King West Village

The Origins and Development of King West Village

The King West Village is also commonly known as Queen West Village. The very deep history of this neighbourhood goes back to the 1850s. This is when Clarence Square and Victoria Square was joined together by the great Wellington Place Boulevard.

In the 1990s, King West Village had become deserted of industry, when all the manufacturing companies had moved out from the neighbourhood. Soon after in 1996, the City of Toronto began helping the neighbourhood build a community, they did this by enacting the King Spadina Plan (a plan to revitalize this Toronto neighbourhood).

Today, you can see that the King Spadina Plan had worked. Many new buildings were built in the area, thanks to Toronto’s marvellous developers. Restaurants and nightclubs quickly drew attention to King West Village, and many condominiums were built up to 20 stories high with underground parking. The condominiums cater towards the young and hip urban professionals. King West Village now offers some Toronto’s finest estate, shops, artist studios, as well as fashionable restaurants.

As mentioned earlier, King West Village offers some of Toronto’s best estate. You can find beautiful Victorian-style town homes sitting upon the exact same location as where some of Toronto’s largest manufacturing plants used to exist. The new Victorian-style town homes and condominiums are nicely complimented by the windy roads, trees, and local parks that make for a great walk or a fantastic bicycle ride!
