Toronto – A City of Neighbourhoods
The Executive Underground Apartments, are located in the basement of #39 and #41 Homewood Avenue in Downtown Toronto. The houses are part of six Victorian row houses, built in 1896. Our neighbourhood is one of the central communities in the city. It is historic and is sandwiched between famous, vibrant, and popular communities.
On Homewood Avenue, #41 was renovated in 1996, and the basement was lowered as part of that renovation. #39 was completely rebuilt from the foundations up, as it had been an empty lot for some years following a disastrous fire which razed it to the ground.
The Executive Underground apartments are situated in a vibrant downtown neighbourhood. Newly opened just two blocks away is the fabulous Loblaws store in the old Maple Leaf Gardens hockey arena building. The “Great Wall of Cheese,” is spectacular storage for huge cheeses rising two floors. Several kitchens are perched high above the shoppers and visible to all. Many other kitchens abound, from the Grill to the Sushi Bar.

The Executive Underground is located just west of the area known as “Cabbagetown,” once a working class neighbourhood near harbourfront inustrial plants during the 1800s, it is now the surviving part saved from demolition and redevelopment by the early reformers and renovators of the 1970s, and now showcases beautifully restored Victorian inner-city dwellings. The Executive Underground is a renovated basement of a working-class row house built in 1896.
Cabbagetown streets are a delightful place to stroll and view the interesting unique architectural styles, the beautiful, colourful gardens, the scattering of parks. The whole area is a curious mix of gritty working class and the uber-professionals who have restored, renovated and upgraded many of the homes.
