bloor street

Toronto street just ranked most expensive in Canada

So, what's the most expensive street in Canada? Well, it runs through Yorkville, features Holt Renfrew, Chanel and Louis Vuitton along with other luxury retailers and is quite beautiful during the holiday season. The answer, of course, is Bloor Street, or Mink Mile.

According to Cushman & Wakefield's Main Streets Across the World report, Bloor Street is the sixth most expensive street in the Americas - rent here averages at $250 (USD) per square foot.

The most expensive street in the Americas - and in the world - is Upper Fifth Avenue (between 49th and 60th) in Manhattan where rent soars to $3,000 (USD) per square foot.

Not only is Bloor Street the most expensive street in Canada, but it's also the 21st most expensive street in the world. It comes right behind Copenhagen's gorgeous pedestrian-only thoroughfare Stroget and in front of Na Příkopě street in Prague.
