Celebrity watching could be the driving force for those acquiring Yorkville condos. You never know when you may encounter someone famous strolling down the street or perhaps sitting next to you as you dine in one of the many outdoor cafes. This upscale area of Toronto has long been known for the literary and musical talents that once called this area home, and occasionally return to visit their old haunt. Shopping centres such as Hazelton Lanes and Holt Renfrew Centre may be among the first in Ontario to see foreign retailers venture into the province, and as such this area has gained the reputation of being one of the most expensive places in Canada for retailers to lease space. You will never be at a loss for something to do in Yorkville: antiquing, visiting trendy art galleries or maybe just wandering among the Victorian homes.
Yorkville has become one of the most trendy condo neighbourhoods in Canada allowing owners to be close to the downtown, transportation, greenspace but still being in the know of Toronto's most unique neighbourhoods. We have seen business executives and wealthy downsizers flock to Yorkville to be close to work or the neighbourhoods they have moved from especially those from Forest Hill and Rosedale.
Yorkville is also known for larger size units even in the new buildings where we have seen newer buildings further south tended to have small units and very tough to find suites over 2,000 sq. ft.
