Galleria Mall in its current state is hardly an appealing destination (save for the occasional dance party), but all that could soon change if the proposal, Reimagine Galleria, by Freed Developments and ELAD Canada is granted approval.

The transformative project could see the site redeveloped into a stunning, newly integrated community.

As Urban Toronto reports, the intended facelift designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects would see the land divided into seven smaller parcels populated by 13 buildings of varying heights and a mix of public spaces, commercial, and residential units.

Newly introduced streets would connect Dufferin to Dupont, while also maximizing access and enhanced public frontage onto Wallace Emerson Park. Plans also include a multi-storey community centre, the Five-Points Plazas, and The Mews, a pedestrian-friendly focal point featuring public space sheltered by a glass canopy.

  • Condos ranging in height from 10 to 42 storeys
  • More than 3,4oo residential units including some rental and affordable housing
  • More than 3,200 underground parking spaces
  • More than 3,500 bicycle parking spaces
  • Mixed retail and office spaces
  • The potential for relocating Wallace Emerson Community Centre within the western portion of the park
  • Opportunities for green roofs on the pavilion and Wallace Emerson Community Centre
