Historic Downtown


The Downtown living experience is still in high demand. From The Farmers Market, organic grocery stores, eclectic retail shops, and family and government services to a seemingly endless choice of pubs and restaurants, the Downtown core appeals to a vast audience of residents, shoppers and night life seekers. Options for housing range from century old semi’s to executive condo developments in amenity-filled high-rise buildings, and everything in between.

In recent years the area has been experiencing a renaissance as the Business Improvement Area (BIA) has brought in new retail, created Old Quebec Street, and improved the cleanliness. For entertainment there is the River Run Centre, a cinema at the Bookshelf Cafe, the Sleeman Centre (home of the Guelph Storm), and a colourful array of amateur musical acts performing weekly at each of the smaller clubs/bars. Historical sites and landmarks include the Church of Our Lady Immaculate, Guelph City Hall, The Armoury, Guelph train station, and Douglas Street. The City has thoughtfully preserved its historical attributes while blending in its contemporary vision. Ma and Pop shops, and new entrepreneurs dominate the retail landscape, banning big box retailers to the suburbs. Patience is the key to finding your new home in the Downtown core.
