1250 Eglinton Avenue West

Project Introduction

The property is currently being used as a commuter parking lot. Because of its transit-oriented location, it offers great development potential. The site is immediately east of the Eglinton West subway station and is on the future Eglinton Crosstown LRT. As we start to create development concepts and plan for an integrated connection directly into the Eglinton Crosstown station, new residential opportunities and an improved streetscape, our development plans along Eglinton Avenue West will help to utilize the $5.3 billion transit infrastructure that is being invested to create a 19-km corridor to connect Mount Dennis (Weston Road) in the west to Kennedy Station in the east.

We are also working to incorporate an affordable housing component within this development.
