Queen West – Trinity Bellwoods

Like other gentrified areas of Toronto, the original “Queen West” is now lined with boutiques, chain stores, restaurants, tattoo parlours and hair salons. From Spadina to Bathurst, Queen Street is lined with street-level retail, with upper level apartments. Between Trinity Bellwoods Park and Dufferin Street is West Queen Street West, also known as the Art and Design District. For this one kilometre stretch, nearly every storefront on the north side is either a gallery, bar, or nightclub. Trinity Bellwoods is also a favourite place for local residents to walk their dogs. The ravine is also known as the dog bowl. The park is also home of white squirrels, the subject of urban folklore in the city. Trinity Bellwoods has been the site of anarchist bookfair, live theatre, performance art, and informal summer drumming circles. The recent explosion of art galleries a few blocks west of the park on Queen Street will likely only encourage this welcome trend. Queen West has become one of the most sought after neighbourhoods for real estate purchasers due to its uniqueness and hard loft conversions. It’s no wonder why developers are chomping at the bit to bring their boutique loft and condo projects such as the Candy Factory Lofts and Chocolate Factory Lofts into this neighbourhood.
