The Future Looks Bright

Become a partner in our future and help to create sustainable growth that embraces and respects the unique character of our neighbourhood.

While the Danforth is home to some great history, we know that we are only just beginning to see the promise of change and growth in our future.

The Danforth BIA wants to help sponsor that growth by working as a partner with the developer community, the city and most importantly our residential community.

Our vision for the future includes a gentrification of our area that embraces the concepts of increasing density, sustainable development with environmentally friendly building practices and working with like minded developers to create unique and commercially viable properties on the Danforth.

Many business communities are passive or aggressive concerning development but at the Danforth BIA we choose to be active but co-operative and work with developers to sponsor growth and help facilitate a “by design” approach that values our neighbours perspective and encourages their ongoing engagement to our commercial district.

Significant brownfield properties such as the former Albany Clinic and Mr. Transmission sites are geared up for change and combined with new opportunities at the historic Danforth Music Hall, it is clear that the prospects for continued growth and improvement have never been better.

If you are active in commercial real estate development we encourage you to contact us concerning our planned forums to create a liaison with the city and our residential community.

The Sunflower Project

In celebration of BD Beats, BIA business member @cobsdanforth (156 Danforth Ave.) will be spearheading ‘The Sunflower Project’ , a fundraiser in support of a Ukrainian family’s recent resettlement in Toronto. Vibrant solar powered sunflowers (the official flower of Ukraine) will be available beginning at noon on June 4 with proceeds going directly to the family. A group of volunteer youth will be selling the sunflowers for a minimum donation of $20 each at the BIA CafeTO parkette located in the curb lane enclosure in front of COBS. The goal is to sell one hundred sunflowers by 3pm. For those unable to attend but wishing to make a donation, please click below
