Monthly Media Roundup: July Edition

The tell-tale signs that summer is coming to a close are here: advertisements for the Ex start to play on the radio, and back-to-school supplies begin to appear in retail stores. July has been a busy one for Streetcar: we took part in the third Toronto Flower Market of the year and were also nominated for a NOW Magazine “Best of Toronto” Award. We’re honoured!

Inside Toronto covered Streetcar’s partnership with the Toronto Flower Market, writing “together, they’ll work on offering creative community programming for area residents.” Come see what the next Toronto Flower Market has in bloom August 8th.

Metro News wrote about the trend of live/work condos, noting that as freelancing and entrepreneurship become more popular lifestyle choices, demand is on the rise for living quarters that double as business space. Both Streetcar’s The Carlaw and The Carnaby earned top spots in Metro’s list of “Hot Toronto live-work condo neighbourhoods.”

This month, we also hosted a media tour of the Kingston Road Village and the Beaches neighbourhoods that included visits to Yellow House GalleryThe Art of Cheese, Collected JoyThe Beech Tree, The Chopping Block, and Ed’s Real Scoop. We had a great time showing around Toronto bloggers and influencers, and they had fun tweeting and Instagramming about the tour.

Urban Toronto wrote an in-detail article scoping out plans to restore the New Broadview Hotel. Writer Julian Mirabelli echoes everyone’s optimism for the project’s impact on the neighbourhood: “The New Broadview Hotel is just a small, yet exciting hint at the changes in store for the Riverside neighbourhood.” Our Riverside Square project is also mentioned with enthusiasm.
