This blog thinks not,
A great mix of easy entry benefits such as rock-bottom rents when looked at compared to “village” type neighborhoods in Toronto, long leases and word-of-mouth about the coolness of the Junction…suggests something is happening in the neighborhood served food area.
Yet for these new food establishments, has the area’s understated profile kept its best joints from becoming destinations for the city’s traveling eaters. The closest subway stop is 15 minutes away (High Park). Of the public travel depends where you are in the Greater Junction Area (GT), we think, but it’s an issues, public transit from across the city involves, the use of both a subway and a bus.
One of the questions also raised is whether the new businesses can succeed or rather prosper in an area that’s not a destination, the Junction is just not that now as it once was for people across the great city of Toronto, such as the Danforth is) And, if they do succeed, how long will the area stay comparatively affordable for new businesses… simple tried and true restaurant offerings and not to mention unique offerings like Rawlicious, which had to leave.
….and to answer the never stated new question that Toronto’s elected members throw at the public now. Do you have a solution for the problem? Well no, but this is one of last remaining Beat Blogs in North America, and posing questions while reporting local happenings is what the movement was/is all about.
