At its meeting in May 2005, City Council identified Queen Street West between University Avenue and Bathurst Street as a Heritage Conservation District Study Area. The Study Area only applies to properties within the University-Bathurst corridor that front on Queen Street West.
Study of this area may lead to its designation as a Heritage Conservation District under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act. The Heritage Conservation District Study is being conducted by a team led by Office for Urbanism, Fournier Gersovitz Moss & Associates Architects, William Greer and Angela Carr.
