Site Introduction

Keeping true to its historically industrial character, the 24-acre site in Etobicoke South is one of the only large industrial sites left in the City of Toronto. Originally part of a larger 40-acre property, the site was used for metal manufacturing for over 80 years, ending operations in 1991 when the buildings were demolished. A historically designated Toronto Hydro building remains on the lands. Located in close proximity to the Gardiner Expressway, the site has the opportunity for a design build of up to 600,000 square feet.

For Sale Opportunity: Currently, 20.6 acres, of the total 24.1 acres of development land zoned for employment uses, is available for sale.
