REGENT PARK SHOWS WHAT CAN BE DONE WHEN CITY, PROVINCE & A DEVELOPER WORK TOGETHER

DANIELS Development has done a super job in REGENT PARK, mixing market value & public housing, creating parkland, playgrounds, soccer fields, a running track, an ice rink, a state-of-the-art aquatic centre, theatres, a fashion design school, restaurants, community gardens, a supermarket, coffee shops, a bank, senior’s housing, a new community centre – the works.

The massive Regent Park rebuild is still going on after a decade, with at least another five years of construction ahead. What some once called “a project” is becoming a bright, new neighborhood.

Two-thirds of the work is finished, but there’s still more to come.  To watch Regent Park evolve take the #506 streetcar to Sackville Street and Gerrard East – and walk south.
