Just south of Dupont and north of Bloor, between the CPR and Dufferin is the transitional neighbourhood of Wallace Emerson. Once an industrial area that housed only the working class of the CN and CP railways, now is home to an ethnically diverse population.
The area itself features narrow properties with primarily single family homes comprised of semi-detached and detached brick houses build in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. While there are a number of affordable homes in the area, a single family house will run buyers just over $500,000 to secure a property in the Wallace Emerson neighbourhood.
Who Lives Here?
The neighbourhood is multifaceted, consisting of a blend of residential, commercial, and industrial properties with ample schooling in both the public and catholic sector for families with children. Additional family facilities include the Wallace Emerson Community Centre just off Dufferin that offers community members an indoor pool, gym, seniors’ centre, playground, and games room. The adjacent outdoor park offers tennis courts, skating rinks, and hockey facilities with learn to skate and hockey programs for all ages. The Bloor/Gladstone Public library on Bloor offers a number of programs for both youth and adults to enjoy.
What's There To Do?
Shopping and dining can be done locally in Bloordale Village, or close by at Dufferin Mall or Galleria Shopping Centre. Each offers a combination of box stores, chain retailers, and medical services on site.
What About Commuting?
TTC users will find public transit easily accessible with connections to the Bloor-Danforth line at both Dufferin and Lansdowne, with buses servicing all major streets in the area. Motorists can travel via Bloor or Dundas to make their way in, out, and around the city.
