If your studio in downtown Toronto is starting to feel like an expensive closet and you’re worried about painting the walls because you’ll lose a millimetre of living space from your modest square footage, then it’s time to consider condos for rent in Eringate, Centennial, and West Deane.
Located in Etobicoke, this green filled neighbourhood has 2 highways within its borders, and is a great choice for growing families, or renters who are feeling claustrophobic. Toronto condos for rent in this neighbourhood are particularly well-suited to young families, as not only does the neighbourhood have great schools, but it also offers an abundance of recreation facilities such as Etobicoke Olympium and Centennial Stadium.
Residents have a small selection of restaurants spread throughout the neighbourhood, as well as specialized retail stores, and financial institutions. While this is neighbourhood is technically 3 areas combined, the living experience is largely the same in Eringate, Centennial, and West Deane.
This neighbourhood is often referred to as Centennial for Centennial Park, the sprawling green space found in the neighbourhood — we’re going to do the same here because that name is needlessly clunky. In additional to walking trails, Centennial Park has a plethora of unique attractions like a BMX Supercross Track, Centennial Park Golf Centre, and Centennial Park Conservatory.
There are 6 buildings within this neighbourhood’s borders; traditional high-rises, a modern high-rise, and townhouses. Traditional high-rises have very generous layouts and modest amenities, while the modern high-rise has slightly smaller units, but extensive amenities.
All condos for rent in Centennial have one thing in common — spacious suites. In fact, there isn’t a single unit in this neighbourhood below 700 square feet, and townhouse complexes like West Dean Park Townhomes offer 1600 square foot units.
Families will likely see the appeal of townhouses here, as units with over 1600 square feet of living space would fetch a premium in Toronto — in Centennial, they rent for below average cost.
If you’re planning to rent a condo in Centennial, then you’re going to need a vehicle or public transit to get things done; on the subject of public transit, it isn’t great — residents have a few bus routes but no other options in the neighbourhood. Car owners are much better off, and have an effortless drive to the 401 and 427.
