Heritage Designation in Cabbagetown South?

The city of Toronto has opened a community consultation on whether the area south of Carlton and east of Parliament should be added to the existing Cabbagetown heritage conservation district. HCD designation sets guidelines for renovation of facades of homes and puts restrictions on demolition designed to maintain the character of the community in the face of development pressure.

 
The city has contracted a team of professional consultants to research the history and architecture of homes in the area. As part of the process, the city is setting up an advisory committee to discuss what guidelines should be in place for renovations of properties in the district. The group will consist of representatives of community associations as well as Cabbagetown residents at large. Details of the city plan are available at: https://www.toronto.ca/city-government/planning-development/planning-studies-initiatives/cabbagetown-southwest-heritage-conservation-district-study/overview-cabbagetown-southwest-hcd-study/
Cabbagetown is the largest intact Victorian neighbourhood in North America and the area includes many homes built between 1854 and 1890. Historical information on every home in Cabbagetown can be found on www.cabbagetownhcd.ca
