Looking to buy a home or condo in the Junction in Toronto's West End?
The name of this Toronto neighbourhoood dates back to a time when the train played a much larger role in the daily lives of Toronto residents. The Junction neighbourhood (originally West Toronto Junction) was so named at the turn of the century because it is the meeting points of several railway lines. Historically the boundaries of the Junction neighbourhood covered a larger area, but today the name “The Junction” is applied to the area north of Annette, south of the CP rail corridor (just above Dundas) & between Runnymede Road and the CN corridor to the east.
The Junction BIA & the city have helped revitalize the historic & charming main streetscape along Dundas St. W. with period style lights and signage. Art galleries, restaurants & funky cafes, organic grocers (Organic Garage & Sweet Potato) & bars have taken up residence along Dundas St. W to service the young families and singles that have been attracted to the area because of its proximity to the core, great schools & parks and generally more affordable prices than neighbouring areas like High Park or Bloor West! Bloor west Village shops, High Park, itself, and the Bloor subway line are a comfortable 10-15 minute walk away.
The narrow well treed streets of the neighbourhood are lined with well preserved Victorian and Edwardian homes built between 1880 and 1910. Some have been converted to 2 and 3 unit dwellings over the years. There are several" hard & soft" loft buildings in the area , as well as large newer high rise condos (Heintzman Place) on the former Canadian Tire site near Keele/Dundas- and other projects in the works!
