A section of Toronto’s Danforth Village is expected to look dramatically different over next several years, in stark contrast to the existing apartment blocks, parking lots, and big-box retailers that make up the area today.
Centred around the intersection of Main Street at Danforth Avenue, the area is part of the Main Street and Danforth GO Major Transit Station Areas (MTSA’s).
There are now more than 6,700 residential units proposed or under construction within a 400 metre radius of the intersection, including towers up to 55 storeys in height. With several developments already approved or under construction, the area shaping into one of the most dramatic urban transformations in all of Toronto.
