High Park North
Located directly north of High Park, the neighbourhood of High Park North is characterized by its charm, gentle topography, and the delight of those who live there. Bordered by Bloor Street West to the south, Runnymede Road to west, Dundas Street West to the east, and Annette Street and Humberside Avenue to the north, this neighbourhood contains a large urban population that reside within the multitude of high-rise apartment buildings. This further offers numerous rental opportunities for both young couples and singles.
The commercial strip on Dundas Street West and Bloor Street West began to develop during the late 1800’s, with access to early Toronto industry and numerous storefronts. Its commercial centre began to boom with the construction of the Bloor-Danforth subway line, bringing in further traffic while facilitating the condo and apartment development of the residential neighbourhood. This has allowed the residents of High Park North to enjoy many social activities and opportunities, such as night life, diverse restaurants, local cafes, retail shopping, and much more.
High Park North is also of historical significance as it contains the first building in Canada that was designed by Canadian female architect Jean Hall in 1925 – a fourplex that still stands today.
