keating channel precinct

The Lower Don Lands’ first community will be a vibrant, sustainable mixed-use neighbourhood on Toronto’s Keating Channel.

The Keating Channel neighbourhood, located in northern quadrant of the Lower Don Lands, is the first precinct being planned for the area. The neighbourhood runs from East Bayfront to the Don River and from the West Don Lands to Villiers Street.


The Keating Channel, currently one of Toronto’s least attractive areas, will be dramatically transforming into an upbeat, unique canal destination. It will be lined with public space and traversed by a series of four new bridges for vehicles, transit, cyclists, and pedestrians.

The precinct plan for the area consists of 25 blocks that will feature a variety of built-forms and architecture that support a diversity of experience and uses.


It will feature parks and promenades along its edge, water access for boats, plus it will have amenities such as shops and canal-side cafés.


The Keating Channel, a man-made 1,100-metres long by 36-metres wide channel, anchors the neighbourhood to the north and south and provides a unique waterfront setting.


Under the plan the Keating Channel neighbourhood will contain approximately 4,000 residential units.
