Bounded by King Street to the north, Front Street to the south, Bathurst Street to the west, and Spadina Avenue to the east, the Wellington Place neighborhood borders the Toronto Entertainment District. The area is easily accessible by all means of transportation. It is connected to four major streetcar lines (Spadina, Bathurst, Queen, and King), two of which feed into the Bloor-Danforth subway line. It is close to the Gardiner Expressway and minutes from Union Station.
Bordering the Toronto Entertainment District, the Wellington Place neighborhood is close to fantastic nightlife, dining, shopping, professional sports teams and theatre. Minutes away from the CN Tower, the Rogers Centre, the Air Canada Centre and Roy Thompson Hall, there is always something going on!
For many years after the founding of the Town of Yorkin 1793, the Wellington Place neighborhood functioned as a base for the Military Reserve. In fact, the erection of private buildings was prohibited until 1833, when 18 lots were auctioned off to fund a rehabilitation of the Fort York complex. When the Northern Railway erected tracks south of Front Street, residential construction halted and the character of the area was altered. Construction of workers’ houses began in subsequent years – including those that line Draper Street, a Heritage Conservation District. Industrialization of the neighborhood occurred from the late-19th century to the present and now the area is undergoing a large amount of construction to bring it into its modern-day form.
