Harbourfront East, Toronto
The southern part of the Harbourfront neighbourhood in Toronto was built-up in the early 1800s using landfill… it used to be that Front Street was along the edge of the shoreline. It became home to many different industrial buildings like factories, warehouses and shipping areas that were isolated from the rest of the city by the railway tracks cutting across below Front.
Beginning in the early 1970s and continuing to today, the area underwent and is undergoing a citizen-led transformation the result of which is a lakeside playground that’s becoming an even more beautiful place to live. Harbourfront East includes all the new condo and commercial buildings being constructed along Queen’s Quay east of Yonge, the St Lawrence Market area, which is very popular, as well as newer buildings north up to Queen Street.
Bordered by the Queen Street to the north, Yonge Street to the west and Parliament Street 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.
