Yonge and St. Clair Revitalization
Summerhill, Forest Hill, Rosedale, Moore Park – Midtown Toronto is home to the most desirable neighbourhoods in the city and Canada’s most influential business people, politicians and celebrities.
At the center of it all is the intersection of Yonge and St. Clair. These streets were once filled with packed restaurants, bustling shops, and vibrant public space. Over the years the neighbourhood has lost its identity. Office buildings became out of date, restaurants came and went and the area became overlooked as surrounding nodes were gentrifying.
Slate saw an opportunity.
Alongside its institutional capital partner, Slate began assembling its portfolio at Yonge & St Clair in 2013, with the GE portfolio acquisition. Through six separate transactions, Slate now owns ten assets in the node including the buildings on all four corners of the Yonge and St. Clair intersection. Through our hands-on asset management team, best-in-class partners, and clear vision, Slate is well on its way to transforming Yonge & St. Clair into Toronto’s premier live-work neighbourhood. The revitalized area will have a vastly improved pedestrian experience, state of the art office space and best-in-class retail shops and restaurants.
That’s how our vision creates value.
Slate, alongside award-winning public arts organization, The STEPS Initiative and City of Toronto’s StreetARToronto (StART) program are hosting world renowned street artist Phlegm to ignite Toronto with a giant eight-story mural celebrating the new Yonge and St. Clair.
Phlegm will commence painting the mural on Friday, July 8, 2016 at 11a.m ET.
The public can watch him live at 1 St. Clair West or watch a live-stream of the artist at work at: www.YongeStClair.ca. Tag the mural on Twitter using: #PHLEGMPAINTS
