A wave of new developments are being planned in Toronto’s West Don Lands area, building off of the neighbourhood’s successful initial buildout for the 2015 Pan Am Games. Among the most recent proposals is for Block 10, the Toronto Indigenous Hub. A mix of uses will be found in a cluster of buildings at the southeast corner of Cherry and Front streets, with the block’s two phases detailed in a September application for Site Plan Approval. 

Phase A is a four-storey Indigenous Community Health Centre to be managed by Anishnawbe Health Toronto. Phase B includes a five-storey training, education, and employment building to be managed by Miziwe Biiq, and 13-storey and 11-storey mixed-use condominium and rental residential buildings designed by Quadrangle for DREAM Unlimited and the Kilmer Group

Facing Cherry Street, the Anishnawbe Health Centre will contain a mix of healthcare and childcare uses. The building is to be finished in a mix of perforated aluminum panels, precast concrete, cedar clad concrete, aluminum panels, Corten steel fins, wood soffit, and a mix of window wall and curtainwall glazing. Touches of brick would help to tie the modern design in with the context of nearby heritage buildings.  Full Urban Toronto Article: Click Here
