London's Dundas Street: Is There Hope?

Spanning from London to Toronto, Dundas Street has had its fair share of criticism.

However, it does have more character than any other street in London.

This street, from Richmond Street to Wellington Road, was at one point the hub of the city. Shopping, restaurants and entertainment provided Londoner's with a true downtown experience.

Over the years, Dundas Street has deteriorated leaving vacant buildings and a scuzy exterior. Dundas Street east of Adelaide Street is practically a ghost-town at night, bringing waves of prostitution and drug exchange in the recent years.

There is potential for the downtown area of Dundas Street to become one of the centre spots of London again, but is London willing to make an investment in it?

Will there ever be any hope for Dundas Street?
