Port Union is a unique neighbourhood, thanks to its location, lush landscaping, and linear streets.
Port Union is well known for having many of the oldest and most beautiful pine trees in Toronto. These trees, along with other landscaping, makes the neighbourhood inviting to both residents and visitors.
In the early days of Port Union, the area was a waterfront village that attracted a variety of businesses with a focus on commercial fishing and shipbuilding. In 1856, a railway station opened in the area, making it more accessible to outsiders.
As the 1800’s came to an end, the shipping industry in Port Union had taken a hit which led to a period of decline.
In the 1940’s, however, things picked back up thanks to the return of local businesses as well as a rise in residential home construction.
Many of the homes in Port Union date back to the 1940’s, and include a variety of styles such as two story, split level, and ranch bungalow. There are also many newer, custom-designed properties in the area.
Port Union Village, a newer subdivision, including townhomes as well as detached and semi-detached homes, is attractive to many buyers thanks to its location on Lake Ontario.
Home prices in Port Union vary greatly, ranging from $200,000 on the low end to more than $700,000 on the high end.
