This neighbourhood has become highly desired by an educated, entrepreneurial, creative workforce who understand the merit of working where they live and vice-versa. With all the creativity around, Queen West is a testament to the product of re-invention and property possibility. Stunning Victorian houses are being renovated, boutique condos are built and old commercial buildings have been converted into cool lofts. Whether it’s the edgy lofts along Queen Street or beautiful homes on the mature, tree-lined streets of the neighbourhood, the area supports the known real estate mantra – location, location, location. With the green scape of Trinity Bellwoods Park, trend-setting restaurants and bars, and city’s cutting-edge galleries, it’s no wonder that this neighbourhood’s properties are some of the most coveted by young singles and couples.
