The Scarborough Junction Master Plan recently reached an important step towards transforming an industrial site into a vibrant mixed-use community. The project reached a settlement with the City of Toronto after 3.5 years of negotiation, increasing the height and density of the planned community in south Scarborough. The announcement marks a significant step towards the actualization of the development, which proposes new residential, retail, and public amenities.

The 26-acre site is located at Danforth Road and St. Clair Avenue East and is adjacent to the Scarborough GO station. DTAH is the landscape architect for the project, which adds 4.5 acres of park space, including a large central park, courtyards, mews, and urban squares. The sequence of open spaces aims to foster a healthy and active community by facilitating pedestrian movement and outdoor social interactions.

The new development ties together several established neighborhoods to create a transit-oriented community with convenient access to amenities, services, employment opportunities, and diverse, accessible housing.
