10 North Queen Street

This large industrial warehouse is strategically positioned at the very centre of an emerging cluster of commercial activity currently burgeoning in Etobicoke Lakeshore, just south of the Kipling GO and TTC stations. 

We see tremendous opportunity to contribute to the evolution of this area through the introduction of a lively hub that connects local people and ideas. We plan to demise the existing building into smaller units, and to mix light industrial uses with office, production and maker spaces. And there’s great outdoor space that partnering groups could activate for community uses and events.  

If you have a suggestion, great partnership idea, question or just want to get involved – we want to hear from you!

This project is part of TAS’s Community Hub Strategy, which sees us lead the adaptive re-use, lease-up and operations of underutilized warehouse spaces across the GTHA.   

We are transforming these existing assets into dynamic hubs that include a variety of commercial uses. They are designed to nurture a vibrant mix of tenants from across different sectors, including small businesses and social enterprises. 

We are proud to be taking a sustainability-first approach. Retrofitting is inherently more green than demolishing and building new. We are further reducing the carbon footprint of these existing buildings by improving the energy efficiency.

Location: Etobicoke Lakeshore, Toronto, Canada

2 Tecumseth Street

Located in the heart of Toronto’s arts and entertainment corridor, 2 Tecumseth is an incredible urban regeneration project that attempts to embrace the complexities and contradictions that make neighbourhoods great.  

The site formerly housed a decommissioned abattoir, and is directly adjacent to the historic Wellington Destructor, a century-old garbage incinerator. Its topography is defined by the now-buried Garrison Creek.

Inspired by this rich context, the architecture and landscape design will embrace Toronto’s ecological, urban and industrial histories while adding a contemporary layer that will give the site new meaning and purpose. The project will transform the former abattoir complex into a sustainable and vibrant new community and destination in Toronto’s downtown west. 

Its vision and design were informed by the findings of a comprehensive multi-year community engagement process and an unwavering commitment to drive social and environmental impact through mixed-use real estate development. 

We plan to mix and optimize uses to create a wonderfully real place where people from many walks of life can live, work and play – together. The lively and iconic destination will be a place where residents and visitors of all ages can co-create a new kind of urban experience. 

Our impact objectives are focused on: prioritizing nature and environmental sustainability and nurturing a diverse and inclusive community.

3730 Kingston Road

3730 Kingston Road is located at the edge of the Scarborough Village neighbourhood. It’s a prominent corner and home to some well-loved local businesses that serve the community. The neighbourhood is a popular destination for new immigrants and home to many different cultural groups, as well as first-time buyers, young professionals, families, and seniors.

Over time, the existing 2-storey plaza has become rundown and underutilized. But when TAS purchased the site from the previous owner in 2022, we saw its potential. It’s near both the Guildwood GO and Eglinton GO stations, which will allow for easy commutes to the downtown core and other areas in the GTA. There’s also a proposed Eglinton East LRT stop directly beside the site as well as easy access to Scarborough Bluffs and Toronto’s east-end waterfront parks.

The project is ideally positioned at a gateway corner of Scarborough Village, creating a unique placemaking opportunity and offering the potential to act as a local landmark to the neighbourhood.

Our proposal is for a mixed-use building containing rental units including 10% affordable housing and ground floor community-serving commercial uses. The design prioritizes the environment by using sustainable building practices and technologies. It also includes generous amenity space for residents by way of a central courtyard.

It will serve the community by creating a more vibrant public realm along Kingston Road, more attractive, modern retail spaces and a range of new housing options for individuals and families in Scarborough.

3730 Kingston Road is emblematic of TAS’s approach to real estate development. Using impact to unlock the value of underutilized land, this site presents an opportunity to drive positive social, environmental and economic impact in Scarborough Village.

At TAS, we engage communities early to ensure our projects reflect local history, needs and identity. Our goal is to build good working relationships with the community and ensure the redevelopment is respectful and responsive to the community.  At 3730 Kingston Road, our engagement process included a public survey, a series of stakeholder Interviews and speaking to our direct neighbours. We identified the following opportunities through our initial community engagement:  

  • Celebrate the rich cultural diversity of the neighbourhood
  • Use placemaking and placenaming to reflect local history and identity.
  • Target housing to address local needs  
  • Develop the ground floor to serve the community  
  • Help to address food security through meanwhile uses
  • Support a strong sense of community through design and programming
  • Use design and public art to beautify the public realm  
  • Work with the community to address local concerns

The engagement process is on-going. We continue to connect with our neighbours and local stakeholders to explore opportunities for delivering community benefits with this project. Stay tuned for news about some exciting temporary site activations in summer 2023.

38 Walmer Road

“In its beginnings, Walmer was characterized by openness—to different types of people, and to different ideas and projects.” – A Century for the City, Walmer Road Baptist Church 1889-1989 by Donald Goertz

This site is located in the heart the Annex, one of Toronto’s most dynamic and storied neighbourhoods. It’s situated on traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. 

The existing church has long been a place of community and social innovation. It’s where a food bank, theatre initiative, and Canada’s first co-located daycare all thrived and a diversity of people came together for over a century.

TAS and our partners, the Walmer Road Baptist Church have been working together to create a bold new vision for this site. Our proposal includes: 

  • Adaptive reuse of the existing sanctuary, to include a new space for the Walmer Road Baptist Church and a new commercial community hub.  
  • 162 new condominiums in a 20-story building. 
  • A publicly accessible courtyard for residents and members of the local neighbourhood.  

