Woodbine Corridor doesn’t have the popularity that Leslieville or The Beach has, but the result is lower housing prices. It was a working class neighbourhood for the longest time. The older generation began moving out, and the younger, more eager flippers began buying fixer uppers and taking on renovation projects. The neighbourhood has its pros and cons. The business along the Danforth Ave, between Coxwell and Woodbine, is not thriving like it is to the east and the west.  However, with all the green space and good schools, the area is family friendly.

Real Estate: Semis built in the early 1900s are common; many of them have been gutted to the studs and completely redone, while others fared well with only a few renos, modern interior décor and careful landscaping.

Fixer uppers in the low-mid $300s are still easy to find. Realtors have been marketing these types of homes to builders looking to tear them down completely.

Parks: Fairmount Park, at the centre of the neighbourhood, offers families two playgrounds (one for younger children and another for older children), a soccer field, a baseball diamond, a cricket diamond, wading pool and tennis courts.

Hot Spots:

Upper Beach Café – 1917 Gerrard St E
This quaint little café (with a fireplace) serves fair-trade organic coffee, soups, salads and sandwiches.

Orangefish – 1824 Gerrard St E
Orangefish is a private shopping club that offers contemporary products, services and experiences that are unique, stylish and fun.
