In the 1980s nightclubs began to move into these vacant spaces. A decade later, the Toronto Entertainment District was actually one of the biggest nightclub hotspots in North America, along with being home to many restaurants and bars.
In the 2000s, the area saw a rich condo constriction boom and many of the remaining historic warehouses and factories were also converted into lofts.
While not home to all of the theaters in Toronto like Ed Mirvish Theatre or Massey Hall, the Entertainment District includes hosts The Toronto International Film Festival and is home to many performing arts centres, family attractions, theatres like the Royal Alexandria and Princess Margaret along with the city’s biggest sports teams – The Toronto Argonauts, the Toronto Blue Jays, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Toronto Raptors.
Close to transit, immensely walkable and always bustling with fine dining, nightlife, festivals and entertainment, the aptly-named Entertainment District is a great place to live.
Whether you are planning on living in Toronto’s Entertainment District or want to invest in a condo, the Entertainment District offers everything from newer condos to loft conversions to combination “condotels” – condos with boutique hotel amenities and service.
