LIVING IN CHURCH-YONGE CORRIDOR
Downtown Toronto residents come from a myriad of different backgrounds, and span the entire spectrum of the socio-economic scale. There is a large number of rental accommodations in this neighbourhood. This reflects the mobility of the population, which is comprised mostly of singles and couples. Ryerson University is helping to reshape Toronto’s downtown east core having recently purchased landmark buildings to expand their campus. One of these acquisitions is the former Maple Leaf Gardens which has been renamed Mattamy Athletic Centre and now serves as the home of the Ryerson University Sports and Recreation Centre. New condo developments are springing up all over the Church-Yonge Corridor which is gradually changing the character of this downtown neighbourhood from urban grit to City chic.
