2444 Eglinton Avenue East, situated just steps away from Kennedy TTC Station and Go Station, is a housing project that will deliver approximately 919 homes including 612 rent-geared-to-income (RGI), affordable and market rent-controlled co-operative homes, making it one of the largest affordable housing projects in Ontario in the past 25 years and the province’s largest co-operative development.

In January 2024, the City of Toronto and CreateTO announced Civic Developments, Windmill Developments and Co-operative Housing Federation of Toronto as the development partners for this project. This housing project will consist of two co-op buildings and a market ownership building. The homes will consist of a mix of studios, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments. The site will also offer 3,580 square feet of community space as well as 12,770 square feet of retail space.

CreateTO is continuing to push boundaries with this project as it is also a part of a pilot project wherein the proponents advance the zoning by-law amendment application themselves. 

The current use for this site at 2444 Eglinton Avenue East is a parking lot and autobody shop that is vacant and not in use, so by unlocking this space and maximizing its potential, the Scarborough Centre community will see major benefits socially and economically.

2444 Eglinton Avenue East is a project part of the Housing Now Initiative to invest in City-owned lands across Toronto for the development of affordable housing within mixed-income, mixed-use, transit-oriented communities.
