880 Eastern Avenue

Helping make the industrial edges of Leslieville greener and more livable.

Back to Portfolio Community Consultation

This project is located along a stretch of Eastern Avenue that dramatically divides residential Leslieville to the north and grittier industrial uses to the south. Its redevelopment presents an exciting opportunity to introduce a vibrant new point of transition between these two contrasting areas – and to help make them greener and more livable.

In 2020 we connected with over 40 people who live and/or work nearby and learned that they most cherish the diversity and inclusiveness of their neighbourhood. Our project enthusiastically seeks to enhance these local strengths by:

1) Seamlessly mixing a range of housing types
2) Integrating community-oriented commercial spaces
3) Providing ample opportunities for social connection

Our design was further guided by commitments to sustainable building practices, the health and quality of life of our future residents.
