Toronto Harbourfront Real Estate & Neighbourhood History
Toronto Harbourfront real estate has some of the best views in the city and is popular among people of all age groups.
The Toronto Harbourfront was originally created from landfill added in the 1800s. The additional land attracted many different industry structures and businesses such as shipping facilities, railway tracks, factories and warehouses. During this time, these industrial structures cut off the Harbourfront area from the rest of the city.
In 1972, the Harbourfront Corporation, a federally sponsored organization, was created. The Harbourfront Corporation allowed Toronto citizens to reclaim the waterfront from the various industries that were situated along the waterfront during that time. The Toronto Harbourfront has been constantly transforming ever since.
The still existing Queens Quay Terminal was once one of the largest warehouses in North America back in 1927. The building went through renovations in 1980 and now includes commercial, retail and residential space as well as spectacular views overlooking the Toronto Harbourfront and Lake Ontario.
Toronto Harbourfront Real Estate & Neighbourhood Today
The Toronto Harbourfront is a great community for young professionals and young families. It is conveniently located along a streetcar route which takes residents directly to Union Station and into the heart of Toronto’s financial district.
The Toronto Harbourfront community consists of a large number of high-rise condominiums and includes some of the best views of both the city of Toronto and Lake Ontario. Queens Quay, the main street that runs through the Toronto Harbourfront and along the water’s edge, was recently rejuvenated and designated bike and walking paths were added as well as an urban park where many different festivals and markets take place during the summer months. The rejuvenation of Queens Quay has played a part in increasing the values of Toronto Harbourfront real estate.
One of the more unique aspects of the Toronto Harbourfront community is the convenient boat rental location which is within a short walk from most of the condos in the area. Residents and visitors are able to enjoy the fun of taking a boat out on the water without having to own a boat or having to cover the expenses associated with owning a boat. The boat rental location rents out a variety of boats including motor boats, sail boats and paddle boats.
Residents of the Toronto Harbourfront also enjoy the man-made beach which is located on the water’s edge. This beautiful location offers stunning views of the lake, boats and planes that take off at the Toronto Island Airport.
The Harbourfront Centre also includes a small outdoor pond during the summer which is transformed into an outdoor skating rink during the winter months. During the winter, residents and visitors to the Toronto Harbourfront enjoy outdoor skating under the stars while enjoying their favourite songs played by local DJs. The Toronto Harbourfront has come a long way since its industrial days during the 1800s.