The commercial community hub will be a welcoming, inclusive place that restores the sanctuary’s historical role as a place for community, connection and social innovation.  

We are excited to evolve this place at the corner of Lowther and Walmer in the Annex with and for the community and see this project as a tremendous example of our commitment to building for impact. 

Public Participation

TAS takes a ‘listen first” approach to community engagement. We started engaging with the local community in 2020, with the commitment to learn and incorporate a diversity of perspectives into the design and programming of the site.  

Our broad engagement process included a series of interviews, workshops, site tours, a survey and an art installation. We heard from a wide variety of groups and individuals about their vision for 38 Walmer Road. Some of the key themes were:  

  • Ensure that the sanctuary program is inclusive and equitable 
  • Prioritize the sanctuary’s role as a community space, and particularly as a multi-purpose meeting space 
  • Acknowledge and share diverse histories on the site 
  • Prioritize indigenous truth and reconciliation by partnering with local indigenous community members 
  • Design to a higher standard for accessibility outdoor spaces that might include gardens, seating and landscaping. 

The community input informed the vision for the redevelopment, particularly the plans for sanctuary and courtyard and will continue to inform our work as we develop more detailed plans for the commercial community hub.  

We’re tremendously grateful to all who participated in the process and shared their ideas about the future of 38 Walmer Road.

385 The West Mall

This project presents an opportunity to re-imagine how purpose-built rental, for-sale condominiums, and community-focused commercial space can all be integrated on one large suburban site. Our local research and engagement process revealed a need for increased health and social services as well as senior’s housing in this part of Etobicoke, which has been expanding rapidly over the past decade. We believe that thoughtfully curated not-for-profit and commercial partnerships will help address these gaps and ensure the project functions as a community hub that serves its local neighbourhood.

A wellness focus has also inspired the project design, which emphasizes social connections and the great outdoors through: generous public realm improvements featuring an extensively landscaped raised courtyard; a public conservatory; and expansive rooftop amenities.

3803 Dundas Street West

We are targeting a thoughtful mix of residential and ground floor commercial tenants to attract and service those living within the building, across the neighbourhood and beyond. 

Our design was directly inspired by the project’s location on the edge of the Humber River Valley Ravine, and is characterized by unique landscaping, balconies that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor space, and generous public realm improvements.

56 York Boulevard

56 York Boulevard is a beloved local landmark.  

Built in 1856, it housed Coppley Apparel, a high-end suit and jacket production company for nearly 140 years and played a key role in Hamilton’s textile trade. 

Located downtown at the corner of York Boulevard and MacNab Street North, right across from established community hubs like the Farmer’s Market and the Central Hamilton Public Library, the building has sat quiet, vacant and full of potential for several years.

We’re excited to restore its original character and transform it into a new kind of community hub that will include a lively mix of commercial uses and tenants. 

Imagine a café and offices alongside creative spaces and community-serving organizations – this project will buzz with activity, deliver positive social and environmental impact and help make Hamilton’s downtown core even more vibrant. 

We started engaging Hamiltonians in late 2021 – seeking input on our design and programming ideas. 

We are currently exploring a series of innovative approaches that will help ensure the project drives positive impact for people and the planet. Ideas include:  

  • Green and smart technologies  
  • Accessible design  
  • Offering subsidized below-market rents to some tenants 
  • Developing new models that will help some tenants build equity and participate in the value the project generates

This project is part of TAS’s Community Hub Strategy, which sees us lead the adaptive re-use, lease-up and operations of underutilized warehouse spaces across the GTHA.

Improving energy efficiency and reducing the carbon footprint of existing buildings is significantly greener than demolition and new construction, and we’re proud to be taking a sustainability-first approach. 

In late 2021 and early 2022, we connected with over 20 Hamiltonians (representing 17 organizations) regarding TAS’s plans to re-imagine the building. Several themes emerged from these rich and interesting conversations:

  1. Heritage is important! People love this building and are keen to see it preserved and celebrated; it is a unique asset and a potential symbol of what Hamilton can be moving forward.
  2. Collaboration and connectedness are key, and should be maximized when considering the mix of tenants, partnerships, programming and uses.  In addition to office spaces, many people suggested informal gathering areas, flexible meeting rooms and event spaces that would be inclusive, accessible and affordable to a diverse range of users.
  3. Many different tenants and partners could call the space home, and suggestions spanned a wide spectrum: from co-located health and social service organizations to business, film, technology, and creative sector uses.
  4. For community-serving tenants, affordability, stability and the ability to access shared amenities or services were identified as desirable attributes.

We’ll keep updating this site with updates as the process and our plans evolve. So stay tuned, more to come!

7 Labatt Ave & 77 River St

This uniquely positioned project sits between the bustle of downtown and an extensive natural refuge in the Don Valley. It’s right on the edge of Regent Park – whose revitalization, spirit, and people embody Toronto’s bright future. The project has been designed with great care and intent to strengthen this vibrant and dynamic local neighbourhood.

At its heart is our partnership with The Salvation Army, with whom we’re building a new 12,500 square foot branch. The building’s podium will be open and lively with commercial activities thoughtfully curated to welcome and be used by building residents, local neighbours, and visitors from further afield. Finally, residents will be serviced by a unique social and wellness focused amenity program.
