Everything you see here is all located indoors. Home to some of Toronto’s most prestigious financial and legal firms, the complex fosters business and commerce of global significance.

This escalator leads up from a underground complex simple known as "PATH". It is a large underground shopping complex with 30 km (19 miles) of shopping arcades. There are approximate 1,200 shops and services found in PATH. More than 50 office towers are connected through PATH. Also connecting with twenty parking garages, six subway stations, two major department stores, eight major hotels, and a railway terminal.

  1. Looks a bit like a Calatrava construction but just not really smooth enough. But that it has cost a lot of money is very clear to me. Nice reportage Andy.

  2. That is a very ambitious building complex! So many shops, hope they can survive. Funny that people always have a nickname for something new. The same happens here too.

  3. Now I see by google that it is designed by Calatrava. Normally he does this kind of constructions with concrete so the steel profiles put me on the wrong thought.

  7. That is quite an amazing building. That second photo looks very familiar to me. I think I might have been in there many years ago.

  8. Impressive for sure and quite beautiful. But I cannot help but wonder about all the illegal, crooked dealing that goes on here. If there's anything we've learned over the past century it is that the rich and those who run huge corporations cannot be trusted to care about the commonwealth.

  9. Dazzling interior. I've never been inside that building. I should do so the next time I'm down there.

  15. This sounds really humongous! I like your shots. But all that underground life would be a little overwhelming to me. I'm not stuck with as much snow as you are so I have the luxury of preferring to stay above ground.
