Located just east of the Don Valley River, this natural resource doubles as an urban playspace for active types. The Don Valley Trail that runs alongside is an ideal spot for cycling or hiking during warmer months. A short ride on public transit will take you to Riverdale Park, a 400-acre green space filled with a farm, swimming pool, multiple baseball diamonds, and cricket pitches.
Just north of there is Evergreen Brickworks, which can be reached in under 10 minutes. Residents can spend the weekend exploring this converted quarry, which now hosts a year-round farmer’s market, a children’s garden, bike shop, café, off-leash dog park, as well as a skating rink in the wintertime.
Meanwhile, a 6-minute drive will bring you to St. Lawrence Market. This is Toronto’s go-to spot for fresh produce, meat, fish, and baked goods from all over the world.
Once the weather warms up, residents here will come to appreciate how close they live to the shore. Cherry Beach and Woodbine Beach are each a 10-minute drive away, making it that much easier to secure a good spot on weekends.

This development was completed in 2007 by Sorbara Group, making it one of the older properties in the South Riverdale community. The red brick façade provides hints as to the building’s origins: The structure was once used as a warehouse for Rexall Pharmacy. Even the original water tower still survives up on the roof, although today its function is purely decorative.
With its location just steps from Queen Street East, residents can head west to reach Toronto’s downtown core in no time. The Queen streetcar will carry commuters toward the subway, or even farther west, 24 hours a day. Alternatively, a northbound ride on the Broadview streetcar will bring you to Broadview station on the Bloor-Danforth subway line.
Drivers can make use of both these major arterial roads, while the Don Valley Parkway and the Gardiner Expressway are also nearby. These two highways are ideal for getting out to the edges of the city, or exiting it altogether.
68 Broadview is much more expensive than the neighbourhood average, with the fourth-highest cost per square foot among 36 condos in the area. But many buyers are willing to pay the price because hard lofts are quite rare. That’s why the competition for units in this condo remains quite high. But if you’re okay with a building that offers fewer amenities than some of the more modern-day developments, then Broadview Lofts will not disappoint.
