Humber Valley Village is about to undergo a major makeover and it’s time to start getting excited for it. A 3.8 acre site is on its way to the neighbourhood, adding to its ongoing urbanization. 291 The Kingsway Condos stands just north of Humbertown Plaza and west of Royal York Road in Etobicoke. The Elia Corporation’s development will span four mid-rise buildings. The towers will stand from 289 to 291 The Kingsway, and 1, 3, 5, and 7 St. Stevens Court. They will stand at a variety of six and nine storeys. The development will make 350 new condominium units available, as well as 156 rental units. Together, the project will house a whopping 506 units, offered in a variety of layouts. With such modern, chic and expansive additions such as these to the neighbourhood, this is the time to invest in Etobicoke.
The pre-construction development will include four buildings. Two will be comprised of two buildings standing 23 meters tall at six storeys, while the other two will stand at 34 meters with nine storeys. The development will offer a total of 506 units in a great range of layouts including 271 one-bedroom units at 646 sq ft, 217 two-bedroom layouts at 807 sq. ft, and 13 three-bedroom units boasting 970 sq ft. Residents will have access to amenities like private residential terraces, as well as outdoor amenities on the rooftop. Truthfully, the building will house suite sizes suitable to everyone from students with roommates, to business professionals, to families. Everyone and anyone will be able to enjoy the upcoming versatile development.
Investors will also want to pay attention to the developments happening in the family-centric neighbourhood. The area is ideal for young families with its abundant trees, and its nearby Humber River Valley Ravine. Its curvilinear streets and rolling topography sets the village apart from other ideas, offering a little something more. Stand out nearby sites include the James Garden, Princess Anne Park, Scarlett Mills Park, and St. George’s Golf and Country Club.
Etobicoke and its Humber Valley Village ultimately offers all the scenic, picturesque landscaping you could ask for. Family friendly spots to spend weekends are simply the cherry on top. In addition, investors will be impressed with the neighbourhood’s ideal access to the city. The site boasts solid walkscores, with a walk score of 68/100, transit score of 57/100 and stellar bike score of 79/100.
The development was made with transit in mind — available TTC routes to get into the city’s core include the 48 RATHBURN, 73 ROYAL YORK, and 30 LAMBTON bus. This also provides access to the main Islington station on the Bloor-Danforth line. Students and business professionals alike will both find it seamless to make it into the city. Students will enjoy being on a subway line, with navigable access to major campuses like the University Of Toronto, Ryerson University and OCAD. It’s also worth mentioning that York University is also now available via the new subway extension.
Conversely, professionals will enjoy having such convenient access to hubs like the Financial District and Entertainment District. The overall area of Etobicoke is also not short of food and drink options, with plenty of entertainment at the doorstep of residents. Investors will want to look more and more towards Etobicoke and its urbanizing areas to invest in property as it’s a city on the clear rise.
