We’re about to show you the official downtown borders for Toronto. There are certainly many other unofficial thoughts on this.
Next week is the city’s Planning and Growth Management Committee meeting, and it seems that city officials have redrawn downtown Toronto’s borders.
Matt Elliott, a Toronto journalist, just revealed the new map on Twitter.
First, here’s a map of Toronto’s downtown and the neighbourhoods therein. So it’s definitive — there will be no further debates about what constitutes downtown. (Yes there will.) pic.twitter.com/fK3imlzn0g

Here. Look again. Bigger this time.
See? West of Bathurst is not officially downtown Toronto. For now. Until the lines are redrawn.
Or until someone asks you where you live, and you describe your Little Italy, Dundas West, Parkdale, or Christie Pits home as “downtown.”
