East Harbour Advances with Council-Approved Master Plan

Urban Toronto June 29, 2018

A major milestone has been reached in the planning of Toronto's new 'Downtown East', as City Council approved the East Harbour master plan for rezoning this week, finalizing the Unilever Precinct Planning Framework and giving the go-ahead for the project to move forward. The East Harbour development is led by First Gulf and proposes to construct nearly 10 million square feet of office, retail, commercial, and cultural spaces with an integrated public space network and a multi-modal transit hub, all built to accommodate up to 50,000 workers within the 25-hectare site on the former property of the Unilever soap factory.
