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.
