East Harbour Featured in the Toronto Star

On Saturday May 7th, the Toronto Star’s Innovation Series was guest-edited by Don Tapscott – a leading authority on innovation and change. The series features Toronto initiatives which are positioning Canada as a world leader in innovation, and First Gulf’s East Harbour Development is prominently featured.

Located on a 60-acre site directly east of Toronto’s downtown core, East Harbour is the largest commercial project currently planned in Canada. First Gulf is currently in the master planning phase of the project, which has included comprehensive community engagement to understand the perspectives of key stakeholders. These early plans have positioned East Harbour to usher in a new era of healthy, connected, technology-supported workplaces, as well as various innovative measures for sustainability, connectivity, and wellness. With 10-million sf of office and 2-million sf of retail currently planned, this urban land development initiative will not only be a new centre of commerce, but also a year-round local and international destination.

Construction of East Harbour is anticipated to commence in 2018, with the first phase completed by 2023. This first phase will also include a critical, multi-modal transit hub (pictured above) which will feature connections to major regional and local transit lines.

Having a place like this will end up becoming a huge competitive advantage for the city.
