Toronto Residential Housing Size

The visualization below shows all single residential households, which are comprised of semi-detached and detached homes. Darker areas represent the houses with the largest building footprint. Most neighbourhoods have a combination of large and small building footprints, but as you look at the data city-wide, patterns can be seen. Old downtown and wealthy neighbourhoods of The Annex, Trinity Bellwoods, and Rosedale show consistently large households and contain the largest residential building footprints in the city. East York, The Junction, and Mimico have consistently smaller houses and create a ring around the expensive downtown core. An outer ring of the city, created by Scarborough, North York, and Etobicoke, show that most of the larger households are located in the suburbs. Other areas of interest include the cluster of mansions in the Beaches neighbourhood and the large residential properties scattered throughout Rouge Valley Park.
