Welcome to 2603 Bathurst Street, Suite 209
Ideally situated in midtown Toronto, this distinguished neighbourhood is representative of the most affluent residents in the city and often compared to the posh Rosedale neighbourhood. The Forest Hill district is essentially split into two distinct pockets – Upper Forest Hill and Lower Forest Hill – with Eglinton Avenue West being the dividing line. Lower Forest Hill was developed first and completed around the 1930’s. This neighbourhood is centred upon the Forest Hill Village on Spadina Road between Lonsdale Road and Heath Street West. Upper Forest Hill was first used for the Belt Line Railway (now the Belt Line walking/biking path) and industrial land and developed a little later on when Forest Hill could no longer be contained below Eglinton Avenue West.
These days many city-dwellers are drawn to this area for its diverse topography of gently sloping hills, winding roads and charming parkettes. This prime Toronto neighbourhood has managed to retain its small town charm thanks partly to its walkability and family-friendly vibe. Taking care of your errands or planning an evening out is a breeze as this neighbourhood is dotted with numerous coffee shops, restaurants, fashionable boutiques and services that deliver all the basic staples and more. Just a few minutes south, at St. Clair Avenue West you will find a huge Loblaws and even a trendy Joe Fresh, and to the east at Yonge Street, you can choose from an abundance of dining options. If you love the outdoors, the 14.5 kilometre Belt Line Trail is fantastic for a leisurely walk, invigorating run or bike ride.
Forest Hill is conveniently located within walking distance of numerous bus routes that connect passengers to Toronto’s rapid transit subway lines with Eglinton West station located just a short walk away. But that’s not all! The future Eglinton Crosstown LRT will get you around town even quicker. For those who prefer to move about the city by car, the Allen Expressway is easily accessed from Eglinton Avenue West and will give you a quick access to highway 401.
