    Buying a home in Little Portugal

    As the name suggests, Little Portugal is home to a large Portuguese population — most of whom showed up when the neighbourhood saw rapid growth in the 50s and 60s and many new immigrants moved into the area. With its convenient location just west of downtown Toronto, it was only a matter of time until the area was diversified, and in recent years, that’s exactly what has occurred.

    While primarily a residential area — this is not your typical neighbourhood. Streets are narrow, and lots are equally tight. Most dwellings in the area are either 2-storey detached homes with peaked roofs, or rows of attached houses.

    The area itself is in the midst of a gentrification, which is evident on side streets where recently remodeled homes reside beside dated residences, and brand new Little Portugal condos are popping up on every corner. Little Portugal might not be a large neighbourhood, but it has a huge selection of condos — with over 15 buildings and more in development.

    The push and pull of change is evident in businesses located on Dundas and Queen; taking a trip down either street will lead you past a variety of trendy new cafes, restaurants, galleries and pubs — sitting next to family owned businesses which have been in the neighbourhood for decades. Residents have access to a wide range of specialty shops, and diverse dining options; you’ll find an abundance of Portuguese restaurants, but also burger spots, pizza places, and a collection of international tastes.

    There are only a few schools in the neighbourhood — for this reason, Little Portugal condos tend to be geared towards young professionals — and green spaces are somewhat limited as well; McCormick Park is the largest, housing a playground, a baseball diamond, a basketball court, and an arena.

    Condo Life in Little Portugal

    Buyers have a lot of choice for Little Portugal condos, with prices ranging from incredibly affordable to quite expensive.

    Artists on a budget can check out Artscape Triangle Lofts which has the lowest price per square foot west of downtown — you literally need to be an artist to live here — while everyone else can try for a unit at Twenty Lofts. And for the most discerning buyers, there’s contemporary lofts at The Carnaby Condos or sprawling suites at Prego Townhomes I.

    Prospective buyers have their pick of mid-rises, high-rises, and townhomes — the trifecta of condo design. Amenities vary substantially, so if you want a more private experience with limited amenities you can go for townhome, or if you want all the extra bells and whistles — high-rises like Bohemian Embassy Condos have you covered.

    Most Little Portugal condos are located on the southern end of the neighbourhood near Queen, placing residents next to cafes, pubs, restaurants, boutiques, and streetcar lines — what more could you want?

    Transportation

    Little Portugal condos boast an 88 Walk Score — residents will have no issues running errands on foot. Public transit options are also excellent, with streetcars on Queen and Dundas, and buses on Dufferin, you’ll never have trouble getting to your destination.

    Drivers can quickly escape city traffic by going south on Parkside for Lake Shore Boulevard and the Gardiner Expressway.
