Introducing Canary House
The Next Phase of Canary District
If you could reimagine city living, what would it look like, what would be different? With Canary House, we’re rewriting the script. Here, the boundaries of nature and home are redefined, where natural elements are complemented by contemporary design and unparalleled sophisticated finishes. Life at Canary House extends far beyond your suite and the array of hotel-inspired lifestyle amenities will be a part of everyday life. Discover an oasis in the heart of the Downtown East, introducing Canary House.
THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN EAST
Toronto’s next great neighbourhood is already here. Only minutes from the Financial District, St. Lawrence Market, the Distillery District and upcoming East Harbour, Canary District is the perfect place to call home. It is also home to a world class incubator for up-and-coming talent at George Brown College, hidden gems and local independent business. Here you’ll be surrounded by a thriving scene of quaint pizzerias, boutique hotels and refreshing craft breweries, not to mention some of the city’s most captivating greenspaces. Fully established and still on the rise, Canary District is the heart of the Downtown East and has a spirit all its own.
With a bike score of 100, walk score of 95, and a transit score of 100 residents will have no worries getting around the city.
The Evolving East
East Harbour and the Port Lands
It is an exciting time for Toronto’s Downtown East with substantial growth planned, several developments underway and promises of new infrastructure. Canary District is positioned perfectly as an early adopter – in the centre of it all.
The upcoming 60-acre mixed-use development, East Harbour, will create approximately 50,000 jobs and will bring new retail, office and a Transit Hub to the Downtown East only minutes from Canary District. Toronto is poised to become the next big Tech Hub attracting businesses from across the globe and East Harbour will be an ideal location.
In addition, the $1.2 Billion Port Land revitalization will breathe new life into the Toronto Waterfront by introducing a new island, waterways, new parks, roads and bridges. With construction now underway, the Port Lands will soon become an exciting new destination just steps from Canary District.
The Distillery Historic District
The Distillery District invites you into a romantic 13-acre cobblestone world of Victorian architecture and old-world charm. Steps from Canary House, this pedestrian paradise is an open-air, interactive showcase of beautifully preserved heritage buildings. Beyond its original red brick archways, you’ll discover boutiques, galleries, Soul Pepper Theatre and an array of cafés, patios and restaurants. A celebrated destination for locals and international visitors alike, the Distillery District is humming with energy 365 days a year, with countless festivals and activations, like the Toronto Light Festival and the famous Toronto Christmas Market.
Today and Tomorrow
Canary District is quickly becoming one of Toronto’s best-connected neighbourhoods, with multiple new transit lines connecting in the Downtown East.

Inside Canary House
Welcome to Canary House
Canary House artfully blends inspiration from its surroundings. Blurring the boundaries between the outdoors and your home, Canary House complements natural elements like hand-scraped wood with contemporary design featuring subtle, neutral colour palettes. It all comes together to create a sanctuary of calm in the bustling Downtown East.
Canary Historic Building
Built in 1859, the historic building at Front and Cherry Streets has had many faces. First as the Palace Street School, Cherry Street Hotel and the famed Canary Restaurant – but it has always been a cornerstone of the community and a beacon for Toronto’s Downtown East. To preserve its rich heritage, the building will be restored and incorporated into the design of Canary House where it will be re- imaged for future retail use. It now stands revived as the gateway to the neighbourhood, a nod to yesterday and a part of tomorrow.
An Authentic Arrival
Oversized windows open into an animated streetscape and fill the lobby with natural light, welcoming you to Canary House. A large fireplace anchors one end of the extended foyer while natural woods and locally sourced stone frame your path through this natural gathering space. Find your favourite nook among a collection of sumptuous seating and get carried away by the ambiance. This is more than an entrance, it’s an extension of your home.
The Lobby and Coworking Lounge
Wrapped in panoramic views of downtown and boasting a double-height ceiling to maximize natural light, the fitness room is designed to help you find your strength. The dynamic city backdrop motivates you as you push your limits with a wide variety of equipment. Surpass personal goals, then centre yourself as you admire the view. This is where endurance finds inspiration.
The Fitness Room
A wide unobstructed window, filters natural light into every inch of the multi-use studio throughout the day, creating a distinct new atmosphere with each phase of the sun. Here, you’ll find plenty of space, storage and a kitchenette to help push the boundaries of your flexibility in a guided lesson or explore your creativity by using this multi-purpose flex space as an art studio or children’s play area.
The Multi-Purpose Studio
A Place to Play
The entertainment room is your gateway to a fun night out or a great night in, with its dark jewel tones, dramatic lighting, lounge seating and unobstructed views of the city. Gather your friends for a screening in the private movie lounge, cue up for a game of billiards or sing your heart out at karaoke in a space directly inspired by the city’s chicest nightlife destinations.
The Entertainment Room
Find Your Nook
The library takes inspiration from the interplay between light and dark as first introduced in the lobby, and like the lobby this is a perfect place to read, relax and be inspired to create in an elegant space. A ‘take a book, leave a book’ shelf lets you pass along the stories that mean the most while you discover new favourites. Settle into a soft nook to read and quietly converse with new friends over the latest must-read. Soft amber lighting, warm wooden tones and an overall sense of calm complete the inviting picture.
The party room pushes the boundaries of hosting at home with a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of space to gather. A bright, neutral palette coupled with soft fabrics help to create a sophisticated experience, while dark wood and smooth stone features accent this flexible space inspired by the city’s top restaurants. Whether it’s an intimate friends and family gathering or an open-invitation community party, every night here is a celebration.
The Party Room
Dine Above it All
Dinner parties are reimagined behind the intricate wood panelling of the private dining room. Bask in the cozy atmosphere of the fireplace while you prepare a meal with your closest friends and family. As the night winds down, step onto the private terrace and into the evening air – or start here with an intimate BBQ. Whether you’re inside or out, allow the sweeping city skyline to be your backdrop.
The Private Dining Room
A Floating Green Escape
Immerse yourself in nature as you stroll through the garden. This patio in the sky wraps itself around three sides of the building, offering unmatched views of Toronto’s majestic skyline while guiding you to a welcoming fire pit. The garden has a number of different areas to explore, each with its own energy. Entertain al fresco and dine under the stars or discover your own patch of paradise in a more private alcove. Let the pergola frame an unforgettable evening.
Your kitchen combines natural wood finishes and textures, with seamlessly integrated appliances to create a contemporary gathering space that’s as inviting as it is functional. The kitchen will be your backdrop to preparing delicious meals and hosting memorable evenings with friends.
Your bathroom is your own personal oasis. Find yourself each morning, surrounded by a natural stone texture, layered lighting and a variety of distinct features, including an LED mirror and rain shower head, that come together to create an aura of serenity.
Canary House has a total of 206 suites with suites starting from 461 sq.ft.
