Location & Neighbourhood
East Junction Condos is located at in Carleton Village have the benefit of being of a great neighbourhood. Quirky, leafy and family-friendly with a growing arts and cultural base, it’s part of a larger area of the west end that’s seen some unique developments in the past few years.
While not transforming at the rapid rate of some neighbourhoods, we’ve seen a steady increase in more modern projects, many of which reflect the area’s rich industrial roots.
Nearby, a multi-phase project involving 200 townhomes, the conversion of a heritage factory into residential lofts and a future plan for a park and three condominium towers have put the neighbourhood on the map.
A short walk away from the Symington development is another recent multi-tower condo project, anchored by a grocery store.
It’s a neighbourhood that’s been gaining popularity with a selection of trendy retailers, artisan cafes and, which we suspect will continue as the transformation continues. The Walk Score is 73/100, making it easy to run daily errands on foot.
It’s also served well by transit, with 24-hour bus routes along both Dupont Street and Davenport Road. It’s a short bus ride to the Dundas West transit hub, which connects you to multiple streetcar lines, the GO train, Dundas West subway station and the Union Pearson Express, which runs between the airport and Union Station in the city’s financial district.
This is a connected, quaint and community-oriented pocket to invest in.
