As traffic congestion worsens & TTC service continues to be undependable, more & more people are choosing to walk as their main form of transportation!
It might not come as a surprise, but Toronto’s downtown core is home to some of the most walkable neighbourhoods in all of Canada & new construction developers are taking note of this sweeping change
“Walkability” is defined as “the extent to which the build environment is friendly to the presence of people living, shopping, visiting, enjoying or spending time in the area”.
Many areas come to mind when you think of “walkability” such as the Bay Street Corridor, Little Italy, University Ave, Kensington-Chinatown & the Yonge-Church area.
We are seeing more neighbourhoods shift to accommodate the influx of residents/visitors walking vs. driving/taking public transit as the added benefits of less traffic & cleaner air quality become more well known and sought after
