HISTORY

In the 1850s King West was a busy industrial and manufacturing centre, but by the 1990s most of those businesses had moved out, and the area was run down with neglected buildings. In 1996, the City of Toronto enacted the King–Spadina Plan designed to attract investment to revitalize this area. The plan worked: developers began to build new condominiums that catered to young professionals, restaurants and nightclubs joined the mix, and a vibrant downtown neighbourhood, now commonly referred to as King West Village, emerged.
