Residential

[SOLD] 30 Tippett Road

Project Introduction

One of three commuter lots at the Wilson Subway station that has been declared surplus for transfer to Build Toronto (now part of CreateTO), this site offers the opportunity to create a new pedestrian-focused community. The site has been used as a commuter lot for the past approximately 30 years and now, with a development partner, redevelopment is underway.

Over the course of two transactions, we sold the Tippett Road project to Shiplake Properties.

The site will be transformed into a four-building, 900-unit development which will also offer a new community use, a new 5,000 sq. ft. daycare, a new 0.38-acre parkland and a gathering piazza, all while connecting to the Wilson subway station through new and improved walkways. The transit-oriented development will include 100 affordable rental and 100 affordable ownership homes.
