The royal bank is impressive, not for the architecture, but for the glamour of its gold windows. It is quite nice to observe the reflex on the windows, and since it is in the city center is totally worth for a quick stop.

Located in the financial district, this skyscraper glass buildings stand tall and sophisticated as the head office for Royal Bank of Canada. Very busy intersection, there are other bank head offices fairly close to RB plaza.

Chain stores - that's all. Nothing exciting about it - same stores you would find all the malls in Toronto and suburbs - no special restaurants or bars. If it is cold outside then walk from Union Station north to The Bay or visa versa

The whole underground of downtown Toronto is a huge group of malls. You don't need to go anywhere else if you want to shop, rain/snow or shine, cold or hot, it's weather-proof:)
