Project Highlights

Housing Now

Creating Mixed-Income Communities on Public Land

CreateTO, working in partnership with City Planning and the Housing Secretariat, has identified 17 City-owned properties with high potential for mixed-use, mixed-income development. These properties will offer the opportunity to engage the private, non-profit and public sectors to creatively deliver significant rental and affordable units within transit accessible neighbourhoods throughout the City.

Parkdale Hub

Transformational and collaborative City building

The Parkdale Hub project, located at the intersection of Queen Street West and Cowan Avenue, is a unique city-building initiative that will deliver wide-ranging social, cultural and economic benefits to the Parkdale community. Reimagining the future of this area provides a unique opportunity for CreateTO to collaborate with City divisions, agencies, the non-profit sector and the broader community to create spaces that will more efficiently and effectively serve the Parkdale community into the future.

Leslie Slip Lookout Park

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

The Leslie Slip 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 Slip 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.


Huge development one step closer to replacing abandoned Toronto incinerator

The Wellington Destructor site at 677 Wellington St. W. is centred around its namesake 3,700 square metre vacant heritage building: a 1925-built garbage incinerator that has sat idle since solid waste burning was banned in the mid-1970s.


Streaming Wars Kick Off Studio Space Race in Ontario

Production was already increasing in the Canadian province prior to the pandemic, but unprecedented demand during the recovery from major streaming platforms has ignited a soundstage boom: "We’re busier than ever."


How Toronto found a pot of value buried in some poorly utilized downtown real estate

Let’s make a deal. The city of Toronto is doing that, in the best way, in the downtown King-Spadina neighbourhood.

#DYK We moved into a new office at @TorontoUnion? The move was part of the #ModernTO plan, a new approach designed to modernize the @cityoftoronto’s office space and make the best use of its real estate assets.

CreateTO’s Gabriella Sicheri, Vice President, Development, will be joining @yorkuniversity’s MYPAC Planning Case Competition evaluation panel today, where students will present their vision for an underdeveloped piece of land on campus. We wish all the teams the best of luck!

The Wellington Destructor is one of the most exciting city-building opportunities in downtown Toronto. A former garbage incinerator built in 1925 that’s been vacant since the 1980s, it’s a wonderful opportunity for revitalization and a new, vibrant community space.

We are pleased to share that @tasdesignbuild is being recommended as the long-term head lessee of the Wellington Destructor site, where a former garbage incinerator has been sitting vacant since the 1980s. #AdaptiveReuse https://bit.ly/3FJgs0D
