Mimico

Welcome to Mimico

Mimico is a centre of urban development with a side of beautiful natural scenery. This lakefront location has all of the amenities of lake living with the excitement of new construction and a revamped neighbourhood. Mimico has been going through a new transformation with new builds and a proposed new train station adding to the neighbourhood charm. Humber Bay Shores is a waterfront condominium complex in the area with gorgeous views of the beaches and plenty of swimming pools to enjoy. 

 

It is considered a mostly urban area with great walkability and easy access to outdoor activities. Because Mimico is a waterfront community, you can find locals enjoying lake days, walking the trails, and taking in the views. As one of the oldest lakefront communities, Mimico is home to beautiful architecture. The recent redevelopment has seen even more beautiful buildings added to Mimico’s rich housing history.
