Project Highlights

Housing Now

Creating Mixed-Income Communities on Public Land

Toronto City Council has approved 21 City-owned properties for inclusion in the Housing Now Initiative. These properties have the potential for mixed-use, mixed-income development. These properties will offer the opportunity to engage private, Indigenous, and non-profit housing partners to creatively deliver rental and affordable homes 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.


Derelict Wellington Destructor to Be Transformed into Community Hub

A vacant heritage building that once housed an incinerator for the city’s garbage will soon have a second chance at life. Known as the Wellington Destructor, the roughly 40,000 square foot brick building — located on the west side of downtown Toronto — was built in 1925 before it stopped operating in the mid-1970s.


2 California-based companies will develop new film, TV and digital media hub in Port Lands

Two California-based companies have been selected by the city to develop and operate a new $250 million film, television and digital media hub along Toronto’s waterfront.


The Destructor: inside Downtown Toronto’s new cultural hub

The door rolled up, and the grey light of day spilled across a floor of pockmarked wooden blocks. City Councillor Joe Cressy held up the door with his umbrella, and we took in the vast space in which we were standing: brick-walled, high-roofed, waiting for a new purpose.
