The architectural vision for canary district is to set standards for the future development of the entire neighbourhood.
At Canary District, a family-oriented, active street life is promoted by integrating townhouses and live/work units along the side streets and laneways. The innovative development of amenity spaces in all of the buildings encourages residents to spend time outside, while contributing to street animation and community building through mixing and interaction.
A COMMUNITY CELEBRATED AROUND THE WORLD
Every element of Canary District is designed to be open, inclusive and welcoming as a reﬂection of what makes Toronto a world-class city. In the short term, Canary District was a home away from home for the athletes of the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games. In the long term it sets the platform for establishing a great new neighbourhood in this city of vibrant neighbourhoods, and a model for 21st century mixed-use residential development. Competing against some of the ﬁnest urban communities from around the world, CANARY DISTRICT HAS CONSISTENTLY EMERGED WITH THE HIGHEST HONOURS AT VARIOUS INTERNATIONAL AWARD SHOWS. These include the 2012 Best Urban Community of the Year Award and the 2012 Canadian Architects Award of Excellence.
FUTURE EAST HARBOUR DEVELOPMENT
HOST TO THE 2015 PAN/PARAPAN AM GAMES
Canary District, home to the Athletes Village, reaped the rich legacy of the 2015 Pan/Parapan Am Games which was held in Toronto. The enduring vision of the 2015 Games is to transform communities and set new benchmarks in achieving all-round physical, mental and infrastructural excellence. The Games celebrated and engaged Toronto’s multicultural population, inspired heightened participation in sports, energized local communities and generated sustainable, long-term investment in transit, education, health and urban development. Coaches and delegates from more than 52 countries competed in 48 sports at more than 40 venues spread across 17 municipalities of the Greater Golden Horseshoe Region.
This world-class infrastructure was a shining legacy of the games and a solid foundation for Toronto to set a global example in healthy, vibrant city-building.
