Reenie Banks

This sprawling neighbourhood is larger than any other in Toronto. From the eastern Port Lands to Queen and Bathurst, what the city refers to as the "Waterfront Communities" ranges through the Distillery District, St. Lawrence, The Esplanade, Harbourfront, the King Street theatre district, the Draper Street heritage district, the Air Canada Centre, the Rogers Centre and CN Tower, Queen and John, the club district and the Toronto Islands.

Not unlike the Bay Street Corridor, the Waterfront Communities are predominantly made up of condos. What houses do exist are scattered and mostly remnants of all old developments, with condo developments like City Place is one of Toronto's largest. There have been some small-scale attempts to dress up bleaker parts with umbrella-dotted beaches in HTO Park and the Jarvis Slip. Most notably The Athlete's Village of the 2015 Pan American Games will be located in the West Don Lands along Front Street between Bayview Avenue and Cherry Street. It will have the capacity to hold 10,000 athletes and officials during the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games and after the games will be converted into housing. The development has been certified LEED Gold.

The Waterfront Communities encompass a disproportionate amoung of Toronto attractions and tourist activities.
