Cabbagetown Southwest is a residential neighbourhood with a collection of houses in a variety of architectural styles built in the late 19th and early-20th centuries. The study area’s initial development began in the 1850s with a significant development period in the 1870s and 1880s.

The Cabbagetown Southwest Heritage Conservation District Study was initiated in Spring 2018, and will include research, a built form survey, analysis and evaluation to determine if the Study Area warrants designation as a Heritage Conservation District. The final study and staff recommendations will be presented to the Toronto Preservation Board upon completion.
