St. Lawrence Market Services & Business

The area from Yonge going east to Parliament and from Dundas moving south to the lake is called the St. Lawrence Market area. What was once a mish mash of warehouses in an underdeveloped and unappealing part of the city from the 60’s through the 80’s has been transformed into one of the city’s most vibrant areas for downtown Toronto codo’s for sale, and a very enjoyable place to live. After the success of the mixed housing on The Esplanade combined with the allure of the historic St. Lawrence Market itself and the gradual influx of high end design and furniture shops combined with bars and restaurants, an area was created that could not help but become a attractive and desirable place to live.

The downtown Toronto neighbourhood offers a host of condominiums to suit almost any taste and budget. The Market Square condominiums with it’s large floor plans represents good value when compared to the newer projects being announced and under construction and is still very much an in demand building after 30 years. There are also many historical buildings in this downtown Toronto condo area which have been lovingly restored and the city provides many beautiful public green spaces and parks.

Price Range:

From $250,000.00 range for Bachelors with a good variety of suites in the $300,000 to $600,000 for one and two bedrooms and higher for exclusive and luxury suites. A new set of upscale condo buildings have recently been completed and offer even more choice for the discerning buyer in this old Toronto neighborhood.

The area is almost exclusively condominiums with the odd street of turn of the last century houses and a smattering of townhouses.
