An established low-rise storefront commercial corridor that will undergo massive changes once the new condos at 501 Yonge St, 460 Yonge St and The Massey Tower are built. The Church Yonge Corridor is one of Toronto’s most walkable vibrant neighborhoods and as a result, it will be exciting to see what happens as the corridor gets more residential population. The area is already home to the highest pedestrian volume in Canada is at the intersection of Yonge and Dundas Street, with more than 53,000 people passing through every 8 hours.

Redevelopment plans and studies are being done on Yonge from Gerrard to Dundas and includes the work already done by Ryerson at the former Sam the Record Man site and Maple Leaf Gardens.


Future Development Potential: Medium

Cost of land and fragmented ownership will limit developers from assembling parcels to build upon, but expect projects that go in this corridor to be tall (i.e. 55+ Storeys)
