With the cost of renting in Toronto continuing its steady climb, many Torontonians are considering new neighbourhoods — and if your idea of nightlife is relaxing on the couch in a spacious suite, then Steeles condos for rent will be quite appealing.
Located just east of the 404 in Scarborough, Steeles is a family neighbourhood with a suburban vibe — you can expect to encounter plenty of schools, residential streets with rows of similarly styled single-family homes and well groomed parks. Nature is a big selling point here, and sprawling green spaces such as L'Amoreaux North Park provide residents with picturesque walking trails, as well as sports facilities.
Residents have dining and shopping in abundance — there are large commercial centres in the east and west ends of the neighbourhood, with boutiques, big box stores, fast food chains, and unique restaurants. There are also a number of offices, and service based businesses, which makes it easy for renters to find employment in their new neighbourhood.
Steeles condos for rent are all located in traditional high-rise towers — there are at least 10 different properties — and have generous floor plans and pools, gyms, and saunas on-site. Condos for rent in Steeles don’t command the same prices as their counterparts in downtown Toronto, so you can save some money here as well in buildings like Skypark Condos and Trillium Condos.
The majority of buildings are situated near the major thoroughfares in the area — Warden Ave and McNicoll Ave — placing residents on bus routes and within walking distance of green spaces.
Some errands can be accomplished on foot in this neighbourhood, but nobody would ever describe Steeles as pedestrian friendly. Public transit users have multiple bus routes in the area, and Milliken GO is just east of Steeles for GO Transit.
Car owners will get the most out of this neighbourhood and can easily reach the 404 via Steeles Ave E.
