Cranes fill the skies over Toronto's Entertainment District as new high-rises continue to transform the neighbourhood into a high-density vertical neighbourhood. While we typically find ourselves admiring the area's growing density from street level, this video captured by new UrbanToronto contributor and architectural photographer Michael Muraz, takes us high above the Entertainment District for a jaw-dropping aerial tour of the growing area of the city.

The video starts off with a panning shot of the Toronto skyline, with Studio and Studio2 on Richmond taking centre stage and the nearly-complete Theatre Park visible to the south. At around the 0:15 second mark, a long tracking shot begins at Picasso Condos, moving westbound above Queen Street and facing to the south. At the 0:20 second mark, Tableau Condominiums comes in to frame, followed closely by the Queen Richmond Centre West office development at 0:30 seconds. The video transitions back to another panning shot of the skyline, this time captured from further west. In the final shot, we can see how these new projects fit into the Entertainment District's expanding skyline.
