Top 4 Things People Pay More to Live Near

Options Has Them All, For Less! Part Two: The Village by Main Station

According to this article by Gail Johnson on Yahoo! Canada Finance the top four things we’re willing to pay a premium for when buying a home are:

- Rapid Transit

- Shops, Services and Restaurants

- Kids’ Activities

- Schools

But why should these basic conveniences come at a higher price? Options believes that people from diverse backgrounds and incomes as low as 20,000 should have access to these amenities and has been creating communities based on that belief for 20 years!

We already outlined these four conveniences at our Danforth Village Estatesdevelopment. Now lets take a look at The Village by Main Station:

Rapid TransitThe Village by Main station will be located on Trent Avenue just east of Danforth Avenue and Main Street, a 5 minute walk from Main Street Station.

Shops, Services and Restaurants
The Village by Main Station is a short walk to a variety of shops and restaurants that line Danforth Ave. including Danforth Shoppers World featuring a Metro grocery store and Target. The neighbourhood is home to a number of public recreation spaces, schools, and places of worship.

The centre also has a 25-metre pool, with six lanes and offers instructional swimming lessons people of all ages and abilities.
