Most of the Homes in ARMOUR HEIGHTS are Detached Family Homes.  The original Homes are 2-Storey with 3 Bedrooms as seen in the picture on the left above.  Many homes have been torn down and rebuilt into much Larger Homes with Main Floor Family Rooms.  These homes often dwarf the older existing homes as you can see on the right picture above. 

Armour Heights has become one of the more sought after neighbourhoods within Toronto. The quiet streets, family neighbourhood and the close proximity with the hwy 401, transportation and less than a half hour from downtown Toronto.

HISTORY

The area named after John Armour, was granted the concession sometime before 1837.  During the nineteenth century, he sold the eastern part of his land to the Hogg brothers, which later became Hogg’s Hollow.  The remaining parts of his property stayed in the Armour family until the First World War, when it was purchased by Colonel F.B. Robbins, who later built a large estate.  The Plans were put on hold due to the war.  He then decided to loan out the lands to the military, an air training facility was established.  After World War 1 the airfield became the base for Bishop-Baker Aeroplanes Limited.  The company closed in 1921 and the airfield became abandoned.  The air force returned in 1942 as an officer’s mess and training school and remains in service today as the Canadian Forces College.

Some development followed in the 1920s but the area was from the city’s centre to attract many buyers.  In the 1950s some streets were destroyed due to the construction of the 401. After both World Wars, development steadied and the farmland was transformed into middle class suburban housing by the beginning of the 1970s.

 

LOCATION

Armour Heights is bordered by Wilson Avenue to the South, Bathurst Street to the West, and the West branch of the Don River to the North and East. Highway 401 cuts through the centre of this Quiet Neighbourhood on the South.
