Our Development Approach

A Balanced Approach to Building

Building upon the strengths of our collective experiences, we look to create more opportunities for businesses, partners and communities through innovative solutions for using the City’s real estate portfolio. A new employment centre, greater access to transit, more parks and open spaces – our approach strikes a balance.

411 Victoria Park Avenue

A 1930’s Quarry

Since 2011, we have been working closely with government officials, the Concerned Citizens of Quarry Lands Development (CCQLD) and the local community to create a plan for this historical 19.7-acre parcel of land known as the Quarry Lands – dating back to the 1930s. The proposed plan for this area is a mixed-use development comprising of low-rise residential, a repurposed 4.5-acre city park, a new road network and a pedestrian-friendly public realm.

10 York Street

Parking Lot to Prime Living

10 York has long been an underutilized parcel of land, used as a pay-parking lot and Toronto Police Service impound lot. Located near the City’s waterfront, a prime location for a new residential development, 10 York offers an important opportunity to support future growth and improve pedestrian connections to the waterfront. The triangular shape of the land posed a challenge; we chose to partner with an experienced developer to help design an iconic 694-unit residential building with affordable housing.
