I strolled along Bloor St. West from Avenue Rd to Bay a couple of weeks ago, it is also known as Mink Mile.
It won’t take you long to realize why Bloor-Yorkville is known as Toronto’s Fifth Avenue. From designer boutiques carrying the latest fashions, to high-end galleries and antique shops, Bloor-Yorkville is a must-shop for those with sophisticated tastes and deep pockets.
The Lillian Massey Building is a Neoclassical building and was designed by architect George Martell Miller (1855–1933) and built between 1908 and 1912 for the University of Toronto's Household Science program created by Lillian Massey Treble, daughter of wealthy Canadian business man, Hart Massey. It presently houses the offices of the University of Toronto's Department of Classics and Centre for Medieval Studies, the offices of the University of Toronto's Division of University Advancement, and Club Monaco’s flagship retail store.
