An Iconic Address.

An Elegant Tale

Founded in 1830, Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood had transformed into a bastion for the city’s wealthy merchants by 1875. Decades later, the district blossomed in grand style, with the construction of Toronto’s first luxury hotel—then called the Park Plaza—at 4 Avenue Road. Today the neighbourhood is home to endless luxury retailers and countless restaurants and cafes, running through a vast range of tastes, from grand dining at Opus, Café Boulud and La Société to local favourites like Trattoria Nervosa, The Oxley, and Dim Sum at Dynasty Chinese Cuisine.



Look south, and you’ll see Canada’s foremost research institution, the University of Toronto; across the street, the Royal Ontario Museum’s, Crystal, invites you into one of North America’s most essential collections of art and history, and to the east, luxury retailers line the so-called “Mink Mile” on Bloor Street.
