Bounded to the west by the 401 — this commuter friendly Etobicoke neighbourhood offers ample access to nature, but not the inspiring views promised by its name.
Richview is a family neighbourhood in every sense — there are schools for JK-12 in the Catholic and public boards, and the area is littered with green spaces; Westway Park has an outdoor skating rink, Alex Marchetti Park has walking trails along the Humber Creek, and there are soccer fields and a playground at Richview Park.
Residents of Richview have a small selection of restaurants, scattered around the neighbourhood — well know chains like McDonald's and unique restaurants such as Mayflower Chinese Food. Nightlife options don’t rival King West or the Entertainment District, but residents can relax with a drink at St. Louis Bar & Grill, and there are a few pubs to the west on Dixon Rd.
Most people move to neighbourhoods like Richview for single-family homes, but if you’re saving for a down payment and looking for a quiet neighbourhood, Richview condos for rent are ideal. There are a dozen buildings to choose from — townhouses complexes and traditional high-rises.
The big draw here is suite sizes — prices aren’t much lower here compared to Toronto neighbourhoods, but units are often larger. Families who are seeking condos for rent in Richview can look for townhouses at The Classics Townhouses, where all suites are over 2200 square feet.
Even high-rises in this area like Tiffany Place Condos and Golden Gate Condos don’t come with many amenities — townhouses offer none — so if you crave a bunch of flashy extras, renting a condo in Richview might not be your best bet.
Those who pursue Toronto condos for rent here will require a vehicle or public transit to run errands; there are multiple bus routes in the neighbourhood, many of which have service to Etobicoke North Station for GO Transit. Driving is the preferred method of getting around, and car owners can quickly reach the 401 via Dixon Rd.
