2.5 Unstructured Learning Hours
This walking tour will explore the stretch of Bloor Street between Spadina Avenue and Dundas Street West. We will not only review current development applications, but also hear from community members, BIAs, and community initiatives. Bloor Street West has not seen the intense level of development that we would expect on a rapid transit corridor—yet. But with new policies and increasing demand, we are now starting to see more development activity, including some at a very large scale.
Highlights include meeting the architect/developer for a few of the following developments: 300 Bloor St W, Mirvish Village, Bloor Dufferin, and Bloor Dundas West; we will also meet with community groups such as Building better Bloor Dufferin, Bloor Annex BIA, and BIG on Bloor. Highlights include exploration of the Bloor-Dufferin site, mid-rise buildings, and the new transit hub at Dundas West.
This tour has substantial walking.
All tours will depart from the Hotel X lobby. Please gather at least 15 minutes prior to your tour time.
