An Appealing Location in a Character Neighbourhood
The project’s address at 440 Dufferin Street puts it between two of downtown Toronto’s oldest and best-established neighbourhoods: South Parkdale and Little Portugal. South Parkdale is the southernmost quarter of Parkdale, a formerly independent municipality that was founded in the 1850s and incorporated into the City of Toronto in 1889. Today, South Parkdale is a rapidly gentrifying section of the city that has seen many new restaurants, bars, boutiques, and shops open during the past decade. It is also recognized as one of Toronto’s most ethnically diverse and inclusive neighbourhoods.
Just south Condominiums is the start of the Queen Street West Arts and Fashion District. You will find the Drake Hotel and other venues in walking distance from your new home offering a variety of cultural and community building activities & entertainment events. A wonderful and blooming community to be a part of in the city of Toronto which has been constantly improving over the last decade.
Living in Little Portugal
Little Portugal is a residential enclave that has traditionally been home to a high density of Portuguese Canadian families. Though the neighbourhood’s demographics are changing, it retains strong traces of its established character, with family-run businesses, authentic European-style eateries, and beautiful mid-century homes lining its streets.
Walk Score - 96 / 100
The 440 Dufferin Street location boasts an excellent 96/100 Walk Score and an impressive 93/100 Transit Score. Everyday necessities, amenities, and conveniences are all within easy walking distance, and residents can access outstanding 24-hour transit options on Queen Street West, which can be reached on foot in about two minutes from the development’s proposed location. The condo community will also feature direct connections to the West Toronto Railpath, a multi-purpose paved trail that first opened to the public in 2009.
Drivers will enjoy convenient and straightforward access to Lake Shore Boulevard and the Gardiner Expressway, which has eastbound links to the Don Valley Parkway and direct access to Highways 427 and 401 from its westbound lanes. One of Toronto’s most beloved and popular green spaces, Trinity Bellwoods Park, is also within walking distance of your future Dufferin Street address, and families will benefit from the immediate presence of elementary and high schools in both the public and Catholic education systems.
Overall, the adjoining neighbourhoods have a great deal of historic appeal, and have long attracted a dense concentration of craftspeople and artists due to affordable rents and an abundance of professional work spaces. In recent years, the area has seen a sharp rise in the number of new developments, reflecting increased homeowner and investor interest. Many of these projects have been specially designed and purpose-built to help increase pedestrian traffic and attract new investment as South Parkdale and Little Portugal continue to evolve and improve at rapid rates.
