Yorkville : The Neighbourhood

Yorkville was established as a separate village in 1830 before it was annexed into Toronto in 1883. Officially part of The Annex, it is considered one of Canada's most exclusive neighbourhoods. 

The Yorkville neighbourhood has been traditionally bounded by Bloor Street West to the south, though this boundary has been shifting further south as many new luxury condominiums and rental apartments have been and continue to be built along Charles St West. Most notable is the 1 St. Thomas building, where songwriter, rapper and Torontonian Drake recently sold his ~$4 million condominium.

The area is further delimited by Avenue Rd to the East, Yonge St the West, and Davenport Rd to the North. While the heart of Yorkville is concentrated along Yorkville Avenue and Cumberland St, many new condominiums have been built along Davenport Rd and now Yonge St, to take advantage of Yorkville's growing demographic across many age groups.

Yorkville : REAL ESTATE

Homebuyers looking to live in Yorkville will find a wide range of house and building types.
