Toronto’s upscale Bloor Street West, particularly the stretch between Yonge Street and Avenue Road, is seeing considerable retail movement and redevelopment. This is the first of a series where we’ll be profiling some of Canada’s top retail streets, including what’s happening and what’s on the way. Bloor Street West is where we’re located, hence our decision to begin a tour in our own neighbourhood.
The portion of Bloor Street West between Yonge Street and Avenue Road is also referred to as the ‘Mink Mile’, reflecting the luxury retailers lining the street. Addresses on Bloor begin with number “1” at Yonge Street, ending with Strellson at the northwest corner of Bloor Street West and Avenue Road (at the base of the historical Park Hyatt Hotel) at number 170 Bloor Street West.
