Downtown has an endless supply of excitement, energy and opportunity. The one thing hard to find? Space to grow.
There are only so many corners with “untapped potential” in the core — only so many chances at new inventory and investing early. With Toronto as the fastest growing city in North America, estimated to nearly double its population by 2041, it’s a race to increase density in the core.
The Church Street corridor, long recognized as an underdeveloped stretch, has been snapped up in recent years; now one of the last key intersections, Church and Dundas, is having its coming-of-age moment.
That’s where Two Fifty Two Church lands — 100% downtown and developed by CentreCourt, a leading builder in Toronto’s core. One of the last pieces of the puzzle in the neighbourhood, Two Fifty Two Church will be the first launch of 2022.
The downtown lifestyle is unparalleled for residents: centres of commerce, technology, culture, arts, entertainment, education, institutions, health, hospitality, and shopping are all within walking distance. Two minutes to Ryerson University, four minutes to the iconic Yonge-Dundas Square and Dundas Station, four to the Eaton Centre — here, “at your doorstep” is not an exaggeration.
And the downtown ROI is unquestionable for investors: Toronto is the second-largest financial centre on the continent, ranked fourth for global fintech capitals of the future, and is projected to add 316,000 jobs to the core within two decades. Just this year, Toronto ranked first for tech job growth in North America. Bustling student populations drawn to four local campuses — all within 10 minutes on foot or bike — keep rental demand sky-high.

The first launch of the New Year locks into Toronto’s future with what will one day be relegated to the past: exciting new builds right in the downtown core.
The Builder, The Building
In just 19 months, CentreCourt has launched five projects in the GTA, collectively representing over 2,600 suites, making it one of the most active and fastest-growing builders in the region.
Operating for more than a decade and currently managing eight sites under construction, CentreCourt has a stellar track record of zero cancelled projects and zero days of interim occupancy. Straight to final closing, no ongoing construction, amenities ready-to-use — it’s an impressive feat with so much building activity across the region.
CentreCourt knows downtown. Site selection is held to the highest standard of transit and employment access, as well as culture and convenience amenities to complete the work-live-play lifestyle — the very reason urban centres are always in high demand.

Inside the building is as exciting as outside: Two Fifty Two Church amenities total 18,000 square feet and include lounge areas, terraces and barbecues, screening and entertainment rooms, kitchen and dining spaces, co-working spaces, gaming and sports, a dog run, and a premier fitness club.
Residents will love the efficient and well laid out suites ranging from 300 – 720 square feet, all specifically curated for their downtown lifestyle.
And at street level, the impression is immediately striking. A historic building preserved on the corner nods at the neighbourhood’s past while the 52-storey tower above soars in dramatic black-and-white detailing — a skyline statement by IBI Group, the global architecture firm with roots in Toronto. Polished, dramatic and memorable, Two Fifty Two Church brings elegance and energy to Church & Dundas.
Unforgettable and Unparalleled
Pick up a brochure for any major build in the GTA and there are timed estimates to highways, transit stations and the city’s core — “minutes to downtown” is a marketing staple. But Two Fifty Two Church is already there.
With thriving technology, financial, education and health industries, employment opportunities are endless. With the arrival of the future Ontario Line, connectivity across the region is expanded even further — is it even possible to improve a Transit Score of 100? Concerts, theatres, sports, clubs: a downtown address is a ticket to an unforgettable lifestyle, or an unparalleled investment.
