Glitz and glamour rub shoulders with fame in Yorkville and that's just the way Yorkville likes it.

Home to some of our city’s most exclusive shopping and living, Yorkville is quite possibly the schmoozing capital of the country.

It’s also one of those unique places in the world where you can catch a Rolls-Royce parked outside a coffee shop or pass by a conspicuously underdressed Hollywood A-lister casually walking their dog.

Yorkville’s rise into the stratosphere of high-end living is a shocking transformation from its roots as a progressive hippie den for bohemian culture in the 1960s. Talented Canadian icons like Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Margaret Atwood fuelled their creativity among Yorkville’s Victorian architecture and probably shared a few beers in the underground havens that today contain haute couture.

With its rough boundary running from Davenport Road to Bloor Street and from Yonge Street to Avenue Road, Yorkville is officially considered by the City of Toronto to be a part of the larger Annex neighbourhood.

Bloor Street in the area’s south contains the most expensive fashion shops in Toronto including many flagship stores for brands like Harry Rosen, Louis Vuitton and Holt Renfrew while car lovers can ogle dream machines at the Ferrari-Maserati store on Avenue Road.

Don’t expect to move in for anything less $1 million. Whether you enjoy celebrity sighting at the famous Sassafraz Restaurant or counting off the supercars parked street-side during dinnertime, you can't help but be impressed by Yorkville.
