The Broadview Hotel today is a modern boutique hotel located in the heart of Toronto’s Riverside neighbourhood at Queen Street East and Broadview. The iconic heritage building has a long and colourful story dating back to the 1800s. Explore it as part of our ‘Riverside BIA 40 Years, 40 Stories’ series!
In 2019, the Riverside BIA proudly welcomed the ‘Alquimia’ mural as a vibrant addition to the neighbourhood’s public art pieces. Painted by Jacquie Comrie, the mural brings life to the walls of Riverside.
The Queen Street Viaduct, or ‘Riverside Bridge’ has become one of Toronto’s most iconic landmarks thanks to the public art project by the Riverside BIA in partnership with the City of Toronto, renowned Toronto artist Eldon Garnet and others.
Riverside is proud to have two independent breweries in the neighbourhood – Eastbound Brewing Co. and Saulter Street Brewery – and Toronto’s first cidery- Brickworks Ciderhouse. Each has a rich and locally-rooted story to tell and have cemented their place in Riverside as local favourites.
June marks National Indigenous History Month to honour the history, heritage and diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada. For the fifth feature in the Riverside BIA ‘40 years, 40 stories’ series, we are commemorating the ‘Tkaranto Past/ Tkaranto Future’ mural painted in 2017
