Regent Park Revitalization Master-Planned Community
An Unprecedented Urban Transformation
Toronto’s Regent Park revitalization is like nothing the city has seen before. This master-planned community began work a decade ago and continues to attract awards and global recognition, having turned a challenged, inner-city pocket into a healthy and sustainable neighbourhood in Toronto’s downtown east. Designed by Daniels Corporation, a leader in these kinds of projects, Regent Park is currently in the third of five phases.
In 2002, the developers partnered with Toronto Community Housing to transform the Regent Park area, nearly 70 acres immediatly east of the downtown core. The plan’s initial phase, occupying several blocks at the southeast corner of Dundas Street East and Parliament, mostly concentrated on condominium towers and townhomes, which replaced a series of dilapidated housing projects.
Recently announced, after completion of phase 3, TCHC will end their partnership with Daniels Corporation. Following a competitive request for proposals (RFP), between The Daniels Corporation, Tridel and Capital Developments; Tridel was ultimately chosen for the final two phases.
Phases four and five will commit Tridel to a $26.8-million community economic development program. This plan will be shaped over the course of a year, and will call on community opinions and involvement.
The master-planned community now comprises three phases, including a mix of high-rises, mid-rises, townhomes and unparalleled community facilities. Several phases also include rental housing. This rapidly-growing neighbourhood now offers something for everyone, from young professionals to growing families. The development features fun – and functional – amenities that put residents first in a trendy downtown location where every urban convenience imaginable is at your fingertips.
There's A Space For You Here
Regent’s Park most recently launched condominium is The Wyatt, a 27-storey tower near River Street and Dundas Street East. Like many buildings by The Daniels Corporation, it features upscale finishes, rich flooring, open-concept floorplans and a variety of unit styles, including studios, one, two and three-bedroom. The Wyatt has some amazing amenities, including an indoor rock-climbing wall and a fully-equipped fitness studio that features WELLBEATS technology. This technology allows you to work out with a professional instructor virtually in a range of classes, from kickboxing to pilates. In addition to typical condominium amenities like a party room, outdoor terrace and barbecue stations, the building – like many in Regent Park – features family-friendly amenities, including a Kids’ zone outfitted by Mastermind Toys. This space includes toys, books, puzzles, a craft room, play room and a clean-up counter.
Regent Park’s second phase, which is now completely built, brought an exceptional roster of community amenities to the area. These include brand-new athletic grounds, complete with a skating rink, soccer fields and a basketball court. A six-acre park anchors the entire community and features plenty of greenspace, community gardening plots and a splash pad and playground for kids. Next door is an aquatic centre, which offers a variety of classes and programs for all ages and lifestyles.
Probably one of the most-talked about features of Regent Park is Daniels Spectrum, a 60,000-squre-foot community and cultural hub that features galleries, along with arts and cultural programs, including the Regent Park Film Festival, the Collective of Black Artists (COBA) and Native Earth Performing Arts.
This a truly pedestrian-friendly community where bistros, coffee shops, banks and grocery stores are all integrated. Should you need to commute, the Don Valley Parkway is easily accessible, as are two 24-hour streetcar lines, which run through the community.
The Daniels Corporation has long believed their responsibility as developers goes beyond physical structures and the simple addition of towers to the city skyline. With all their master-planned communities, they turn this belief into action, contributing to the overall social fabric of each neighbourhoods they work in. That’s what makes this condominium development so unique. More than just a cluster of buildings, it’s become a close-knit community of friends and families who can live their life to the fullest.
Few developers know their way around a master-planned community like the Daniels Corporation. With some of the city’s most livable and sustainable mixed-use projects under their belt, including another one nearby, they’ve been the recipients of several recent awards, including two Community of the Year awards by BILD and an Ontario High-Rise Builder of the Year designation. They have a reputation not only for the quality and richness of their suites and amenities, but for partnering with arts-related and community programs to help weave arts and culture into each of their developments.
