If you’re visiting Toronto and looking for something to do, you can’t go wrong with a trip to the Entertainment District. This downtown area south of Queen Street West between Spadina and University Avenue, is defined by its multitude of restaurants, theatres and nightclubs. Whether you’re up for a screening at TIFF Bell Lightbox, or want to take in a symphony show at Roy Thomson Hall, the Entertainment District offers plenty of options to keep you amused.

Like many pockets across the city, the Entertainment District has seen a flurry of development activity over the last few years, making way for many new condominium projects. If you are looking for an investment property, or a residence just steps from the excitement along King Street West, then a few of these currently selling condo projects may float your boat.
