NEIGHBOURHOOD GUIDE
HARBOURFRONT, TORONTO

The Harbourfront neighbourhood in Toronto takes full advantage Lake Ontario, which is certainly one of the city’s most impressive features. The neighbourhood was once an industrial wasteland, although very few reminders of its history remain. Instead, it has been developed into an urban hub for modern condo dwellers.

The Harbourfront neighbourhood is rich in arts and culture, has access to the water, is near to the downtown core, and provides residents with south-facing views with some of the most spectacular vistas available in the GTA. Technically speaking, the Harbourfront neighbourhood begins at Bathurst Street in the West. Yonge Street is often considered the Eastern boundary, although some dispute this. The North and South boundaries are very clearly marked, with everything between the Gardiner Expressway and the lake being part of the neighbourhood.

Whereas the rest of Toronto, Ontario is full of locales rich with the history of a city that has been here for well over a century, Harbourfront is a new development. With only a few old silos standing as testament to the industrial facilities that once filled the site, everything here is glass and metal, and very reflective of ‘new’ Toronto. The dominant feature in the neighbourhood besides the lake to the South is the massive condo development to the North. Most of the commercial businesses in Harbourfront are located on the shopping levels of these apartment buildings. Every aspect of the community feels geared towards the condominium dweller’s convenience.

There is also a tourist-centric region along the water itself. This area is dominated by spaces dedicated to public art and culture, and to life on the water. Boats of all sizes are moored along the shores of Lake Ontario in the Harbourfront neighbourhood. There is a mixture of private yachts, commercial vessels, and watercraft available for rent by tourists or local watersports enthusiasts.

In addition, Harbourfront Centre is one of the central art hubs of the city.

The Harbourfront Canoe & Kayak Centre, for example, offers canoe, kayak and paddleboard rentals, lessons and tours. The Amsterdam Brewhouse is located right on the shores of Lake Ontario. Amsterdam is one of the most well known local Toronto breweries, and the waterfront location features a restaurant and a beer store that carries all of their new brews.

Family Life

Harbourfront is a family friendly area. The school and the community centre both make it a neighbourhood with good resources for those raising children. However, there is a relatively small number of families here compared to the rest of Toronto. The families without children more than double those with children in Harbourfront. The average small size of condos in the area tends families in some ways. Of those who have children in Harbourfront, the vast majority have children under the age of 6. This is likely due to the need for more space as children get older, or as more additions to the family come along.
