Yorkville, founded by Joe Bloor as a residential suburb, has changed completely since it first gained its name in 1830. Initially the flowered beds and quaint residential streets attracted those from the bohemian culture including Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. The Canadian hippie capital of the 1960s was also home to Rochdale College, a counterculture education centre. As the years passed, higher density buildings were allowed in Yorkville by the city and the neighbourhood’s image slowly shifted.  Independent retailers and Victorian homes were replaced with high-rise condominiums and department stores and Yorkville eventually became what it is today – the most affluent neighbourhood in the city of Toronto.
