Canada’s fight against inflation has certainly weighed on our housing market – not to mention on the shoulders of every Canadian home buyer and seller. We continue to brace for impact as the Bank of Canada tees up another substantial rate hike before the end of the year. As we tumble through Autumn, we’ll be monitoring and reporting on everything related to Toronto Real Estate and continuing to discuss and debate the many facets of house & home!

Here is what you’ll find in our October 2022 E-Newsletter:
This month’s instalment of Dear Urbaneer, was entitled, ‘Dear Urbaneer: How Can I Escape Electrosmog For An EMF-Free Community In The Countryside?‘ This post is unique among other more broad shelter topics that Steve has addressed in this series, but it’s of particular importance to a growing group of global citizens who are seeking a solution to expanding electromagnetic fields. In fact, the situation is becoming so dire for a group of individuals in Toronto, that they’re exploring creating a housing community that is exclusively an EMF-free zone. They write: “I am concerned about the health risks associated with EMFs (Electro Magnetic Fields). In fact, I suffer from EMF hypersensitivity and, as a result, life in the city is challenging and uncomfortable. In fact, I am part of a growing community of people in the same situation, of whom many are exploring the possibility of creating a community outside of the city that would be EMF-free. Do you have any advice on how to find such an area and what we should be looking for?“. Read on for Steve’s answer!
Steve and the Urbaneer Team post weekly blogs that share our love of all things real estate and that celebrate Toronto! Below are three of our most well-read posts this past month:
The most-read post for October was, ‘Up-And-Coming or Over-And-Out? Cadillac Fairview’s East Harbour Development‘. It’s the largest commercial project currently in the works in all of Canada – and potentially the biggest flop in fulfilling how Canadians want to live, work, and play! Just east of the Don River – south of Eastern Avenue – sits a former industrial brownfield that was once where the Lever Brothers manufactured iconic Sunlight Soap Detergent. Containing a proposed 12 million square feet of real estate, the ambitious project is intended to be a vibrant, engaging, mixed-use community of offices, retail, apartments, and green space. Designed as a transit-oriented community – with planned stops on the new Ontario Line and a GO train station, when completed – the development will be easily accessible for the estimated 50,000 employees that will commute to work there. But what will the lived-in reality of this project be like? How will it affect surrounding neighbourhoods, infrastructure, and traffic? Read on!
Another popular piece was ‘Revitalizing The Port Lands On Toronto’s Waterfront’. This blog builds on the East Harbour blog, continuing to showcase how Toronto is undergoing a significant transformation from a former 19th- and 20th-century industrial port and rail centre to a global glittering metropolis centred around the contemporary economies of finance, information and technology. Not everyone is in agreement as to the planned revitalization of this waterfront real estate, but only time will tell! Read on.
We also had a great response to our blog ‘Why More Condominiums On The Danforth Is Good’. In this one, Steve offers an update and some insights on the intensification of The Danforth, including which condominium sites are currently in development or under construction along this major avenue in the City of Toronto. While some may initially be resistant to such development, Steve explains how increasing density is integral to the continued survival of the businesses along Danforth East. This blog also explores how the City of Toronto engaged the surrounding communities to help shape increasing the height and density for new construction along this main street. Take a peek!
