Rafael Brusilow – Metro Toronto
Hip, trendy and increasingly popular with real estate deal-finders, Roncesvalles and High Park are communities in flux and on the move.
Long known as Toronto’s Polish neighbourhood, Roncesvalles has actually transformed into a very diverse neighbourhood of varied cultures and backgrounds in recent decades without losing its strong Polish identity.
In the stores along Roncesvalles Ave. you’ll find some of the best pierogies and pork schnitzels in the city in shops frequented by Poles and non-Poles alike.
The expansive environs of High Park itself give the area a natural beauty and attract plenty of residents eager to live near Toronto’s most iconic public park.
Average property value: Roncesvalles – $403,241, High Park – $468,292
Homes you’ll see: Like many of the homes surrounding the High Park area, late 1800s designs dominate with Victorian and Edwardian styles being the most common.
Bargain spot: The further you move from High Park itself the cheaper the homes generally become.
Notable locations: St. Casimir’s Church (156 Roncesvalles Ave.) draws Poles from across Toronto and serves as a spiritual centre for the city’s Polish community — particularly at tough times like the recent Polish plane crash in Russia. North on Bloor Street West, hockey nuts flock to Toronto Hockey Repair (1592 Bloor St. W.) and sister store Goalie Heaven (1590 Bloor St. W.) for a skater’s delight of equipment choices.
Hot spots: The Chopin Restaurant (156 Roncesvalles Ave.) and Granowska’s (175 Roncesvalles Ave.) offer authentic Polish eats and you can pick up great Eastern European groceries from a wealth of local bakeries and meat shops along Roncesvalles Ave. The Revue Cinema (400 Roncesvalles Ave.) is an old favourite among the celluloid crowd and specializes in theme and event nights.
Education: Humberside Collegiate Institute (280 Quebec Ave.), Keele St. Junior PS (99 Mountview Ave.), Howard Junior PS (30 Marmaduke St.), Fern Avenue PS (128 Fern Ave.), Garden Avenue Junior PS (225 Garden Ave.), St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Elementary (116 Fermanagh Ave.)
Getting around: High Park, Keele, Dundas West and Lansdowne subway stations and Bloor GO Train Station nearby. Dundas streetcar service on the U-shaped Route 505 from Dundas West Station, through the downtown to Broadview Station.
Final word: With easy access to public transit, close access to the beauty of High Park and plenty of varied, thriving independent shops nearby, it’s no surprise why Roncesvalles and High Park are increasingly popular with current and would-be residents.

The boutique condo concept seems to be growing in popularity of late with the recent and highly successful launches of The Address at High Park and 2 Gladstone. Buyers it seems, are quite enamored by the idea of living in a smaller low-rise building with minimal amenities in exchange for being in the heart of some of Toronto’s oldest and most established neighbourhoods.
ART Condos will be located on Dovercourt, just south of Queen street West in the heart of the West Queen West neighbourhood. Dovercourt might be considered off the beaten path by anyone living near the subway lines downtown, but this area is well-known by some of Toronto’s hippest and trendiest people. The area was put on the map a few years back when The Drake opened – and Queen West has never been the same. Although it is still a gritty haven for artists and creative-types, West Queen West is also now a hotbed of hip and brimming with new condo projects including 2 Gladstone, Westside Gallery Lofts and Bohemian Embassy.
ART Condos will be a boutique terraced 11 storey building designed by award-winning Oleson Worland Architects in collaboration with internationally famous and innovative Hariri Pontarini Architects. With 3rd Uncle’s cutting edge design, showcased at the Drake Hotel and MTV Headquarters, ART Condos is recognizably one of Toronto’s most innovatively designed condos.
ART Condo Features:
Approximately 9 foot concrete ceilings. Luxurious finishes include a choice of designer selected pre-finished engineered hardwood flooring in living/dining areas, kitchen, bedroom and den areas. Choice of porcelain mosaic floor tiles in bathroom with mirrored medicine cabinets and Caesar stone ledge.
