A Family-friendly Neighborhood.
The name Don Mills came, of course, from the Don River and from the fact that several mills were established in the Don Valley in the 19th century. There was a woolen mill in the area of what is now Edward’s Gardens near a tributary of the west branch of the Don. Later, another woolen mill was located on the east branch of the Don where the Don Mills Ski Club was located. A sawmill operated in the Don Valley in what is now the Donalda Club area. Amazingly, the Don River flowed strongly enough in the last century and early part of this one to turn the water wheels operating the mills, and at one point during a great flood, some of the mills were washed away.
The historic residences of pioneer miller William Gray are still in their original location overlooking the Don River on the Donalda Golf Club grounds. The Gray property was purchased in 1914 by David Dunlap who made his fortune in the mining business. The Dunlap family established a prize-winning “model farm” here in Don Mills. “Donalda” farm was visited by farming experts from around the world who came to inspect and marvel at its livestock and equipment. In 1952 son Moffat Dunlop sold the six hundred acres “Donalda” farm to the Don Mills Development Company which was headed by Canadian business legend E.P. Taylor. “Donalda” house was originally used as a sales office by the developers and now serves as the clubhouse for the Donalda Golf Club. Don Mills is recognized as the first planned, and fully integrated post-war community in North America. It is credited with laying out the blueprint for Toronto’s post-war suburban development and the building of contemporary neighborhoods.
Later on, it was named the second-best neighborhood in the entire city by Toronto Life magazine 2013. This modern, affluent community stretches from York Mills in the north to Eglinton in the south.
Don Mills was planned as a model town that would humanize urban life in an age of industry and the automobile. Initiated and financed by businessman E.P. Taylor and designed by Macklin Hancock, a young urban planner, it was built between 1952 and 1965 on 835 hectares of land between the west and east Don River valleys. Hancock’s planning team envisioned a self – contained community distinguished by consistent design principles and modernist style.
Amid a post-World War II housing shortage, businessman Edward Plunkett Taylor purchased over 800 hectares of land twelve kilometers north of downtown Toronto. What had been a rural farming community with a gristmill, woolen mills, and sawmills was, between 1953 and 1965, transformed into one of Canada’s most noteworthy suburban developments. Taylor hired landscape architect and planner Macklin Hancock to design the master plan for the self-contained community, based upon Garden City principles.
The land was divided into four quadrants, each containing a school, a church, and a park, as well as a range of housing types—all conforming to strictly enforced Modernist tenets of style and design. At the center of the quadrants was a regional shopping center, the Don Mills Centre, separated from the residential neighborhoods by a ring road—the ‘Donway.’ Parks and schools were linked by a system of walkways, which also connected them to the central commercial district, and to an outer greenbelt that included land on the banks of the Don River. To mediate traffic, roads in the residential quadrants were graciously curvilinear and often terminated in cul-de-sacs. In the mid-2000s the Don Mills Centre was demolished and replaced by the Shops at Don Mills, a retail and business plaza that includes the open-air Town Centre, designed by Quinn Design Associates. A model for subsequent suburban communities throughout Canada, Don Mills is among the first planned communities funded entirely by the private sector, and in 1997 it was designated a heritage site by the Ontario Heritage Foundation.
The actual construction of the Don Mills Development started on May 8, 1953, for the first home on Jocelyn Cres. Rather than single-family homes overlooking parkland, semi-detached houses were planned on sub-collector roads which joined The Donway. This enabled more residents to enjoy a view of the park or the ravine from their kitchen windows and compensated for their location on roads with higher traffic use. A system of walkways bordering the parks and schools encouraged pedestrian traffic off the main roads. Half a century after its founding, the neighborhood has aged beautifully, and many of the homes’ unique era-specific features (carports and flat roofs) add a character that’s fairly unique to this part of Toronto. The layout of this community was so successful that it’s considered the go-to model for new suburban development to this day.
Shops at Don Mills located on the southwest corner of Don Mills Road and Lawrence Avenue East is a family-friendly neighborhood landmark and meeting place. This contemporary open-air shopping center is designed with an urban village theme where shoppers can partake in exciting year-round events. The venue for these events is the Town Square which features a dramatic clock tower, a robotic water feature, and an oval ice rink. Gourmet food shops and restaurants are part of the mix. Shops at Don Mills. Everything old is new once again. When the former Don Mills Shopping Centre opened in the 1960s it began as an outdoor shopping plaza and eventually as times and tastes changed it was retrofitted into an indoor shopping center.
The old shopping center has now been transformed once again into the new Shops at Don Mills where once again shoppers can enjoy an outdoor retail experience. While outdoor shopping plazas may not be new to Toronto the Shops at Don Mills are like no other outdoor shopping experience ever seen before in Toronto. This well-conceived and designed retail showpiece have been built in accordance with the City of Toronto’s Green Development Guidelines. The new urbanism look and feel of this place are accentuated by the Town Square located in the middle of the development. The Town Square is flanked on one side by a magnificent water feature that twice every hour, erupts into a four-minute choreographed show. At the other end of the Town Square is an eye-popping clock tower that is actually a sculpture designed by famed Canadian artist and author Douglas Coupland. The symbols on this unique clock tower are models of houses that resemble those found in the Don Mills neighborhood.
