Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands

Opportunities to enhance public spaces and advance community connections are key to building a healthy and vibrant City. The Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands, located on the east side of Lonsdale Avenue between East 21st Street and East 23rd Street, will be home to a new mixed-use community, which will be constructed in multiple phases. 

The Neighbourhood Lands were rezoned in 2018 and the first phase of the Neighbourhood Lands redevelopment, at the southern portion of the site, is currently underway. The first phase includes a rental and commercial mixed-use development led by Darwin Properties and Minto Group, as well as a seniors’ residential care facility led by Sunrise North.

At completion of all phases, the Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands will deliver significant benefits, including: 

  • Childcare
  • Non-market housing
  • Seniors' assisted living spaces
  • A new 1-hectare City park linking to the Green Necklace 
  • Streetscape improvements to support improved public transit, walkability, and cycling connections
  • Proximity to the revitalized Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre

Guided by Council’s Strategic Plan, the Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands are being designed with a focus on healthy City planning, urban design, innovative solutions to family-friendly living, and climate and sustainability goals.  

Next Steps

Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands development and construction will be phased to facilitate the delivery of a new Harry Jerome Recreation Centre. Notifications about construction and any associated road impacts will be posted well in advance for the community.
