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.

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.

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.

Connecting Cooksville

Located at the corner of Hillcrest and Hurontario in Mississauga, Connecting Cooksville is the only tri-mobility hub in the city with direct access to Regional Transit, Rapid Bus Service and the future Light Rail Transit. It is the ideal location for density and responsible growth. 

Cooksville is a network of long-time residents and newcomers alike seeking opportunity and generating possibility in thriving local businesses and shared cross-cultural pride. Our proposal contributes to the evolving story of Cooksville, creating places where people can live, work and connect together. 

Connecting Cooksville is an ambitious plan that will come to life over the next several years. It leverages smart density to deliver meaningful impact for the community.

Highlights of the proposed plan include: 

  • A generous and accessible public realm covering nearly half of the site, with a central community gathering space.
  • A new full-service community centre and public library to be delivered in partnership with the City of Mississauga, including the potential for an aquatics centre, gymnasium, multi-use meeting and gathering spaces, and a daycare. 
  • More than 2,200 new homes to be delivered as a mix of condominiums and purpose-built rental apartments, including 250-300 homes as part of an affordable home ownership program with Options for Homes.  
  • A commitment to sustainable building practices and human-scaled design, optimizing daylight and passive ventilation, and taking a ‘landscape-first’ approach that emphasizes biodiversity, resilience and well-being. 

TAS engaged thoughtfully with the local communities to ensure their needs and aspirations were integrated into the plan. Gathering input through interviews, focus groups, surveys and workshops, our goal was for the community to help shape the investment being made in their neighbourhood.  

We are proud to be a part of the Cooksville Community Hub Working Group – a group of local residents, community organizations and businesses interested in building connections and supporting people in the area. We enthusiastically lent our site to local community groups like Heart Comonos for their activations and events which create a diverse and dynamic community presence

This project is an example of how responsible growth and smart density can drive community benefits and meaningful impact for the community. It is a once in a generation opportunity to contribute to the cultural fabric and enduring prosperity of Cooksville, while bringing over 2000 new homes to the heart of Mississauga.

This considerate project was designed around a serene courtyard with a spa concept in mind. Going beyond the generic residential offerings available in the area at the time, we created a unique community that seamlessly integrated apartments, lofts and townhouses together in one project. Lushly landscaped, immaculately finished and designed to offer light, warmth and a peaceful atmosphere, DIA helped expand and improve condominium living in North York.

Literally named for its location at Dundas Street West (DU) and Keele Street (KE), we are tremendously proud of this project, which brings contemporary design to a historic and dynamic neighbourhood. A strong sense of community radiates from every corner, every shop, and every restaurant in the Junction, and DUKE was thoughtfully designed to complement this unique local context.

Our approach was guided by a commitment to quality over quantity and design in every detail. The modern mid-rise building’s articulated brick façade seamlessly weaves into the local neighborhood fabric and its expansive south-facing terraces offer breathtaking unobstructed views. A number of sustainability features were integrated into the design including: energy recovery ventilators and energy efficient appliances; harvest planters, water efficient landscaping and a green roof; programmable thermostats and sensor-managed lighting in common spaces.
