Historic homes, luxury condominiums, vibrant shopping and a park-like setting make The Kingsway one of Toronto’s premier neighbourhoods. Set between two parklands, the winding Humber River to the east, and Mimico Creek, to the west, The Kingsway offers miles of green space for walking, biking and bird watching. Many of the original homes, built in the early 1900s, are stately, detached, two-storey stone builds, in the Arts and Craft style of the day. As well, Tudor, Edwardian and Victorian homes are also set back from the quiet streets by expansive, perfectly manicured front lawns.
Winding streets, lined with old maple and oak trees, give a quiet, private retreat feeling to this affluent west Toronto neighbourhood. Along its southern border, vibrant Bloor Street offers The Kingsway residents a variety of owner-owned shops, restaurants and local amenities, including the independently owned Kingsway (movie) Theatre, built in 1939. Perfect for families, some of the best schools in the city are in this prominent neighbourhood, as well as sports fields, tennis courts, an outdoor pool and skating rink. Condo residents enjoy the walkability of life along Bloor Street, and Dundas Street on the northern border, both served by public transit buses and subway stations. High Park, with its 400-acre mixed recreational and natural use, is adjacent to The Kingsway, at the south west corner along Bloor Street.
Originally conceived and carefully built based on the garden city movement developed in Britain, The Kingsway neighbourhood is its own self-sufficient community, thoughtfully integrating the green spaces along and within its boundaries. It’s also less than a 30-minute commute to downtown Toronto, and 15 minutes from Pearson Airport.
