Excerpted from the "reasons for designation":

...(its) period design homes, wide tree lined avenue and centre landscaped boulevard reflect the influence of the "City Beautiful Movement" on early 20th century residential development...

So the boulevard is part of the reason, but not the only reason. BTW, a building or district doesn't have to be grand to be considered for designation. My house is a very plain, smallish house c.1890, but is of interest because it represents the lifestyle of the Irish railway workers who lived in Corktown.
