If world war II style homes and winding residential streets call your name — then Beechborough – Greenbrook is a neighbourhood to consider. Once known for factories and industrial areas, this neighbourhood is in the midst of revitalization project, which is exactly what makes it so appealing to first-time home buyers; it’s also why now is the time to consider Beechborough – Greenbrook condos.
The neighbourhood has been critiqued for its lack of meeting places, parks and recreation options for children — and the criticism is valid. Some buyers may want to wait for the results of revitalization before deciding to lay down roots, but those who take the chance are very likely to see a nice return on their investment — as this is one of the few neighbourhoods where detached homes are still reasonably priced.
Eglinton Avenue serves as main street for this neighbourhood; it hosts a variety of restaurants, cafes, and cozy shops. There are a few public schools in the area, and a sizeable green space at Coronation Park. On the western edge of the neighbourhood there’s a large industrial area with corporate offices, food banks, and some service-based businesses.
While this York Crosstown neighbourhood doesn’t have much to offer for recreation, Eglinton Flats Winter Tennis Club and Scarlett Woods Golf Course are west on Eglinton, and just a short bus trip away.
Beechborough – Greenbrook condos are probably not at the top of the list for condo buyers; there are only a few buildings in the area, but you can bet that more will be in the works as the revitalization project moves forward. Building amenities are very much limited in older high-rises like York Square, but as result, you get low maintenance costs and affordable prices.
