An underrated and revitalized urban village.
Take the feeling of a small town, add in the excitement of a revitalized community, top it all off with easy access to the downtown core, and there you have it: Corktown.
There is a ton of promise and freshness in the area; cool new businesses are popping up daily and most of the condos are boutique. The neighbourhood is also at the foot of the Don River trail (perfect for cyclists) and is home to Underpass Park, where you’ll find a playground, skate park, basketball courts, and can’t-miss art.
The Corktown Common. It’s a great statement about the revitalization of Corktown itself: an underused area seeing its rebirth. This park isn’t just some grass and a bench – it was thoughtfully designed with wetlands, winding paths, a modern playground, a splash pad, a beautiful pavilion with public washrooms, picnic benches, and a public fireplace. Come for your morning jog, enjoy a day outside with the kids, or just sit back and relax; Corktown Common has something for everyone.
Corktown is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Toronto, so there’s a mix of older residents, young professionals, and families here. It’s really meant for anyone who is looking for urban living without sacrificing green space or a quieter community lifestyle.
The Real Estate Run-Down
In Corktown, lofts are plentiful. You’ll find boutique condos, hard lofts, and soft lofts, as well as older detached homes and row houses with tons of character. Walkable, bikeable, and transit-friendly, Corktown's location is a win-win no matter your transportation method of choice. If you want to drive, it’s also easy to hop right onto the Gardiner or DVP.
