Yonge and College is one of the best spots to be in the city. It’s right in the heart of downtown, with access to the subway system, stores, restaurants, Yonge-Dundas Square, the Eaton Centre, just steps away. We’re proud to be a part of the College Park redevelopment, which includes other Canderel developments such as College Park Phase 1 and 2 as well as Canada’s tallest residential tower, Aura Condominium. It’s really exciting to add our building to that neighbourhood!
We spoke to Jeff Train, who manages all our residential leasing, about why he loves our neighbourhood and what makes it a great place to live in Toronto. Here’s what he had to say:
Why do you think the Yonge and College neighbourhood is one of the best spots to live in the city?
Easy – location, location, location! You couldn’t be any more central downtown than this. Living in this neighbourhood puts you right in the heart of the action; it makes you understand what it really means to be a part of our vibrant, multicultural city.
How would you describe the lifestyle at Yonge and College?
The words exciting, alive and eclectic immediately come to mind – with so many things for everyone to see and do, both day and night, it’s city living at its finest.
Why would the neighbourhood be appealing to people who want to rent in Toronto?
Everything you could want or need will be just steps away – shopping, restaurants, nightlife, the College Park greenspace, world-class health care (YC is just a few minutes from ‘hospital row’ on University Avenue) – and all without the need for a car. If you do want to explore other areas of the city, the TTC subway system is just steps away. College station is our second home!
Why would the neighbourhood be appealing to people who want to buy in Toronto?
Aside from the other factors already mentioned, downtown real estate is a particularly excellent investment as it is always in very high demand – and YC Condos will be the next towering crown jewel of the neighbourhood, with breathtaking city views in every direction.
Jeff Train is an expert on all things Yonge and College. He’s been working closely with Canderel Residential on Aura as well and we’re glad to have his input, which is grounded in experience, about our awesome neighbourhood.
