Bantama Supermarket is located at Finch and Weston Road, one of North Toronto’s newest vibrant developments and urban hubs. It has gained its popularity due to the newly developed high rise buildings in the area, as well as the ongoing development plans to build even more high rise buildings. Finch and Weston road is already a center for great shopping, restaurants and schools. There’s 3 large plazas at the intersection, with plans for more. Our market/grocery store, Bantama Supermarket, is located at one of the industrial plazas behind the Ultramar, but you can also find major banks such as CIBC, and TD bank, there’s also gas stations, pharmacies, the biggest fast food chains, family restaurants, retail stores, etc. Emery Collegiate Adult and Secondary School is also one of the highlights of this intersection, and if you go less than 10 minutes each direction of finch you will reach York University or Humber College.
HS4 Finch Investments Inc. has proposed development at 2370 Finch Avenue West (Seen above), to add to the former Primo Luxury rental buildings (Seen Below) at 2 Vena Rd. The Primo towers have been built first to set the example, as it is described as one of Toronto’s few rental communities that offer the same high quality amenities that you’d expect to find in a luxury condominium residence. Besides, the former 3 high standing buildings also known as the Weston Towers at 3390 Weston road, 3400 Weston road and 2374 Finch Ave West have already created a great community for this intersection and are currently being renovated, and even 3390 Weston road (Century Gardens) has been converted to a condominium building. Great parks have been developed such as the Humber River Park which allows walking and cycling trails that extend as far south as Lake Ontario. The intersection is also an urban transportation hub like no other, being minutes away from Highways 401, 400 and 427, no wonder why Drake Aubrey Champagne Papi made the song “Weston Road Flows”, get it? Now with the almost completed Finch LRT that will run down Finch, this will make transportation even easier to the intersection and our store and even the subway line that connects the 6ix to the rest of the Greater Toronto Area.
So next time you are at or passing by the intersection be sure to give us a visit to pick up your needed African groceries to eat and experience Africa while in Toronto, Canada.
