Going back to the 70s, many of the factories along Queens Quay were replaced with commercial and residential uses, mainly high-rise condominiums. The concrete towers of Bay Street, just south of Queens Quay which include the Harbour Square and Westin Harbour Castle are the oldest buildings in this neighbourhood. In the 90s Queens Quay saw more development and the 40-storey York Quay towers were built – to this day they remain the tallest Queens Quay condo buildings. Just at the turn of the century the City of Toronto announced new plans for Queens Quay giving rise to the Toronto Central Waterfront Public Realm International Design Competition which was completed in 2006 – much of the Queens Quay public space was reclaimed for pedestrians and cyclists marked by parks and cultural and recreational facilities. Queens Quay is also home to the Tip Top Lofts, the only loft conversion on the Harbourfront. Queens Quay is one of the hottest condo markets in the city - there’s not much room for further development but the demand for Queens Quay condos remains high. This neighbourhood is attracting both investors and end users. Queens Quay is a lively neighbourhood with many festivals all year round. The Harbourfront Centre offers a mix of performances from music and dance to theatre and literature. The Queens Quay West shopping district is geared towards locals and tourists and for those that love the outdoors there’s lots to explore; The Martin Goodman Trail (Toronto’s premiere bike trail) runs through the Harbourfront, and you can also find many parks such as the Ireland Park, the HTO Park, and Sugar Park (the new urban beach park). Sport fans are a few minutes’ walk away from the Air Canada Centre, home to the Maple Leafs and Raptors.
