You truly can’t beat the location of this development that is mere steps away from Sheppard West station. The project is approximately a 6-7 minute walk away from the station, making it ideal for students and working professionals alike.
In addition to being minutes away from the subway’s Line 1 on Yonge, it will also be 25 minutes away from the impending Faywood stop on the line anticipated to connect Sheppard West and Sheppard Station on Line 1. The site boasts a 65 walkscore out of 100, and 79 transit score out of 100.
This is a notable development for students who will have an option to live in a townhome with roomates. After all, all universities are easily accessible from the site. Students would need not worry about early and late classes, considering access to the subway ensures seamless travel to the city’s major universities not limited to Ryerson University and University of Toronto -- both of which are attached to the line. Most notably, York University is just a couple stops away from the area. Such proximity to schools also opens options for students to work on campus.
Similarly, business professionals -- single or with families -- will enjoy being so close to the subway, ensuring easy access to the city’s career hubs not limited to the Financial District and Entertainment District.
The best thing about the development’s closeness to the subway, however, is the luxury of having such quick access to the city while living in a quiet yet urban area outside the hustle and bustle of Toronto. The site truly offers the best of both worlds, as the wealth of shopping and dining along the subway line are all a few stations away -- in addition to the walkable entertainment options. Between fine dining options like Le Montmartre French Restaurant and faster budget eats like Wimpy’s Diner, the choices are diverse and cater to a variety of budgets and lifestyles.
In terms of shopping, Yorkdale Shopping Mall is an affluent retail centre just a couple stops away from the neighbourhood's central Sheppard West station. Whether you’re a student looking for steals at H&M or a business professional enjoying browsing the newest lines at Aritzia, Ted Baker or Tory Burch, anyone and everyone can make the most of a venture to the mall. Plus, considering the food and entertainment options like the attached movie theatre, Yorkdale poses the perfect weekend adventure option if you want to block out a full day to scale the mall, but its proximity also makes it easy to pop in for a browse after a day at work.
This development is key for investors looking for an investment that is appealing to a wide variety of potential residents -- the types of lifestyles that the development will appeal to are endless and display no limitations. This is a development that has it all, with a wealth of local leisures and on site amenities that makes for an expansive demographic range.
