Yonge and Bloor – the busiest intersection in Toronto
Every neighbourhood in Toronto has its own unique character and I personally believe that the neighbourhood brings out your character because you live in the neighbourhood with the things that you like.
I’m a Toronto real estate agent that works in the downtown core and I live in the Yonge and Bloor neighbourhood. To tell you a little about Yonge and Bloor – it’s the busiest intersection of Toronto. There are about 600,000 commuters that go thru this intersection on a daily basis. The two subway lines – Yonge- University and Bloor – Danforth line are the two lines that interchange and bring in traffic.
Since the area is so easily accessible there’s a great mix of young professionals, empty nesters, international students, couples and eligible bachelors that live in.
Minutes away from the University of Toronto – St. George Campus. It’s also minutes away from the Yorkville – Annex where the mayor – John Tory lives.
Yorkville also have the city’s most expensive real estate, the Four Seasons residences, Prince Arthur Residences, The One Hotel Residences, 1 Bedford, Hazelton homes, paring at $1,200 per sq. ft. starting.
Yorkville has some of the finest restaurants from KasaMoto, STK, Dbar, The One, Sassafraz, Blu and Buca. The area is known to cater to the more mature and established crowd. Besides Pusateri’s and Whole Foods that are already in Yorkville.
There will be two high end supermarkets coming into Yonge and Bloor – Eataly – which is going to be in the Manulife building and McEwan which is going to be located at 1 Bloor. Nordstrom is also in the process of opening up another location at 1 Bloor. The best thing about Yonge and Bloor is that the neighborhood has 100% walking, biking and transit score.
With regards to real estate there will be two major projects that are going to be going up on Yonge and Bloor this year.
- One Bloor Street East – Move in Ready
- The One by Mizrahi – which is on 1 Bloor Street West
- The Charles on Church which is by Aspen Ridge Homes.
The real estate development in both the commercial and residential side of Yonge and Bloor makes this the best neighbourhood to live in because of the walking score and easy access to transportation.
