Project Highlights

505 Richmond Street West

More than a Condo

Over the last four years, our team has worked with a number of stakeholders to better understand the history of this site and the potential of this heritage-designated property. Following extensive consultations with a heritage consultant, City of Toronto stakeholders and community members, we announced the revitalization plans for this community-focused development. The 13-storey complex will include 299 residential units, a new YMCA, a public food hall and retail space. Eva’s Phoenix, a homeless youth initiative, has already opened in the east quarter of the complex. In 2016, we partnered with MOD Developments and Woodcliffe Landmark Properties to help deliver the program. The project is currently under construction. 

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.

Have you ever wondered what it looks like when construction crews build a bridge crossing train tracks overnight? I shot a little timelapse from my balcony.
