The once vibrant St.Clair Ave & Yonge St area become tired. Slat asset management L.P., a Toronto based real estate company, began plans to revitalize the intersection earlier this year. All four corners will be renovated to attract residents to outdoor spaces as they modernize the front facade at the TD building, renovate retail concourse and Scotia bank, and tear down the two-storey facade of the former CFRB building on the northwest corner to introduce a multi level restaurant.
The aim is also to bring better amenites to the area. It's about office spaces as well as about the neighbourhood around you. Essentially you are at the nexus of Moore Park, Rosedale, and Forest Hill at St. Clair.
This summer the sustainable Thinking & Expression on Public Space (STEPS) initiative, an award winning public are organization, will partner with London-based street artist Phlegum to bring a massive mural to the side of the building at 1 St. Clair Ave. W. The project commissioned by slate wil be the first of many changes meant to beautify the intersection.,
