Bayview Village offers a modern-chic lifestyle to their residents without them feeling the need to head to Downtown Toronto. It has been compared to the likes of Toronto's trendy Yorkville, with an uptown feel filled with suburban characteristics. Surprisingly enough, with all the excitement it is still the perfect place to raise a family as almost half of residents are families with children. Bayview Village is complete with live-work-play-shop alternatives that never leave the residents short of entertainment.
Bayview Village is bordered north by Finch Avenue East, West by Bayview, East by Leslie and South by Highway 401. It is very easily accessible with direct access to three TTC subway stations (Bayview, Bessarion and Leslie), Oriole GO rail station and is right off Highway 401.
Bayview Village has one of the most reputable homeowners communities, The Bayview Association established in 1956. They monitor community initiatives as well as development and safety. With a 50% ratio of homeowners as members, they produce a regular newsletter for residents as well as host a number of events.
The Bayview Village community revolves around three staple landmarks: The Bayview Village Shopping Centre, the North York YMCA and the East Don Valley Parklands. The design of Bayview Village was completely built around the layout of the Parklands. The town planner, Dr. E.G Faludi said We will fit the community into the landscape and not the landscape into the community. And from that, Bayview Village was born.
With all this accessibility, Bayview Village has become a home for a mix of residents from families (due to the mass number of single detached homes) to single working professionals taking advantage of the surge in condominiums and direct access to the TTC lines. Surprisingly, 17% of the population is 65 years and older, which is very high for such a contemporary area. The adult population is characterized by Persian, Chinese and Korean coming from single-family homes with household incomes in the upwards range of $50K - $150K.
The majority of homes in Bayview Village were built between 1954 and 1964 during the rise of the area. Over 90% of these homes are single-detached, while a staggering 95% are occupied by homeowners. The homes have a mix of build style from executive ranches, bungalows and Georgian revivals. However, due to its every growing-popularity, there has been a rise is condominium development; specifically across the 401. This is quite different from the family style homes the area is known for, but is fitting in to the new characteristic of this trendy suburban getaway. Developers such as The Daniels Group and Concord have been heavily investing in the neighbourhood making it a condo haven for the everyday young professional.
It is hard to find something wrong with Bayview Village as it has something for everyone. With everything from a trendy lifestyle yet also, clean walking spaces there is no shortage of interest in this every-booming community.
