Keeping Ontario Growing at 675 Progress Avenue

The firm’s residential tower project at 675 Progress Avenue in the McCowan Precinct in Scarborough was featured in a recent supplement to the Toronto Star called “Keeping Ontario Growing.”

According to estimates released last year, the province’s population is projected to grow by 31.3 percent by 2041. The supplement profiled a number of the large projects and initiatives ongoing and planned for Ontario over the next 25 years, including several in Scarborough, which will benefit from a significant investment in transit infrastructure over the next 10 years.

For the 675 Progress Avenue project, the firm was retained by Selkirk Investments to plan and implement a high-density urban community with a bisecting linear park connecting two municipal park sites. The development strategy also includes a significant quantity of commercial and retail space, facilitating the growth of a sustainable, mixed-use development on a site currently occupied by a metal stamping factory. The plan includes approximately 2.5 million square feet of mixed-use development, 2,455 residential units, 180,000 square feet of commercial and retail space, parking, dedicated community services space, and residential amenity space.
