$350 million Woodbine expansion
Racing complex to build hotel, arena for sports, concerts

Development could create 2,000 jobs, city councillor says


EMILY CHUNG
BUSINESS REPORTER

Woodbine Entertainment Group will unveil today plans for a $350 million, sprawling sports and entertainment complex expansion to its racetrack and slot venue.

The complex is expected to include a hotel, restaurants, clubs, arcades and an arena that has moveable stands and can be used as an ice rink, concert venue or convention hall.

By all accounts, it will be a fertile environment for any future casino that might grow from Woodbine's field of slots.

"This is not a casino, but I wouldn't be surprised if a casino ends up at this entertainment complex," said Rob Ford, city councillor for Ward 2, North Etobicoke, who is lobbying hard in its favour and hopes it will gain the support and approval of the rest of city council.

"From what I know, this is going to put us on the map," he said.

"It's going to blow people away."

Ford estimates the development will be a huge tourist draw and easily create 2,000 jobs in the sprawling suburban neighbourhood with more than its share of factories, strip malls and low-income housing.

Since 1,700 slot machines were added in 1999, the formerly gritty Woodbine Racetrack has undergone a dramatic transformation. A $110 million facelift added fine dining and conference rooms. The slots and other changes improved profitability after attendance plummeted in the 1980s and '90s.

But that was just the beginning. Woodbine Entertainment Group has recently been dreaming big for its largely undeveloped 283-hectare Woodbine site at Rexdale Blvd. and Highway 427. David Willmot, CEO of the company, said last October that a 300- to 400-room hotel, convention centre and entertainment centre was in the planning stages for the east end of the racing grandstand, near the slots.

"It's going to elevate horse racing to a new level as well as gaming," said Glenn Crouter, vice-president of media and community relations, thoroughbred/standard bred, for Woodbine Entertainment Group yesterday. He would give no details of the development beyond its size and price tag, but said the project will be solely commercial, with no condominiums.

Woodbine Entertainment Group's American partner in the project is experienced with this type of development, but "nothing to this extreme and nothing in Canada," Crouter said.

The developer is reported to be the Cordish Company, a family-run real-estate conglomerate based in Baltimore, Maryland. The company has several divisions including one focused on gaming and lodging and another focused on entertainment and mixed use.

Its recent entertainment projects include two Hard Rock Hotel and Casino complexes that opened in Tampa and Hollywood, Fla., in March and May 2004, respectively. Each includes a four-star hotel, a casino, a spa, restaurants, nightclubs and retail stores. A 5,000-seat arena called Hard Rock Live opened this month at the Hollywood location.

Such venues have been big draws in other North American cities, and will complement the recent growth of hotels and other facilities on the west side of Toronto, near the airport, says Bill Stone, executive managing director of Colliers International Hotels. "To have another demand generator for the hotels, just another entertainment venue in that part of the city, is a terrific idea."

310 MILLION WOODBINE LIVE!
Posted by Jeremy Rangiawha 11:31 AM 29-Jul-2005 NZST


On Thursday (July 2 , Woodbine Entertainment Group and The Cordish Company unveiled plans to develop a 25-acre entertainment district at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto.

The $310 million (CDN) project, Woodbine Live! will feature a variety of year-round entertainment opportunities in a vibrant mainstreet setting.

Woodbine Live! will transform Woodbine Racetrack into a thriving entertainment destination, including features such as: cinemas, multi-purpose live performance hall, and diverse entertainment venues such as restaurants, bars, clubs and retail shops.

Also in the development plan is a hotel complete with a pool oasis.

The district will offer visitors unique culinary, retail and entertainment experiences.

"This development is remarkable because urban design is such an integral part of the plan," said Toronto Mayor David Miller.

"These storefronts, walkways, fountains and so on have the potential to contribute greatly to the overall beauty of our city."

Woodbine Live! will be located on the north-west side of the racetrack and is accessible from Hwy. 427 via Rexdale Boulevard or Highway 27.

Woodbine Live! is scheduled to open by the end of 2007.

"We are very excited about Woodbine Live!" stated David Willmot, Chair and CEO of Woodbine Entertainment Group.

