Project Highlights

Housing Now

Creating Mixed-Income Communities on Public Land

Toronto City Council has approved 21 City-owned properties for inclusion in the Housing Now Initiative. These properties have the potential for mixed-use, mixed-income development. These properties will offer the opportunity to engage private, Indigenous, and non-profit housing partners to creatively deliver rental and affordable homes within transit accessible neighbourhoods throughout the City.


Unlocking value to invest in city building

Through ModernTO, the City plans to reduce its portfolio to 15 locations – primarily by ending leases and creating office hubs within key civic buildings including City Hall, Metro Hall and the Civic Centres in Scarborough, North York, and Etobicoke. This will also unlock eight City-owned properties for city-building purposes, including affordable housing, City services, and other City priorities.

Leslie Lookout Park

Revitalizing underutilized land to create a new destination in the Port Lands

The Leslie Lookout Park will be a new destination in Toronto’s Port Lands located on the Martin Goodman Trail at the entrance to Tommy Thompson Park. The park will include a public beach, distinguished by forested dunes that will create a new multi-use community destination in Toronto’s east end. The centrepiece of Leslie Lookout Park will be a 1.9 acre open space at 12 Leslie Street that will connect the public to the water’s edge with views of the entire length of the Ship Channel. The open space will include a viewing platform that will provide the public with dramatic views of the Toronto skyline.

From streetcar garage to cultural hub

Scale is a curious thing. When I lived in Scarborough’s Midland Park neighbourhood, a walk to Scarborough Town Centre – I think I did it twice in five years – felt fantastically far.

Toronto Mayor John Tory and Chief Jason Gauthier from the Missanabie Cree First Nation have announced the Missanabie Cree First Nation as the development partner for new housing at 140 Merton Street, by the Davisville subway station.
