Neighbourhood Watch: Yorkville – Oct2016

Neighbourhood Watch: Yorkville - Oct2016

Everyone knows the neighbourhood because of its haute couture, fine dining, plush hotels, art galleries and high-end shopping, but there’s more to the historic Village than just a glass of fine Chablis.

Housing options
Yorkville has seen a building boom of late, with developers and builders getting in on the luxurious action. Density is the name of the game here, with the new Four Seasons Toronto condos, The Yorkville Plaza (the redevelopment of the old Four Seasons Hotel) by Camrost-Felcorp and Lifetime Development’s The Yorkville just some of the offerings. The area also has a stunning selection of historic Victorian homes.

Retail therapy

Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Escada, Chanel, Tiffany’s … does it get any better than the upscale designer boutiques that line the “Mink Mile” along Bloor Street? But for clever shoppers, there are a few treasures hidden amid the Prada and Yves Saint Laurent boutiques. Two consignment shops – Shoppe D’Or and L’Elegante — on Cumberland Avenue offer gently-worn designer apparel for a fraction of the original price. The iconic Hazelton Lanes, which first opened in 1976, is getting a major facelift, too.

Eat your heart out

Want a Big Mac? You can get that in Yorkville, but why not frequent one of the many iconic restaurants the neighbourhood has to offer, like Café Nervosa, Sassafras, Remy’s or Le Tour Normand. If you really want a burger, try Flo’s Diner. Want a drink? There is no better cocktail bar in the city than the Roof Lounge at the top of the Park Hyatt Hotel, followed closely by the cosy lounge at the Windsor Arms Hotel.

Sassafraz restaurant on Cumberland is a Yorkville landmark.
