About This Neighbourhood

New high-rise condos bunched up against heritage conversions, loft spaces & micro suites, and hidden flats above low-rise storefronts. All done with a certain local flair that makes our Downtown feel just the right size of urban. Local boutique shopping is the norm here, in the Design District around Herald St, Mosaic Village on Upper Fort St, and the intimate Lower Johnson (LoJo) boutiques. Bike or walk, you’re always near the waterfront as well as neighbouring urban villages.

Recent years have brought us new buildings like Legato, Era, Escher, Janion and Ironworks – with the Yates on Yates & Vivid, as well as the Hudson District, undergoing development now. With developers and the City working to revitalize historic buildings and walkability along the waterfront, coupled with the completion of the new Johnson St. Bridge, Downtown is currently enjoying some important rejuvenation.  Harris Green and Chinatown are two micro neighbourhoods likely to see even more change and growth in years to come.
