In mid-2019, City Council and the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) approved the conversion of the majority of the site at 2150 Lake Shore Blvd W. to a Regeneration Area, allowing for a mix of uses such as residential and retail, as well as lands for employment uses. A Secondary Plan process has begun, and will be led by the City of Toronto. You can read more about it on the City of Toronto’s website, or visit the project page for more information about upcoming key milestones in the planning process and future community engagement sessions.
First Capital has submitted an Official Plan Amendment Application (OPA) to address present and future community needs, including a proposed integrated GO/TTC Transit Hub as well as improved cyclist, pedestrian and road infrastructure and more places to eat, shop, live, work and experience.
Our aspirations for a
new heart of Humber
A community where people can live, work, shop, play and learn.
A neighbourhood that is connected locally and regionally.
A healthy and sustainable place to live.
Diverse retail that meets the needs of the community.
A vibrant public realm that celebrates local culture.
Retain the Christie Tower as an iconic landmark.
First Capital and internationally renowned Master Planners, Allies and Morrison are working together to create a Master Plan that re-imagines 2150 Lake Shore Blvd. W. as a new dynamic heart of Humber Bay Shores. First Capital will be working with the local community, City and Provincial Government (Metrolinx) to develop a mixed-use, transit-oriented development that meets the needs of the neighbourhood.
IDEA FAIR #1
On February 6, 2018, First Capital held Idea Fair #1 to share preliminary thoughts and concepts, meet the community and gather feedback for the redevelopment of the former Mr. Christie site at 2150 Lake Shore Blvd. W. The event provided the community with an opportunity to learn about First Capital and initial ideas for a transit-oriented, mixed-use community at Humber Bay Shores. We were excited to discuss ideas with the approximately 600 people that attended and review the 178 comment forms that were collected during and after the event.
IDEA FAIR #2
WE EXPLORED & IDEATED
On November 21, 2018, First Capital continued the conversation with the community and heard some incredible feedback. Ideas were brainstormed and shared for creating a complete community at Humber Bay Shores.
