With its beginnings as host to the 2015 Pan/Parapan Am Games Athletes Village, the 35-acre master-planned Canary District, in the West Don Lands, is now bringing new energy and vitality to Toronto's downtown east. Home to the 82,000 sq.ft. Cooper Koo Family YMCA, George Brown College's first student residence, residential buildings and the health-focused, vibrant Front Street Promenade, Canary District is an active and growing community. Connected to the 18-acre Corktown Common park, trails, neighbouring Distillery District, Leslieville and downtown Toronto, Canary District is the perfect address to live, work, shop and play. With the new addition of Canary Block, now is the ideal time to call Canary District home.
