While the Danforth is home to some great history, we know that we are only just beginning to see the promise of change and growth in our future.
The Danforth BIA wants to help sponsor that growth by working as a partner with the developer community, the city and most importantly our residential community.
Our vision for the future includes a gentrification of our area that embraces the concepts of increasing density, sustainable development with environmentally friendly building practices and working with like minded developers to create unique and commercially viable properties on the Danforth.
Many business communities are passive or aggressive concerning development but at the Danforth BIA we choose to be active but co-operative and work with developers to sponsor growth and help facilitate a “by design” approach that values our neighbours perspective and encourages their ongoing engagement to our commercial district.
Significant brownfield properties such as the former Albany Clinic and Mr. Transmission sites are geared up for change and combined with new opportunities at the historic Danforth Music Hall, it is clear that the prospects for continued growth and improvement have never been better.
If you are active in commercial real estate development we encourage you to contact us concerning our planned forums to create a liaison with the city and our residential community.
