The real estate agency also offers multiple Etobicoke condos for sale. To understand why people are so eager to live in this area, we need to learn what motivates them to want to live in Etobicoke.
Here’s what we’ve learned.
#1 Low population density
Considering the times we live in, less is better, at least regarding population. Around 365,000 people live in Etobicoke, which is not much for a big area of 123.93 km2. That means you can still get that spacious feeling that has always been a big part of the charm surrounding this area.
Etobicoke has always been known for its lavish landscapes and natural beauty that surrounds it and is a big part of it. There are many parks and green spaces integrated within the area. Some of the best-known parks and green areas are Centennial Park, Humber Bay Park, Colonel Samuel Smith Park, and James Gardens. Then, there is the St. George Country and Golf club that is ranked as one of the world’s best golf clubs.
Etobicoke offers easy access to Highway 409, Highway 401, Highway 427, Gardiner Expressway, and QEW. Plus, Pearson Airport is just a twenty-minute drive from Etobicoke. There are three GO Transit Stations within the Etobicoke community: Etobicoke North, Long Branch, and Mimico. As far as TTC Subway Stations are concerned, the residents of this area have at their disposal Kipling Station, Islington Station, Royal York Station, and Old Mill Station.
#4 Shopping and dining
The go-to area for major shopping is Sherway Gardens. This shopping area is located south of the Queensway and is full of big box stores.
Those interested in independent restaurants and shops head to Lake Shore Boulevard and Bloor Street West. For great dining and drinks, residents of the Etobicoke area go to Momiji sushi on Bloor St.West, JOEY in Sherway Gardens, Cactus Club Cafe, San Remo Bakery located on Royal York Road, and so on.
#5 Its proximity to downtown
Not only that the area is well-connected to the rest of the town, but it is very close to downtown Toronto. None of your friends will stop visiting you just because you live “too far.”
#6 You don’t have to break the bank
Unlike many other neighborhoods, you don’t have to shell out a massive chunk of your salary every month to live in Etobicoke. South Etobicoke is a neighborhood where a decent condo can be found that won’t eat away a big chunk of your monthly income.
#7 Wide selection of new condos
The best part about living in Etobicoke is that there is something for everyone, from big open-concept gyms to dog-washing stations, and pretty much anything in between. There is a wide selection of condos of all sizes and amenities to suit any budget and preferences.
