Family Friendly – Community Living

Danforth Condos

Known for having great small-town character, the Danforth is perfectly amenable to family living.  A significant perk to living in this area is never having to travel far to find what you need. In this bustling neighbourhood, the sidewalks are overflowing with colourful planters, fresh local produce, and a myriad of hot shopping spots–both independently owned and big brand stores. The Danforth offers the best of both residential and commercial worlds. It’s a charming neighbourhood that provides a family friendly environment and a thriving area fit for young professionals. Many who are looking to start a family have moved into the area, attracted to the mix of lively, yet family-friendly living. This neighbourhood is proud of its active parent participation in the school system which has welcomed many new families in recent years. All year round you’ll find couples strolling, parents chasing toddlers, cyclists, and dogs stopping for friendly bowls of water as they all make their way down the long, bustling Danforth strip.

Access to Parks & Rec

Nearby, Gledhill Park is a neighbourhood favourite for families who have small children, featuring playground equipment of swings, climbers and slides, all safely enclosed by a fence. Benches allow for those of all ages to sit and take in the views. Kids can enjoy the water in the summer months from the splash and spray pad. Nearby Stanley G. Grizzle Park is another area of note, renamed in 2007 to honour the notable human rights campaigner, Canadian Court of Citizenship judge and author. Stephenson Park has been recently cleaned up by local residents, swiftly becoming a much loved spot to take in nature. Organized waterings of the park’s new trees, evenings of live music, and yoga are a few of the goings on. It even boasts an ice rink in winter months  The popular East Lynn Park is one hectare park on Danforth Avenue. It features a picnic area, a wading pool and a children’s playground. The East Lynn Park’s community-run Farmer’s Market has it all: face painting, kids crafts, cooking with farmers, a variety of kids activities, live concerts and movie nights. Purchase fresh, local fruit, vegetables,meats and dairy products, or ready-to eat goodies from local food vendors. They even feature a rotating selection of Ontario wines for sale and sample.

Midrise (not a highrise)

With mid-rise living, for every square meter, there are fewer residents, making for a more peaceful living space. Aside from a more serene surrounding, mid-rise condos provide greener landscapes. Going up or going down? One of the prime benefits of living in a mid-rise condo is not having to wait long to catch an elevator. Having fewer levels means there are fewer stops. For those who want to keep fit but live a busy lifestyle, using the stairs instead of the elevator is also highly feasible in a mid-rise condo. All-around, mid-rise buildings are more ‘human scale’, creating inherently liveable, sociable environments.

Prime for gentrification – neighbourhood pioneering

Canvas Condos will be in the heart of a diverse and increasingly popular area of Toronto. One of the most charming areas around, the future looks even more friendly and trendy for the Danforth. Transformed to a recent hot spot for young professionals, many noted artists: members of the Toronto Symphony, Canadian Opera, and film and television performers alike also reside here. The neighbourhood holds a number of popular street festivals, garden tours and art studio visits provide an up close opportunity to get to know your neighbours. Local businesses are routinely named to the NOW Magazine Best of Toronto list. Danforth Village is home to some of the lowest vacancy rates and the highest year-over-year housing price increases in the GTA. Affordability, proximity, and new urban development means the area won’t remain Toronto’s best kept secret for long.
