Woven into the canvas of the community: a building that feels like your house, a neighbourhood that feels like your home.

Steps from the Don River and bound in rich history, Leslieville is a neighbourhood of short commutes and long conversations over great food. In the open and airy embrace of the East End, the buildings talk to each other. Beautiful buildings, each with its own unique character and timbre, reach up from the pavement and forward from the area’s rich past. Brownstones arch their eyebrows at each other, windows compliment doors across the street, and pillars stretch up to wave at each other from historic corners.

History for the Books

BIBLIO offers a forum for the street-smart and the well-read alike. Somewhere the pen is still mightier. A bacchanalia of ideas and points of view.

Leslieville’s rich history is evidenced by its iconic architecture. Once over the Queen Street Viaduct, completed in 1910, you’ll find streets lined by beautiful heritage buildings like the Broadview Hotel and our elegant neighbour, the Queen & Saulter Library, formerly known as Postal Station G, built in 1913.


Together these buildings tell a generational story. A tale of sprawling, multipurpose brick buildings housing tailors, studios, factory floors, and loft condos. Buildings where the models streaming in and out of studios meet young writers on the stairs. Where young photographers stare longingly out the windows as their motion-minded counterparts frame shots as a part of the city’s nascent film scene. Now these buildings are part of a bustling community that is changing at a steady pace all its own.
