At 5 St Joseph Street, FIVE is ideally situated within steps of the bustle of Bay Street, the shopping on Yonge and Bloor Streets, the parties on Church and the calming green heart of Queen’s Park in the University’s Discovery District. With everything at your fingertips, it’s impossible not to love living here. The shopping ranges from world class on Bloor to unique and funky further south. Cultural experiences also abound, with Mirvish’s Panasonic Theatre just up the street, the University of Toronto and Ryerson University nearby, the multi-use Manulife Centre and Varsity Theatre at Bay and Bloor, and the Royal Ontario Museum – Canada’s largest – not ten minutes’ walk away. FIVE’s neighborhood is a vibrant one, but one also steeped in history, just like the development itself.
Foodies have access to everything from trendy and authentic Spanish restaurant Segovia, to family run craft beer house Bar Volo or quick and ready, but always delicious, Vietnamese cuisine at Ginger. For those concerned with working off all of the scrumptious calories to be found nearby, the incredibly fun and unique Dynamic Conditioning Centre is mere steps up the street. For those in need of access to the wider city, FIVE is located close to Wellesley Station on the Yonge-University-Spadina line and not too far from the Bloor-Yonge station on both the former line and the Bloor-Danforth line.
