Housing and Accommodations

The area’s residential streets are picturesque with detached and semi-detached house, if you’re looking for a high-rise property you’ll have to go east or west. The variety of homes here range from pre-war bungalows, English Cottages and grand Victorian mansions. Many of the homes date back to the early 1900’s with deep front porches and have large lots for Toronto’s standards. While many of the homes are occupied by single families, some have been converted into multi-residential properties. The area is attractive in more ways than one, but it’s going to cost ya.

HISTORY

Bloor West Village is something of a success story. After the subway line was completed in the late 1960s, people were traveling underground to downtown causing many of the area’s shops and businesses to close. From the struggles that the community was forced to face emerged the country’s first Business Improvement Area (BIA). They revitalized the area through physical improvements adding flowers, trees, and benches to start and eventually redeveloping the abandoned shops into an inviting community-driven neighbourhood.
