The neighbourhood lifestyle
The Bay Bloor Corridor is only a few minutes south of where I live and work in Yorkville. Here you’ll find yourself in a different world. One filled with skyscrapers and the business hub of the financial district of downtown Toronto. The Bay/Bloor corridor is made up of the city’s largest concentration of skyscrapers and businesses. Housed here are much of the municipal government of Toronto’s buildings and the provincial government of Ontario.
One of the busiest locations, and most popular, of the Bay/Bloor Corridor is the Eaton Centre. Here people can enjoy their favourite gourmet foods at a personal favourite location such as the Urban Eatery. Not to mention the Eaton Centre has over 175 retail stores and is widely considered to be the premier shopping destination in the city. Its going to be home to Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom soon as well! If you like to shop, and really who doesn’t? Then you are going to be spending a lot of time in the Bay/Bloor Corridor.
Nestled in the mass of high-rise condos, apartments, and office buildings sits the University of Toronto. U of T, as most people in Toronto call it, preserves some green space. This green space is great for sitting and and reading a book once and awhile. They have beautiful green lawns and lots of flowers surrounded by big buildings like Robarts Library and courtyards near all the colleges. A designated area called Front Campus at King’s College Circle is a large green space in front of Convocation Hall. Nearby is Hart House circle, a green area for the Hart House Building. Having the University of Toronto nearby is great not just for the extra green space. You also have the ad benefit of renting out condo units to students.
According to the Bay St. area residents, this neighbourhood is for those who would rather not own a car and love walking, especially with their pets. This corridor is very well served by public transit. It has subway stations all along Bloor and Yonge St. The Yonge and Bloor subway lines also offer buses and streetcars running from each. You can live near the Bloor Yonge station, or even the Wellesley, College, or Dundas stations. Buying a home or condo here keeps you accessible to jobs all over the city without needing a car.
