To the east of Exhibition Place begins a long stretch of former commercial and industrial areas that are rapidly being converted into some of Toronto's most expensive residences and condominiums.
Queen's Quay has become home to a number of high end shops and restaurants. This area is also home to the Harbourfront Centre.
Just to the north of the Gardiner is the former railway lands that have also seen rapid development. This area is home to the Rogers Centre (SkyDome) and CN Tower, both of which are prominently visible from the waterfront.
East of Yonge Street running to Cherry Street is a stretch of area known as the East Bayfront, centred on the Parliament Street. Thousands of new residences and millions of feet of commercial space are being built.
