The new mixed-use development at the corner of Bloor and Dufferin will contribute to the transformation of Toronto’s up-and-coming Bloordale Village. Occupying the south-west corner, the project will create a vibrant, pedestrian oriented block to complement the character of the neighbourhood. The site will feature new ground-level retail, housing, public gathering spaces and the integration of heritage elements while allocating space for a community hub. Two new north-south streets will connect Bloor Street to Croatia Street, opening the block to pedestrians and creating a vibrant and connected development that will enliven the corner of Bloor and Dufferin.

A new on-site community park will provide space for cultural events, markets, and seasonal celebrations. Lush and inviting, the space will be a place to relax, socialize, and gather away from the bustle of the surrounding streetscape.

The historic Kent School building will be retained and repurposed to remain an important heritage building in the city. Within and around the existing school building, a vibrant community with an artist commons will thrive, providing spaces for local artists to display public art.

Public streets and laneways lined with extensive retail and community spaces connect the seven blocks within the development. With the potential to block off the street from vehicular traffic for special events, the lanes become active public spheres.
