Welcome to Entertainment District
The area first came to prominence in the 19th century as a wealthy residential neighbourhood that also held Upper Canada’s Parliament Buildings. Completion of the railroad brought industrial activity to the area, and it was reputed as a hotspot for garment manufacturing well into the 20th century.
Since then, modern planning policies have turned the district into a mixed-use area and a true “live, work, play” neighbourhood complete with condo towers, commercial spaces, and of course, plenty of cultural spaces.
As interest has grown in downtown Toronto condos over the last decade or so, the Entertainment District has become a true hotspot for residential development, attracting showcase condo projects from some of the city’s biggest developers, including Menkes Developments, Pinnacle International and the Daniels Corporation.
The lively Entertainment District lives up to its name with everything from buzzy clubs to sports at Air Canada Centre and Rogers Centre. Families head to underwater tunnels at Ripley's Aquarium of Canada and the iconic CN Tower, with its citywide views at the top. The area also hosts musicals at Princess of Wales Theatre, concerts at Roy Thomson Hall and the Toronto International Film Festival at TIFF Bell Lightbox. When night falls the clubs in the district come alive with partiers from all over the Toronto area and beyond coming in to dance, see, be seen and just take in the scene. No matter what time of day or season, the Entertainment District is the home to something big.
