Rail Deck District

Toronto, Ontario

In 2021, Fengate partnered with CRAFT Development Group and Kingsmen Group for the visionary Rail Deck District (“RDD”). RDD seeks to transform a major physical and visual barrier in the city’s fabric into a new mixed-use community with the potential for a generous public park in the heart of Downtown Toronto. The proposed development features high rise residential, affordable housing, open greenspace, retail and entertainment venues. The community would sit above the rail corridor south of Front Street and between Bathurst Street and Blue Jays Way. CRAFT acquired the air rights for the site in 2013 from the Canadian National Railway and this development would be precedent setting in Canada, in terms of the size of the community efficiently created in previously unused space above rail corridor lands.
