Starlight Developments is excited to share our vision to redevelop 580 The East Mall with one new 26-storey rental apartment building. The redevelopment will provide new shared indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, landscaping features, pedestrian connections, a pick-up and drop-off area, new bicycle parking and enhanced underground parking, all of which will be available to both existing and new residents. These proposed changes to the property will contribute new, high quality, rental housing options for those looking to rent in the East Mall neighbourhood, on a site located close to public transit and Highway 427, and next to Capri Park.

As part of this proposed redevelopment, the existing 16-storey building on site would remain and the new 26-storey rental apartment building would be built in the western part of the property.

Through this website, we invite you to learn more about the project and share with us your questions and feedback. We look forward to hearing from you.

The Neighbourhood

580 The East Mall is located in Etobicoke, on the west side of The East Mall, just south of Rathburn Road. The site is in an area with a variety of community services and amenities, including junior and middle schools, libraries, community centres and parks, and is within 100-metres (3-minute walking distance) of the intersection of Rathburn Road and The East Mall at which regular transit services are provided along north-south and east-west TTC bus routes.

The East Mall / Etobicoke


What’s happening to the existing 16-storey rental apartment building on the site?

There will be no changes to this building other than regular maintenance. As part of a previously approved application to the City, six new units will be built on the ground floor, along with a new fitness room. The existing building will remain as part of our proposal to redevelop the site.

How will the tenants of the existing buildings be impacted?

The development process takes a very long time and there will be no immediate changes to the property other than regular maintenance. We need to secure the necessary approvals from the City first to begin any construction on the site, which is still many years away. If we do attain the necessary approvals, there would be a new 26-storey apartment building on the site, new shared indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, landscaping features, pedestrian connections, pick-up and drop-off area, bicycle parking and enhanced underground parking. Current tenants of 580 The East Mall would have access to these new amenities and underground parking garage provided as part of this development.

Will there be any meetings with current tenants to discuss the proposal?

Yes, as soon as it is safe to do so in person, we plan on have meetings with the tenants in the existing building. Given the public health prohibitions on gatherings, we are also exploring options for virtual meetings.

What’s next in the planning process?

We submitted our development application to the City of Toronto on August 08, 2021. The next step is for the City to review our proposal and provide us with comments. The City will also be scheduling a broader community meeting, currently planned for April 04, 2022, to provide the public with the opportunity to learn more about the proposal, ask questions, and provide their feedback.

How can I ask questions or comment on your proposal?
