Downtown Peterborough: A Place to Call Home
Peterborough’s downtown combines beautiful nature with a strong community feel. Young urban professionals, empty nesters and reverse commuters looking for an alternative to living in Toronto find refuge in its small-town vibe.
A vibrant neighbourhood with great entertainment and lots to do, downtown Peterborough brings you the best in high-end retail, tech start-ups, grassroots initiatives and independent artisans, and a range of local services.
In the past five years, the area has exploded with an influx of real estate development in the form of converted lofts and new condos that offer a sleek and modern update to the historic architecture and intimate community feels.
New residents love the possibilities for outdoor adventure that come with living in the area. Spend a lazy Sunday at our legendary farmer’s market or tackle the nearby bike trails. By evening, enjoy globally-inspired cuisine downtown at a new restaurant, cheer on the Petes at a home game, or hit the bars for a fun night out.
The next five years will see the greatest shift in Downtown Peterborough’s urban core. This change can be attributed to the City’s focus on growing its downtown residential population.
With a growing population of individuals and young families moving into the area, we anticipate a continuing boom in both commercial and cultural development and diversification.
The downtown area offers a range of housing options for anyone new to the area, from brand new condos to open concept lofts embedded in the traditional architecture that gives Peterborough its scenic character and small-town charm.
