"When it comes to East Harbour, the development has already sparked interest from a number of 'some of the world's most impressive names' in business."

People centric, sustainable, innovative – welcome to a bold new vision for Toronto’s east end.

A master planned, 60-acre mixed-use development in the heart of east downtown, East Harbour will bring more than 50,000 jobs and a vibrant new district for Torontonians to explore and enjoy.

This dynamic corner of the downtown will see a new neighbourhood rise from its industrial past. Visitors will find a modern, urban mix of office and retail sites, cultural and public spaces, entertainment, parks and restaurants, all threaded within a highly walk-able, bike-able environment.


Office. Retail. Transit. Together.

Set on a massive 60-acre site just east of the city’s center, East Harbour promises to accommodate more than 50,000 jobs to the east end of Toronto, and a vibrant new district for Torontonians to shop, experience and explore. It’s nothing less than a bigger, brighter future for downtown Toronto. And with significant connections to the local and regional transit, it’s a future that will be accessible to all.

"It stands as a strategic piece of land that has the potential to create thousands of new jobs."
- Mayor John Tory
"East Harbour: Where Toronto will go to work and play."
- Toronto Star

Development with diversity.

The East Harbour master plan calls for a stunningly varied blend of office and retail spaces, cultural and public amenities, restaurants and entertainment, parks and walking trails, and more. First Gulf is creating an entirely new neighbourhood for Toronto: with new streets, new city blocks, new transit connections. In other words, exactly what our city needs.

"It will be a jobs hub. It will be a growth hub. It will be a transit hub. It will be the hub that’s just north of a renewed waterfront. It will be the place that sparks redevelopment all across the east side of Toronto."
- Councillor Paula Fletcher

Better connections. Better connected.

At the heart of the East Harbour development is a new multi-modal transit hub that will be the best served transit station outside of Union Station in the GTA. It will serve as the front door to the development, with the majority of people coming to the site arriving by transit. It will include both local and regional transit connections, including Regional Express Rail, SmartTrack, Broadview LRT, Queen’s Quay LRT and the Relief Line subway. All these modes of transit will converge at the East Harbour station in a spectacular new structure that is itself generating the kind of public excitement rarely seen around urban design projects in our city. This structure will be seamlessly connected in to the rest of the development, through weather-protected connections to create a PATH-like system for all those who work or visit East Harbour.