"We wanted a tourist and entertainment development that is synergistic with the energy and excitement of live horse racing as opposed to a conventional development that goes dark at 5.00 pm.

The Cordish Company shares that vision and brings a wealth of experience in creating this environment."

The two companies each bring to the project over 100 years of business experience. Woodbine Live! is the first Canadian project for The Cordish Company.

"Woodbine represents a unique opportunity for The Cordish Company to team with a phenomenal partner to create a completely unique, world-class district in one of the great cities in the world," stated David Cordish, Chairman, The Cordish Company.

"We are tremendously excited about bringing Woodbine Live! to Toronto."

Woodbine Live! will be a major economic stimulus generating over $1.5 billion (CDN) in economic benefits to federal, provincial and municipal governments.

Approximately 1,100 jobs will be created over the two-year construction period. When completed Woodbine Live! will generate over 2300 permanent jobs.

"This development is tremendous news" identified The Hon. Monte Kwinter, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services.

"Woodbine Live! will further supplement the existing entertainment and retail choices available and create thousands of new jobs in the Province."

Woodbine Entertainment Group is the largest operator of horse racing in Canada and is recognised as one of the most innovative in North America.

Woodbine operates Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, ON; Mohawk Racetrack in Campbellville, ON; the Champions Off-Track Wagering Network; Turf Lounge; WEGZ Stadium Bar; HorsePlayer Interactive and HPItv.

The Cordish Company, a third generation family owned and Baltimore-based development company, is one of the leading and most respected developers of retail/entertainment and mixed-use projects in the United States.

Cordish specializes in entertainment retail centers and has won an unprecedented six Urban Land Institute Awards for Excellence, the highest possible national award for excellence in development.

All fine and dandy, but let's see the construction start on some of this stuff! A number of these projects have been floating around for years.

Look up, way up, south of Front Street: Thirty new condo towers, some as high as 50 storeys
Peter Kuitenbrouwer
30 July 2005
National Post

TORONTO - When city fathers were building the town then known as York, they cut a thoroughfare along the lake and called it, sensibly, Front Street.

Over time, landfill extended the city beyond Front into the lake. Train tracks and industry crowded the new land.

Today, with industry largely gone, south of Front is again the new frontier, but this time they're building up -- way up.

From 2003 through June, 2005, Toronto has received applications for 30 new residential towers south of Front Street, between Jarvis and Strachan streets, including 12 towers so far this year.

Most towers exceed 30 storeys and a number are more than 40 or 50 floors high.

It's a gold rush, with glitzy sales offices on every corner as developers stake claims for towering condominiums.

"These are the prime areas in the city for intense redevelopment," says Linda McDonald, city planner for the area. "It's not as if we were going into the Annex or High Park. We have more or less a clean slate to work with. Our decision is: This is where we should put intense development. It makes sense -- it helps us to protect the stable neighbourhoods."

CityPlace alone -- the 18-hectare site adjacent to Rogers Centre -- will add as many as 12,000 people to the area, and other projects under way will more than double that number. It is as if Charlottetown was being added to downtown, all in the space of a decade.

Not everyone agrees that this is the best way to develop a city. Critics, including the downtown newspaper The Bulletin, worry Toronto could repeat the 1970s mistakes of St. James Town, where a crowd of high-rises, marketed as a yuppie paradise, slid to become a slum.

"To have a vibrant street life, you need a mix of land uses, smaller offices and cafes and grocery stores," warns Edmund Fowler, a professor emeritus at York University. He prefers compact, mixed-use areas with five-storey buildings, as in Europe; his studies show crime is higher in areas dominated by high-rise buildings.

Of course, in this new neighbourhood, as compared to St. James Town, which was made up of rental units, the condos are being sold -- and you cannot buy very much for under $200,000.

And don't try spreading doom and gloom at Lake Shore Boulevard and Bathurst Street, where seductive sales offices housed in the defunct and partly wrecked Molson brewery beckon for three massive condo projects: the Malibu, West Harbour City and WaterParkCity.

"This whole area is going to be amazing in three or five years," says Yvonne Bailey, emerging after purchasing a condo in WaterParkCity, whose first 36-storey tower is complete. She is moving from Mississauga. "I love the lake," she says. "It's beautiful. The kids are growing up." She's moving here for "more fun."

