The St. Clair Village Condos Neighbourhood: St. Clair Village
Named after the neighbourhood it comes from, the St. Clair Village Condos are situated in a revived section of downtown Toronto. The warm St. Clair Village community is close to a number of transit options – both streetcar and subway – and is in close proximity to some of the most expensive neighbourhoods in Toronto. St. Clair Ave W boasts a rapid rail transit system and dedicated streetcar running from east to west. St. Clair Subway Station is also nearby, which enables fast travel to nearly anywhere in Toronto.
Some of the city’s best restaurants are walking distance while the city’s downtown core is only a short bike ride away. St. Clair Village is home to a number of different cuisines, from the casual to the fine dining. The thoroughfare is sure to set your taste buds ablaze. In fact, some of the city’s top restauranteurs move to St. Clair to demonstrate their culinary talents. The restaurants and eateries reflect the neighbourhood’s diversity and sense of originality. Heritage and artisanal flair is alive everywhere you stop along the street, with a great deal of thought and consideration given to every manner of culinary craft. Here, you’ll find French, Portuguese, Greek, and more. Heavenly bakeries, ice cream parlours, and coffee houses abound for a quick treat.
While you can burn off all those delicious calories simply by enjoying the walk around St. Clair Village on foot, the area is also home to a number of independent boutique fitness studios, from spin to yoga.
Nothing is cookie cutter in St. Clair Village, and that includes the shopping as well. Expect the unexpected with pleasant shopping surprises on display throughout the village. Handmade designer home decor pieces are set alongside vivacious floral arrangements, authentic mid-century furniture, bookstores, evening and wedding gown boutiques, and hair, nail and wax studios. If you’re looking for the bigger box stores, one-stop shopping is available a short distance away at the Stock Yards Village shopping mall, home to banks and more than 50 convenient stores for home, pets, sports, fashion, fitness, and food.
St. Clair Village boasts a vibrant arts and culture scene, with Wychwood barns just a short walk east from the condo. The Barns is a designated heritage structure and community cultural hub. A family-friendly place, the Barns is famed for its year-round Farmers’ Market every Saturday featuring local, sustainable, organic and artisanal products. It’s also a great meeting place and is home to 26 artist live/work studios and 15 artist work studios. If being a part of a vibrant, culturally-rich, artistic community is important to you, this is the place to be.
St. Clair Ave W is also home to a number of fine art galleries, including the Black Cat Showroom, Galleria 814, and the Artusiasm Art Gallery, which showcases new artwork every two weeks and hosts exhibitors and artist events throughout the year.
St. Clair sees no end of lively events either. Salsa on St. Clair, for example, is a weekend event occurring annually in early July, all the way to the summer with free on-site dance lessons from the city’s leading dance studios. On a regular evening or weekend, you can easily find cocktails, entertainment, and dining experiences nearby, whether you are feeling for a centuries-old vibe in nearby heritage buildings or a contemporary, lavish new feel.
Artisans, craftspeople, and multi-generational family businesses line the streets. The area is filled with people who trade on a first-name basis, and this small-town charm in the big city permeates the neighbourhood.
If your focus is with your kids, all levels of schooling are within easy reach to St. Clair Village, from local daycares to public and private schools, all the way to universities and colleges. Every campus is located within easy transit distance. For University of Toronto students, it’s a short cycle away, while George Brown College is a short walk away.
Why invest in St. Clair Village Condos?
As my write-up above suggests, one of the biggest draws of the St. Clair Village Condo development is its location. With its accessible transit options, close proximity to some of the most expensive downtown Toronto neighbourhoods, and its small-town vibe, St. Clair Village is an up-and-coming neighbourhood that will appeal to those who want the city life without the coldness and anonymity that may sometimes come with it.
This development is particularly good for families, particularly if many in the family need to be downtown on a regular basis, whether for school, work or activities. Condo developments in downtown Toronto don’t often bost units as large as the three-bedroom, 1,300 square foot condos being offered by this development, and this rarity is certainly part of its appeal.
Whether arts and culture is important to you, you’re raising a young family and want the nearness to prestigious schools, or you work downtown but don’t want to stomach the (let’s be honest, often astronomical prices of downtown Toronto), St. Clair Village Condos is something you should consider.
Alternatively, if you are an investor, the St. Clair Village Condos certainly has no end of appeal if you are looking at these units from a cash flow perspective.
