After four years of careful planning, developer ELAD Canada is moving forward with the long-awaited redevelopment of the Galleria Shopping Centre at Dufferin and Dupont in Toronto's West End. Dubbed Galleria On The Park, the transformation of the 20-acre site is being planned in phases, and will eventually bring 8 mixed-use buildings with nearly 2,900 condominium residences, 150 affordable rental housing units, 300,000 ft² of retail, an approximately 8-acre park, and a larger replacement for the existing community centre on site.

The start of marketing for the project's first phase is revealing more details about the 29-storey mixed-use tower to be known as Galleria 01. ELAD is moving forward with this first tower along with the expansive Wallace Emerson Community Centre and Park, which will together establish a residential and cultural foothold for the new community in advance of future phases. 

The community's final master-plan was design by Hariri Pontarini Architects working with Urban Strategies, with the new community centre having been designed by Perkins + Will, and the first phase condo tower designed by Core Architects. Anchoring the first of several condominium buildings, the new 95,000 ft² Wallace Emerson Community Centre is set to become the city's largest public community centre, and will feature a wide range of programming and activities for a multi-generational demographic, including an outdoor skating trail, daycare, community kitchen, a dance studio, swimming pools, and a running track, among other offerings.
