Although this neighbourhood is just outside of the city centre, Hurontario has a lot going on. Named after the main street running through this ‘hood, Hurontario residents here are lucky enough to enjoy city-like-amenities while still being a bit removed from the chaos closer to Square One. That said, depending on where you are in the neighbourhood you could still experience quite a bit of traffic, but once the Hurontario LRT is complete it should make the neighbourhood a bit more foot-friendly. For now, the area is still very car reliant but you have easy access to the 401 and 403 which provides you a few options to help you get where you’re going (somewhat) quickly.
The intersection at Eglinton and Hurontario has seen a lot of development and is poised to see more in the coming years. Adding to the condo inventory are quite a few new projects looking to capitalize on the closeness to Square One and the relative affordability of the neighbourhood.
