West vs. East? When deciding on where to live in Downtown Toronto, choosing which area to start your search can be a difficult decision. Both areas are very diverse and are excellent downtown locations with many great condo buildings and units to choose from. Narrowing the choice down by looking at sections East and West of Yonge street will help you to make the right choice. The vibe is definitely different on the west side of Yonge Street. Both bustling with life and entertainment, the west side tends to be more eclectic and full of hip and trendy restaurants, shops and nightlife. It doesn’t matter what day of the week or time of day, you will always see the west side full of life and activity. Condos on the west side of Yonge street stretch out further from the financial core than the East side as it is a bigger and more developed area. Living further on the west side will have a slightly busier but not impossible commute if you are headed to the financial district. Below are available condos for sale in downtown Toronto on the West side of Yonge Street.
