Etobicoke City Centre is a great neighbourhood right in the middle of the southern part of the former city of Etobicoke. Etobicoke City Centre has a character all its own- a mixture of detached houses with lawns and new condos. Far from a far-flung suburb, it’s surprisingly easy to get around even if you’re a one car or no car family. Take a look at Etobicoke City Centre- go west!
Etobicoke City Centre is bordered roughly by Islington Avenue to the east, Bloor Street to the south, Rathburn Road to the north and Brown’s Line and Martin Grove to the west. Dundas Street west is the main commercial street, and the one which features the most community amenities. Islington and Kipling subway stations are local and regional transit hubs, and offer parking so you don’t have to take your car downtown.
Etobicoke City Centre is exceptionally easy to get around. Etobicoke City Centre is located close to both the QEW and Highway 427, making it easy to drive downtown or to Pearson airport. However, driving is by no means the only way to get around in Etobicoke City Centre. The neighbourhood is served by two subway stations, Islington and Kipling. Although the end of the line, you’ll get to Yonge Street in less than half an hour, and you’ll almost always get a seat! If you need to get right down to Union Station, there is a GO Train station right next to Kipling subway station. Islington Station also hosts a large number of Mississauga Transit bus routes to take you to work or Square One, and there is also the TTC Airport Rocket bus which runs direct from Kipling to Pearson.
Homes in Etobicoke City Centre run from new condos, many with parking which is an increasingly rare feature. There are also detached homes with big lawns and driveways- and without the commute from north, east or west of Toronto! There are many excellent schools and parks, and you’re only a short distance from the beautiful Humber Valley.
Dundas Street is home to several restaurants and shops, from salons to fine food stores, and plenty of neighbourhood exclusives. If you need to furnish your new home, you’re also only a short distance from a large IKEA!
Etobicoke City Centre is a great neighbourhood in Toronto’s west end. With excellent amenities, transit, and the right mixture of space and big city feel and convenience, Etobicoke City Centre is sure worth a look!
