Harbourfront NEIGHBOURHOOD GUIDE
42 Homes for sale | 112 Homes for rent
Toronto homes for sale in Harbourfront are almost exclusively condos and there are over a dozen to choose from clustered along Queens Quay West. They're extremely popular with both young professionals looking for their first or second property and empty-nesters looking for downsizing opportunities near the water.
Harbourfront condos with southern exposure and lakefront views are in high demand but due to the sheer volume of units available, prices remain surprisingly affordable. Most buyers would be priced out of comparable waterfront developments in other major international cities around the world but Toronto's waterfront is accessible even to first-time buyers; yet another reason why Toronto is truly one of the world's great, liveable cities.
There are also some great condos for rent in Harbourfront for those not quite ready to buy who still want a taste of lakeside living.
Young professionals and empty nesters who lead an active, outdoor lifestyle and desire condos for sale in Toronto overlooking the waterfront.
Why We Love Harbourfront
Being by the Water is Uplifting
There’s something soothing about being so close to the lake, feeling the cool breezes and watching the boats go by.
Even though it’s a bustling tourist attraction, there are spots along Harbourfront that locals covet for moments of quiet contemplation. Even better if one of those spots is your own condo terrace.
You Can Vacation in Your Own Backyard
Harbourfront has year-round events courtesy of neighbourhood attractions like the Harbourfront Centre and The Power Plant contemporary art gallery. However, its activity levels are dialled way up in the summer including a wide array of festivals.
You can experience international food and music at events like the South Asian Food Festival and Caribbean Island Soul along with events for major holidays like the Canada Day festival. Bonus if you score a condo with a balcony facing the water: you can catch the fireworks from home.
One of the best features of the Harbourfront neighbourhood is that the Toronto Islands are just a short ferry ride away. With blue flag sandy beaches for sunbathing and swimming as well as areas where you can rent barbeques for events, it’s a great day out either solo or with family and friends.
There’s No Excuse Not to Get Active
Whether it’s a stroll along the boardwalk, learning to sail or kayak, or taking the ferry across to Centre Island and renting a bike for a tour, there’s a plethora of outdoor activities to keep you active in the Harbourfront neighbourhood.
For buyers looking for Toronto homes for sale in an active community where people tend to lead a healthy, outdoorsy lifestyle, this is a great neighbourhood choice, providing that you're open to the condo lifestyle.
