Finding just the right neighbourhood for you.
The search for the perfect neighbourhood often starts with just plain instinct. If you are familiar with the city of Toronto, you may know a few of the communities and what they offer – and what they don’t. And you may have a sense of connection to some of those neighbourhoods. Of course a lot really depends on what you’re looking for – what lifestyle or “stage of life” you’re currently planning for with your next move.
Toronto Life Magazine recently evaluated 140 different neighbourhoods in the Toronto area. Housing, Crime, Transit, Shopping and Health were the top 5 categories. See what they say Toronto Life Neighbourhood Rankings
Yonge and Eglinton ranks number one.
Using the same criteria as their previous study in 2013, Toronto Life Magazine found the city has changed dramatically in terms of desirable neighbourhoods to live in. Rosedale, one of the most sought-after and the prevailing highest ranking community in Toronto, plummeted from top spot down to number 18 based on their rating system.
The neighbourhood with the highest scores turns out to be Yonge and Eglinton. Coincidentally, this is where the Lash Group decided to create their newest condo development – Distinction Condos. Just slightly northeast of Forest Hill and just south of Lawrence Park sits this thriving community with all the right ingredients for living. From affordability, increasing value, mixed housing types and transit, Yonge and Eglinton just makes a lot of sense for anyone looking for their next home.
Mount Pleasant Road is a three minute walk from Distinction Condos. There you will find groceries, fresh flowers, cafes, fine dining and plenty of innovative and unique stores that you won’t find anywhere else in the city.
