quayside

Opportunity to create a globally significant community, showcasing advanced technologies, new building materials and innovative funding strategies that demonstrate pragmatic solutions toward climate-positive urban development.

Toronto is consistently a top-ranking city in terms of global competitiveness, innovation and quality of life. It is the fourth largest city in North America and continues to attract more than 100,000 new residents annually. It has a robust economy, with financial services, media production, information and communications technology and life sciences sectors fueling continued growth.
 

As the downtown experiences sustained population and job growth, demand for space continues to outpace supply. Supporting Toronto’s diversified economy and meeting the need for more space, the city’s post-industrial waterfront is transforming into a compelling destination with a number of high-quality residential and commercial developments, best-in-class technology infrastructure, and vibrant public and cultural spaces.
 

 

quayside development opportunity
 

Quayside is an approximate 4.9 hectare (12 acre) development site situated along Toronto’s eastern waterfront, within walking distance of the vibrant central business district. Waterfront Toronto is looking for an Innovation and Funding Partner to help create and realize an unparalleled vision for Quayside, and to materially contribute to project funding. When complete, Quayside is envisioned as an exemplary waterfront community that achieves precedent-setting standards of sustainability, resiliency, innovation, inclusivity and design excellence.

 

 

partnering opportunities
 

Waterfront Toronto has a 15-year track record delivering precedent-setting, dynamic, mixed-use neighbourhoods that have raised the bar on sustainability, inclusivity, urban design and innovation. However, we are compelled to push further – to advance new models for addressing common urban challenges, such as the increasing disparity in housing affordability and the imperative to address climate change.
 

Currently, we are seeking an Innovation and Funding Partner to help create and realize an unparalleled vision for Quayside, and to materially contribute to project funding. Together, we will conceptualize and plan the development of Quayside, identifying and defining the necessary partnership model, strategies, infrastructure, measurable outcomes and downstream partners that will ensure it is a globally-significant demonstration project that addresses key challenges:
 

  • Sustainability, Resiliency and Urban Innovation: employ solutions, technologies and strategies to create a sustainable – striving for climate-positive – resilient community.
  • Complete Communities: enhance quality of life through creating a mixed-use, mixed-income neighbourhood – providing a range of housing types and amenities – and addressing the need for mobility, accessibility and connectivity.
  • Economic Development and Prosperity: serve as a testbed for Canada’s cleantech, building materials and broader innovation-driven sectors, generate prosperity by growing the emerging industry hubs on the waterfront, including employers and job creators in the urban innovation and broader technology sectors.
