Hip, artistic and full of culture. Variety abounds here. You'll find everything from upscale pubs to tattoo parlours and quiet parkettes next to the hustle on Bloor Street.
Wallace Emerson is undergoing an evolution. Bordered by Dupont to Bloor and Dundas to Dufferin, historically this neighbourhood has had working-class roots but it's now being called the "Next West Queen West". First-time buyers, attracted by the area's desirable price points compared to properties closer to the core, have been turning its late 1800's to early 1900's homes into renovated showstoppers and snatching up the now converted lofts and condo's that were once old factories. Cross from one block to the next and you're sure to find notices for new developments projects as more and more builders focus their resources into the area.
For its beginnings, it can thank the Canadian Pacific and National railway lines which began freight services to the area in the late 1800's. It wasn't until almost a century later, in 1970, that it became a clearly defined neighbourhood (call it a late bloomer!).
Famous for its narrow streets and abundance of laneways which offer a quick passage from one area to the next, Wallace Emerson real estate is at once gritty and artsy. Locals love the Bloor/Gladstone Public Library at 1101 Bloor Street West and the Wallace Emerson Community Centre at 1260 Dufferin Street, which offers an indoor pool, gym, games rooms, tennis courts and ice rinks.
Very well served by public transit, almost every home in Wallace Emerson real estate is only a few minutes walk to the TTC. Bloor-Danforth has two stations close by at Dufferin and Lansdowne and there's bus routes along Dufferin, Dupont and Lansdowne.
Although heavily European, Wallace Emerson real estate has a fairly wide socio-economic demographic which increasingly includes the East Asian community and young families.
