Life and the City

Our City Spotlight series explores the neighbourhoods that make up Toronto and the GTA. Each month, we take a look at what makes these neighbourhoods unique and what we love most about them, as well as the current average selling prices of each home type in that area. The neighbourhoods which have been featured as a City Spotlight, are indicated by an asterisk (*) below.
