Leslieville itself is famous for boutique shops, restaurants, farmers’ markets, espresso bars, even vintage bowling alleys and craft breweries like Godspeed and Rorschach Brewing Co, can be found in this neighbourhood, making exciting nightlife a good bet all year round. Once called “the nest Williamsburg” by the NY Times, Leslieville is teaming with exciting local shops. Queen Margherita Pizza, Leslieville Pumps, Te Are, The Green Wood, and many more restaurants make for a wide variety of delicious, affordable local restaurants.
The neighbourhood has a very good transit score of 72. The easiest connection to the TTC is by taking advantage of the Queen Streetcar, which passes directly by the condo on Queen Street. Just a simple streetcar ride over the Don Valley and through Corktown will take residents to Queen Station, part of the TTC Subway Line 1, which is directly downtown. From there, the entire GTA is at your fingertips! Take the TTC Subway Line 1 or Line 2 to Union Station, or up north, east or west to all the distant corners of the city.
51% of area residents own their homes, and most of that area is semi-detached houses. Two-storey houses make up a great deal of the blocks within Leslieville, but as densification continues, we’re seeing a rise in condominiums every year.
Well located, and just off the beaten path, Leslieville has excellent transit, beautiful views, and simple connections to nature, which make it an increasingly popular site for young Torontonians looking for homes, making ownership in this area a wise investment.
