44 Broadway is the result of an exciting parternship between the Catholic community, represented by the Archdiocese of Toronto and St. Monica’s Roman Catholic Church, and two of Toronto’s most respected names in development, KPMB Architects and Collecdev Inc.
With an eye to the future, St. Monica’s Parish and the Archdiocese of Toronto set out to pursue the redevelopment of the church in a manner that would provide a new home for the parish and ensure continued service to the community for generations to come. After an intensive RFP (Request for Proposal), KPMB and Collecdev were selected as the project architect and developer, thanks to their demonstrated capacity and dedication to work collaboratively with the church, the community, and city staff on a truly unique site.
St. Monica’s Roman Catholic Church has been a beacon of diversity, inclusion, and faith for over a century, and the redevelopment plans at 44 Broadway will ensure that the site continues to act as a cornerstone for the Yonge & Eglinton community. The proposed design integrates a strong civic presence with a contemporary expression of faith and a 44-storey residential tower that will contribute to the growing demand for housing in one of the city’s largest growth nodes. Together, we will create a place that not only preserves and integrates the spirit of St. Monica’s, but reinterprets the notion of community for the modern age.
