It seems like when you speak to any group of millennials in the GTA at least one of them says they live in South Etobicoke, and there are a few reasons why.
It’s close to downtown…
South Etobicoke is still well within city limits, so it doesn’t come with that dreaded moment of having to tell your friends and family you’re moving to the ‘burbs. You don’t have to worry about astronomical Uber bills downtown that slowly put a damper on your social life, and the area is so well serviced via TTC routes and GO Transit that you can often avoid the $19 Uber altogether.
…But it’s so NOT downtown
The streets are wide, there are strollable tree-lined boulevards and the nearby lake means fresh air and a killer view to wake up to every morning. The influx of adorable cafés and restaurants also give residents a ton of new spots to explore—in addition to neighbourhood classics.
Tons of new condos means cooler places to live
As most millennials (the disruptor generation) will know, competition means condo searchers get to be pickier. With an influx of condos mean residents can choose a community that really appeals to them. Instead of outdated theatre and party rooms, these new projects feature shared spaces that solve real-life dilemmas and encourage togetherness, like outdoor pools, temperature controlled parcel storage and Wi-Fi supported co-working spaces.
It’s perfect for today’s young professional
Today, most young professionals find themselves pulled between different offices and meeting locations. This definitely adds the variety they crave, but it can be a pain in Toronto traffic. South Etobicoke offers that sweet spot between the GTA communities you need to get to while still being in close proximity to downtown.
It doesn’t break the bank
While many Toronto neighbourhoods can feel like you’re shelling out the majority of your salary to live in a shoebox, South Etobicoke is one of those rare neighbourhoods where you can find a great condo on a reasonable budget. Like upcoming project Empire Phoenix, starting from the low $300s that offers an opportunity for new homeownership.
