Benville Court – lovely and well-located

It takes more than just a prime location and great value to make a good apartment. While location will always be one of the most important factors when selecting an apartment, you need to look further than the address, the size and the price to ensure you’re choosing wisely.

Downsview: Conveniently located parkside living

A diverse neighbourhood in the north end of Toronto, Downsview was originally a farm located near the present intersection of Keele Street and Wilson Avenue. Today Downsview includes the area north to about Finch and east to Allen Road, encompassing the Downsview Airport and adjacent Downsview Park. A vibrant community, Downsview contains a variety of schools, (both regular public as well as Catholic), churches and community services. The rejuvinated park is a huge draw and destination, a great natural oasis in the city.

Parkway East: Great Location, Great Selection, Great Value

If you’re looking for convenience, affordability and selection, in a neighbourhood with good services and amenities, you might want to consider the area around Victoria Park between Lawrence and York Mills, often referred to as “Parkway East.” This is a prime location, just minutes from the intersection of the Don Valley Parkway and the 401 with a distinctly residential atmosphere. The community features several schools, churches, recreation facilities and, while there is great shopping conveniently situated, the apartments in this area are for the most part surrounded by lots of greenspace, convenient to parks and set on nicely landscaped grounds.

Humberlea: A Family Friendly Neighbourhood

Humberlea, a quiet North York community, lies on the east side of the Humber River between Wilson and Sheppard Avenues. To the east are the industrial lands which can be seen along Highway 400. From the early 1800s until the mid 1900s Humberlea was a thriving farming community, originally populated by residents of British descent. In the 1940s, the farmlands were sold to developers. After World War II, a large Italian population arrived and settled here and in the neighbouring areas of Pelmo Park and Weston just convenient to parks and set on nicely landscaped grounds.

Humber Summit: A Great Place to Live

The neighbourhood of Humber Summit, as the name suggests, is located just off of the Humber River at the top of the city. Technically within North York but looking more like neighbouring Etobicoke, Humber Summit includes dipping valleys, plenty of parks and tons of walking trails that follow the weaving currents of the river. It was, of course, the Humber River itself that first helped inhabit the area in the nineteenth century. Settlers came to work at pioneer Joseph Rowntree’s grist and saw mills, which he operated on Humber’s eastern and western banks. Affordable, quiet, convenient and picturesque, Humber Summit was a great place to live in the mid-1800’s and continues to be a great place to live today.

Emery: The New Urban

Emery, located in and around Weston Road and Finch Avenue in North York, is one of these neighbourhoods that exemplifies Toronto’s new urban demographic. The area has become popular because it is very convenient – located near highways and schools, very lush — located near a major park and river and with all of the great amenities and infrastructure accessible to this neighbourhood, it’s still very affordable.
