Mimico

Overview

  • Bounded by the Gardiner Expressway south to the lake, the Humber River west to Dwight Ave
  • While many of the original turn of the century homes and cottages are still in use today, many of the smaller one-storey wooden structures have been since replaced with multi-residential buildings over the years and more recently with single family new construction homes.
  • In recent months, Mimico has garnered much attention by being referred to by both the Toronto Star and Toronto Life magazine as one of Toronto most up and coming neighbourhoods in the city
  • Just a 10-15 minute drive to King Street West
  • Home to many creatives, artists and innovators, Mimico residents are a short walk to the stunning views of the lakefront
  • Popular community events include Lakeshores International Short Film Festival & Through the Eyes of the Artist – an art exhibition featuring 40 new artists each year
