Four-tower, mixed-use community in Etobicoke, Ont., to include over 1,300 suites and 62,000 sq. ft. of shared amenity space.
EllisDon’s development arm, EllisDon Developments, is opening sales this month for Arcadia District, its master-planned community in Etobicoke, Ont. The four-tower project on Fieldway Road will be steps from Bloor St. and Kipling Ave., and spans nearly 15,000 square metres in an area of Toronto designated as one of Ontario’s urban growth centres.
Located in a transit-oriented neighbourhood, the project’s four towers will range from 12 to 42 storeys, with more than 1,300 suites available. Units vary from 380 to 1,080 sq. ft. The mixed-use space will include 62,000 sq. ft. of shared amenity room in The Arcadia Club, roughly 14,000 sq. ft. of retail space, and a new 26,000 sq. ft. park on the east end of the site.
The community has already been a significant development focus for the city of Toronto. In 2021, the Dundas, Bloor and Kipling corridor was reconfigured as a walkable, livable, workable centre. As part of this development focus, the City of Toronto will be building the Etobicoke Civic Centre in the area, to provide a wide range of new public facilities, including a new Civic Square, a daycare, a new public library, and a new community recreation centre.
“We are incredibly proud to introduce Arcadia District, a four-tower master-planned community in Etobicoke City Centre, one of the first, major projects at the heart of a community set to be transformed, as a provincially designated urban growth centre,” stated Chris Smith, vice-president of EllisDon Developments. “The idea behind Arcadia District was to plan a community that had all the amenities and services people want close to home. Between our four towers, we will build a diverse range of exceptional amenities and retail space, which we believe to be unparalleled to other developments in the market.”
