What’s good in the neighbourhood?
JAC is located in the Garden District, a sector of the downtown core known for its bustling city lifestyle. Just on the east side of Yonge, the Garden District envelopes most of the Ryerson University campus, Massey Hall, and countless shops, restaurants and attractions. Spend the afternoon getting inspired at the Art Gallery of Ontario, just a short walk away, or take in a movie at the charming Carlton Cinema.
Walking distance to the world-famous Eaton Centre Shopping Mall, the Garden District is essentially the epicentre of the city – with concerts and all kinds of city events being hosted in the glitzy Yonge & Dundas Square, and overflowing into the rest of the city. Festivals, parades, and cultural events make this neighbourhood a vibrant urban centre.
JAC is located in a singularly convenient crossroads in Toronto. You can hop onto the subway in five minutes from your front door to just about anywhere in the city, but for most needs and desires, you need look no further than the Garden District. Easy commutes to Ryerson University and George Brown College St. James Campus, makes JAC a perfect place for students to settle in. And easy walks to shopping malls, supermarkets and even St. Michael’s Hospital mean that everything is conveniently located – you’ll probably be able to see it from your window!
JAC’s walk score of 99/100 is essentially a perfect score. The Church-Yonge corridor of Toronto only continues to develop and boom as new projects like JAC bring more energy, more demand, and more supply to the already convenient central urban lifestyle.
