'Walkability' is also an interesting aspect of the quality of any given neighborhood. There is an interesting (and quite unique) webpage that was mentioned in another blog, providing 'walkscores' for any location or street address entered. (http://www.walkscore.com)
As a Toronto realtor I find it very useful.

I agree, Walk Score is a fantastic tool. It is a really fun and useful way to assess another one of Jacob's key criteria for a thriving city. Many thanks for sharing this with us and our readers.

A recent Globe article reports that Toronto has become more walkable overall:

But to my mind (and feet), the ring of so-called "inner suburbs" of Toronto (e.g., North York, East York, etc.) still has a way to go in this regard.

There is another aspect highlighted in the Globe and Mail report you mentioned - Toronto's blended downtown where office towers, retail shops and residential towers exist side by side. Yes, it is quite an exceptional downtown with a nice balance of residential, retail and commercial. Thus the above mentioned walkability of the city increases, too. The inner suburbs you mentioned have yet to catch up.
