Inventory of City's heritage properties now online
  
Searching for Toronto heritage properties is now easier with the new online
inventory of heritage properties on the City of Toronto's Web site. The address
is www.toron to.ca/culture/heritage_properties_inventory.htm.

The Inventory of Heritage Properties identifies Toronto's built cultural
heritage. It was started in 1973 and lists more than 7,000 properties ranging
from well-known landmark buildings and structures to private homes and heritage
districts. The online inventory will be useful to property owners, lawyers,
architects, developers, students, heritage and neighbourhood groups, and real
estate organizations-groups that need access to a wide variety of detailed
information on a daily basis.

"The online Inventory of Heritage Properties shows the extent of Toronto's
treasure of historic properties and districts and is an exciting step for the
City and its e-City strategy," said Patrick Gossage, chair of the Toronto
Preservation Board. "It makes vital data on our built heritage of
architectural, historic and cultural merit accessible to everyone."

The online inventory contains about 7,000 buildings and structures that can be
searched by using a street name, ward, heritage conservation district,
architect, year of construction, and building type. Bylaw numbers for
properties designated under the Ontario Heritage Act and Heritage Easement
Agreement information are also included in the inventory.
