Riverside Square, a new master-planned community coming to 677 Queen Street E., will be located in one of the best served neighbourhoods in the city. Not only is the Streetcar Developments project close to downtown and right on the Queen streetcar line, the amenities located within walking distance are truly endless.

And as the busy holiday season gears up, residents will be glad to know that they can get everything they need for a festive get-together locally. Whether you’re hoping to have a cocktail night with a few friends or an elaborate dinner party, Riverdale has you covered with plenty of shops and boutiques.
