Trendy West-End Location! Get in while you can!

In recent years, the Junction Triangle began a major revitalization; a revitalization which has certainly picked up speed. The neighbourhood has attracted the attention of developers due to its close proximity to Roncesvalles, High Park, The Junction , and its easy access to the Bloor subway line. Being so close to Dupont/Lansdowne, you get the best of Corso Italia & Bloordale too!

Fab new restaurants and cafes seem to keep popping up on Dupont. Just around the corner from 149 Franklin are you'll find : Cafe Con Leche, Farmhouse Tavern, The Daughter, Station Cold Brew Coffee Co., Baguette & Co and Angolino. Also worth noting is the Urban Acorn Market. It's exciting to see what will open next!

Young, cool businesses have moved in: Cuppa Coffee Studios , the "largest full-service stop-motion facility in the world" is just around the corner at 50 Edwin! Freshbooks, "the #1 cloud accounting solution for small business owners" has just opened/expanded in the Planet Storage building. Ubisoft , the high-tech French video game developer, has also chosen the Junction Triangle as its home. This treasure of a neighbourhood is WORLD-CLASS!

In addition, five prominent galleries have relocated to the area which adds to the excitement and attention.

You also don't have far to go to **Fresh Co., Shoppers Drug Mart & No Frills along the historic Dundas Street West shopping district!

Local street-shopping is available on Dundas, Dupont, Bloor Street West, and the northern part of Symington Avenue. Big-box retailers can be found at St. Clair Ave. & Keele Street.

Lots of local recreation! The West Toronto Rail Path** provides a 2.1 km long direct link for pedestrians & cyclists from the Junction to Dundas & Lansdowne area.

Many Parks nearby! Perth Square Park and the lovely Carlton Park are just around the corner. The vast Earlscourt Park is just a few blocks north. They offer space for picnics, sports as well as an off-leash dog area for Fido and Oscar. Campbell Park & Skating Rink holds many community events. The iconic High Park is a short distance away.

The Perth/Dupont Public Library has programs for pre-schoolers and children. The local YMCA, at Dundas & Dupont, offers a wide variety of programs for children & seniors.

There are two thriving City of Toronto community centres nearby. One of the largest facilities in Toronto is the Joseph J. Piccininni (JJP) Community Centre in Earlscourt. The Wallace Emerson Park & Community Centre is another gem. Both offer a variety of programming, rinks, pool, and gym.

School District includes many public, private, Catholic & alternative schools & daycares to choose from! Perth Ave Junior P.S. (French Immersion), Brock P.S., St. Luigi Separate School (conveniently right down the street), Pauline Junior P.S. & Bloor Collegiate to name but a few.

Transportation is a snap! Frequent bus service along Dupont & Dundas will take you to either Lansdowne & Dundas West subway stations which connect you to the Bloor-Danforth-Yonge-University-Spadina subway lines. Easy access to the Go Train!
