If you prefer Victorian homes and mature trees to clusters of towering glass high-rises, then Toronto condos for rent in Cabbagetown are a great choice.
Situated in downtown Toronto, just west of the Don River, Cabbagetown is an eclectic neighbourhood that places residents within striking range of Toronto’s biggest and best attractions, but far enough away that they can still sleep at night. Cabbagetown is an excellent spot for young families, with a number of schools within its borders, and parks dispersed throughout the area, some of which have recreation facilities like those found at Riverdale Park West.
For most neighbourhoods, a wealth of schools and parklands would mean a lack of dining and nightlife, but not here; residents have an assortments of restaurants and cafes on Parliament — the usual suspects like Tim Hortons and Pizza Pizza, and also unique options such as Tender Trap Restaurant and JetFuel Coffee Shop. And of course, local watering holes like The Tilted Dog Pub & Kitchen and Wing House & Sports Bar.
The condo scene in Cabbagetown is quite diverse; there are a few modern high-rises, but also a great selection of loft residences, townhomes, and mid-rise and low-rise condos.
Do you love authentic lofts? Cabbagetown condos for rent can be found in desirable conversions like the Evening Telegram Lofts and Peanut Factory Lofts — bonus points for anyone who has a peanut allergy and moves into this former peanut factory to scare the life out of friends and family.
Cabbagetown is a loft heavy neighbourhood, but if you want all the flashy extras that come with a large condo building, properties like The Star of Downtown offer competitive amenities along with modern finishes.
Condos for rent in Cabbagetown are ideal for those who want to run errands on foot, and enjoy some nice scenery while doing it. For longer trips, there are multiple bus routes in the area, and streetcars on Dundas St E, Gerrard, and Carlton — with connections to College Station for subway lines.
Car owners can quickly reach the nearest highway by going east on Dundas for the Don Valley Parkway.
