The Toronto 2015 Pan Am Athletes’ Village is being constructed on an 80-acre site next to the Don River in Toronto’s West Don Lands. During the games, the village will be home to up to 10,000 athletes, coaches, and team officials; attract 250,000 tourists; and create approximately 5,200 jobs across the Greater Toronto Area. It will incorporate a full range of conveniences and amenities. After the Games, the Village area will become the Canary District, a mixed-use, inclusive, and pedestrian-friendly riverside community that will include market condos and townhomes as well as affordable housing, a new YMCA, and a George Brown College student residence.
Construction has continued this year since the topping-off ceremony in December 2013. The project was nearing completion by the end of 2014, and the village will be ready to turn over to the organizing committee in early 2015.
