The Queen Street east strip from River Street to leslieville is one of the city’s most up and coming neighbourhoods. If small independent shops and restaurants and coffee shops and neighbourhood bars interest you then this is the place for you.
With Riverdale to the north and the Beach area to the East, Queen east took a while to become the focus of gentrification,but it has now arrived in full force.
The Broadview lofts began the trend of revitalization, but many more have followed and the area now boasts many building choices including phases one and two of the River City project in the West Don Lands.
Toronto Harbourfront Terminal Building Condos.
The area is primarily houses and townhouses but many condominium buildings have been planned.
Queen East is concentrated along Queen Street and the side streets from Eastern Ave. on the South end to Dundas St. on the North.
The 24 hour Queen streetcar is one of the longest and most scenic routes in the city. Both Zip car and Auto Share are well represented.
Taxis do run frequently along Queen from River to Woodbine.
