The five-phase rebuild of Toronto's Regent Park neighbourhood from The Daniels Corporation and Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCH) has been making steady progress for 14 years now, with things really heating up in the last couple of years. Much of the construction activity in the area is happening at the east end of the neighbourhood near the Dundas and River intersection, where five different residential developments are in varying stages of construction as part of the third phase of the redevelopment.

The furthest project along right now is happening at 'Block 17 North', on River Street north of Dundas, where the area's newest TCH affordable rental building is closing in on completion. The Wallman Architects-designed 11-storey building started construction back in 2017, and is on track to welcome its first residents in the coming months.

Also approaching completion is The Wyatt, topped out and largely clad on the south side of Dundas, just west of River Street. The 27-storey KPMB Architects and IBI Group-designed condominium tower will add 342 new condominium units to the neighbourhood, while helping to extend the growing retail strip along this stretch of Dundas.

Around the corner on River just south of Dundas, The Daniels Corporation's apartment and townhouse complex at Block 30, known as EVOLV, is well into construction, though not quite as far along as the projects mentioned above. Designed by IBI Group, the project is bringing a 29-storey market-rate apartment tower and two blocks of three-storey townhomes to the site. The tower component is rising fast, the townhome blocks are structurally complete, and installation of window wall cladding is now adding to the exteriors.

Following closely behind the progress of EVOLV, Daniels' DuEast is bringing a Core Architects-designed complex with 11 and 29-storey condominium buildings to the north side of Dundas, west of River. DuEast's three-storey podium is now in place, and forming is moving along for the tower levels above. The complex's towers now stand eight storeys above the Dundas and Sumach intersection.

Immediately east of the DuEast site, the next project set to rise in the neighbourhood is The Daniels Corporation's Artworks Tower, a new market condominium development under construction on the northwest corner of Dundas and River Streets. Excavation of the site bottomed out last month, and the first footings are being formed at the base of the pit in advance of a crane and the subsequent rise of underground levels.
