"Unilever Precinct" planning study:
Open house, May 16



Unilever_DevAppSign_01_large_320wide.jpgThe “Unilever” or “South of Eastern Precinct” is a large tract of currently industrial land on the east side of the Don River between Eastern Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard East. The former Unilever soap factory — idle for more than eight years — currently occupies the space.

The site’s owners, First Gulf Limited, want to transform the area a new major employment centre, focusing on offices, with a large retail component.

The site planners see public transit as a key factor in getting people to and from the site.

Public transit projects resulting from the Unilever scheme include:

  • a new subway station on the proposed Relief Line subway near Broadview and Eastern Avenues;
  • the new SmartTrack / GO Transit East Harbour station; and
  • an extension of Broadview Avenue south of Eastern Avenue through the centre of the site, including new streetcar service.

The City is hosting an open house to provide you an overview of area planning studies, development applications, infrastructure projects and other initiatives. You can drop by, share your thoughts and learn more about the plans.

The meeting takes place:

Tuesday, May 16
Ralph Thornton Community Centre,
765 Queen Street East,
2nd Floor Auditorium
Drop in any time from 3 until 8 p.m.
