HEART OF DOWNTOWN
This most exhilarating neighbourhood, one of the most happening places in downtown Toronto. Acting like a red carpet for the city’s downtown, this distinctive neighbourhood not only enhances the vitality of downtown, yet represents the constant change and multicultural layers that makes the city of Toronto unique. Yonge-Dundas Square has always served as a major hub for entertainment, immersed in the mosaic of cultures that brings our city together.
One of the things the Gluzberg team enjoys most about Toronto, is the vibrant multicultural population, although, the official language is English, the lively streets are brimming with global languages, well over 200 languages are spoken.
Toronto is known for being the most multicultural city in the world. Regardless of the various cultures, we are all the same…Torontonians.
Yonge-Dundas square is a unique focal point, prominent landmark in Toronto known for being the central hub (Toronto’s Time Square). Surrounding the square are other major landmarks, including the Toronto Eaton Centre, Ed Mirvish Theatre, the list goes on and on and on.
This is the busiest intersection in Canada with over 100,000 people crossing the city’s first pedestrian scramble daily, over 56 million people annually. What is a city, but the people. This neighbourhood is always buzzing.
The Yonge-Dundas square is highly accessible by the Toronto subway at Dundas station and is connected to the PATH. The PATH is a mostly underground pedestrian walkway network in downtown Toronto that spans more than 30 kilometres of restaurants, shopping, services and entertainment, more than 75 buildings are connected to the PATH.

The PATH provides links to some of Toronto’s most popular entertainment attractions, including the Hockey Hall of Fame, Roy Thomson Hall, the Air Canada Centre, City Hall and Metro Hall are also connected through the PATH.
Busy, bright and entertaining. Live music, street performers (panhandlers) and all kind of crazy with activities and events that delight and entertain. Ooo and those illuminated and electronic flashing billboards that surround it. The Gluzberg team enjoys the pulse of this neighbourhood, always so alive. Living downtown satisfies that thirst for the vibrant city life that so many of us crave. Everything awesome happens downtown. Being close to the pulse of the city ensures that the latest and greatest of events are yours to consume at your leisure. Fun that fuels the culture of this bustling metropolis.
The city of Toronto has experienced a period of architectural resurrection. Several buildings that were designed by world renowned architects were completed throughout the late 2000’s. Imagine living in an urban property close to this landmark neighbourhood in the downtown core.
