entertainment-district-condominiumsThe Entertainment District is diverse area in Downtown Toronto, known initially for theatre arts and live entertainment the district is now open to many nightclubs, lounges, bars and restaurants. The Entertainment District is bound from Front street to the south, Bathurst to the east, Yonge Street to the west and Queen Street as it's the northern boundary, Although the area is not all entertainment, many commercial-retail and office properties currently reside in the area. The past 5 years saw an influx of high-rise condominums spring up and as a consequence, many entertainment venues were shut down completely or temporarily to allow for construction. Almost all buildings will re purpose the street-level retail and entertainment sector which will revitalize the area once again with the same public energy it once had.

 

 

 


A Brief Guide To Toronto’s Entertainment District

 

Toronto’s Entertainment District is North America’s most diverse and hottest entertainment, culture and sports destination compartmentalized into 5 areas: the Warehouse Area, the Commerce Area, the Union Station Area, the Theatre Area and the Events Area. The dynamic and vibrant neighborhood is located between University Avenue and Spadina Avenue, around King Street West. In the first half of the 20th century, the Entertainment District was known as the Garment District because the area was almost entirely industrial. Deindustrialization in the 1970s paved the path for the arrival of nightclubs and later the CN Tower, Roy Thomson Hall, SkyDome and the 2000 seat Princess of Wales Theatre among other things in 1976, 1982, 1989 and 1993 correspondingly.
