Sunshine Valley Authorized for Study as a Potential Heritage Conservation DistrictPosted: July 5, 2017
At its meeting of July 4th, 2017 Toronto City Council authorized a study be undertaken of Sunshine Valley as a potential Heritage Conservation District (HCD). The authorized study area is located in East York, northeast of the intersection of St. Clair Avenue East and O’Connor Drive.
Sunshine Valley is one of three identified neighbourhoods in Toronto designed and built by Wartime Housing Limited, and retains a significant number of the 197 clapboard sided Victory Houses constructed for returning World War II veterans and their families. The area maintains a strong connection to this history, as evidenced through the houses, street names, and the memories of first, second and third generation residents.
Sunshine Valley will be be considered in the next round of prioritization conducted by City Planning to determine which of the 12 authorized HCD nominations will proceed.
