Construction on Toronto’s first Indigenous Hub is set to start this fall
It looks like the latest in Toronto development is on its way. And this time, it’s an Indigenous Hub! Yup, construction is expected to start this fall on a massive project that’ll be the very first in the city dedicated to Indigenous people in Toronto.
So the 2.4-acre property will be made up of a five-building complex that includes a 35,000-square-foot centre for Anishnawbe Health Toronto. In fact, the whole design has been said to be centered around the Anishnawbe Health centre and connecting with nature. Plus, there will be Indigenous employment and training agencies, family and children services, and 400 units of mixed commercial and residential space.
The overall site planning for the project is led by the Toronto-based architecture firm, Quadrangle, who also designed the condominium building, rental building, and the training, education, and employment building. The health centre portion of the project was designed by Stantec, ERA Architects are responsible for the heritage components of the Canary Restaurant building, and Two Row Architect provided Indigenous design consulting. AHT is joined by co-developers DREAM Unlimited, The Kilmer Group, and Tricon to help realize the Indigenous Hub
So the Indigenous Hub will be located at Cherry and Front Streets. And the whole project is slated to finish in 2022.
We can’t wait to see what it’s like when it’s done! Stay healthy, folks.
