Humber Bay
The new district neighbourhood search created in 2011 by Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) does not include a separate search for Humber Bay Real Estate; however, you can find this neighbourhood under the Mimico Search.

Humber Bay is a quaint, middle-income neighbourhood bound on the west by the Mimico Creek and on the east by the Humber River Valley. These natural boundaries have shaped the topography of this area, which features rolling hills and many mature trees.

Lots of new condo development is taking place along Lake Shore Blvd.  Some other notable landmarks located on the periphery of this neighbourhood include the giant Ontario Food Terminal, situated just south of the Queensway, and the Humber Sewage Treatment Plant discreetly tucked away north of the Queensway next to the expansive Humber River Valley parkland.

New Toronto
New Toronto is located along Toronto's western beaches. It is a neighbourhood in transition. At present New Toronto is home to residents from a wide mix of cultures and incomes and includes a large seniors population. Some of the selling features of this neighbourhood are the bicycle trail, convenient TTC and Go Transit service, affordable homes and quick access to downtown Toronto via Lake Shore Boulevard.
