Almost a century ago, the area is known as Leaside, a neighbourhood located northeast of Toronto’s downtown core, had a plan to create a completely new community where residential and commercial converged as one.
First Capital Realty’s Leaside Village was built with that vision – a retail destination, a premium location, a design that honoured the past and an environmental commitment that fortified the future.
The building at houses Longo’s supermarket is a registered Ontario Heritage site. What started as primarily farmland, the building was built in 1919 as a locomotive facility for the Canadian Northern Railways. It soon closed, and in the 1930s was purchased and retrofitted to manufacturer packaging supplies. It now stands as a testament to our commitment honouring the past and an environmental commitment that fortified the future.
Leaside Village is a 120,000 sf open centre situated at Laird Dr. and Esandar Dr. It is anchored by a 48,000 sf Longo’s supermarket, a 12,000 sf Linen Chest, a 7800 sf Amsterdam Barrel House and a 6800 sf Beer Store, Leaside Village also offers a mix of quaint shops and major retailers. The surrounding residential area consists of over 70,000 family households and an average household income of over $134,800 per year within a three-kilometre radius.
