Davisville




At the intersection of Davisville & Yonge, this attractive neighbourhood brings a mix of high-end residential and commercial space. Having Yonge & Eglinton to the north and Yonge & St. Clair to the south—each adding to the available restaurants, shops and amenities—only sweetens the deal. Many of Davisville’s proud, single-family dwellings were built in the 1920s, while the 1970s brought condominium towers, supporting a trend toward higher density. According to a 2006 census, Davisville has a lower percentage of vehicle users than other neighbourhoods; instead, residents rely on TTC and self-propulsion for work and play. But, perhaps there’s a hidden agenda on the part of residents. High pedestrian traffic only makes it more sustainable and safe.
