With those beautiful waters, the Toronto Islands just a ferry ride away, and numerous public spaces along it, there are so many things to snap a great photo of. And then there’s us, also located right along the waterfront. With our unique architecture and angles, we’ve seen some great photos popping up of us and our area on Instagram.

We’ve gathered up some of our favourites of those photos to show them off. Scroll down to see some of the best shots of the Pier 27 area!

How Sweet It Is: Our Recap of Sugar Shack TO


We were so happy to attend and have our developer, Cityzen, be a sponsor of the first annual Sugar Shack Toronto event!

The cabane à sucre was hosted by Waterfront Toronto and took place all weekend long at Sugar Beach. Close to 8,000 visitors came out to get a dose of traditional Québécois food, music, and fun activities like ice sculpting. There’s no question that the hit of the event was the maple taffy stand – people were lined up on both Saturday and Sunday to get a taste of the sweet treat! It was the perfect way to take in the beautiful spring weather we had this past weekend and spend some time on the waterfront.

If you didn’t get a chance to pop by Sugar Shack Toronto this year, here’s a sneak peek at what you missed:






Thank you to Waterfront Toronto for hosting this awesome event! See you all next year.

The revitalized area officially opened in June and has been met with outstanding positivity ever since. Our waterfront really needed something like this, and it’s now a world-class street.
