The Gluzberg team is no stranger to Queen West. This is the IT neighbourhood of Toronto, filled with a cultural hub of creativity, design, and influence. Even Vogue has called it one of the coolest areas in the world! Queen West is a neighbourhood that continues to grow and expand, making it a community where everyone feels at home.
In the early 1980s, the original Queen West neighbourhood—a stretch from University to Spadina—began to change. The artists and musicians who populated this lively bohemian hub started to move further west along Queen, past Bathurst and into Parkdale in search of less expensive rents. Today, that original Queen West strip is home to snazzy big box retailers and sleek high-rise condos with revitalization and development creeping all the way west to Dufferin Street.
Hip, cool, bohemian, this is where the creative class calls home. You’ll find galleries galore, groovy cafes, unique restos, independent bookstores and artists’ residences. The revived Gladstone and Drake Hotels serve as cultural hubs for a trendy clientele. Young families and urban professionals hang out in Trinity-Bellwoods Park. The entire strip is a destination for fashionistas, offering up hundreds of distinctive small-scale boutiques as well as popular big box chains. Even with ever increasing development and gentrification, Queen West remains the heart of the city’s arts and culture scene.
Queen West boast a wide variety of housing stock, from imposing detached Victorians to modest semi-detached worker’s cottages, from low-rise rental apartments to airy warehouse loft conversions. The area has seen a steady influx of new stacked townhouse complexes and high-rise luxury condominiums. With designers, artists, techies and other cultural elites clamouring to live and work in this trendy strip of Toronto. Development and revitalization will continue, boosting property values to unprecedented levels.
