King West NEIGHBOURHOOD GUIDE
69 Homes for sale | 68 Homes for rent
King West is known for its condos just as downtown Toronto is. In fact, it's been dubbed "Condo Nation". But unlike The Core, there's a greater variety in King West homes for sale.
You can find houses for sale in Toronto King West along residential side streets; typically Victorian row-houses in need of restoration. That said, the lucky few who score one of the rare, historic King West houses for sale and are willing to put in a little elbow grease (and some renovation bucks) can create a rare dream home in the heart of one of Toronto’s most coveted, central neighbourhoods.
For those interested in condos, entry price for this neighbourhood is slightly higher than some other central areas like the downtown core and CityPlace however, your options are more diverse and re-sale tends to be quick in this high-demand location.
King West condos include the Fashion House Condos with its edgy, glass design and 75 Portland with stylish Phillipe Stark interiors that both speak to the area’s fashion industry roots.
There are also a number of King West townhouses that make great starter family-homes when the freehold market is out-of-reach budget-wise. The older townhomes near the Niagara area and those closer to Liberty Village offer particularly good bang for your buck.
Young professionals who love a high-energy, urban lifestyle and are looking for a little more character in their properties than The Core typically offers.
King West is often compared to SoHo in New York. This is one of Toronto’s most popular areas for young professionals and those who are young at heart.
The King West neighbourhood is an excellent choice for buyers who are as focused on their social lives as they are on their careers. It has plenty of residential and office buildings but is best known for its restaurants, bars and clubs.
Why We Love King West
Its Nightlife is Unbeatable
If you enjoy going out with friends to restaurants and bars, there really is no better neighbourhood.
There are countless top-end restaurants, stylish bars and clubs to explore, so much so that people often commute from outside of the city on evenings and weekends just to enjoy this unrivalled party scene.
We’re Big TIFF Fans
If you’re a film buff, you’ll understand why TIFF ranks as one of the best things about this area.
The Toronto International Film Festival runs from early to mid September each year, and although its events are spread across the city, the hub is the TIFF Bell Lightbox on King West. There are lots of other film fests, film-inspired exhibitions and special events held by TIFF throughout the year.
You Can Cheat on Your Neighbourhood
King West is a fantastic location because you have the Entertainment District to the east with its amazing theatres and restaurants, and Queen West to the north with its indie vibe. So you can see a big-stage musical one night and discover a new, local band in an intimate bar the next, all within walking distance from home.
