Aspen Ridge Homes has revealed its plans for the former Celestica Campus site at Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue East, adjacent to the sought-after Leaside neighbourhood. The ambitious project will transform the 60-acre property into a true mixed-use community consisting of 16 residential buildings, 13 blocks of townhomes, over five acres of new parks, a 100,000-square-foot community centre, and 700,000 square feet of office, retail spaces, restaurants and cafes. The first residential phase is known as One Crosstown Condos and is now accepting registrations at


The Crosstown site dates back to the early 1950s, when IBM opened its Canadian headquarters at 844 Don Mills Road before it became the corporate headquarters and manufacturing operations of Celestica, a global electronics manufacturer. Designed by renowned Canadian architect John B. Parkin, the 223,337-square-foot IBM building is included in the City of Toronto’s Heritage Register as an example of mid-century modern architecture and will be incorporated into the condominium’s podium. Rising above the heritage brick building, One Crosstown features two gleaming towers of steel, glass and concrete designed by CORE Architects.


Interiors by Mike Niven Interior Design Inc boast contemporary styling with thoughtfully-designed suites, luxurious common areas and amenities. In addition to a welcoming lobby and 24-hour concierge, residents of One Crosstown Condos will have access to a state-of-the-art fitness centre, party room, games room, yoga studio, dog wash station and an outdoor terrace. A furnished guest suite will also be available for overnight visitors.


Even more amenities and attractions are just minutes away, including the many restaurants, cafes and boutiques that dot the nearby Bayview corridor. A little further north is the Shops at Don Mills, a sprawling shopping complex with a variety of retailers and restaurants like Anthropologie, Cineplex and Panera Bread.


One Crosstown Condos’ location also places it within a stone’s throw of major highways and public transit, making it ideal for commuters. Don Mills Road, Eglinton Avenue East and the DVP are easily accessible from the community. Those who prefer public transit will be steps away from Toronto’s brand new Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit system. Scheduled to open in 2021, the LRT will have 25 stations and stops running east-west across a 19-kilometre stretch of the city. When complete, the LRT will offer easy access to the Yonge and Eglinton transit hub, just five stops away, with connections to the subway.
