Hover over each box to learn about The Vibe in The Junction.
The Junction runs west to Runnymede, east to Old Weston Road, just north of Dundas (to the tracks) and south to Annette. It closely borders the areas of Bloor West Village and High Park.
The Junction was dry from 1904-2001. When the alcohol ban was lifted, the area went through a massive revitalization, particularly within the last 5 years. Families, artists and hipsters have moved in and the real estate prices have skyrocketed. The main drag of Dundas Street West is now teaming with trendy bars, restaurants and shops. The area is celebrated with The Junction Summer Solstice Festival in June and The Junction Music Festival in September.
The Junction is serviced by the High Park, Keele and Dundas West subway stations, as well as the Dundas and Keele buses. It is also easily accessible to the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard.
The Junction is a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to it’s style. It was primarily developed in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Here you will find large 2.5 storey detached homes alongside narrow Victorian row houses, but for the most part, the lots are narrow, the homes tall and skinny, and the parking is in the back (lane, that is). There are also quite a few industrial and commercial loft conversions and a number of low-rise condo buildings in the area.
