Proposed Study Area
It is the intention of this Nomination Form to propose the boundary for the Bloor West Village HCD Study Area to be along both sides of Bloor Street between the Bloor Street West bridge over the Humber River, and Keele Street. Bloor Street is the most identifiable area of the neighbourhood and the proposed boundary designates the Humber River and High Park as bookends for the community, as they are two of the City’s important natural and cultural heritage features. The proposed East and West boundaries intentionally encompass the full public space as defined by adjacent private properties east of Parkside Drive and west of the Humber River. Within these boundaries exists the original border of the first BIA, as well as the current BIA borders. The borders chosen accentuate the existing pattern of built form and geographically define the Bloor West Village cultural landscape.
