Shaping the Future

We are enhancing the long-term value of the Downsview Airport Lands by creating a globally recognized mixed-use urban community in the heart of one of the fastest growing cities in North America.

Who We Are

A different kind of developer. We are working closely with the community, rights-holders, industry and non-profit interests to ensure these lands become a model for sustainable, healthy, equitable, and resilient communities, while returning meaningful returns to our shareholders.

The Downsview Opportunity

The Downsview Airport Lands are poised to become Toronto’s next destination for innovation, homes, jobs, and vibrant public spaces. Over the next 30 years, the 370-acre site will transform into a series of walkable, low-carbon communities, complete with a thriving employment hub, amenities, acres of parks and open space, and a robust mobility network, all anchored by one of Canada’s largest urban parks.

The Downsview Airport Lands are on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation who signed Treaty 13 (1805). The lands have also been the historic homelands of the Huron Wendat and Haudenosaunee peoples.

Ambitious and Responsible

We believe that development can and should create positive outcomes for the communities and environment in which it takes place.  We are taking action in areas including climate, equity, and reconciliation to ensure these lands are developed responsibly.
