The neighbourhood is bounded by Front Street East, Parliament Street, the Gardiner Expressway, and Yonge Street.
The community is a giant hodge-podge that features condos and townhouses that are both publicly and privately owned.
No structure in the neighbourhood exceeds eight stories.
During the first half of the 20th century, this area was one of the city's major industrial areas.
Construction on the neighbourhood began in the late 1970s and was a significant attempt to retain economic diversity within the central city.
