We see the corner of Avenue Road and Lawrence Avenue West as an opportunity to provide a diverse mix of uses while still recognizing its current contribution to the retail amenities in the neighbourhood.

The Site

Avenue and Lawrence currently consists of a number of retail and commercial spaces as well as one 2-storey residential building. We see the future of this site to continue as a mixed-use development featuring retail, commercial, and residential uses. In early 2022, First Capital acquired 272 Lawrence Avenue West, which is now a part of the development site.
