    Buying a home in Bloor West Village | Runnymede

    The Bloor West Village and Runnymede area sits on land once owned by Jon Scarlett — Mr. Scarlett built a cottage on the property which he named Runnymede, when the land was later sold and divided for residential development, the neighbourhood adopted the name Runnymede — and so concludes our lacklustre history lesson for the day.

    Today, this neighbourhood is garnering a lot of attention from home buyers — as neighbourhoods next door like High Park are becoming too expensive, buyers are taking a longer look at Bloor West Village and Runnymede condos. While primarily a residential area, the neighbourhood has commercial spaces to the north on Dundas, in the middle on Annette, to the west on Jane, and to the south on Bloor.

    Whether you’re looking for dining, shopping, or entertainment — you have options here. There’s a smattering of international restaurants like Mad Mexican Restaurant and Pho VP, retail stores such as M Boutique, and lively pubs like The Cat Pub & Eatery. On top that, Humber Cinema is nearby on Bloor, and there’s a range of athletic clubs and service based businesses in the area.

    Parents have several great schools in the neighbourhood to choose from for their children, and for after school, there are dance centres, and youth programs. Green spaces aren’t as plentiful as some might hope, but with High Park to the east and the Humber River to the west, residents have great options nearby.

    Condo Life in Bloor West Village | Runnymede

    The Runnymede area takes up most of this neighbourhood, despite that fact, most people refer to this neighbourhood as Bloor West Village — and we’re not going to buck that trend. For many years the condo scene in Bloor West Village was stagnant, but more recently, this west end Toronto neighbourhood has caught the eye of developers. Buyers have a few buildings to consider here for mid-rise condos and townhomes.

    Prospective buyers can expect generous floor plans — townhomes like Oxford Court Townhouses offer suites that are over 2100 square feet, and because this building was completed in 2000, finishes are fairly modern. Low-rise condos such as The 23 at Baby Point still come with generous floor plans when compared to most modern buildings, and finishes are luxurious.

    Bloor West Village condos generally go for prices that are on par with most Toronto condos for sale. One potential knock on Bloor West Village condos are that amenities tend to be modest — in this case, modest is a kind word for nonexistent — so buyers who want all the flashy extras are going to need to look elsewhere.

    Buildings are evenly distributed throughout the neighbourhood — but there are no bad locations here, and regardless of where you’re situated, you have dining, shopping, and transit options within walking distance.


    Bloor West Village and Runnymede is a very pedestrian friendly neighbourhood, boasting an enviable Walk Score of 81; for residents, this means that the majority of errands can be accomplished on foot, which is especially true for residents near Bloor — but don’t overexert yourself trying to prove that.

    The neighbourhood is also great for public transit users, as there are bus routes on all major roads, and some stops on residential streets as well. For those who travel downtown for work, Runnymede Station and Jane Station are located just north of Bloor Street for subway service.

    Even driver’s have it easy here — which is often not the case in Toronto — as car owners can make their way south on S Kingsway and quickly arrive at the Gardiner Expressway, and once there, it’s easy to connect to the QEW or the Don Valley parkway.
