Toronto CityPlace

Toronto CityPlace

Toronto CityPlace is a large residential area just west of Rogers Stadium. It was built on land previously owned by the railroads and the main tracks into Union Station border it still.The buildings shown here are Parade 1 and Parade 2. The sky bridge connecting them was added later.

These images were taken with a Canon 24mm Tilt/Shift, a special lens which can be used to get straight vertical lines for tall buildings, rather than the “tenting” usually seen with a normal wide lens.
