Mimico, it seems, may be on the verge of a real estate boom. Over the past few years, this South Etobicoke waterfront neighbourhood has undergone significant change. Offering affordable prices and a small-town feel, Mimico is ideally situated within 10 minutes of downtown.

Icon Homes is bringing Royal York Urban Towns, with one-, two- and three-bedroom designs, to Royal York and Drummond. The units, which start in the low $200,000s, feature stunning rooftop terraces and contemporary finishes. But perhaps the most appealing component of this development is the neighbourhood itself — Mimico is home to some fantastic local gems for you to discover.

Outdoor enthusiasts will love the wide variety of recreational activities Mimico has to offer. The area is home to a tennis club, three yacht clubs, a golf course, the one-of-a-kind Colonel Sam Smith Park skating trail and the MasterCard Centre for Hockey Excellence. Humber Bay Park, with its incredible view of the Toronto skyline, offers walking trails, basketball and tennis courts, a playground, beach access, a pond for fly casting and a fishing pier.

Experience some of the best shopping in the GTA at Sherway Gardens Mall, located just minutes away from the Royal York Urban Towns. The mall is currently undergoing rapid expansion and will open a Sak’s Fifth Avenue and a Nordstrom’s within the next three years. Mimico is also home to tasty eateries and a vibrant arts scene — start your morning off at the Birds and the Beans Cafe by the Lake and then head to an event hosted by Lakeshore Arts.

The neighbourhood is conveniently located within close proximity to two GO transit stations, and traveling by car to the airport or downtown takes just a few minutes. Mimico’s affordability and up-and-coming nature make it an excellent locale for first time homebuyers and new businesses.

Now is the time to take advantage of the opportunity to purchase your own Royal York Urban Town — and call Mimico, the small town in the big city, home.
