Located in northern Scarborough, Steeles is a family neighbourhood, balanced with quiet residential streets and convenient dining and shopping options. Steeles has a decidedly suburban feel, and most residents live in large single family homes — 2 storey houses, world war II homes, and bungalows.
Retail stores and restaurants are evenly dispersed along the borders of the neighbourhood, and there are commercial centres and big box stores west of Victoria Park Ave and east of Kennedy Rd. The neighbourhood is home to a large Asian population, which is evident in the number of food markets and shops catering to Asian buyers.
Condos for sale in Steeles are a great choice for families, as there are 8 schools in the neighbourhood. Access to green spaces is a big selling point here as well, and there are parks spaced out throughout the neighbourhood; the largest of which is L'Amoreaux North Park, where you’ll find walking trails, sports fields, and a community centre. Kidstown Water Park is just south of McNicoll Ave, as is L'Amoreaux Sports Complex.
If you’re interested in condos for sale in Steeles, you have 10 buildings to choose from — all older high-rise towers. Compared to more modern Toronto condo buildings, floors plans are quite generous, and prices are much lower. One potential drawback is that there isn’t much variety, as most buildings are similarly styled and offer nearly identical amenities; if you've checked out Trillium Condos or Skypark Condos, then you have a sense of what to expect.
Steeles condos for sale tend to be clustered near Warden Ave and McNicoll Ave, for residents, this means bus routes are just steps away, and restaurants are within walking distance.
