Location & Neighbourhood
The location of Glenhill Condominiums is top notch, being a short thirteen minute walk to Glencairn Station on the subway’s Line 1 servicing Yonge and University. It will also be nearby the upcoming Forest Hill station along the Eglinton LRT. For further reach across the city, a variety of bus routes will also be accessible from the site.
This will be appealing to students who want to live out of the city but require easy access to Downtown’s major university campuses like Ryerson, University of Toronto and OCAD. York University specifically is minutes away. It’s worth noting this development is bound to attract students as it is less populated than projects immediately by campuses. Additionally, the building’s plentiful two-bedroom units ensure the option for roomates.
Young professionals will also benefit from having seamless access to the entertainment and job hub that is the downtown core, while also being able to be removed. Growing families looking to set roots in the area will also love this development. In addition to its wealth of two bedroom suits for a family’s expanding needs, the site is also nearby schools like Bialik Hebrew Day School.
