Downtown Heritage Conservation District

Image of Downtown Heritage Conservation District MapThe buildings which comprise the Downtown Heritage Conservation District each relate to one of five stages through which the Downtown evolved from its founding to the recent past. In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries the Downtown was the region’s commercial, industrial, and service centre. There are approximately 400 properties in the Downtown Heritage Conservation District.

The Downtown Heritage Conservation District was adopted by Municipal Council on April 11, 2012 and designated under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act on June 18, 2013.



The westerly boundary of the Downtown Heritage Conservation District is the centreline of the Thames River, the south limits of Blackfriars Bridge to the north, Fullarton Street between Ridout Street North and Richmond Street, Dufferin Avenue and mid-block between Wellington Street and Waterloo Street, north of Dundas Street. The south boundary is the Canadian National Railway tracks. The east boundary stays west and north of the Citi Plaza and extends east to Waterloo Street north of King Street.

Eldon House, Harris Park, and Ivey Park are included within the Downtown Heritage Conservation District.
