WE'RE NOT TYPICAL DEVELOPERS

We're a collaboration of two Crown corporations, in it for the long haul and committed to public benefit.

We're creating a framework plan inspired by your ideas and feedback and informed by the public policy priorities of the city and province and our priorities as landowners.

The process is just beginning and the site will take decades to evolve. We’re currently focusing on land use and improving connections. Details will come later.

Three phases of consultation will lead to a Framework Plan

BUILDING ON WHAT’S ALREADY HERE.

The departure of Bombardier is an amazing opportunity, but the area is not a blank slate. We’re working with locals on the ground to understand the place, the surrounding neighbourhoods, and how changes can contribute positively to what’s already working here.

We’re seeking to amplify and build on the distinctive, resilient, and resourceful spirit of Downsview. 

To know where we’re going, we need to know where we’ve been.

The local community has also been helping us explore the rich history of this place—identifying stories that are integral to its identity and future.
