With extensive experience revitalizing under-utilized land in toronto, Counterpoint is assisting with the design of a new 7-acre mixed-use community located at Evans Avenue and the 427.
Currently, the site is under-utilized industrial land, and our client is aiming to reinvent the space - turning it into diverse community that brings together commercial, residential and institutional uses.
• The current plan involves creating over 700 residential units, combined with the development of commercial and institutional facilities to effectively support the new neighbourhood.
• Despite the site’s proximity to Hwy 427 and the QEW, the site isn’t easily accessible. The redeveloped site as currently envisioned will include the creation of a new public road network that will open up access to several development blocks with a variety of land uses. This solution will connect the new community of residents and businesses to major cross-city transportation networks and routes.
• Highly innovative stormwater management measures will be utilized to substantially reduce or eliminate the requirement for costly end-of-pipe infrastructure, such as stormwater ponds. Stormwater management in urban development can often be complex in nature, but with such broad expertise in the development and redevelopment of land of this nature, Counterpoint can recommend cost-effective and workable solutions.
• Our extensive experience in all aspects of the approvals process in the City of Toronto enables us to handle the various complexities associated with the redevelopment of large parcels of land such as 580 Evans Ave. From the Official Plan Amendment and Rezoning stages through to the Plan of Subdivision and Site Plan Approvals process, we have the proven capabilities and experience to deliver a successful project.
