Northshore’s character and charm come from its quaint cottages and restored ‘40s-style bungalows. Neighborhoods such as Northshore Heights, offering an organized community and well-designed houses, are popular among young families. On the other hand, condos such as One North Shore, Bridgeview, The Terrace at Frazier, and the recently constructed Bridge Tender are hot commodities for professionals of all ages.
