Yorkville is Toronto's most cosmopolitan, dynamic neighbourhood. It is an eclectic mix of luxury condominium apartment buildings, commercial office towers, luxurious hotels, theatres, gourmet restaurants, a prestigious shopping district and picture postcard Victorian homes. Yorkville enjoys the cache of being situated in prime midtown, and the convenience of being within easy reach of the high energy of downtown Toronto.
The commercial heart of Yorkville is located on both Yorkville Avenue and on Cumberland Street. The transition to Yorkville's quiet residential pocket is gradual, as Victorian houses shift from retail to residential uses in a seamless pattern that is uniquely Yorkville. Homebuyers can expect to find many different types of residences in Yorkville from gleaming condo towers mixed with more established older condos, including a mix of high-rise and boutique buildings. There are lovely Victorian houses to be found on streets such as Hazelton Avenue with pockets of newer townhomes and semi-detached houses on the smaller interior streets.
Yorkville was subdivided in the 1830's, by a prominent brewer named Joseph Bloor and by Sheriff William Botsford Jarvis who also founded the Rosedale neighbourhood. It had gained notoriety first as a hippie haven in the 1960’s and was home to some of Canada's most noted musical talents, including Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Gordon Lightfoot, as well as literary figures such as Margaret Atwood, Gwendolyn MacEwen and Dennis Lee.
Yorkville's many amenities like world class shopping, fine restaurants, culture and the arts are steps away to enjoy and experience. The neighbourhood of Yorkville is a very unique and desirable place to live.
