Banbury-Don Mills Guides

September 11, 2013 - Updated: October 12, 2013

Don Mills feels as comfortable and safe as a favourite cardigan. To stroll its winding streets, still replete with post-war housing of the ’50s and ’60s, is to enter a time warp. Modernist architectural flourishes of the day still dominate: steeply peaked roofs, multi-dimensional façades, sleek carports. The neighbourhood features an immense variety of housing styles and, perhaps more importantly, the acknowledgement of the natural landscape in home construction—mature trees abound and glimpses of the surrounding ravines are common. In the north, some of Banbury’s homes even seem part and parcel of the scenery. The majority of the area remains pedestrian- and bike-friendly, and the troubled Sheppard subway line, opened in 2002, provides long-needed (if still underutilized) TTC access. A hotly debated extension of the line is currently in the works. The Don Mills Shopping Centre, which has long been a kind of town square, reopened in April 2009 as the upscale Shops at Don Mills. An entirely different kind of development.
