Planning and project resources
Transforming the 370-acre Downsview Airport Lands
The 370-acre Downsview Airport Lands are part of a larger, comprehensively planned project. To learn more, visit id8Downsview.ca for a comprehensive overview of our collaboration and engagement with Canada Lands, on the 520-acre Framework Plan.
The Framework Plan will guide the future development of these lands. It forms the basis of an application to the City for an Official Plan Amendment, and a future update by the City to the Downsview Area Secondary Plan. The City launched its own public engagement process, Update Downsview in fall, 2021. More details on the City-led process can be found here.
Planning our first district
A vibrant new hub for employment and innovation, The Hangar District will be home to thousands of new jobs, homes, shops, amenities, and multiple acres of new parks and open space, all anchored by a state-of-the-art film studio campus.
Materials for The Hangar District are included below.
