DON MILLSTORONTO, ONTARIO was established by E.P.Taylor, one of Canada’s most powerful Businessmen. He acquired over 2,000 acres of Farmland in Don Mills amidst a housing shortage after WWII. His mission was to transform this farmland and develop DON MILLS as Canada’s First Planned Community with 28,000 Residences, Industries, a Suburban Shopping Plaza, Schools and Recreation Facilities. This was North America's first Land Development of its kind. With the natural landscape of the Don River, Rolling Hills and Ravines, DON MILLS was the perfect fit for this kind of Planned Modernist Community where Neighbourhoods are isolated from Heavy Traffic by winding roads and cul-de-sacs.
Surrounded by major roads and highways, DON MILLS is nestled quietly in a community full of green space and many parks such as Edwards Gardens - Toronto Botanical Garden and Wilket Creek Park & Sunnybrook Park with their Riding School.
Winding Walkways, in between Neighbourhoods, the many Parks and Mature Trees throughout, makes DON MILLS a scenic, quiet and safe place to live; raise children; or Retire. It is a desired place to call home for First Time Buyers. Empty Nesters downsizing their Homes, Houses and wanting a Condo Lifestyle can stay in this safe and friendly Neighbourhood.
The Shops at Don Mills, an Urban Shopping experience and charming, vibrant, one-of-a-kind European-style village, has literally put “DON MILLS” on the map. This outdoor shopping centre continues the Don Mills Community Feel with its Town Square and Famous "Clock Tower". Enjoy a fresh brewed Organic Latte while enjoying a Concert or, a Hot Chocolate while watching the kids skate in the rink in the Wintertime.
Coming to The Shops at Don Mills, is an array of New Condo and Loft Residences. Cadillac Fairview / Fram Developments - "Reflections", "Liv Lofts" and now "Flaire" will be an wonderful additions to this fast-growing cosmopolitan area full of Designer Boutiques, Gourmet Restaurants and Specialy Shops.

The next focus is on the future building "Flaire", the third of seven planned residences.

Quiet, secluded, DON MILLS, TORONTO, Ontario was a hidden gem for a long time. Because of the higher Home Prices in the Central Toronto core, Don Mills is quickly becoming the Neighbourhood of choice with the property lots often 60’ wide and are in quiet little pockets with walkways, parks and schools close by.
And, Don Mills is where I call home. The generous Greenery, Safety and sense of Community is a big reason why I continue to live in Don Mills, not to mention the quick access to DVP, 401 and 407.

Don Mills has two Public Schools, a Middle School, Collegiate, Private School, as well as, Brighton School for Elementary and High School Students with Learning Challenges.
