IF YOU HAVEN’T NOTICED, YORKVILLE IS GOING HIGH-RISE AND MORE YOUTH-FUL.

Yorkville is evolving from low-rise to high, as new luxury condo buildings are rising onto the skyline. “In the last 10 years, I think the Four Seasons was the catalyst bringing Yorkville further east,” said Jared Menkes, executive vice-president, with Menkes Developments Ltd. He grew up in Toronto and no doubt remembers the days of beatniks, hippies, coffee houses, clubs and occasional raids by the police. Don Kottick, President and chief executive officer of Sotheby’s Canada said “Many of the new condominiums are now offered at prices starting from $8-million. Yorkville is truly one of Toronto’s flagship luxury neighbourhoods. <So, no doubt there are big changes in the neighborhood – The Globe and Mail.>
