Past and present come together in this thriving, bustling area located between Church and Jarvis on Front Street. Here you'll find historic structures such as the St. Lawrence Market intermingling with modern high rise dwellings and offices like the nearby BCE Place and the Market Square apartment complex. A walkway connects the north side of Market Square to the Toronto Sculpture Garden and St James Cathedral. The area teems with second-hand and antique shops and it's a short walk down to the waterfront and the multi-event Harbourfront Centre.
