Our Leasing Approach

Creating Opportunity for Businesses

Through leasing, land and property management and brownfield reclamation, we seek to transform underutilized lands into thriving centres of employment where businesses large and small can flourish: from commercial and industrial to film and commodities. We work with a range of partners to accelerate economic growth and job creation in the Toronto Port Lands and beyond.

Featured Projects

Basin St Media Hub

Urban film and production studio

The Basin Media Hub, located on an 8.9-acre waterfront development parcel in Toronto’s Port Lands, is expected to provide up to 500,000 GFA of studio space and production offices. CreateTO is currently seeking proponents with the vision and ability to design, finance, develop, manage, and operate the facility, which will expand much needed capacity within the sector.  Toronto welcomes over 1,500 productions annually and is among the top five film and television production clusters in North America. 

Leslie Lookout Park

Revitalizing underutilized land to create a new destination in the Port Lands

The Leslie 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 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.
