“The financial captial”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

It's where I am daily. Tall buildings. Access to banks and retail centres. Lots of diners and stores. On the subway line. Union Station is the hub. It's Toronto's Financial Capital.

“Big guns all around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

CIBC Bank, Bank of Montreal, ScotiaBank, Toronto-Dominion Bank, KPMG, Deloitte, Toronto Stock Exchange, you name it, they're all there.

The best way to drown in a sea of money is to get out of King Subway Station at Commerce Court, smack in the middle of it. On ground level, it's the junction of King and Bay.

You're allowed to take pictures of the elephants, the fountain, and the tops of the skyscrapers at Commerce Court. No pictures of building entrances, a polite security officer whispers. Oh.

If it rains, and even if it doesn't, duck underground into Toronto's PATH network, and enjoy an inside view of those financial institutions and food courts and all.

“Offices that's all”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

It's a wind tunnel at best, nothing here but the legal offices, no stores or restaurants at all.

“Shop until you drop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

A mix of low-end casual stores like H&M, middle class boutiques like Zara and high-end fashion (and prices) at Holt Renfrew, Chanel and accessories' stores like Aldo are just a few of the things awaiting shoppers on Bay St. Go (window) shop or just admire the beautiful scenery and people.
