What Makes Yorkville So Great?

Yorkville is regarded as one of the most popular shopping districts in the entire country. On either sized of the brick-paved streets are upscale retailers and gourmet restaurants that attract Toronto residents and tourists from all over the world.

Many of the original Victorian homes of the 1800’s have been converted to commercial spaces, as the area’s condominiums serve as the primary residential opportunity for Yorkville’s trendy, urban, high-end residents.

Types of Homes

Beginning in the 1870’s, Yorkville real estate has consisted primarily of Victorian-style detached and semi-detached homes. Many of those houses are now listed as heritage properties by the city of Toronto, and some have even been converted into commercial properties to maintain the charm of the neighbourhood.

When you look around Yorkville, you’re going to find some of the most prized luxury condos in all of Toronto. This includes the Four Seasons, 40 Hazelton, 133 Hazelton, Hazelton Private Residences, Museum House, One St. Thomas, One Bedford, The Prince Arthur, The Regency Yorkville, 100 Yorkville and Yorkville Plaza.

You Should See

While in Yorkville, shopping isn’t the only thing to enjoy. For ancient artifacts and art pieces you can’t buy in store, visit the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), or if footwear is your thing, walk down to Bloor Street and St. George Street to see the collection of the world’s largest collection of shoes at the Bata Shoe Museum.

Neighbourhood Hotspots

Along Bloor Street, between Yonge and Avenue, is the top destination for shoppers in Canada. The Mink Mile is the place to be for international high-end brands like Gucci, Prada, Tiffany, plus small boutique stores, antique shops, and art galleries.

Getting Around

The Bloor/Yonge and Bay subway stations are within walking distance, and the Don Valley Parkway is only 5 minutes away if you’re driving. Although, I recommend walking through the neighbourhood so you don’t miss a thing.
