Markham Street

The restoration of the Markham Street heritage houses reimagines the street as a pedestrian-oriented avenue.

The 18 restored heritage houses (of a total 24 restored heritage structures) will be home to unique restaurants, cafes, bookstores, record stores and other retailers that reflect the distinct character of the neighbourhood. We are returning Markham Street to the vibrancy of its heyday in the 1960s, when rows of twentieth century residences housing galleries and studios lined the street, and artists sold their pieces on their front lawns.
