Bloor West Village Avenue Study

Bloor West Village Avenue Study Overview

The City of Toronto is undertaking an Avenue Study to assess the land uses, transportation and servicing infrastructure, community services and facilities, built form character and redevelopment potential for Bloor Street West between Keele Street and the Humber River.

The Study is being conducted by a consulting team led by DTAH and includes R.E. Millward + Associates Ltd., WSP | MMM Group Limited, Swerhun, Taylor Hazell Architects, and J.C. Williams Group. The Study began in December 2016 and is expected to be completed by late fall 2017.

Through extensive community consultation and technical review, the Bloor West Village Avenue Study will evaluate existing conditions, develop a vision for the study area and establish recommendations for an area-specific planning framework to guide future development and infrastructure improvements.

Study Area

The Bloor West Village Avenue Study Area covers approximately 2.75 km of Bloor Street West between Keele Street and the Humber River and includes all properties fronting on Bloor Street. The Study Area may be further subdivided through the Study process to address changes in land use designations, local character and Official Plan policy directions related to growth, stability and transition.
