    There are no units in it: it's retail at ground level, and amenities above.

    Sorry, I did mean the tower, not the house. Wondering if anyone on UT has inquired?

    I filled out the registration form but haven't received any returns other than the initial confirmation. I'm not really excited about living on Sherbourne and I think this will be way too expensive for me.

    Won't be hearing this in the near future. Area is changing rapidly.

    About 10 years ago I lived in both 565 and 545 Sherbourne and it's fine. In fact, on average, I currently see worse at Yonge/Carlton where I live now than I did when I lived on that part of Sherbourne.

    I'm not saying it's horrible but it's not on my top 10 neighbourhoods to live in the city list either. More than safety, it's just that lackluster street animation in this area that I find uninspiring. Not as bad as waterfront/gardiner adjacent condo neighbourhoods, but still.

    The potential is deffinitely there. Subway station is right there, Yorkville 10 min walk. Danforth 10 min walk, Rosedale just up the street. Bunch of projects either built or underway. New Freshco going in with a few other stores just north of Wellesley. St Jamestown cleanup proposal has been unveiled as well. The area is getting cleaned up pretty quickly and once it does it will be more of a destination than an area to turn one's nose up at. The question is how long will it take and whether you want to sit through it.

    The transit on Sherbourne St is terrible though. Not sure what they will do to fix it. 1 lane street that has a considerable amount of traffic. Wellesley is the same way.

    Like I said, I don't hate it as much so I don't want to split hairs but: Danforth is a 25 minute walk away, not 10. Also, how's Rosedale an amenity? Lastly, St Jamestown won't just clean up with all that tower renewal fluff. Toronto somehow thinks you can squeeze in more towers and magically revitalize a struggling tower in the park neighbourhood. No.

    I completely agree. I used to live at Yonge and College (for 9 years) and now live at James Cooper Mansion. I feel far safer in the Bloor and Sherbourne area, there seem to be more and more sketchy characters at Yonge/College and Yonge/Wellesley lately. I’ve been bothered many times over there, attempted robbed once, and no one has ever hassled me in the Bloor and Sherbourne area. I’ve lived here for 3.5 years and I feel this area is the best kept secret given its close proximity to the Sherbourne subway and 10 min walking distance to Yonge/Bloor and siginificantly cheaper real estate prices. There is a certain peaceful atmosphere on the side streets like Linden, Huntley, Earl, with the old houses and trees, which is kind of peaceful, quiet and quaint as well. I’m curious to see what becomes of Howard street in the next few years.

    Great tour ^. Views are definitely among the best in the city.
