High Park - Swansea- Roncesvalles Village
High Park - Swansea - Bloor West Village - Roncesvalles Village
In a few neighbourhoods, a single major civic asset overshadows all others, and adds incalculable value to houses and apartments for at least half a dozen blocks in every direction. The bonus here is, of course, the city’s largest cultivated and organized public green space, High Park, which covers nearly 400 acres and boasts every possible asset, from a historic museum to a fish pond called Grenadier. The magnificent view of the lake from the northern end of the property inspired John Howard, an English-born architect, painter and city surveyor, to call his vast estate High Park. He became the greatest single benefactor in Toronto history when he gave the city both his park and his home, Colborne Lodge, in 1873. Today, the streets focused around High Park display some excellent old housing stock, much of it dating back to the period when Howard’s gift inspired developers to build residential roads near the parkland. Many houses have been enhanced in recent years by large investments in renovation. Large condo projects are scheduled for Quebec Avenue and High Park Ave., North of Bloor. (Gothic) Also Registrations are now being taken on the Hariri Pontarini designed project that's going in where the Humber Cinema was.
Truly a preferred neighbourhood in transition. Every one will be delighted with the expanded curbs, and trees are grade level that enhance the street canopy.

Things to do in Bloor West Village
The south side of High Park is now bounded by three different condominum projects, Windermere by the Lake and Parklake Residences. Both will be premier destinations. Swansea is to the west of High Park and affords some very steep hill driving to get to the individual streets. Bloor West Village extends the North and East boundary to the Jane Street Subway station. The West Boundary of High Park is Roncesvalles Village, that provides the same Ethno Polish Ukrainian shopping experience as Bloor West Village.

Keele and Dundas looking at the Toronto Bank before they became the Dominion Bank to become the TD Bank. A little look at history.
The picture below is the new condominium complex from Tridel that is slated I believe for the Canadian Tire Store at Dundas and Keele. Maybe they will bring the streetcars back.
The Toronto Star named the Junction community one of Toronto’s “top up-and-coming neighbourhoods”. We agree. That’s why Deltera, a member of the Tridel group of companies, will be beginning construction at our Keele Street and Dundas Street West location in late March 2008.
