Toronto’s Harbourfront community is a great neighbourhood just on the outskirts of downtown Toronto. Located on the northern shore of Lake Ontario, it is a unique part of Toronto’s Waterfront and extends west from Yonge Street to Bathurst Street along the beautiful Queens Quay. Toronto’s Harbourfront is somewhat of a tourist area, especially during the summer months, but locals have really made this community their own. Recent waterfront revitalization spearheaded by local government and businesses has helped to rejuvenate the area in recent years and new hotels and restaurants have also attracted visitors and real estate buyers.
Harbourfront real estate is made up almost entirely of condominiums. In fact, the area has the highest concentration of luxury condominium apartment buildings in the City of Toronto, with many of them built in the 1980s offering fantastic views of Lake Ontario. Both a unique and exclusive pocket in the downtown core, Queens Quay condominiums offer some of the most breathtaking and incredible views in the city of Toronto. With many condominium options to choose from, the Harbourfront is a popular option for buyers.
Hosting an extensive program of arts and cultural events throughout each summer, including craft and artisan fairs, theatre and dance performances and musical concerts, the area is full of excitement and activity. With a music garden, numerous wavedecks, the HTO urban beach, and the Martin Goodman Trail, the neighborhood is always vibrant and full of leisurely options. There's also the summer festivals at Harbourfront, ongoing exhibitions at the Power Plant and the all-important ferry terminal providing access to the Toronto Islands, home to car free living, bike paths, a nude beach and some of the city's best summer music festivals.
The neighboorhood is also home to Tip Top Lofts, the only loft conversion on the Harbourfront. With not much room for further development and high demand, Toronto's Harbourfront has proved to be a stable long term acquisition for buyers.
