Etobicokes neighbourhoods are perfect for those of us who dont want to hear the action of a busy downtown. Its perfect for us who may have done the long commute and have tired of it. Wasted time, high gas prices, traffic caused many of us to rethink commuting.Even the proximity to the Airports makes much more sense to live in Etobicoke vs. The Beaches, Markham, Richmond Hill. After a flight who wants to wade through customs just to hop in the car and drive for an hour to get home. Or pay a taxi fare?
Etobicokes transit is improving to. Soon we will have access directly through Light Rail Train LRT to the Major Airport Lester b. Pearson International. The big Box stores are everpresent and our Major Shopping Mall Sherway Gardens has undergone a multi-million dollar renovation adding Sax Fifth Avenue, Nordstroms, Joeys Seafood, a new Harry Rosen and a H&M plus a brand new Gourmet Fair with all new vendors. Cloverdale Mall is still surviving despite the Target debacle.
So Real Estate continues to grow. Residential is attacking every street and customizing anything thats dated and these days that means anything. Condos are thriving along the Waterfront, the Subway line and the highways. The Kingsway, Lake Shore Blvd West are all reviving with new Restaurants, Pubs, Dance Studios, Coffee Shops etc. Even the Queensway has added many Condos to fit in with the Queensway Cinemas, Costco and Burger Priest and California Sandwiches.
Townhomes both Freehold and Townhomes have increased their values , not as much as detached homes. They are becoming a popular new build especially along Eglinton Avenue.
All this adds up to a diverse foreign investment that is factoring heavily into Etobicoke present and future.
And then it is the trees. Along the boulevards, in Humber Valley, Edenbridge, the Golf Courses Private and Public, in Princess Gardens, Sunnylea, Mimico , along Royal York Rd and of course The Kingsway. Our most affluent trees are in our most affluent neighbourhoods.
