[SOLD] 1978-2002 Lake Shore Boulevard West

Project History

This site was sold and this project page is no longer being updated.

This property is one of the last undeveloped sites along Lake Shore Boulevard West with unobstructed lake views. The City of Toronto received title to this land in 1995 as part of a transfer of lands from the Toronto Harbour Commissioners. Historically, it housed an oil and gas station that was relocated in 2007. As a vacant parcel of land, it was declared underutilized for transfer to Build Toronto (now part of CreateTO). We are currently preparing the site for development so that a new gateway to the waterfront can be established. The site offers a maximum permissible height of 65 metres.
