Located on the border of North York and Scarborough, just north of Highway 401, 2450 Victoria Park Avenue is a proposed mixed-use, master-planned development of transformative proportions. The area currently contains a range of mid-rise office buildings with vast amounts of uninspiring surface parking lots. This new development will be a positive catalyst for change, leveraging the strategic location of this underutilized and underappreciated site to create a completely integrated community with excellent options for transit while incorporating sustainable design and energy-saving initiatives. The project’s key objective is to be an example of design excellence that responds to the Province of Ontario’s densification strategy along key commuter transit routes, ensuring continued growth in the Consumers Road Employment Areas undertaken as part of the Official Plan Review and Municipal Comprehensive Review by the City of Toronto.
Once fully complete, 2450 Victoria Park Avenue will comprise four residential buildings with proposed retail at ground level. Designed by the award-winning architecture firm gh3, the building’s design will focus on functional modernity promoting eco-friendly urban living features. From a landscape architecture perspective, a public park is planned in the centre of the community to provide diverse outdoor recreational opportunities and encourage an active, healthy lifestyle for residents.
2450 Victoria Park will be a key component of the City of Toronto’s Consumers NEXT master plan, a long-term, multi-modal transportation strategy that will make it one of the most commuter-friendly areas in Toronto. The site is already served by two major arteries, Sheppard Avenue East and Victoria Park Avenue. There is already frequent bus transit connecting commuters to Line 4 (Sheppard-Yonge) and Line 2 (Bloor-Danforth) of the TTC subway system, but future transit improvements will include the proposed Sheppard East LRT line—a large-scale infrastructure project already approved by the Province.
Other improvements include new bike paths to be built by the City along Sheppard Avenue East, Victoria Park Avenue and Consumers Road to connect the site to a surrounding neighbourhood fabric complemented by the construction of new streets, pedestrian routes and designated bike lanes. To meet the demand for enhanced bike use and encourage sustainable transport options, the proposed development will include ample bicycle parking spaces.
Sustainability will be a primary driver for the development, along with contemporary architecture that seamlessly integrates and acknowledges the co-existence of the public realm with private space. Energy conservation measures will include Toronto Green Standard (TGS) certification.
2450 Victoria Park Avenue aligns with Collecdev’s corporate vision of thoughtful development that’s forward-thinking, people-oriented and responsive to the surrounding community—our commitment to building complete communities.
