Just move to leslieville. Similar downtown vibe but much more toned down.Unknownname wrote: ↑ I agree... Harbour front is much better in terms of living. I would yake Harbour front instead of ET. Lots of drunk and junkies bumming around at late nights and pissing or throwing up in any possible corner, lots of late night noise and party crowd, crowding and traffic jam during weekends party time which is every single weekend. Harbour front is much much better for taking daily walks or jogs, leisure walks, food, weekend activities/entertainment during summer at harbour front centre etc... But this is my take, someone else will probably have a different opinion or expectation...

Considering that pre-construction condos now are at $1200 PSF? probably yes.j2ether wrote: ↑ Thank you for the points. You are right. But, at Harbour Plaza for example, you are geographically right at core downtown. But with Gardiner north of you, you feel just a little outside of the city...
BTW, if you have any idea on Harbour Plaza, please let me know... Is it worth the 1000 PSF?

I agree with this and if you drive prepare to alter your driving schedule because its a disaster trying to get in and out of the harbour front condos due to the congestion from the sports games and rush hour in the afternoon and it's the worse kind of congestion because on everyone just wants to get home but every on ramp it takes like 30 minutes plus to get on the gardiner which doesn't even move lolRBK wrote: ↑ Harborfront you will feel isolated from the rest of the city due to the Gardiner. It'll feel like you're living in burbs. Speaking from someone who lived in that area it'll feel very far to walk to front st for example. Also during the summer weekends the tourists might be overwhelming. In the winter the whole area is a ghost town. If you want more of a downtown feel stay north of the highway and rail corridor.

Harbour plaza is connected to the path and it takes approximately 3-4 mins to union and front street.dpacto wrote: ↑ I agree with this and if you drive prepare to alter your driving schedule because its a disaster trying to get in and out of the harbour front condos due to the congestion from the sports games and rush hour in the afternoon and it's the worse kind of congestion because on everyone just wants to get home but every on ramp it takes like 30 minutes plus to get on the gardiner which doesn't even move lol
And walking from lakeshore to front or king feels like an eternity from down there. I am a big baby about this because I lived at Yonge and Charles so I had all of yonge st and the manulife centre like a 30 second walk
It's still a sweet area it's growing but if you want a vibrant community now entertainment is better

Regarding Harbour Plaza, you pay 1000 PSF for a unit not lived in before, which is a little more than entertainment district in which the condos I visited are about 3 years old. But I agree ED is more vibrant… I am not just sure which one is better investment-wise...
