While the vibrant neighbourhood itself offers plenty in terms of nightlife and things to do, it’s also within walking distance to Chinatown, the Theatre District (including Canada’s Walk of Fame, Roy Thomson Hall and the Toronto International Film Festival) and the Financial District. So whatever you find yourself up to in this busy neighbourhood, you’ll be able to walk home afterwards.
In the 1990s, most of the industrial and manufacturing businesses left their factories behind when they moved out of the area, which were then converted into authentic and spacious loft-style condos. King West is the ultimate in life/work balance with a number of these converted hard loft spaces that can double as workspaces as well as larger, more recently-built condo towers.
King West is home to young, urban professionals, and most of the commercial spaces here have a contemporary New York-feel as they’re home to advertising, design or technology companies. The area is also highly walkable and served by both streetcar and subway lines, and since almost everything you need is at your fingertips, a car is not needed.