A saleswoman tells me that, with 5% down, I can carry a 820-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath with northeast skyline views and parking for about $2,000 a month for principle, interest and maintenance fees; they even throw in $2,500 toward upgrades.

At Malibu, peach, lime, azure and pink hoarding surround the site, and inside 10-foot high backlit panels in the same hues display floor plans named Caliente (two-bed, two-bath), Palomar (one bedroom and den) Encino (one bedroom) and, the smallest, La Brea (studio, 330 square feet, $110,900).

Asked what she thinks of the neighbourhood, Malibu saleswoman Pat Fleming says, "Was kinda scuzzy, changing fast."

Changing fast, indeed. Four developers: H & R, Plazacorp, Malibu Investments and Wittington Properties Ltd. (owned by the Weston family) plan a residential Fort York Neighbourhood with six towers over 30 storeys and dozens of shorter buildings, bisected by the new Gzowski Street, Sloping Sky Mews, Grand Magazine Street and Bruyeres Mews. Last week, Mayor David Miller announced the new knife-shaped June Callwood Park in this area.

"It's going to be a fantastic neighbourhood," promises Leslie Yager, a lawyer at Plazacorp.

Eastward, CityPlace is rising quickly around Rogers Centre: Concord Adex, whose largest private shareholder is Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing, has completed nine towers of its 20-tower CityPlace development. One building, set for occupancy this fall, is 52 storeys.

Cranes are up on the west side of Spadina Avenue, and Concord Adex has closed its nine-hole golf course and driving range. The clubhouse will become a kitchen for hundreds of construction workers; the developer even has its own concrete-mixing plant puffing away under the Gardiner Expressway.

"We've done very well in an active construction market, in delivering product on time," says David McComb, senior vice-president at Concord Adex. "We have the benefit of large volume discounts, which we pass on to our purchasers. The market itself is very buoyant."

Ten years ago, city planners had envisioned 10-storey buildings on this 18-hectare site. Concord Adex proposed tall buildings.

"We went out on our own expense to look at Vancouver," Ms. McDonald says. There, Concord Pacific, Concord Adex's parent company, developed 83 hectares at False Creek, largely with towers. Toronto agreed to the Vancouver model.

"They agreed to use a variety of architects and have produced some good quality buildings from a design perspective," Ms. McDonald says.

And she notes that the developer is donating a three-hectare park, plus land and cash to build a school, community centre and day care. Also in the works for the new frontier south of Front are grocery stores and a library.

Who lives at CityPlace? On Front, I meet Sarah Hines, an owner, who loves it. "Everything is right here. You've got Queen Street for shopping and the club district. It's quiet for the most part, except when the Toronto Blue Jays win."

A south Asian woman, a renter with small children, says, "there's not much of anything for kids around here." A man carrying his golf clubs, a "retired professional famous athlete," complains that no one in the building says good morning. Paul Weber and Gabe Steward, George Brown hospitality students, emerge disappointed from viewing an apartment for rent: $1,478 for a one-bedroom plus den. Won't work: the den has no door.

Later on Lake Shore, I bump into Paul Bedford, unlocking his bicycle from the WaterClubCity sales office. Mr. Bedford worked 29 years as a planner in Toronto, retiring last year as chief planner. These days, he pedals around, looking at all the change he helped bring about.

He biked down here for a look at the new projects; I ask him what he thinks.

"A bunch of us went out to Vancouver and said, 'Holy cripes, this is beautiful', " he recalls. "What they've done down here is a lot less beautiful: the streetscape, the lamps, the public realm, the design."

In Vancouver, says Mr. Bedford, city council has authority to dictate design, whereas in Toronto, developers can always appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board. "Developers these days," he laments, "seem to think there are only tall buildings."

Mr. McComb, for his part, sees his development enhancing the city.

"We have new Canadians. We have Generation Ys who are spreading their wings. We have dedicated professionals. We have mature adults wanting to live a more vibrant lifestyle. This is a real, successful community."

Even though I believe this is a legit proposal, there hasn't even been a press conference or solid proof that this is proposed yet. This is currently in the works so no render or details has been released yet.

It is proposed at the huge parking lot on Richmond & University.
