Neighbourhood snapshot

North York: On top of Toronto

North York is where the condo is king — where developers have created entire neighbourhoods of stunning condominium towers. Several signature developments have been built along the major traffic arteries, especially on Yonge Street and along Sheppard Avenue.

There’s an abundance of theatre and entertainment centres, plus plenty of excellent restaurants and bars. Many, in fact, are handily located in the lower podium floors of major condo complexes.

Hundreds of condo residents in North York are able to do all their shopping, go to a movie or restaurant, or even catch the Subway, all without stepping outdoors. It’s a centre of grand style, the home of major furniture retailers with huge shops that attract shoppers from across the GTA.

North York is car-friendly, with wide streets and quick access to major highways. North York is on the move. North York is for people who are going places.

There is a truly stunning view of downtown up around Sheppard and Yonge, and I guess things are cheaper, but otherwise the hype's a bit thick. ;) It's no downtown, it's a condo ville with diminishing diversity fueled only by commercialism.
