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.
