Welcome to St. Lawrence

Where history and gastronomy converge to create a neighbourhood that is as charming as it is flavourful. Nestled in the heart of Toronto, this historic area seamlessly blends its rich past with a vibrant culinary scene, making it a unique and inviting place to call home.

What to Expect

St. Lawrence Market is steeped in history, with its roots dating back to the early 19th century. Living here means being surrounded by cobblestone streets and heritage buildings that have been carefully preserved, creating a unique atmosphere that pays homage to Toronto's past. The unique historical architecture also makes it a popular location for film and TV show productions.
Young professionals have flooded to this area for its walking-distance proximity to the Financial District. Those who prefer a quieter neighbourhood will also appreciate the East side of King and Queen St for its lack of nightlife options.
George Brown College with its renowned culinary school is also located in this neighbourhood.

The Lifestyle

Residents in the area frequent the St. Lawrence Farmers Market to explore fresh produce, artisanal cheeses, gourmet meats, and international delicacies right at their doorstep. The market's diverse range of vendors and eateries make it a food lover's paradise, offering a delightful culinary experience every day.
Walk to work in the financial district or take the many streetcars and buses available to you in this area and connect to the subway within minutes.

What Not to Expect

Easy commuting by car. Although the neighbourhood has direct access to the DVP and Gardiner highways, these arteries become very congested during rush hour. Driving restrictions on King St and the many one-way streets can also make driving challenging in this area.

The Market

The neighbourhood features a mix of historic architecture, modern condominiums, and co-ops. A selection of older and larger buildings are available in this neighbourhood with a slightly more affordable price tag compared to the rest of downtown Toronto. Due to the historical nature of the neighbourhood, there are height restrictions to condos near the farmer’s market and those seeking a quiet low-rise building can find a selection to choose from.
A recent surge of developments in the area also provides a selection of high rises on the peripherals of the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood. With modern amenities and downtown skyline views, these high-rises add pockets of density to the area.
