The West Queen West Heritage Conservation District (HCD) Study Area stretches from Bathurst Street to Roncesvalles Avenue and encompasses a 3.5 kilometre stretch of Queen Street West. Queen Street emerged as a commercial high street in the mid-19th century and remains a vibrant commercial street in Toronto.
The West Queen West HCD Study was initiated in Summer 2016 and included research, a built form survey, analysis and evaluation to determine if the Study Area warrants designation as a HCD. The HCD Study recommended proceeding with two HCD Plans within the Study Area: West Queen West (Bathurst to Dufferin) and Parkdale Main Street (Dufferin to MacDonell/Jameson). The Toronto Preservation Board endorsed these recommendations in June 2017.
The HCD Plan phase will be initiated in Spring 2018.
