St. Lawrence Real Estate & Neighbourhood History
St. Lawrence was home to Toronto’s first government and commercial properties. St. Lawrence was and still is home to several historical buildings including the South St. Lawrence Market and the North St. Lawrence Market. The South St. Lawrence Market served as Toronto’s first City Hall and the North St. Lawrence Market was used as the first farmer’s market. St. Lawrence also includes the King Edward Hotel (which was designed by the same architect as Casa Loma), the picturesque Gooderham Flat Iron building, St. Lawrence Hall and the St. James Cathedral.
A large amount of the St. Lawrence area was created from landfill in the early 1800s and was intended to be used as a large public park along the lake’s waterfront. These plans changed when the land was turned over to the railways by the city. This change of plans attracted industry to the area of St. Lawrence.
From the early 1900s until the late 1940s, St. Lawrence was one of Toronto’s leading industrial centres. During the late 1940s, Toronto’s industrial industry began to move outside of the city. This resulted in a period of decline for the St. Lawrence area. During the 1970s, David Crombie, Toronto’s mayor at the time, decided to turn the St. Lawrence area into the residential community it is today.
