City Planning is currently reviewing Danforth Avenue between Coxwell Avenue and Victoria Park Avenue to assess the existing character, heritage resources and character-defining features of Danforth Avenue, built form, public realm, retail vitality, community services and facilities with the context of the various surrounding neighbourhoods.

Danforth Avenue is primarily characterized by low-rise (two to three storey) mixed-use buildings and is identified as an Avenue in the Toronto Official Plan. This area along Danforth Avenue is experiencing some development interest because of the size of lots, their attributes and/or availability, thus requiring a local planning framework to guide and manage growth.
