We are delighted to be part of the Dream Unlimited + Great Gulf team selected by Waterfront Toronto to redevelop Quayside. From the official press release:
“Today’s announcement comes after a competitive process, with four teams vying for the opportunity to transform the 12-acre (4.9 hectare) site into a community for residents and visitors to live, work and play.
Among the highlights of the winning submission from Dream and Great Gulf were proposals to create:
800+ affordable housing units, more than doubling the affordable housing Waterfront Toronto has brought to the waterfront, with many delivered in earliest stages to address an urgent need.
- New public spaces, including a two-acre forested green space, plus a significant urban farm atop one of Canada’s largest residential mass timber buildings.
- A landmark cultural destination and multi-use arts venue that brings together space for the performing arts, Indigenous-centered cultural celebrations and flexible education spaces.
- Exemplary low-carbon development and innovations, making Quayside the first all-electric, zero-carbon community at this scale;
- Visionary world-class architecture that will raise the bar on design across the entire neighbourhood and create a visually striking focal point on Toronto’s waterfront.
