M5V is situated in the Entertainment District; a neighbourhood that blends old and new with its mosaic of newly constructed office and condominium towers and reconstructed historic manufacturing warehouses, office lofts and artists’ studios. Indeed, while the Entertainment District is the picture of modernity today, it is steeped in a rich history. In the 19th century, it was an upper class neighbourhood that housed the Parliament Buildings of Upper Canada. It then transformed into a manufacturing district and housed many working class families. When the manufacturing sector began to diminish, the area fell into decline. Since the 1990s, it has entered a new and transformative phase and, today, it is the picture of economic growth and community vibrancy.
M5V thus presents residents with the best the city has to offer. M5V occupants can choose from two different streetcar lines along Spadina or Queen to move about the city – though it may be difficult to understand why anyone should want to leave the area! The Entertainment District is home to fantastic food, wonderful entertainment, and amazing nightlife.
For dining out, M5V residents can choose from a variety of restaurants, such as Victor Restaurant, whose executive chef David Chrystian was a competitor on Top Chef Canada, grabbing a burger at Grindhouse Burger Bar, or trying a gourmet burrito at Z Teca.
In terms of how to spend your free time, this neighbourhood is one of the best in which to enjoy yourself. M5V residents can take in a film at the TIFF Lightbox or, for a night on the town, residents can check out Crush Wine Bar, or the lounge at Bloke & 4th. Indeed, M5V is close to all the essentials. It even has the bonus of quality coffee at Dark Horse, a 10 minute walk from the condo. You can check out the rest of the great neighbourhood perks here.
