Site Introduction

This site is located in an area of the City that has not seen new commercial development in over 20 years, Build Toronto created a vision to maintain employment and sold the project to the Easton’s Group/The Gupta Group to develop a new commercial project, including a hotel component. The site is located adjacent to the York Mills subway station and is currently being used as a commuter parking lot. Given the site’s location, the vision is to densify a transit node and offer a new amenity in this area of the city, while creating new employment.

A development application has been approved by City Council.
