Regardless of which area you call home, the living experience is largely the same.

Residents can shop at The Albion Centre, which has a modest collection of retail stores for fashion and technology. There are restaurants in the area, though most are well known chains like McDonald’s and Tim Hortons; for more diverse dining and shopping options, residents can go west on Finch or east on Steeles.

Mount Olive, Silverstone, and Jamestown condos for rent are a great choice for families — there are well-regarded schools in the neighbourhood, parks such as Gihon Spring Park have sports fields, and there are athletic clubs and recreation centres like Albion Pool and Health Club, and Albion Arena.

For those desire Toronto condos for rent in the Jamestown portion of the neighbourhood, there are only 2 townhouse developments to choose from; however, there are a dozen buildings between Mount Oliver and Silverstone — all of which are traditional high-rise towers that were completed in the 80s and 90s.

The big advantage to renting in an older building is the generous allotment of living space — there are 3 bedroom units in buildings like Platinum on the Humber Condos, Platinum on the Humber II Condos, and Platinum on the Humber III Condos that rival the square footage of a single-family home, but rent for a fraction of the cost. Amenities are consistent throughout the area, and you can expect pools, gyms, and saunas in all high-rise buildings.
