The long-term effects of COVID-19 on the Greater Toronto Area development industry are just now beginning to be felt. A booming economy largely driven by a strong regional real estate market is now contending with a nascent generation-defining hazard that threatens to leave profound impacts on society. But as the economic centre of the country, Toronto's outlook remains bright. A comforting sight to many, construction continues on new housing and commercial developments, responding to the pent-up demand for homes and office spaces. In these uncertain times, UrbanToronto continues to offer a dynamic range of services that helps you leverage our large and informed audience to reach your market.
UrbanToronto's expansive Database provides valuable information for nearly over 1,500 projects and 4,150 businesses. An exciting branding opportunity and a proven method of generating new leads, Premium Members of UrbanToronto's Company Database are granted an enhanced listing which includes your logo, bio and contact information with a live link to your website. Intertwined with our extensive Project Database, Premium Listings also include active links to your projects and tagging in any relevant editorial and within Project pages. Premium Members are highlighted in our weekly newsletter, showcased in social media posts, and advertised on our Company Database's Premium Membership page.
A number of other available advertising opportunities ensure your company has an appreciable presence on the face of UrbanToronto. Banner advertising and custom editorial are frequently employed by clients who are looking to capitalize on our user base, thousands of whom are directly engaged in the development, architecture, and planning disciplines. Commercial and industrial properties are routinely exhibited on the front page of UrbanToronto as part of our 'Commercial Opportunities' feature, helping clients generate buying and selling interest for properties within the GTA. You can also post career opportunities to the front page of the site, reaching out directly to our sizeable and educated readership.
Our popular Growth to Watch For series, presented by NEEZO Studios throughout 2020, has become an important source of information for those looking to stay on top of the region's dizzying pace of urban growth. The comprehensive series of in-depth reports give you the latest updates and renderings for new developments, from those just entering the planning process to those approaching completion. A total of 21 neighbourhoods are explored in Toronto, with Durham, Halton, Peel and York Region also included in our expansive scope.
UrbanToronto's New Development Insider is another way of keeping abreast of development news. Sent directly to the inbox of subscribers every weekday morning, New Development Insider unlocks the City of Toronto's planning process, wading through the complexities of municipal approvals and provincial tribunals to bring you relevant and informative updates to the high-profile developments shaping the region. Brand new development applications submitted to the City are listed and linked to pages where full supporting materials are available. Unlike the City of Toronto's Application Information Centre, UrbanToronto's New Development Insider lets you know first which applications have been updated with additional materials, including resubmissions of rezoning and Site Plan applications, and includes specific documentation like architectural plans and transportation studies. New Development Insider is designed to track every major building proposal from its initial application to its completion, with public consultations, Design Review Panel sessions, Community Council and Committee meetings, and City Council decisions all falling within the mandate of the newsletter.
