Yorkville Condos

Live in luxury in Yorkville – where the rich live and play. Condominiums in Yorkville are minutes away from some of the best shopping and dining in Toronto. Yorkville condos are some of the finest locations for chic living. Whether you are looking to buy a condo to live here or invest, Yorkville is one of the most desirable locations in Toronto.

Most people think of Yorkville traditionally running only from Avenue Road to Yonge Street, from Bloor to Davenport. But the historical boundaries are a lot larger. The original Yorkville ran from Avenue Road to Mount Pleasant and from around Dupont to south of Bloor. I have used the historic boundaries for the condos on this page.

Call Laurin at 416-388-1960 or or email him today if you are interested in any of these Yorkdale Condos! Please be sure to let us know if you think a condo is missing.

110 Bloor Street West Condos 110 Bloor Street West
Nondescript yet somehow spectacular, 110 Bloor Street houses suites that are no smaller than 1,100 square feet. Since it is 16 storeys high and houses only 120 suites, the large sizes of the units is to be expected. Right in the heart of the Bloor shopping strip, your credit card is in trouble if you live here. Amenities are decent and include the year-round comfort of an indoor pool, squash and racquetball courts, a well designed party room, well-equipped fitness room, terrace and 24-hour concierge. Some suites boast direct access to the rooftop gardens. Views are spectacular from any suite, but the multi-level penthouse suites offer a panoramic vista. Fees are reasonable for the area.

Yorkville is a district in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, well known for its shopping. It is a former village, annexed by the City of Toronto. It is roughly bounded by Bloor Street to the south, Davenport Road to the north, Yonge Street to the east and Avenue Road to the west, and is considered part of the ‘The Annex’ neighbourhood officially. It is recognized as one of Canada’s most exclusive shopping streets.

Founded in 1830 by entrepreneur Joseph Bloor (after whom Bloor Street, one of Toronto’s main thoroughfares, is named) and William Botsford Jarvis of Rosedale, Toronto, the Village of Yorkville began as a residential suburb. Its Victorian-style homes, quiet residential streets, and picturesque gardens survived into the 20th century, when it was annexed by the City of Toronto.

In the 1960s, Yorkville flourished as Toronto’s bohemian cultural centre. It was the breeding ground for some of Canada’s most noted musical talents, including Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Gordon Lightfoot, as well as then-underground literary figures such as Margaret Atwood, Gwendolyn MacEwen and Dennis Lee. Yorkville was also known as the Canadian capital of the hippie movement. In 1968, nearby Rochdale College at the University of Toronto was opened on Bloor Street as an experiment in counterculture education. Those influenced by their time in 1960s-70s Yorkville include cyberpunk writer William Gibson.
