    REDISCOVER CORKTOWN

     

    Steeped in history, the neighbourhoods’ name is believed to have originated in the early 19th century when the area was an Irish ethnic enclave, particularly for Irish emigrants from County Cork. Another possibility suggests that this area was home to distilleries, breweries and cork-stopper manufacturers.

    In the 19th century, most CORKTOWN residents found employment at one of the local breweries or brickyards. Some of the original workers’ cottages can still be seen in the area. Examples of late 19th century British-style row-housing can still be seen lining CORKTOWN side streets such as Bright Street, Trinity Street, Wilkins Avenue, Ashby Place and Gilead Place.

    Today it is home to many wonderful new developments and young professionals who are buying and starting amazing new businesses to support their lifestyle. Health food stores, cross-fit gyms and lots of wonderful restaurants and bars are opening quickly. Close to Leslieville, The Distillery and Canary Park  offers a great lifestyle and investment opportunity.
