As the name suggests, Mount Olive, Silverstone, and Jamestown is a neighbourhood which combines 3 areas. All 3 areas are laced with green spaces and have winding residential streets, but houses tend to be larger in Mount Olive and more of its residents live in single-family homes.
Residents have a reasonable selection of retail stores in this Etobicoke neighbourhood — Albion Centre hosts a variety of stores for fashion, accessories, and technology. Additional shopping options can be found in strip malls throughout the neighbourhood, with more stores just west of the neighbourhood’s southern boundary.
Toronto might be renowned for its dining options, but this neighbourhood isn’t — beyond fast food chains like McDonald’s and Tim Hortons, restaurants are in short supply. Nightlife is also lacking here, with only a few restaurants which double as watering holes — Blue Sky Restaurant And Bar is located in the south end of the neighbourhood, but residents will need to venture elsewhere for more.
Mount Olive, Silverstone and Jamestown condos for sale are a great choice for families; the neighbourhood has community centres such as Rexdale Community Hub, sports fields, and playgrounds. Parents have a number of schools to choose from for their children, and there are riverside walking trails along the Humber River to the east.
Mount Olive, Silverstone and Jamestown — more often referred to as Jamestown — has over 15 condo buildings, and almost all of them are high-rise towers. The one drawback for Toronto condos for sale here is that most properties were built before 2000, so finishes can be dated. However, if you’re on a tight budget, condos for sale in Jamestown are very appealing.
Generally speaking, the price per square foot is quite low in this neighbourhood, and condos for sale in Jamestown come with some excellent perks — views of the Humber River, and amenities that include pools and saunas.

While some residents can run errands on foot in this neighbourhood, most will need a vehicle or public transit to get things done. Most of the neighbourhood has quick access to bus routes, and for longer trips, route 45 connects to Kipling GO for GO Transit.
