The Lowdown on Junction Triangle

Your Typical Neighbour

Long-time European families are still a constant here. Creative types that no are no longer able to afford Parkdale are looking north to the Junction Triangle to put down roots. Families are flocking to the affordability of the area’s houses, and first time hipst… ummm buyers are exploring conversion offerings!

What We

Value. There are some great homes to be found here, both on the house front, and on the loft conversion front. The relative affordability of the area clearly speaks to the fact that it hasn’t been FULLY discovered yet!

What We Don't

Many of the most charming and affordable houses are on narrow streets where on-street parking is the only option, which can be a challenge for a growing family. There's also some streets that retain a significant sketch factor; be sure to visit at night to make sure you're comfortable before you buy.

The significant decline in industry in the area has made way for a major revitalization of abandoned factories and warehouses. Many have been converted into condo loft spaces, while others have been torn down completely and new townhouse developments built in their place. A driving tour of some of the smaller streets in this neighbourhood reveals further development either underway or waiting to be snapped up by growing demand and increasing popularity.

Alongside the growing number of condo loft and townhome offerings, the narrow side streets are lined with 1920s-built Victorian homes. These two and three-story houses can be found in varying states of update, though many have had the exterior brick repainted (some more tastefully than others) and offer lovely curb appeal. Many homes are divided into several apartments, some as fully-tenanted investment properties, while others are primarily owner-occupied with "mortgage-helper" basement apartments.

If you’re considering this neighbourhood, we suggest you move sooner rather than later to maximize your long-term investment potential. The flippers (and realtors) discovered it a couple of years ago, and now fully renovated homes come up for sale more and more - as pure an indication as you’re going to get that the area remains undervalued.

About Junction Triangle

The Junction Triangle is a tiny neighbourhood sandwiched between The Junction and Bloordale village. Aside from being home to many Torontonians, it has also played host to successful Canadian start-ups like Freshbooks.

The ‘Triangle’ in ‘Junction Triangle’ is due to the area literally forming the shape of a triangle of land – defined by its clear-cut borders of railway tracks on all 3 sides. Within its borders, residents have a wide range of local business offerings: Halo Brewery, Yoga Yoga, Urban Acorn Market, TuckShop Kitchen, Hello Darling, Katzman Contemporary, Boulderz Climbing…the list goes on.

Can’t find what you need within the Junction Triangle “proper”? Head on over to neighbouring hot spots in Roncesvalles Village or High Park. And yet, it’s very hard to feel disappointed in this unique, and highly sought-after slice of the city–an area consistently touched with brilliance, innovation, and smart design, traditional of a modern-day rebirth.

Construction, new business, and support ‘shop local’ mentality will continue to drive flocks of buyers to this neighbourhood. An area of the city that has shown power in reinvention. A place that’s theme song just might be “My Way”. A neighbourhood, that embraces the young, the old, families, newlyweds, swinging-singles, loners, and socialites – all at once.
