Downtown Toronto Neighbourhood Info


<Back


View Larger Map

The City of Toronto’s Downtown Core has seen an explosion of large high-rise condominiums that houses the growing residential population and is the headquarters for many of Canada’s major companies; all reasons why the downtown Toronto real estate values have skyrocketed. The Downtown Core is bordered by beautiful Lake Ontario on the south, Bathurst Street on the west, the Don River on the east, and by Bloor Street and some of the Yonge Street area in the north. This busy neighborhood appeals to those who enjoy the downtown lifestyle.

The Bloor Yorkville region offers prime shopping with over 700 restaurants, hotels, spas, designer boutiques and shops, and renowned galleries. It has continued to blossom with the new retail, newly created Dundas Square, and the improved cleanliness brought about by the BIA; the Business Improvement Area.

If downtown Yonge is more your style, quick accessibility is easily achieved using regional and public transit systems, and has six streetcar lines and six subway stops. If you prefer, driving is certainly an option. Yonge is made up of an enormous retail concentration with an amazing shopping experience available throughout the district, including Eaton Centre on Yonge Street. Or visit any of the 600 retail shops, 150 restaurants and bars, or seven hotels, all at your fingertips.

However, the advantages don’t stop there. You’ll find the Atrium on Bay, College Park, and the underground PATH which connects the towers with a network of retail buildings for a convenient alternative to shopping on snow-covered streets. The diversity of interests in this area is amazing and includes four theatres and four indoor venues for entertainment, along with a host of historical landmarks and sites including the Church of the Holy Trinity, Maple Leaf Gardens, Mackenzie House, the Toronto Police Museum and Discovery Centre, Old City Hall, and the Arts and Letter Club.

Historically speaking, the Old Town Toronto was the beginning and features dining, music, many pubs, theatres, and heritage buildings while the city’s very first neighbourhood, established in 1793, is still remembered at the original Town of York site. This same area also has the greatest number of 19th Century buildings in all of Ontario. The prestigious list includes St. Paul’s Basilica, St. James’ Cathedral, St. Lawrence Hall, St. Michael’s Cathedral, the Gooderham Building, the Bank of Upper Canada, the Enoch Turner School House, and Le Royal Meridien King Edward Hotel, to name just a few.

On the east, Old Town is bordered by Corktown and the Distillery District, and on the west by the St. Lawrence Market; rated one of the world’s 25 best by Food & Wine Magazine.

This region also encompasses the Entertainment District which is made up of eight square blocks with hundreds of nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, boutiques, attractions, sporting facilities, and live theatre. A major centre for entertainment, the area was revived in the 1980s with the Mirvish family’s help, including the Royal Alexandra Theatre which was completely refurbished. In addition, the city’s four major league sports teams, including the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Toronto Blue Jays, are also hosted within only three blocks of each other in their two enormous stadiums, and each is connected to the PATH.
