The Leaside Neighbourhood
This vibrant district echoes Toronto’s famous shopping streets like Queen West and Bloor West, with a thriving local food scene. Popular eateries like Adamson Barbeque draw long queues of eager diners. To the north lies the esteemed Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, originally established for Canadian veterans. It has since expanded to three campuses and boasts Canada’s largest trauma centre. As a teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Toronto, it attracts top-tier healthcare and students seeking educational opportunities.
With a captivating history as one of Toronto’s early master-planned communities, this neighbourhood was developed by the York Land Company in 1912 to foster industrial growth. During the First World War, it served as an industrial hub, producing munitions for Canada Wire and Cable. Over the 20th century, it evolved into an affluent residential area. The upcoming Eglinton Crosstown LRT is set to bring a new wave of transformation to the community. Blessed with scenic green spaces and rich history, the majority of homeowners currently reside in detached houses. However, the arrival of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT is expected to bring changes in density and rejuvenate the entire community.
