King West Neighbourhood History

King West real estate is a popular community among young professionals and young families.

King West Village was once a part of the Military Reserves of the Town of York (before it became the City of Toronto). Toronto’s first ever cemetery was Victoria Memorial Square, which is now a popular neighbourhood park in King West Village. The military reserves that were once located in the Town of York were auctioned off in the 1830s and a “New Town” development was created. The “New Town” plans had included Clarence Square and Victoria Square which were to be connected by a tree-lined boulevard called Wellington Place.

In the 1850s, the character of this neighbourhood changed dramatically upon the arrival of the railway. King West transformed into a busy industrial and manufacturing area. More recently, a majority of the old industrial buildings have been converted for commercial and residential use.

During the early 1990s, the majority of manufacturing had moved out of the King West area and all that was left were large neglected buildings. The City of Toronto took action in 1996 by enacting the King-Spadina Plan in order to contract new investment and to rejuvenate the area. The plan was a huge success as several builders built new condominiums that attracted young urban professionals and young families. After the population started growing, several different restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shops started popping up and the neighbourhood completely transformed from a dilapidated area with old neglected buildings to a lively neighbourhood with a thriving economy.
