Favourite spot in the Junction: A stroll along Vine Avenue – because it's truly a perfect street. It's a magnificent example of "live, work and play", created entirely organically. On the south side, there's a great mix of family homes with an unexpected splash of modern. And on the north, there are some handsome industrial buildings duly preserved. Then, near its western end is a gentle urban playground and park. Perfect.
