York Uni Area

 

York University Heights, also known as Northwood Park, is on the north side of the city of Toronto. The neighborhood gets its name because it contains the main campus of York University. This area is most popular with the Italian and Chinese community but is home to many people from the Caribbean and South East Asia. It is located between Sheppard Avenue and Steeles Avenue east of Black Creek.

The majority of people in this neighborhood live in high-rise buildings; however, it also contains a significant number of detached and semi-detached residences, as well as a recent new urban development, the Village at York.

Village at York
The Village at York is one of the last major new-home developments within the City of Toronto including condominium townhouses, semi-detached and detached homes. First residents moved into the first phase of approximately 550 homes in the summer of 2005 A second phase, which started construction in 2007, adds about 300 more homes but includes no new townhouses. It is located just south of the York University campus, north of Finch Avenue.

Characteristics of the Village:

  • It sits on land purchased from York University by a real estate developer. First-time buyers were given no-cost memberships to York's athletic facilities and privileges at its libraries. Many residents of the Village are York students and staff.
  • The development's design is loosely based on what is called "new urbanism", the features of which include large population, garages opening to laneways, and plenty of balconies and terraces.
  • By being near the university it is very well served by public transit, including a TTC Bus Rapid Transit route along the York University Bus way between the university and Downsview subway station. The York University Commons, serves as a large regional terminal served by GO Transit, York Region Transit, Viva, Brampton Transit and Greyhound.
  • The neighborhood will be served by two stations on the Spadina subway extension. York University station will be located in the York University Commons, and Finch West Station will have an exit at the corner of Keele and Four Winds Drive, as pointed out in a layout recommended by the subway expansion environmental assessment.
  • A significant number of homes in the village offer -- or have been totally converted into - student housing.

The Village is served by a residents' group representing both renters and homeowners, which was incorporated in mid-2006. The Village at York Residents Association Inc. maintains its own website, containing news and local business listings.
