277 Victoria Street

Repurposing the site at 277 Victoria Street presents an opportunity to create a mixed-use institutional development including retail or community space, public realm improvements and the adaptive reuse of heritage assets.

Located just steps from Yonge-Dundas Square, 277 Victoria Street currently houses the head office for Toronto Public Health and is home to The Works. Selling this City-owned property and accelerating the relocation of the existing occupants, while ensuring minimal disruption to Toronto Public Health service delivery, will serve as a catalyst to revitalize the area surrounding Yonge-Dundas Square, including improvements to the public realm, traffic flow, and pedestrian and cycling mobility in line with the yongeTOmorrow plan.
