|Overview||Corktown Homes For Sale||New Listings Alert|
When shopping for homes in downtown Toronto, Corktown was once a community that few buyers would consider, assuming that they had even heard of it. This is starting to change in a big way. Just as in every other affordable neighbourhood close to downtown, Corktown's quaint Victorian mews homes have been garnering much more attention recently. Inexpensive downtown housing has become rather scarce, which means homebuyers are looking beyond the well-known neighbourhoods such as Cabbagetown, and discovering pockets like Corktown in their quest to live in the heart of the city. But there is much more to this story...
Take a walk around Corktown and you will see signs of renewal all along its periphery. First came the Distillery District project to the southeast, with its Gooderham and Worts Distillery condos and lofts welcoming hoards of new residents to the area.
Next to come is the reshaping of Regent Park to the north. This multi-year mega project is set to rebuild and reintegrate the community with the rest of the city, erasing its stigma of the past.
Finally, the massive West Don Development project is underway at the east end of Corktown, along the banks of the Don River. An entire community will be built on this unutilized land, bringing thousands of additional residents to this central pocket in the city. With so much renewal happening at its steps, Corktown seems destined only to further increase its recent popularity.
