A master planned, 60-acre mixed-use development in the heart of east downtown, East Harbour will bring more than 50,000 jobs and a vibrant new district for Torontonians to explore and enjoy.
This dynamic corner of the downtown will see a new neighbourhood rise from its industrial past.
Visitors will find a modern, urban mix of office and retail sites, cultural and public spaces, entertainment, parks and restaurants, all threaded within a highly walk-able, bike-able environment.
At its position to the east of the mouth of the Don River near Eastern Avenue and Broadview Avenue, East Harbour lies at the future meeting point of no less than five transit lines — four of which already exist. The future East Harbour transportation hub is expected to provide service to the Lakeshore East and Stouffville GO Train lines, the Queen and Broadview streetcars (the latter of which will receive an extension), and the future Ontario/downtown relief subway line.
Expected to become Toronto’s second busiest transit hub, the East Harbour is expected to help relieve pressure on the overburdened Union Station by providing an alternate way in and out of downtown Toronto. And, owing to its placement at the confluence of the Don Valley Parkway, Gardiner Expressway, and Lakeshore Boulevard, this location will provide a multitude of motorways for local drivers.
This easy access to existing transportation infrastructure sets East Harbour apart from the heavy development that have turned much of downtown Toronto’s industrial lands into intensive residential neighbourhoods. By integrating land use with transportation planning, local residents have the unique benefit of enjoying immediate access to multiple transit options.
