Indeed, Smith was a big fan of everything English and this affected his ideas for the neighbourhood. By the 1920s, his ideas culminated into the development, which he named Kingsway Park.
"Tastefully appointed" traditional homes were to sit on well-treed and winding streets, to create an air of a wooded retreat. Smith also decreed that no owner could build a house without the approval of his staff, and he developed strict regulations against the cutting of trees. Most of the homes were designed in the Arts and Crafts style, which had become popular during that time.
Kingsway Park was a development aimed at affluent home buyers. Street names such as Queen Anne Road and Kingsgarden Road emphasize the appearance of English respectability and affluence that Smith was selling. Smith also created the Old Mill Restaurant in the community, whose Tudor facade and well-appointed interior inspired much of the English design in the Kingsway.
Despite its well-intentioned approach to traditionalism, the Kingsway was a neighbourhood built for the automobile, and all houses were built with discreetly placed garages, as per Smith's wishes.
