The true centre of the city, the neighbourhoods East of Gardiners Road and bounded by Princess Street and Bath Road are some of the most densely commercial sections of the city. With several locations in the area dedicated to retail or commercial space, you will likely find many options for any need you may have. It is a fantastic location for some of the senior living homes that have been developed recently. The housing would be considered newer as well with many balancing the location with character.
Located at the western edge of the city, Amherstview represents an interesting balance. While connected to the city, it is also a hub for Kingston’s western country neighbour, Lennox and Addington. This means the amenities serve both the local community, but also those in the wider county who need to drive further distances. On the east side of Speers Blvd., you will find older neighbourhoods with homes that have hit the stage of needing updates and upkeep, while on the west are new homes and neighbourhoods that are aggressively expanding up County Road 6. Amherstview has seen significant population growth over the last five years and while most of the amenities are found on the southern border adjacent to Hwy 33, the next few years will see significant growth to balance the community.
Located south of Bath Road and west of Sir John A. MacDonald Boulevard, City Central is a beautifully established neighbourhood with some great houses and easy access to the downtown core where you will find all the amenities you would ever need.

City Central is steeped in history with Kingston Penitentiary as well as Portsmouth Village which was originally built for the prison guards and their families. The community is home to St. Lawrence College and the West Campus for Queen’s University. Anything the community lacks is within a five-minute drive in either direction.read more
