CityPlace is the name given to a large section of former railway land in Downtown Toronto, Canada. The term is more recently being used for a large multi-tower condo development near the Toronto harbourfront(pics) and central business district(pics). The development has many more towers to go, including the tallest, Signature tower. It is the largest residential development ever attempted in Toronto. CityPlace was created by an arm of Canadian National Railway real estate with the purpose of redeveloping surplus railway yards. The CN Tower was the first structure to be built as part of the master plan to see the area be converted into non-industrial uses. Several master plans over the past few decades had been created.
