Richmond Hill has seen an amazing surge in new homes over the last several years. Along with this growth, recreational and leisure activities have kept pace and have been a significant attraction for buyers and sellers of real estate.
The eighteen neighbourhoods have changed dramatically over this time. Detached homes with a variety of modern styles, sizes, elevations and price points have exploded in Oak Ridges, Lake Wilcox (including Bond Lake), Jefferson, Rouge Woods, Langstaff and Doncrest. Semi-detached homes, linked homes and townhouses have sprung up in Westbrook, Devonsleigh, Crosby and Rural Richmond Hill. Older homes are being torn down and replaced with beautiful, luxury estates properties in South Richvale, North Richvale, Mill Pond, Observatory and Harding. Highrise condominiums are the new face of Yonge Street from Highway 7 north to Bloomington Road. The increased population will support the Viva Bus Service which in turn helps attract new home buyers.
Industrial subdivisions in Beaver Creek and Headford Business Parks, Crosby and Rural Richmond Hill provide jobs and residential opportunities to the increasing population. The Santa Claus Parade, the Winter Carnival and the Heritage Village Festival have remained important to the local residents, and are complimented by the many trails, parks and other local amenities that are important to the prosperity and well-being of the Town and York Region.
