Coming to Humber Bay Shores
Some incredible amenities are coming to the Christie's Site
[November 2022 update]
As one of Toronto's fast growing communities, Humber Bay Shores has seen an explosion of growth over the past decade, with more to follow as a result of the approved First Capital mixed-use development, which will occupy the former Mr. Christie site located at the northeast corner of Lake Shore Blvd West and Park Lawn Road.
Residents and businesses alike have been patiently anticipating the arrival of the new Park Lawn Go Station to ease congestion and offer a direct link to downtown Toronto and a variety of other destinations around the region.
In a recent communication from Mark Grimes (now former Ward 3 Etobicoke-Lakeshore Councillor), he announced that the following amenities for the Christie lands were secured as part of the First Capital 25-year development.
- A Park Lawn GO Station
- A new community centre
- Approximately 1,500 affordable units
- Space for 3,500 new jobs
- Space for 2 new schools
- 2 new childcare centres
- A new public library
- New public parks
The projected timeline for the Park Lawn GO Station to be operational is 2024, with anticipated ridership between 4,800 to 5,900 daily by 2041.
2150 Lake Shore (former Mr. Christie Site) - Phase 1 Site Plan Submitted to City for Approval
[April 2022 update]
Progress! We have a Phase 1 Site Plan.
“2150 Lake Shore” – the former Mr. Christie site is being redeveloped into a mixed-use neighbourhood anchored by a new GO Station and TTC transit hub. Over six phases, 36 buildings will be built, adding about 7,500 new homes in various unit sizes and price points, as well as office and retail space to Humber Bay Shores.
Many community amenities are part of the plan, including a community recreation centre, two childcare centres, a public library, and two elementary schools.
The 1st phase will occupy two blocks along the east side of Park Lawn Rd from just above Lake Shore Blvd W and north to The Queensway and integrates the use of the new GO Station into the community. This is largely due to the City’s mandate that the GO Station be operational for the opening of phase 1.
The Phase 1 plan will introduce 7 towers to the area, consisting of two towers at 46 and 66 storeys, and five mid-rise buildings ranging from 9 to 13 storeys. 10% of the 1,358 residential units will be dedicated to affordable housing.
The photo seen here is a recently released Site Plan for Phase 1 of this massive project that the developers have submitted to the City for approval.
Stay tuned for developments as they occur.
