Queen West uncorked....

Check out this great article in Friday's Globe & Mail by Carolyn Ireland about the Queen St West and Dufferin area and check out the shot of 24 Noble St where I just sold a loft last week!

When city engineers smoothed out the quirky twist where Dufferin Street meets Queen Street West, they removed more than a traffic bottleneck.

Since the Dufferin jog disappeared in November, some of the area’s denizens say the cultural divide that separated eastern Parkdale from the fashionable part of Queen Street has crumbled as well.

“Everyone always said it would never go past the bridge,” writer Kerry Doole says of the local pastime of speculating about how far gentrification will spread.

If couples are now driving down from Forest Hill for cocktails at the Drake Hotel, they mostly haven’t ventured to the stretch of Queen between Dufferin and Lansdowne.
