Bayview Village is most commonly associated with its namesake shopping centre and the busy streets surrounding it but there is so much more to this beautiful neighbourhood than commerce and condos. What most people from outside of the area don't realize is just how beautiful the winding, residential streets and cul-de-sacs are here.
Like much of North York, Bayview Village started out as a small farming community in the late 1800s. In 1954, a developer consortium led by Farlinger Development Ltd. began the modern transformation of Bayview with the goal of providing "contemporary living in the countryside".
Bayview Village was built around the natural landscape of the East Don Valley Parklands; the winding and sloping streets were designed so as not to compete with the beauty of the surrounding green space. The town planner, Dr E.G. Faludi, famously said "We will fit the community into the landscape and not the landscape into the community."
Why We Love Bayview Village
Because Its Shops Are Tops
While Bayview Village is best known for its high-end shopping at the Bayview Village Shopping Centre, this North York neighbourhood holds plenty of other shopping options for its residents including Ikea and the North York LCBO which has one of the largest selections in the city.
Because Green Is The New Black
We love how Bayview Village was built into the natural surroundings, following the contours of the land. We also love the efforts to keep this community green – from developers like Shane Baghai who incorporates wind energy and sustainable heat and water supplies in his condos to the long-standing community group The East Don Parkland Partners who organize activities to rehabilitate the East Don Parkland and East Don River.
