YourHomeInToronto, artfully uniting extraordinary properties with extraordinary lives in Waterfront West
Waterfront West bounded by the Humber River in the west, Marilyn Bell Park in the east, the CN Rail corridor in the north and Lake Ontario to the south. East of Jameson Ave, the waterfront area is home to Exhibition Place with Ontario Place just to the south on three artificial islands.
Waterfront West defined by a large amount of parkland as well as a transportation corridor made up of the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard.
Waterfront West border is marked by the Humber River. At the waterfront this river is crossed by the prominent new Humber Bay Arch Bridge. From the Humber to Jameson Avenue in the east is the Sunnyside area of waterfront parklands and recreational uses. Adjoining the waterfront to the north is the large High Park. The Swansea, Roncesvalles and Parkdale older neighbourhoods are north of the waterfront in this area.
This broad area includes the trendy and alternative Queen West as well as a portion of King West Village and of course the ever popular and vibrant Harbourfront area west of Yonge St to Bathurst.
The Waterfront West consists mainly of condominium buildings. Some old, some new, and most very desirable. Prices range from very affordable to expensive lofts and houses.
There are many quiet, natural places to enjoy along the Waterfront West. Trail surface is largely asphalt, routed along quiet residential streets. One stretch of Trail (2km from Royal York to Park Lawn) follows Lake Shore Blvd.
