The Harbourfront area in Toronto was built-up in the early 1800s using landfill, and was home to many different industrial buildings like factories, warehouses and shipping areas that isolated the Harbourfront from the rest of the city.
But in the early 1970s, the area underwent a citizen-led transformation and the result is a lakeside playground that’s a beautiful place to live.
Bordered by the Gardiner Expressway to the north, Bathurst to the west and Yonge Street or York Street (depending on who you ask) to the east (see map below), the neighbourhood is a successful mix of different types of land and includes low-rise condo buildings, high-rise condo towers, commercial areas and well-balanced industrial areas that either remain as a part of the community or have been converted to other uses.

The Harbourfront area is also home to Harbourfront Centre, which works with over 400 different community organizations to host thousands of art events each year.
Steps away, Queen’s Quay terminal offers high-end shopping and restaurants, while few neighbourhoods in the entire world can boast being a short, waterfront walk from an actual airport – the island Billy Bishop Airport is conveniently located right next door.
Trails, paths and waterfront parks make the Harbourfront neighbourhood easily navigable on foot, with plenty to see and do including the Redpath Sugar Museum, art galleries, the Spadina Quay wetlands, the Fort York National Historic Site and Exhibition Place. The St Lawrence market, bars and restaurant with patios, grocery stores and other shopping destinations round off the Harbourfront as one of Toronto’s most sought-after neighbourhoods to live and play in.
