Creating a portrait of your favorite neighbourhoods

Real Estate Sales Representative with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Toronto Realty

Through the eye of the lens, the essence of a neighbourhood can often be captured by photographic images often more powerful than words. A neighbourhood portrait can narrate through scenes of food, culture and activity, streetscape, architecture and buildings, and nature at different times of the day or seasons.

I love looking at visually stunning photos posted by others. As I set out to take pictures of my own neighbourhood in Toronto Regent Park which is currently undergoing a 69acres revitalization, I find myself taking the time to pause as I study light and shadow, details and texutres, and focus on what is unique characteristics I can capture to retell the story, and why new homeowners have moved into the area and made Regent Park their home. As a transforming neighbourhood with a 15 year redevelopment project, many of Toronto residents have not yet seen the progress and physical improvement. 

The renewed Regent Park is about making lives better through mixed housing, and taking vertical living to another level. If you would like to find out more about Regent Park Real Estate, please get in touch with us.
