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.

Toronto’s Hollywood North expanding in all directions

It’s lights, cameras and action – everywhere. While just a few months ago, it appeared COVID-19 was forcing a wrap for the film industry, there’s now so much demand for production space that studios are expanding, and new ones are being built in all corners of the Greater Toronto Area.
