AVERAGE HOME PRICES
Stonegate-Queensway is a large community that encompasses a couple smaller neighbourhoods. The area has seen a lot of development since the 1980s, which has transformed it from a primarily industrial sector into a thriving residential community with a diverse housing stock. More than half of all homes are detached, ranging from two-storeys to one-and-a-half storeys to bungalows, though there are fewer of the latter in recent years as homeowners tear them down or ‘pop the top’ to build much larger two-storey homes. The community also has a combination of 1950s era lowrise apartments, newer condominiums and townhomes, providing a variety of price points for those looking to settle in, or move within, the area.
Just over 25,000 people live in Stonegate-Queensway, which has seen little population growth in recent years. An overwhelming percentage of residents are couples (83%) and nearly half of these have children aged 0-14. Close to 50% of single adults (age 20-34) still live with their parents. The median family income is $112,979. There are more homeowners (65%) than renters (35%) in the area.
A mixture of residential housing, commercial hubs and some industrial land, the community has experienced significant gentrification but there is still more work to be done, particularly along The Queensway. The attention it’s receiving bodes well for the east-west thoroughfare — a number of independent merchants and eateries have moved into the area, which are helping to create a new retail mix, and The House of Lancaster is no more, having been demolished in February 2018. A new condominium building, called Reina, is set to rise on the site of the former ‘gentlemen’s’ club, spearheaded by an all-female development team.
Away from the main strip, the pedestrian-friendly community boasts forest-reminiscent walking trails and spectacular outdoor spaces, including Jeff Healey Park, named after the late Canadian jazz and blues musician that features musical playground equipment, and the 3.1 hectare Queensway Park that boasts two baseball diamonds, two tennis courts, a playground and the newly opened skating trail.
Stonegate-Queensway is within a short commute of downtown Toronto via the Gardiner Expressway and the Go Transit station located in neighbouring Mimico, which provides convenient rail travel as far east as Oshawa, and Hamilton to the west. Commuters can connect to the Bloor-Danforth subway line via several TTC bus routes, including the 66 Prince Edward South (Old Mill station), 80 Queensway (Keele station), 76 Royal York South and 15 Evans (Royal York station), and 110 Islington (Islington station), among others. Stonegate-Queensway has a transit score of 70 out of 100.
