About the Project

Primaris Management Inc., the owner of Dufferin Mall, is exploring opportunities to redevelop the northern part of the site. The future development will:

  • Introduce new uses to the site, including purpose-built rental housing
  • Extend the existing mall
  • Create a better pedestrian experience along Dufferin and Croatia streets through improved streetscaping and new retail
  • Provide new park space to complement Dufferin Grove
  • Replace the existing surface parking with below-grade parking.

A combined application for rezoning and Official Plan Amendment was submitted on July 8, 2019. We look forward to continuing to work with City staff, the Councillor, and the surrounding community as the project advances.
