No. 1: The Junction Triangle

Average sale price: $949,108

The Junction Triangle is already a great place to live—and its best years are still ahead of it. A three-hectare ex-­industrial site, recently snatched up by the developer Castlepoint Numa, is in the early phases of being transformed into more than a million square feet of new office and residential space. The Museum of Contemporary Art will open early next year in a repurposed aluminum plant. And Metrolinx is building an elevated GO rail line over the freight tracks, with a nearby station to match. In the meantime, new businesses are sprouting all over the place. There are at least four microbreweries in and around the neighbourhood, and two supermarkets. The schools are good, too: Toronto Ouest, one of only 20 French-language ­public schools in the city, is on the neighbourhood’s southern tip.
