Casa Loma is a neighbourhood in the city of Toronto and is named after the famous castle. It is bounded on the north by Spadina Road and Lonsdale Road, on the east by Avenue Road, on the south by the CP railway tracks, and on the west by Bathurst Street. St. Clair Avenue runs through the northern third of the neighbourhood, and transit access is provided by the TTC's St. Clair West station and 512 St. Clair streetcar route. The image of a castle atop the Avenue Hill road, surrounded by ravines, large old trees, joggers and BMW's is an eclectic mix, considering the neighbourhood is located close to downtown Toronto. Casa Loma was constructed in the early 1900s for over three million dollars and was given to the city by its heavily debt-laden owner only a decade after it was put up. The prominence of the castle led to a huge boom in the area, with many wealthy residents setting up shop and defining the present neighbourhood.
