Neighbourhood watch: Why Bloorcourt is one of Toronto’s most diverse places to live
October 5, 2015
Here’s a great story from the Globe about a really cool initiative by two guys who live in Bloorcourt: They’re putting together a documentary about the people who make up this vibrant Toronto neighbourhood. It’s called the World in Ten Blocks and celebrates the mix of ethnicities and cultures in Bloorcourt.
The filmmakers believe that the neighbourhood is slowly gentrifying, but hasn’t forgotten the small business owners who have been there for decades. Fun fact: Bloorcourt is home to the only Nicaraguan restaurant in Canada.
One of the reasons I love this story is that the documentary will be a comprehensive snapshot of Bloorcourt, capturing the neighbourhood before it transitions into something else as all Toronto neighbourhoods inevitably do. Decades from now when the neighbourhood is completely different, it will be a nice piece of history.
Homes currently for sale in the neighbourhood range from ‘funky bungalow’ priced at $500,000 to a renovated detached home asking $1,388,800. If you’d be interested in an updated list of available homes in this neighbourhood, please feel free to call on me!
