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.

Toronto moves to a more holistic approach to land and housing development

When Toronto city council last month approved the final plan for a locally contentious mixed-income apartment development near Wilson subway station, the number of affordable rental units was actually 25 per cent higher than the initial proposal, which was made public only a year ago.


Toronto's ferry terminal to the islands could soon look completely different

A plan to revitalize the ferry terminal that serves as the gateway to the Toronto islands is one step closer to coming to fruition. The project proposes a beautiful redesign of the portion of the Toronto waterfront that more than a million tourists and locals travel through each year to get to one of the city's biggest attractions.


Condos and Affordable Housing Proposed at Victoria Park and Gerrard
