The name New Toronto brings forth images of a modern metropolis, with shimmering high-rises reflecting off the peaceful waters of Lake Ontario. And that’s just what you’ll get in New Toronto — except that it’s not a sprawling modern city and there aren't towering high-rises; it’s just a neighbourhood in Etobicoke.
New Toronto in no way shape or form lives up to its lofty name, fortunately, there’s a lot to love about this neighbourhood; from its small town feel to the abundance of convenience found within its boundaries to the beach front location, it’s a wonder that New Toronto isn’t more in demand.
Condos for sale in New Toronto provide the perfect balance of quiet and convenience; Lake Shore Blvd W runs through the neighbourhood and serves as a gathering place for businesses — restaurants, salons, and specialized retail stores. Because Humber College has a campus in the neighbourhood and the Toronto Police College is located here as well, there’s actually a reasonable selection of pubs in the area.
New Toronto condos for sale are an excellent choice for families — the neighbourhood is littered with green spaces including the very sizeable Colonel Samuel Smith Park, which has walking trails and recreation facilities.

Buyers who prefer smaller properties can check out the 3069 Lakeshore Boulevard West Condos.
