Project Highlights

Housing Now

Creating Mixed-Income Communities on Public Land

CreateTO, working in partnership with City Planning and the Housing Secretariat, has identified 11 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.

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.

Here comes the bridge: A sneak peek at Toronto's new Cherry St. bridge - set to make the trip from Nova Scotia

Right now, it’s sitting, sleek and streamlined, brilliant white and red against a clear blue sky in the backyard of the manufacturing facility of Cherubini Bridges and Structures in Dartmouth, across the harbour from Halifax.


Could Etobicoke Centre soon become Toronto’s ‘Downtown West’?

Etobicoke Centre runs along Dundas Street West from Shorncliffe Road to Kipling Avenue, and between Dundas Street West and Bloor Street West from Kipling Avenue to Montgomery Road. It is one of four centres identified in the City’s Official Plan to be redeveloped to encourage a high concentration of residents, employment, and economic activity.
