QUEEN WEST

According to a Vogue magazine article, the Queen West is the second coolest neighbourhood in the world. Set against a backdrop of historic buildings, Queen West has one of the trendiest shopping scenes in Toronto. Toronto’s Art and Design District boasts an extensive array of menswear, vintage, shoe stores, and craft and sewing supply stores. It’s a goldmine for the fashion-hungry! At night the neighbourhood offers lively patios and bars and a variety of live music ranging from roots to rock at internationally renowned venues like the Cameron House, the Horseshoe and the Rex. Residents recharge with food from around the world at unique restaurants and cafes that are often open late.

Once run down or completely abandoned, former warehouses in this neighbourhood are now some of the cooler loft spaces to live in the city. The transformation of West Queen West into an vibrant residential condo market has made this area one of the city’s most treasured masterpieces.

HISTORY

In the late 1800s, Queen West was the area around the Canadian Pacific Railway Hub on the outskirts of the Village of Parkdale, beyond Toronto’s city limits. The Drake Hotel, which opened in 1890 followed shortly thereafter by the Gladstone Hotel, are two of the oldest landmarks in this charming working class neighbourhood that have been dramatically restored and refurbished. Today both hotels are prominent pillars in the revitalized West Queen West neighbourhood.
