When you hear about downtown Saskatoon, that area is officially known as the Central Business District. This is a neighbourhood that was built around the railroad pumping stations in the late 1800s. What started as a village in 1901, called Saskatoon, grew into a town by 1903 and the rest is history. This neighbourhood is full of historical landmarks and buildings; the Canada Building, Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, T. Eaton Store, Fairbanks-Morse Warehouse, Delta Bessborough Hotel, Hotel Senator, Hutchinson Building, Knox Presbyterian Church, Land Titles Building, Odd Fellows Temple, Royal Bank, Rumley Building, Schroeder House, Saskatoon Club, C.P.R. Station, St. Mark's Anglican Church, Third Avenue Methodist Church and Thompson Chambers.


The housing available in the Central Business District is primarily apartment-style condominiums, a few loft-style condominiums and very few single-family homes. You will find this neighbourhood is popular with seniors, university students and working professionals.


Not only does the Central Business District function as a neighbourhood but it also offers a lifestyle; entertainment venues such as restaurants, bars and lounges; boutique shopping, festivals and so much more.
