East of Centre

This gem of a neighbourhood, located in a fast-developing “it” area just east North York’s busy city centre, is close to everything you need, but just removed enough to give you the peaceful retreat you crave.

You’re minutes from the Toronto Centre for the Performing Arts, Mel Lastman Square (host to great events all year-round), the Douglas Snow Aquatic Centre (with an Olympic pool), two movie theatres and the North York Public Library.

You’re close to great schools, outstanding shopping, parks, restaurants and more – and you’re not far from the subway, highways and main thoroughfares, so it’s easy to get around, whether you’re staying uptown or heading into the downtown core.
