At various stages in our lives we look for different things. As a young professional, this is a period of time to establish yourself. A young professional has finished school, begun their career, and is looking to live somewhere that does not resemble a dorm room. There are some really amazing places in Toronto that let young professionals have fun while still having easy access to public transportation to get to work. Here are some of the best places to live in Toronto for Young Professionals.
Liberty Village is a world unto itself. This neighbourhood is the best place to live if you are looking for a tight-knit community. Here, you will find a blend of commercial, retail and urban developments that make it seem like you are living in your own village within Toronto.
Liberty Village’s architecture is mainly old industrial buildings repurposed into trendy lofts and townhouses. If you want to get as close to downtown as possible while saving your money, this is the neighbourhood for you.
Yonge and Eglinton
If you love to get out and explore, look no further than Yonge and Eglinton. This area is full of top restaurants, funky night spots and everything in between. If you want access to downtown, including the Financial District and Fashion District, you will only need a quick subway commute which makes it a perfect location for young professionals.
The beauty of Yonge and Eglinton is that there is quite literally something for everyone. While some young professionals will gravitate to the busier intersections in the neighbourhood, others might prefer venturing a few blocks from the main streets for large trees, larger homes and a more peaceful atmosphere all while being just steps away from the action.
One of the best places to live in Toronto for young professionals is Trinity Bellwoods. This neighbourhood has the perfect mix of urban architecture and green spaces. Trinity Bellwoods Park is one of the city’s top hotspots in the summer, offering farmer’s markets and a large area for picnics and other summer activities. If you are a foodie, you will love Trinity Bellwoods – it is home to some of the best bakeries, ice cream parlours and independent eateries in the city.
Trinity Bellwoods is ideal for those who prefer to live in a neighbourhood full of history and Victorian architecture. The homes in this area are mostly Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian with a limited number of condos and lofts.
King West is notorious for being a very trendy neighbourhood. If you love craft beers, artisan coffee and clubbing then King West is the area for you. There is something new to experience every day in this neighbourhood.
King West is perfect for those who seek the high-rise lifestyle. This neighbourhood has some of the densest concentration of condo developments in the city. Be prepared for a wide variety of beautiful condos, but also be prepared for a competitive market.
These are just some of the best places to live in Toronto for young professionals. If you are a young professional and are looking to move to the city, I encourage you to reach out. I would love to find you the perfect home in a neighbourhood that matches your personality and lifestyle.
