CityPlace

History

CityPlace is a contemporary neighbourhood located between Bathurst Street to the west, Front Street to the North, Lakeshore to the south and Blue Jays Way to the East. CityPlace is a very unique neighbourhood, having begun its creation in 1989 with the Skydome, it has been developed and brought to new heights on an abandoned Railway Land. Upon its completion, CityPlace will be the largest residential development ever produced in Toronto.

Neighbourhood Highlights

Current development and planning of the neighbourhood was headed by Concord Adex Developments. Concord developed with the ideas that the area would be designed as a multipurpose development of commercial, residential and retail area. Offering 10 blocks, each containing residential towers with their own sets of amenities. Local and corporate businesses are blended within the area, offering these amenities. Current condominium development offers a total of 5,000 possible residences, with another 1,500 soon to be completed.

Already famed as a community oriented neighbourhood in Toronto, CityPlace is built on 44 acres of land. Claimed as having ‘youthful confidence’, current residents have worked towards building this sense of community by organizing many community based events, including an annual block party and a weekly farmers market, offering local produce.

To continue with the drive to create community, the area has confirmed the development of a Toronto District School Board and a Toronto Catholic District School Board schools, both of which anticipated to be connected with a community centre. This is offer additional motivation to families to come to the neighbourhood, as this neighbourhood is highly populated with young professionals.

With its unique positioning to the Harbourfront of Toronto, CityPlace has the luxury of offering the accessibility to Port Airport, located on an island in Lake Ontario, through a ferry at the base of Bathurst. Also unique to the area, is the tourist attractions within the neighbourhood. Of these, the Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre, the CN Tower and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Recently added, The Ripley’s Aquarium, located at the base of the CN tower continue to support the pedestrian volume to support local businesses.

To support the blend of the community, over 20 acres of park is located within CityPlace. Of these parks, the famous Canoe Landing Park can be found, offering public works of art scattered throughout the park. Also within CityPlace is a pedestrian footbridge, created by famous sculpture Francisco Gazitua of Chile.
