Because the neighbourhood was developed fairly quickly – over a little more than a decade in the first quarter of the 20th Century – the style and size of its homes is fairly consistent. These are usually smaller, detached or semi-detached brick homes, laid out along pretty, tree-lined streets. The houses feature wide front porches and pleasant back yards, and, as in areas throughout Toronto, many are being renovated into stylish homes for young families.
Bloor West Village became part of the City of Toronto in 1909. Its first residents were families of Eastern European background, and that flavour remains today, in the European-style delis, bakeries, and cafes along the stretch of Bloor Street W. between Runnymede Rd. and Jane St. Long a popular family neighbourhood, Bloor West Village is a bustling community served by two subway stations on the Bloor Street line.
With every kind of eatery, shop, and service that residents need located along the lively stretch of Bloor St. W. that is the neighbourhood’s main street, Bloor West Village is highly walkable and very livable. Its proximity to High Park provides easy access to outdoor recreation, year round.
