Niagara: King & Shaw

At 1030 King St West, DNA 3 finds its home in the King West Neighbouthood of Niagara. Located nearby to both the Fashion and Entertainment Districts, there is also plenty to do in Niagara itself. Formerly a working-class neighborhood, with many employees of the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific railway companies residing in the area. Niagara was part of the ‘New Town’ extension of Toronto, which underwent construction beginning in 1834. It became home to working class and new immigrant housing, mostly from Italy and Portugal, for much of the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, the neighborhood is undergoing exciting revitalization projects. 

 

With such a vibrant up-and-coming community around it, it is unsurprising that DNA 3 is surrounded by culinary delights on all sides. From Mildred’s Temple Kitchen or Bar Vespa in Liberty Village to Terroni for Italian, Cajú for Brazilian or the White Squirrel Coffee Shop all on Queen West, this area has something for everyone. This area is also popular among artists and is home to the 44 Wide Gallery for prints and canvasses. It also boasts Lamport Stadium and nearby Joseph Workman Park.

Bordered by Queen Street to the north, the Canadian National railway corridor to the south, Atlantic Street to the west and Bathurst Street to the east, DNA 3 and the Niagara neighbourhood is served by 504 King Streetcar as well as the nearby Bathurst streetcar, the Queen streetcar, Union Station and the Gardiner Expressway.
