We believe in working together to build a better Toronto.
30 Tippett Road
A commitment to affordable housing
Toronto’s housing agenda is delivered by a range of City divisions and agencies that work in partnership with other orders of government to deliver integrated solutions. Within this framework, CreateTO works closely with City stakeholders to contribute to affordable housing through a range of real estate activities. The property at 30 Tippett Road, a former commuter lot near the Wilson Subway Station, is one example. When the site was declared surplus and transferred to Build Toronto, now part of CreateTO, our team worked with the Affordable Housing Office and the development community to advance the City’s priority to build affordable housing. The property, currently under construction, is being transformed into a 900-unit transit-oriented development that includes 100 affordable rental and 100 affordable ownership homes – along with a daycare, a new park and a gathering piazza.

Etobicoke Civic Centre
A civic hub for the community
The vision for the Etobicoke Civic Centre (ECC) is to transform the area into a new civic hub centred around culture, transit and employment. This project began with a design competition in 2016: submissions were received from a handful of award-winning, internationally recognized architectural teams tasked to develop a mixed-use community delivering on office, residential and institutional uses. The wining design includes improved access to transit, a new workplace environment, a more sustainable community and integrated civic facilities.
Pinewood Toronto Studios
A cluster for creativity
Pinewood Toronto Studios is a modern complex situated on approximately 14 acres just minutes from downtown Toronto. It has 12 stages, including North America’s largest purpose-built soundstage, the Mega Stage, which can accommodate film and television productions of all sizes and budgets. This project reclaims underutilized brownfields to expand the studios and create usable employment space. As a result, more revenue will be created for the City, acting as a catalyst that will support the growth of our film and television sector and meet the increasing demands for sound stages and film studios.
