About Regent Park
Regent Park is one of the most culturally diverse neighbourhoods in Toronto. There are more than 60 different first languages spoken here and a cornucopia of backgrounds.At once considered a danger zone in Toronto’s footprint, with higher crime rates, and a whirlwind of subsidized housing, Regent Park has become a sought-after place for the real estate savvy to invest.
Beginning in 2005, a master plan was introduced by the government to redevelop Regent Park into a more mixed-income neighbourhood by investing in the renewal of the area’s buildings, architecture, and local offerings. Today, Regent Park’s revitalization can be seen in it’s sparkling recreational facilities, updated buildings, the investment of entrepreneurial local businesses and shops, and an array of local visitors.
Sandwiched in-between Cabbagetown, Queen street, Riverdale and Toronto’s downtown core – Regent Park sits on a prime, and coveted pocket of Toronto real estate. Investment in the area is only just beginning and perception of the neighbourhood continues to change positively. The collective drive to bring more prosperity and investment from local businesses to the area is palpable.
Although once this city’s largest social housing project, house-hunters looking to get in on the cutting edge of the market can find beautiful condo buildings – such as the PaintBox condos, handsome townhomes, community gardens, convenience, and neighbourliness, in this burgeoning Toronto neighbourhood.
