The Financial District is the main financial district in Toronto, and the financial heart of Canada. Those who live in the financial district generally work here too. Here, living is all about convenience.
The Financial District is bounded by Queen Street West to the north, Yonge Street to the east, Front Street to the south and University Avenue West. It is the densest area of Toronto, filled with office towers owned by banks and occupied by corporate headquarters, legal and accounting firms, insurance companies and stockbrokers. It was the ‘Five Big Banks’ that took over the area to create The Financial District: CIBC, RBC, BMO, TD, and Scotiabank.
When it comes to living in The Financial District, it’s mainly private residences in famous hotels, and luxury condo towers. For the most part, The Financial District is populated by business professionals and eager up-and-comers. There are no detached, single-family homes in the area. Many of the residential towers offer convenient services and amenities. The underground PATH retail concourse provides a year-round, indoor walkway lined with cafes, shops and restaurants.
