Location & NeighbourhoodCondos in Toronto’s Fashion District have a unique appeal. The neighbourhood has strong historical roots, having been the center of the city’s garment and textile manufacturing industry in the early twentieth century. Its influence can still be seen in the many art deco-style warehouses lining the stretch, many of which have been converted into residential lofts, art galleries, restaurants or office space for creative and technology-based businesses.
In the past few years, we’ve seen more contemporary condominiums popping up here too, as young professionals begin to favour the area for its proximity to trendy neighbourhoods like West Queen West, Chinatown and the Entertainment District. Many of these are mid-rise buildings, designed to complement the area’s existing streetscape.
In the Fashion District, you’ll find a selection of trendy bars, cafes and boutiques, making it a great pocket of the city to start or end your day.
The city has designated this portion of its downtown as a “regeneration area,” which allows for a wide range of uses, including residential, commercial and light industrial.
Despite the trend for midrise and boutique buildings here, a seven-acre redevelopment is proposed for the southern part of the neighbourhood that will see seven towers, significant office space, a retail galleria and pedestrian mews. We love the idea of investing in property near large-scale mixed-use projects, as it adds value and presents even more opportunities to work, shop and enjoy the public realm in a modern setting.
