Milton, Acton & Georgetown all have the small town charm, and are close to the city

Like so many other areas surrounding Toronto, Halton Hills – including Milton, Acton and Georgetown – is seeing its own spate of new development, as buyers head out of the city in search of larger homes and lower prices.

And in these areas, the predominant new housing type is still lowrise, though, also like other areas, new developments typically offer a mix of singles, semis and townhomes.

Small-town charm

Despite their proximity Toronto, these areas still boast much of their small-town charm, however. Established estate properties and historic neighbourhoods are now being joined by new masterplanned communities, including homes for young families.

Milton, the largest and fastest growing town in the area, features newer amenities such as the Mattamy National Cycling Centre and Milton Centre for the Arts to complement Kelso Conservation Area and Rattlesnake Point. And don’t forget the prized golf courses in the area, including Royal Ontario, Rattlesnake Point, Greystone, Granite Ridge, Piper’s Heath, Georgetown, Halton Country Club and Hornby Glen.

Georgetown has a notable cultural vibe, with live theatres and art galleries, including the Williams Mill Visual Arts Centre in the historical village of Glen Williams, The Gallery at the Halton Hills Library and Cultural Centre, Beaumont Mill, also in Glen Williams, and many private studios.

And who could forget Acton, perhaps most well-known for the Olde Hide House, Canada’s largest leather store? This famous leather goods retailer isn’t just a shopping opportunity, however – though it is worth the drive to Acton. Indeed, the tanning industry has been an important part of the local history since the mid 1800s, thus this heritage and the Olde Hide House are forever woven together.

For those looking for more tradition retailers, Milton, Acton and Georgetown are all a short drive from Toronto Premium Outlets, located just off Hwy. 401 at Steeles Avenue and Trafalgar Road, which opened in 2013.

Nature’s doorstep

Perhaps one of the most appealing attractions to Halton Hills is its location at nature’s doorstep – alongside the Niagara Escarpment. Besides Kelso, the area also has some of the most beautiful parks and trails in the province, including the Crawford Lake Conservation Area, the Glen Eden Ski & Snowboard Centre and the Mount Nemo Conservation Area.

If all that isn’t enough, Milton, Acton and Georgetown are all also blessed with easy highway access. Hwy. 7, connecting Acton and Georgetown; Regional Road 8 (Steeles Avenue) between Milton and Brampton; Regional Road 25 connects Acton and Milton; and Hwy. 25 connects with Hwys. 401 and 407.

Location, location, location

Located in Southern Ontario in Halton Region, 60 kms from Toronto.

Etobicoke undergoing massive redevelopment

Etobicoke undergoing massive redevelopment

Latest News


Etobicoke undergoing massive redevelopment

In real estate terms, an area in transition is a good thing, since it generally refers to progress, development and things being on the upswing.

Etobicoke is just one of those areas.

Really? Etobicoke, that large, narrow north-south swath that stretches from Lake Ontario up to Steeles Ave., and shouldered by Humber River on the east and Etobicoke Creek on the west? With large, well established and affluent neighbourhoods?

Yes, one and the same – the west end locale with the funny name people often mispronounce (FYI the K is silent) – that wasn’t exactly in need of an upgrade.

Blessed with a strong natural location due to its proximity to downtown Toronto, easy access to the QEW and Hwys. 401, 427 and 27, the Bloor subway line and several major TTC and GO Transit hubs, Etobicoke has long been a sought-after residential location.

North Etobicoke, for its easy highway access, plethora of commercial ventures and lower priced real estate. Etobicoke Centre, for its proximity to the Islington-City Centre West central business district, and exclusive neighbourhoods with large, treed properties such as the Kingsway. And South Etobicoke, or Etobicoke Lakeshore, for its prime lakefront location and areas such as Humber Bay and Mystic Pointe.

Southern surge

But when it comes to new condo development and buying opportunities, it’s all about the south. Well, mostly the south, until very recently.

Etobicoke Lakeshore was the first to transition, with the former motel strip at Lakeshore and Park Lawn giving way over the last several years to dozens of new projects. Today it is one of Toronto’s hottest new condo destinations. Your location here is right on Lake Ontario, with outstanding views of downtown Toronto, along the Martin Goodman Trail for cycling and running, and close to the Gardiner to commute into the city and to the QEW to head west. TTC bus and streetcar service is quite literally at your front door.

The area could get another massive boost if a proposed redevelopment of the former Christie’s bakery site at Lake Shore and Park Lawn goes ahead. Owner First Capital Realty’s plan for the 28-acre site – known, at least temporarily, as 2150 Lake Shore – calls for 15 new residential and office towers, from 22 to 71 storeys, new parks and public spaces and employment.

Now the condo boom is spreading north, into the central part of Etobicoke with new developments along Dundas St. W. between Islington and the 427, and several more planned for the south side of Dundas just west of Kipling subway. New condos are also springing up along the 427 near Burnhamthorpe, appealing to those who prefer highway access over transit.

