History of St.Clair Boulevard
The parcel of land on which the Boulevard was built was owned by the Rutherfords, whose house on the corner of St. Clair and Delaware was razed to complete the construction of the Boulevard which was started in 1913 and was completed before 1930.Each home is architecturally unique.
What the FRESH
- In 2002 the owners applied to heritage planning and development to add new acrylic waterproof fabric awnings to windows on the front (west) façade and the side (south elevation.
- Awnings were previously installed over the windows at 175 St. Clair Boulevard, however they were removed due to deterioration and poor performance.
- There are no awnings today, so I'm guessing this was never approved or the owner changed their mind
- Homes within seven designated heritage districts in Hamilton are on average worth double those in surrounding neighbourhoods, a city research firm has found.
- The Centre for Community Study, a nonprofit urban research group, found the average property value difference between 323 homes within heritage districts and the other homes in the same ward was about six percentage points higher in 2012 than in 2010.
- The most marked difference this year happened in the Durand-Markland heritage district. The average value of the 46 homes within the district was $507,977, versus $173,400 within the entire area of Ward 2. That’s a difference of 193 per cent.
- The difference in the St. Clair Avenue district was 139 per cent, with homes in the designated area valued at an average of $330,434 compared to the entire Ward 3, at $138,300.
- There are about 700 designated heritage properties in Hamilton and another 6,800 listed as properties of historic interest. Read a related article here.
