Bloor Street United Church – Built in 1890

Posted:

Bloor Street United Church, originally Bloor Street Presbyterian Church, is located at 300 Bloor St W (at Huron St on the northwest corner) in The Annex neighbourhood of Toronto.

Built in 1890, the United church was designed by architect William R Gregg in the Gothic Revival style. Bloor Street United Church received heritage status from the City of Toronto in 2005.

The church building is undergoing redevelopment and will be part of Cielo Condos. The residences will be poised above a 19th-century landmark. During construction, the parish is worshiping with St Matthew’s United Church congregation at 729 St. Clair Ave W and online. The redevelopment is scheduled to be completed in 2025.
