We transformed a derelict collection of Victorian buildings into a walkable enclave of art, culture and community. Today, the Distillery District draws visitors from all over the world.
A new vision for the Downtown East
First to identify the unique potential of a former whisky distillery in Toronto’s East End, we invested strategically in the area to combine residential and office developments. With premium stores and restaurant offerings we’ve created both a vibrant livable neighbourhood and an iconic tourist destination.
A transformational partnership
We worked closely with leading developer Cityscape, to completely rejuvenate the 13-acre site, turning more than 40 heritage buildings and 10 cobblestone streets into a globally-recognized destination at the heart of a revitalized and thriving East End.
Building a dynamic community
From Canada’s leading artist-driven theatre company Soulpepper, to independent art galleries and the world-famous Toronto Christmas Market, we redeveloped the Distillery District not just as a real estate project, but as a thriving city landmark.
The Ribbon Building
Our latest Distillery District development includes a 49-storey, 554 residential rental units and a 5-storey office and retail building we call the Ribbon. The Ribbon will almost double the amount of commercial area in the Distillery, bringing more retailers and employment to the area.
