    DISTILLERY DISTRICT

    The custom artsy ambience of Toronto’s Distillery District was no, accident, but was a successful result of vision and careful planning. Once a barren, desolate strip of Toronto,  the area is now a pedestrian-only mecca for artsy socialites.  In fact, the neighborhood has banned retail and restaurant chains from opening up there. Instead, the locals favour stylish galleries, along with unique food, fresh roasted coffee - Balzac’s coffee, and their very own brewery -  the Mill Street Brewery.


    Real estate options around this area are mainly condos with a converted loft feel, with more choices opening all the time thanks to the area’s expanding rep and is quickly growing adding the Canary District at Front and Cherry Street and the newly developed River City South of King Street between River Street and the Don River.  The historic Distillery District was originally home to the largest distillery in the British Empire. In Toronto's restored Distillery District you’ll find the continent's best-preserved collection of Victorian Industrial Architecture. It's a stunning backdrop for the local artisans, art galleries, restaurants, design stores, and cafes; most of which feature the most amazing natural light with expansive ceilings and column and beam finishes.


    The Distillery District is a one-of-a-kind place and is the place to see and be seen. One of Canada’s hottest tourist attractions, it’s just a short walk to downtown Toronto. You can always be sure that  something is happening at The Distillery.
