Masterful planning and collaboration

We developed our creative vision for the Canary District in close collaboration with the City of Toronto, Province of Ontario and Waterfront Toronto. With a focus on innovative design and sustainability, we created an affordable, pedestrian-focused community built around parks and active living.

Unprecedented scale and success

We drew from our wide range of expertise in transformational community projects to completely redevelop Toronto’s Downtown East, working within tight government deadlines to successfully deliver the revolutionary 35-acre site on time, and on budget.

A community for everyone

During every step of the process, we sought to build an inclusive community that was accessible to residents of all ages and incomes, combining a unique blend of market, affordable and student housing with world-class street level retailers and unparalleled entertainment offerings.

Canary House

Canary House is the next phase of the Canary District at Front and Cherry Street. Canary House artfully blends inspiration from its surroundings. Blurring the boundaries between the outdoors and your home, Canary House complements natural elements like hand-scraped wood with contemporary design featuring subtle, neutral colour palettes. It all comes together to create a sanctuary of calm in the bustling Downtown East.
