Danforth Village, also known as East Danforth and is centred around (fittingly enough) the eastern end of Danforth Avenue. Surrounded by Riverdale to the west, Leslieville and the Upper Beach to the south and East York to the north, Danforth Village has gained popularity as a great Toronto neighbourhood to settle in because of its vibrant commercial strip and its proximity to the Bloor/Danforth subway line that runs from one end of the city to the other. Although on the smaller side and more often than not, semi-detached, Danforth Village homes for sale come in many different shapes and sizes. There is no shortage of Danforth Village real estate for even the most fastidious home buyers.
Danforth Village real estate experienced much of its development in the early 20th Century, from 1910-1930 or so, in the a similar style of smaller detached and semi-detached homes. Originally planned as a “streetcar suburb”, the streetcar line was replaced by the underground subway that bisects Toronto’s north and south in 1966. In the 1960s and 1970s, a number of high-rise apartment buildings were built near Victoria Park Avenue and Main Street that tend to house mostly lower income residents. Danforth Village is also home to a large Muslim population.
Danforth Village is home to approximately 30,000 residents with the average price of Danforth Village real estate hovering around $400,000.
