Tree-lined streets and large lots have helped to turn this area into a trendy area that attracts growing families. The older homes are a draw: nearly 70 per cent of dwellings were built before 1960. Newer condominium developments complement those original homes, which are increasingly being renovated or knocked down and rebuilt. This neighbourhood also boasts an array of food and shopping options meaning that 98.2 percent of residents are within a 15-minute walk to locally owned and operated restaurants, delicatessens, and specialty shops.
