History

Yorkville was named after the Town of York, what we now know as Toronto. Yorkville was incorporated as a Village in 1853.  In 1883, Yorkville had the distinction of being the first village annexed by the City of Toronto. Despite being part of a big city, Yorkville has always maintained its own identity. It had gained notoriety first as a hippie haven in the 1960’s, and then became known as a shopping mecca in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

Housing and Accommodation

Yorkville’s gentrified Victorian houses date back to between 1870. These historical homes exhibit many decorative features including ornamental brick patterns, gingerbread gables, cast iron fences, and richly landscaped gardens. Many of Yorkville’s houses are listed on the Toronto Historical Board’s Inventory of Heritage Properties. Yorkville is Toronto’s most cosmopolitan neighbourhood. It has wide appeal with domestic homebuyers from within the Greater Toronto Area, as well as across Canada and internationally.
