The corner of Bloor and Dufferin could be getting a makeover.

And a massive one at that.

After the Toronto District School Board declared the Bloor and Dufferin site as surplus in 2014, Capital Developments and Metropia were selected to redevelop the 7.3-acre TDSB property, according to the project website.

The site will feature new ground-level retail, housing, public spaces, and an integration of heritage elements.

In terms of housing, the project outlines a plan that includes diverse housing options to accommodate everyone from students to families. They also plan to create and explore affordable housing options with the City of Toronto.

Developers have released renderings of the area, showing plans to add a new midblock connection extending from Bloor Street to Croatia Street.

The project is currently in its revision stage, and developers plan to submit the application to the City of Toronto by the fall.
