These skyscraper buildings are just a few of the hundreds that dominate the skyline of the Financial District and downtown in the city of Toronto, in the heart of the main Financial Centre of Canada. While most of the high rise buildings used to be contained within a area bound by Queen Street West, Yonge Street, Front Street and University Avenue, some office towers are now having to be built outside of these boundaries as there is no more room for them to expand otherwise.
Like most financial districts across the world, this area is the most densely populated in the whole of Toronto; mostly with offices and companies, but also with smaller businesses and some residences, although these are very expensive to live in.
The main banking towers in this area are connected by a series of underground walkways that are also lined with shops, making this area the most important shopping district in Toronto as well. About 100,000 people commute in and out of this financial district every day and it is serviced by many forms of transit making it easier for people to work in this expensive financial district, and then commute to their homes in a less expensive part of Toronto's city.
