City Council has approved TAS, a Toronto-based real estate development company, as the long-term head lessee of the Wellington Destructor site, a 0.85 hector City-owned heritage landmark at 677 Wellington Street West.
The Wellington Destructor site is home to a former garbage incinerator that has been sitting vacant since the 1980s. TAS’ proposal evolves the historic Wellington Destructor into an active community catalyst and delivers an iconic landmark that attracts and inspires visitors from across Toronto and beyond.
The restoration of this heritage landmark and the retrofit of the building will include a dynamic mix of innovative commercial tenancies, such as production facilities, learning, programming and administrative spaces, alongside community-based organizations. TAS will work with a diverse range of partners to ensure ongoing community engagement.
