Interesting innovations, new developments and profiles of our people–you’ll find it all in our blog.
Scheduled to open by the end of the year, the highly anticipated Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension Project will expand TTC service from Sheppard West (formerly Downsview) to the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre. The 8.6 kilometre expansion will add six new subway stations and will be the first TTC rapid transit line to cross the City of Toronto boundary. Combined with the planned Finch West Light Rail Transit (LRT) System by Metrolinx, the next few years will be marked by a public transit renaissance north of the 401.
At the centre of all the development is the area surrounding the new Finch West Station now under construction at Keele Street and Finch Avenue West. When complete, the station will serve as a stop along the TTC subway as well as the first stop on the Finch West LRT when it enters service in 2021. The subway and LRT lines will significantly improve access and add transportation options for residents in the area, while simultaneously producing new city building opportunities.
What does it take to ride in a Granfondo? A lot of sweat, and maybe a few tears. What does it take to ride in a Granfondo AND raise money for North America’s first fully digital hospital in the heart of Toronto? Every member of Team Revolution will tell you – blood, sweat and tears.
Since its inception in 2012, our team has raised an incredible $1.7 million for the new Humber River Hospital, the first fully digital hospital in North America, which opened on October 18, 2015.
Until our next big ride, our team is training hard, participating in rides across the globe and right here at home, proving that being part of Team Revolution is more than being a part of a cycling team – it’s a part of who we are. Next year, we have our sights set on Granfondo Verona in September, 2018, which includes the infamous Monte Grappa climb.

- CHANGE OF VIEW SIX25BV is transforming Bayview Village as we know it. It’s a rejuvenation of architecture and design that will forever change the landscape of the area, while connecting residents to a neighbourhood that embraces the extraordinary.
- The idea behind Bayview Village began in 1954, when a group of developers set out with a mission to create contemporary living in the countryside, at the doorstep of Metropolitan Toronto. Their ambitious design concept began with building ﬂuid street patterns inspired by the organic contours of the land. This naturalist approach highlighted the overall beauty of the neighbourhood, ensuring this growing urban neighbourhood maintained a countryside appeal. A LOOK BACK AT BAYVIEW. A LOOK FORWARD AT WHAT’S IN VIEW.

It’s an idea that has crossed the minds of virtually everyone who has worked for somebody else, regardless of the job.
As you put in time and labour that ultimately benefits someone else’s business, it dawns on you: Why can’t I just set up shop and do this myself? Why can’t I be the one taking home the big money after all the bills are paid and enjoying the independence of running my own show?
They’re great questions, but the answers aren’t for everybody.
Actually making the decision to give up the security of a steady job, and the regular paycheque and benefits that come along with it, takes a lot of guts and perseverance — especially in today’s highly competitive economy.
University Heights, being built 200m from the corner of Finch Ave W. and Keele St. is being constructed with professional and medical occupancy in mind for this uniquely specialized building project.

The contemporary and distinguished design of University Heights is playing into the revitalization of the Finch West neighborhood.