A little further west, the Cloverdale Mall neighbourhood may get a major facelift in the next few years, as QuadReal Property Group is proposing a comprehensive master-plan to redevelop the existing 32-acre mall property into an innovative and dynamic mixed-use urban community. The proposal involves transitioning Cloverdale with a re-envisioned retail offering, residences, parkland and greenspace, community uses and new streets.

Under construction

Indeed, construction will also be the order of the day in Etobicoke Centre. For years. Six Points intersection, known locally as “Spaghetti Junction,” is a complicated interchange where Kipling, Bloor and Dundas all intersect. To support future development in the area, the City is spending tens of millions of dollars to modernize the road and surrounding infrastructure. Plans include improved pedestrian and cycle access, wider sidewalks, more trees, street furniture and improved access to Kipling subway. The station itself is being expanded into a regional transit hub to link the TTC with GO Transit trains and buses, as well as Mississauga Mi-Way bus lines.

Location, location, location

Bordered on the south by Lake Ontario, on the east by the Humber River, on the west by Etobicoke Creek and Mississauga, and on the north by Steeles Ave. W.; population 365,143.

• Centennial Park

• Etobicoke Waterfront

Toronto – in demand and on the rise

Latest News


Toronto – in demand and on the rise

Largely considered the pinnacle of the condo boom we’re seeing these days, Toronto still does boast some good lowrise home options. Supply and pricing of those homes, however, is another matter.

That’s what happens when you combine a strong economy and rising population with limited new and resale home supply.

Indeed, the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB) is forecasting at least 10-per-cent price growth in the GTA this year to $900,000, up from $819,319 in 2019. And on the new home side, 2020 began on a strong note, with 2,106 total new home sales in January, up 65 per cent from January 2019 and 14 per cent above the 10-year average, according to the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD). The benchmark price for new single-family homes was $1.09 million.

Booming economy

“Toronto’s booming economy has brought with it housing affordability challenges that will continue throughout the next decade,” says Frank Clayton, senior research fellow, Ryerson University’s Centre for Urban Research & Land Development.

“Both the provincial and municipal governments must support a massive increase in the supply of all types of housing and tenures as priority number one and quickly transform the land use planning system to make this happen.”

Long considered one of the most multicultural cities in the world, Toronto boasts a collection of distinct communities, including East York, North York, Scarborough and Etobicoke.

Some of these areas, in fact, now represent areas of growth for new lowrise housing, given that larger master-planned communities of single-detached homes are fewer and farther between. Much of the focus now is on the socalled missing middle, those smaller developments such as townhomes that represent a real opportunity for new ground-oriented homes in the city.

Culture and entertainment

Find a way to buy and live in Toronto, however, and you likely will love it.

Toronto offers a vast array of culture and entertainment options, from the National Ballet of Canada, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, to the Art Gallery of Ontario, Royal Ontario Museum and more.

For the sporting sort, Toronto has a handful of pro sports teams – the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors, Toronto Blue Jays, Toronto FC and Toronto Argonauts – and is home to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is an annual event celebrating the film industry and attracts many movie stars and a-list players. And the Toronto Caribbean Carnival, formerly known as Caribana, attracts more than one million people every summer.

Other points of interest include the Toronto Zoo, the Ontario Science Centre, Harbourfront, Fort York, the Distillery District, Ripley’s Aquarium, the CN Tower and the Canadian National Exhibition.

And of course, as a large metropolitan city, great shopping areas include the St. Lawrence Market, Kensington Market, the Toronto Eaton Centre, Sherway Gardens and Yorkdale Mall.

Though a subject of some debate due to the challenges with keeping up with all the growth, transit and highway infrastructure is undergoing major expansion all over the city. The TTC moves almost two million people throughout the city every day on subway, buses, streetcars and LRT lines, while GO Transit links Toronto with the surrounding regions of the GTA. Highways include the 400 series (401, 403, 404, 407 and 427), the Don Valley Parkway and the Queen Elizabeth Highway.

Local Focus - Oakville & Burlington

Oakville & Burlington are on the leading edges of the GTA

Latest News


Oakville & Burlington are on the leading edges of the GTA

Long gone are the days when Oakville and Burlington, neighbouring locations off the northwestern shores of Lake Ontario, were sleepy suburbs on the outskirts of the GTA. Expansion in highway and transit infrastructure, economic and employment growth and new housing development are all contributing to what today are booming, self-sustaining, destinations.

Such growth and development also mean rising home prices, as these two markets are forecast to be among the hottest in Ontario this year.

Blessed locations

Blessed with strong natural locations close to the lake, the QEW, Dundas Street West and Hwys. 403 and 401, getting to and around Oakville and Burlington has never been a challenge. But recent improvements to transit service and highways have afforded even easier movement for businesses and residents.

