Location & Neighbourhood
Leslieville condominiums are less common in comparison to some of the neighbourhoods closer to downtown where we see rapid growth and dense corridors of high-rise towers, but this east-end pocket has still seen an increase in modern boutique buildings, townhomes and trendy lofts.
It’s an eclectic neighbourhood that’s been defined as a “strategic growth area,” in the province’s growth plan and is primed for mixed-use intensification that takes advantage of the neighbourhood’s access to streetcar routes, restaurants and services.
It has a warm, neighbourly feel and has become increasingly popular with young families, as well as with students, artists and young professionals.
This neighbourhood has an almost perfect Walk Score of 85/100 and an excellent Transit Score of 73/100. The Queen streetcar runs 24/7, taking you as far east as the idyllic Woodbine Beach and as far west as Etobicoke. It’s about a twenty-minute trip into the downtown core, making it a great neighbourhood for the professional who wants easy access to some of downtown’s employment areas, yet craves a quirky neighbourhood to come home to.
