenzo’s. Try it"