Such growth has contributed to increasingly diverse local economies, strong in automotive and manufacturing, but not overly reliant on any one sector.

Besides being close to Lake Ontario to the south, and the Niagara Escarpment to the north, Burlington is also home to the Royal Botanical Gardens. It boasts more than 2,700 acres of gardens and nature sanctuaries, the world’s largest lilac collection and three on-site restaurants.

Down by the lake, the recently renovated Spencer Smith Park hosts an array of annual free festivals, including Canada’s largest Ribfest, the Sound of Music Festival, Children’s Festival and Lakeside Festival of Lights.

Similarly, Oakville boasts 3,500 acres of parkland, more than 300 kilometres of trails and more than 200 parks, gardens, off-leash dog parks, playgrounds, skateboard parks, splash pads, sports fields, tennis courts, two harbours and 31 waterfront parks.

For cultural pursuits, Oakville has the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts, and the Downtown Oakville Jazz Festival is an annual summer event that features a number of stages along Lakeshore Road East. The Waterfront Festival takes place in Coronation Park, including amusement rides, arts and crafts, food and drinks, concerts and nightly fireworks displays.

With so much development underway, it’s no surprise that more people are moving west – particularly those looking for more affordable homes than in Toronto. Residence here, however, has its price: Oakville is now one of the GTA’s priciest housing markets. Burlington is seeing its own home price growth spurt, though it is notably more affordable.

Burlington, in particular, is undergoing a change of sorts. In the 2018 municipal elections, residents voted in Marianne Meed Ward as new mayor, notably on her promise to address their concerns about over-intensification and development.

Location, location, location

  • Oakville population 192,832; Burlington 185,000, located in Halton Region at the northwestern end of Lake Ontario
  • Oakville distance from Toronto, 38 kms; Burlington, 60 km

Pickering and Ajax – enjoying the growth and poised for more

Latest News


Pickering and Ajax – enjoying the growth and poised for more

Located in the heart of Durham Region but just east of Toronto, Pickering and Ajax comprise one of the fastest growing areas in Ontario.

Pickering, for example, with a population already at about 94,000, is expected to grow to 190,000 people by 2031, drawn by the city’s divers and stable economy. Pickering is home to a variety of national and international companies, in industries such as energy, advanced manufacturing, logistics, and pharmaceutical.

The area also has available land and space to facilitate this growth. The Pickering Innovation Corridor boasts 800 acres of greenfield, prestige employment land, located along a limited access transportation route directly adjacent to the site of the future Pickering Airport.

Pickering is in major transition, with new growth targets set for the city. The new and developing community of Seaton, for example, is preparing to welcome 70,000 new residents and 35,000 new jobs.

Neighbouring Ajax is similarly prosperous, as the town has a well-deserved reputation for progressive thinking. Among the major projects underway is a redevelopment of the downtown, with new public spaces at Pat Bayly Square.

The future of downtown Ajax comprises a focus on “active, livable, innovative, vibrant and eco-focused,” according to the Town.

Lowrise living

Still sometimes considered suburbs of Toronto, Pickering and Ajax appeal to those in search of single-family and other ground-oriented homes, since, well, there is new lowrise home development in the area. And, like elsewhere in the GTA, “missing-middle” type housing such as townhomes, as well as condos, are also gaining popularity here.

Nautical Village, on Pickering’s waterfront, is a welcome natural amenity enjoyed by residents, with quaint shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as a splash pad and park. An expansive waterfront trail runs along Frenchman’s Bay and during the summer, Millennium Square hosts open air concerts.

Pickering and Ajax boast a number of golf courses, including Glen Cedars, Hawthorne Valley, Seaton Golf, Pickering Golf Club and Watsons’ Glen.

Ajax is home to Ontario’s only quarter horse racetrack, Ajax Downs, and for those who really love games of chance, there’s Casino Ajax.

Live and love in nature

Pickering is blessed with a natural location along Lake Ontario, with kilometres of waterfront greenspace. Add in more than 85 parks, sports fields and trails, as well as three conservation areas, public areas around Frenchman’s Bay and the Hydro Marsh, and it’s all a pretty unbeatable locale for nature lovers.

Ajax boasts its own expansive system of cycling and walking trails totally 74 kms. Veterans’ Point Garden commemorates the town’s history and is dedicated to the HMS Ajax, the DIL Plant and the employees who lived in Ajax during the World War II.

And being so close to Toronto, Pickering and Ajax naturally benefit from the transit and highway infrastructure expansion taking place in the area. Durham Region Transit and GO Transit, as well as Hwy. 401 as the main arterial hub west to the DVP into Toronto or east to Hwy. 115, getting around, to and from Durham Region has never been easier.

  • Pickering and Ajax are located just east of Toronto in Durham Region; Pickering population, 94,000; Ajax population, 119,670
