The Daniels Corporation builds with a passion for creating vibrant communities in every sense of the word. Daniels looks beyond the bricks and mortar, including social, cultural and economic infrastructures that will create a unique sense of place. This commitment has been an integral part of Daniels’ corporate philosophy for over 35 years. Daniels has built more than 30,000 award-winning homes and apartments, master-planned mixed-use communities, and commercial and retail spaces, and has earned its standing as one of Canada’s largest and preeminent builder/developers. Company founder John H. Daniels is a towering figure of the North American real estate industry. In a career that has spanned over 50 years, the former Chairman and CEO of Cadillac Fairview Development Corporation has left an indelible mark on the quality of the places in which people live, work, play, create and shop. Over the course of his career Mr. Daniels played a key role in the development of Canadian landmarks such as Toronto’s Eaton Centre and Toronto-Dominion Centre, the 4,700 acre Erin Mills community in Mississauga and the brownfields reclamation of the Goodyear Tire Plant in Etobicoke.
INNOVATION IN MASTER-PLANNING
Daniels transforms underutilized land into sought-after master-planned communities that include residential, name-brand retail and commercial opportunities. Daniels’ land-use planning is based on the principle of integration into the existing urban fabric, creating neighbourhoods that fit seamlessly into their surroundings, providing a broad customer base for homebuyers, retailers and commercial businesses.
For example, Daniels is partnering with Toronto Community Housing to revitalize 53 of the 69 acres in Toronto's Regent Park, which is being looked at around the world as the gold standard by which challenged urban neighbourhoods can be re-imagined as healthy, sustainable communities. Regent Park is now home to national brand retailers including Tim Hortons, FreshCo. by Sobeys, RBC, Rogers and Shoppers Drug Mart.
Daniels also partnered with renowned filmmaker Ivan Reitman to build TIFF Bell Lightbox, an international destination for the world of film. In addition to the iconic home of the Toronto International Film Festival, this mixed-use development includes restaurants, ground floor retail, a commercial parking garage and the 44-storey Festival Tower Condominium Residence.
Daniels has also created iconic neighbourhoods throughout the GTA, providing residential, retail and commercial services within their NY Towers and HighPark Condominium communities in Toronto, Daniels’ City Centre West and Daniels Erin Mills in Mississauga.
Daniels’ newest master-planned, mixed-use community, ‘Daniels Waterfront – City of the Arts’, is coming soon to the corner of Lower Jarvis and Queens Quay in Toronto’s East Bayfront community. This innovative development will offer 1,320,000 square feet of unique office, retail, commercial, academic and residential opportunities that will change Toronto’s waterfront forever.
