Bloor Street Revitalization
The stretch of Bloor Street West between Church Street and Avenue Road is the city’s premier shopping district. The Bloor-Yorkville district is also home to a collection of the city’s best hotels, which will soon include another aA project, the Four Seasons Hotel and Residences. Over the past four years, the district has witnessed the restoration and expansion of several cherished cultural institutions. The Bloor Street Transformation will provide a much-needed upgrade to the quality of public space in the Bloor-Yorkville precinct, in keeping with its cultural and economic stature.
Improvements include widened granite sidewalks, public art, new lighting and street furnishings, and continuous planting areas with mature trees, shrubs and flowers in raised beds. Project design was completed in joint venture with Brown + Storey Architects.
