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

142 Vine Avenue

This project sits on a charming residential street and the majority of it is currently leased to creative industry tenants.  

We plan to deliver a vibrant, arts and technology hub that will honour and expand the role this building has been playing in the local neighbourhood for decades.

55 Milne Avenue

This 133,000 sf former manufacturing facility is nestled inside the residential community of Oakridge. Currently quiet and vacant… the opportunity to transform it into something extraordinary and impactful is GREAT. 

We are exploring partnership ideas with local organizations and considering how we can drive environmental impact through the renovation process and operations.

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.

772 Warden Avenue

We are super excited about this project for a few reasons. 

First off, its location as part of the Golden Mile, just a 10-minute walk from the future Eglinton LRT. We’re proud to take part in the innovative neighborhood and social capital-building initiatives that are being led in this area by a visionary network of cross-sectoral partners. 

Second, the opportunity to rethink the vision for this former industrial building, which has housed a wide variety of tenants and uses over time. We are exploring a few different thematic ideas which will ultimately inform our approach to design and tenanting. From a food-focus to a not-for-profit service hub, there are many possibilities and we look forward to working with local partners to understand what concept could best serve community needs – for today and tomorrow.

880 Eastern Avenue

At 880 Eastern Avenue in Leslieville, TAS is creating resilient, purpose-driven, people-centered housing. The project represents a different approach to home building in the city, by putting wellbeing at the centre while also delivering industry-leading carbon reduction strategies.

The new 12-storey building will include 180 new homes with a mix of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom live-work units, with community-serving retail on the ground floor. The project aims to be accessible to a diversity of residents across age, income, family size and ability.    

880 Eastern will bring new energy and density to the Leslieville neighbourhood.  It’s an example of how a building can be designed to be good for both people and the planet.

Impact Highlights

Toronto’s first net-zero mid-rise. We’re using strategies like geothermal heating and cooling, a green roof, low-carbon concrete and storm water recycling to lower the carbon emissions of the building.  It will be the first ground-up development project where we will formally target net-zero embodied carbon.

Future-proofing for resilience. The building design was guided by the principle that properties built with sustainability at their core retain their value longer. The project’s many environmental features will help to ensure it is resilient against the impacts of climate change, while also reducing operating costs and enhancing livability. 

Optimizing health and well-being. Guided by our commitment to social impact, we’ve implemented unique people-centered design elements to ensure a greater living experience for residents. Thoughtful suite layouts, easy access to the outdoors, more windows for natural light and ventilation, 9ft ceilings and a central courtyard aim to enhance wellbeing. The communal courtyard was designed to help foster social connection and a sense of community.

Location: Leslieville, Toronto, Canada
Status: Re-Zoning
Anticipated Construction Start: Winter 2024
Architect & Planner: SvN Architects and Planners
Landscape Architect: gh3*

  • 180 new purpose-built rental homes including a mix of studios, one, two and three bedrooms

At TAS, we engage local communities early to ensure their needs and potentials can be integrated into our projects.  In summer 2020, we initiated a comprehensive research and consultation exercise to gather input that informed the redevelopment vision and design principles. This work also established an open line of communication for ongoing discussions regarding the site’s future.  While COVID-19 related health and safety protocols impacted our methodology, we still managed to engage with over 40 local stakeholders (at a distance of course!).  This diagram visually summarizes what we learned through these conversations, with one bar representing one comment from a community member. 

Early 2020 – TAS acquires site 

Mid 2020 – Engagement with local community & stakeholders  

Early 2021 – Rezoning application 

February 2022 – Public meeting 

Spring 2023 – Final report to City Council

Eglinton Avenue East Block

Located in Ionview neighbourhood in the burgeoning Greater Golden Mile, this is a former retail strip plaza typical of Eglinton Avenue East.  The vacant site is extremely well-connected, with access to the Kennedy Subway Station, Kennedy GO Station and the future Eglinton East LRT, scheduled to be completed this year.  

TAS intends to develop a purpose-built rental building with an affordable housing component, public realm improvements and community-serving commercial ground floor. We see this as an incredible opportunity to contribute community benefits in the Greater Golden Mile and advance TAS’s vision of inclusive, transit-oriented development. 

Community and stakeholder engagement started in Fall 2022, with a focus on listening and learning from the local community.
