Yorkville

YORKVILLE
Yorkville has come a long way from its 1960s roots as a bohemian enclave of bands and bellbottoms, poetry cafes and peace signs. Glass and steel condos sit amongst historic storefronts, gabled roofs adjacent to modern lines. You’ll find art everywhere; galleries, fine art auctioneers, boutiques and appraisers abound. Fashion boutiques offer everything wearable, from women’s clothing to intimates to menswear, from home accessories to high-end jewellery.

But Yorkville isn’t just a retail mecca. It’s also a place of quiet streets lined and gracious historic homes, mature trees and perfect little parks.
THE ANNEX
The area surrounding the University of Toronto’s St. George campus has long been a favourite of smart, well-heeled city residents. A wonderful mix of historic homes and modernist apartment buildings, this mainly residential neighbourhood also has plenty of cheap and cheerful dining and drinking options catering to the student population.

Culture and entertainment abound: there’s the Jewish Community Centre at Spadina and Bloor, the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, and Trinity/St. Paul’s United Church, home to a variety of community events.


DESIGN ALONG DAVENPORT
Need an interior designer? An architect? Accessories for your new space? Walk east along Davenport towards Yonge for a huge selection of design and décor options, with plenty of boutiques, galleries and chic ateliers.


BLOOR STREET
You’ll find some of the country’s best shopping along Bloor. Everything from grande dames Holt Renfrew and Tiffany, to designers Gucci, Coach, Chanel and Prada, to staple brands like Banana Republic, Nine West and MAC line Toronto’s storied golden mile.
