Yonge and Bloor NEIGHBOURHOOD GUIDE
60 Homes for sale | 57 Homes for rent
Young professionals and public transit users looking for turnkey Toronto condo living with everything at your doorstep.
Yonge and Bloor has become the unofficial jewel in the crown of downtown Toronto and a big draw for urban professionals looking to live where they work and play.
Although not an official neighbourhood (depending on which side of the intersection you live on it could be Yorkville, Rosedale or the Church St. Corridor), the few blocks surrounding the intersection of Yonge and Bloor have forged an identity of their own thanks to a ton of swank, new Toronto condo developments and some of the best shopping in the city.
There’s a real split of older and brand new Yonge and Bloor condos. Depending on your tastes and real estate goals, there’s great value to be had in older, larger fixer-uppers in the area and the latest finishes and designs found in various new build condos under development.
Yonge and Bloor offers easy access to both the Yonge and University subway lines and so it’s ideal for most commuters who work near a major subway station. There are also a number of shopping plazas connected underground, so you can avoid the elements when needed.
Why We Love Yonge and Bloor
It Has Some Seriously Stylish Neighbours
For those just starting their property journeys, how often can you buy a starter condo and live next to some of the most exclusive neighbourhoods and most expensive homes in Toronto? Whether a Rosedale home for sale (i.e. mansion) is within your property reality or not, they make for great eye candy.
Both Yorkville and Rosedale make for excellent Sunday strolls. If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle at times, there’s a great bike path through the Rosedale Ravine Trail system just a little further north.
It’s Well Connected
If you’re a public transit user and/or like to walk places, Yonge and Bloor is a seriously connected location to call home. With multiple street-level and underground shopping options, various major bank branches, Varsity Cinema at the 55 Bloor St W plaza and tons of restaurants, cafés and pubs, you never have to wander far from home for both your daily necessities and an active night life.
Plus, with easy access to the subway heading in all direction (north, south, east and west bound), you can explore the rest of the city with ease.
