Discover Port Union Homes For Sale
Over a hundred years ago, when Port Union was first established in the 19th century, it was a small lakefront town well beyond the borders of Scarborough and Toronto. Yet as Toronto expanded and more and more people came to settle at the major centre, Port Union left its industrial roots behind in favour for an identity as an affluent, residential, lakeside community. Today, there are few traces remaining of the industrial lands that once lined the waterfront. In the 1990s, subdivisions grew from the shores along with paved walkways, bike paths, and parks.
The Port Union real estate market is characterized by some of the most prestigious homes in the area. Prices in this market often begin at $700,000 and extend well beyond a million.
