Junction

Billed by many as the next West Queen West, The Junction is already attracting artists and entrepreneurs for its cheaper rents and converted industrial and warehouse spaces. A raw food restaurant and organic grocer are two recent additions to the Dundas West strip, joining established residents like Vesuvio who some say have the best pizza in the city. The neighbourhood is also turning into something of a furniture and design destination sporting three great shops in Post + Beam Reclamation, Forever Interiors and Smash.
