Flashback to mid-2015 and most people were preparing themselves for a landslide fall in real estate activity across the Greater Toronto Area. Now, fast forward to today’s GTA and you will find that the traction for business places and homes stands unchallenged. In fact, during the first half of 2016, the GTA real estate industry has been rather robust. As prices in premium locations like Toronto continue to climb, homebuyers are looking for better, more affordable options. As a result, places along the southern border of Richmond Hill, like the Observatory Hill area, are seeing serious building and buying activity. Why? This locale is strategically located, sharing its cultural and natural landscapes with Richmond Hill and southwards, the cosmopolitan advantages of Toronto. In this discussion, we are going to put the spotlight on Richmond Hill culture, helping you understand why the town of Richmond Hill is inducing home buying decisions in its suburban neighbours like the Observatory Hill region.
Richmond Hill remains one of Canada’s most celebrated towns, home to multicultural communities. In fact, the entire Greater Toronto Area finds solace in the fact that this small town is a breeding ground for socio-cultural interactions, ensuring that hoards of job-seekers and office-goers in the GTA have something to indulge and explore, every day. Richmond Hill recently got the distinction of being amongst the most quickly expanding GTA municipalities—this is not surprising, since the outer Toronto area and settlers & developers from Observatory Hill region are falling in love with the town’s history and for being the nucleus of arts, music and crafts in the GTA.
Richmond Hill community is rather diverse, including homeowners who continue to live in historic, heritage buildings, new settlers, migrants from neighbouring areas, particularly from the GTA. Just view the map of the town’s infrastructure and you will understand why it continues to grab attention. There is an extensive green cover. The northern part of Richmond Hill, in fact the entire Oak Ridges area, has stringently protected meadows, and conservation programs ensure that natural lakes don't face the threat of unethical commercialization.
Another, major reason that makes Richmond Hill a great place to settle in, includes its public infrastructure, including the transportation facilities and public resources such as the Richmond Hill Library. The excellently planned transit system includes the York Region Transit with multiple buses for all the major routes. Combine this with the Local GO train service and Finch Subway Station and you have systematically planned connectivity. For GTA migrants, seamless connectivity with the Toronto Transit system means the daily commute doesn’t sap energy levels.
One visit to the library can help you get acquainted with the evolution of the town from its formative years, i.e. 1800 onwards. Today, the town’s culture includes a blend of old fashioned buildings and new, contemporary shopping corridors—just take a trip to Downtown Richmond Hill to connect with a laidback, more relaxed way of living. Every part of this scenic town has something new to offer. Move along Carrville Road and you will find the biggest, fashionable malls. More shopping destinations are emerging as shoppers from the Observatory Hill area and northern GTA settlers continue to explore the Town of Richmond Hill.
