The Canary District is home of the 2015 CIBC Pan/Parapan American Athletes’ Village development, which utilized 14 hectares (35 acres) of an undeveloped section of West Don Lands. Ledcor formed a joint venture with EllisDon to construct the new facility, designed by an Integrated Design team. True to Ledcor’s beliefs in sustainability and social responsibility, the project was built to LEED®
Gold standards and generated and supported 5,200 jobs, 700 of which were in construction.
The project housed 10,000 athletes during the Toronto 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games. After The Games, the area will be transformed into a beautiful and sustainable mixed-use community called the Canary District
. It will feature residential condominiums, affordable housing, George Brown College’s first student residence, and a new YMCA, as well as plenty of retail and restaurant space.
