Current Status:

On June 17th, following a presentation by Staff, Council approved the Town project team to execute the Definitive Documents with Streetcar & Dream (Grain Terminals Revitalization Inc.). The execution of the Definitive Documents is a required next step for the continued evolution of the Terminals Point Project and in achieving the goals that were previously established at the outset of this procurement. The Definitive Documents provide the legal framework for all aspects of the collaboration and are based on the previously executed Memorandum of Understanding.

Next Step:

A Due Diligence period will follow execution of the agreements where both parties will undertake further investigative and design work prior to closing. Additionally, the next step in the process will include active community education, engagement, and consultation which will help inform the design and establish a final concept for the lands. Stay tuned to Engage and the Town’s social media channels for information on upcoming events.

Highlights: Streetcar & Dream proposed vision

The final decision for the design of the Terminals and public areas will be highly informed by community input. However, Streetcar & Dream’s proposed vision includes the following highlights (refer to Concept Photos):

  1. Redeveloping Heritage Drive into four distinct areas that link together.
  2. Preserving and revitalizing the Terminals into a full-service hotel with restaurants and event spaces.
  3. Adding a residential condominium to the east of the Terminals.
  4. Creating public access to the top “bin floor” for views of Georgian Bay and downtown Collingwood.
  5. Enhancing the community’s access to the shoreline and water, creating new trails and walkways, lookouts and boardwalks.
  6. Creating space for shops.
  7. Transforming the Collingwood Harbour marine area.

About the project

The Collingwood Grain Terminals have a long history in our community. They are highly prominent and iconic. They have been unused since 1993, and for years, many have been wondering about their future.

Since 2019, Town Council has been taking action to consider the options to revitalize the Terminals. The costs for the Town to revitalize the Terminals are more than taxpayers can afford. As such, Council approved entering into a private-sector partnership, which opens the door for the Town to do more for the community. It achieve three critical goals:

  1. It ensures the Town maintains ownership of the majority of the lands.
  2. It gives the Town authority to set expectations and hold private partners to account.
  3. It brings greater value for taxpayers’ dollars because it leverages private investment to upgrade and enhance public spaces and meet community needs.

Based on community input, Council approved a set of 16 Guiding Principles to form the basis of a partnership. In 2021, Town staff went to tender to find a potential partner to work with the Town on the revitalization project.

In August 2022, Streetcar and Dream was chosen as the successful company for this partnership because their proposed vision has the greatest alignment with the Guiding Principles.

    The approval of this staff report represents the crucial next step in bringing to life the Terminal Points Project as set out in the engagement plans and priorities established by Council and the community during the initial planning phases. The Definitive Documents, as they are known, provide the legal framework for all aspects of the collaboration between the Town and Streetcar & Dream, (Grain Terminals Revitalization Inc.). These agreements are based on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and are the product of a thoroughly collaborative process.

    Pending Council approval to proceed with the execution of the Definitive Documents, we are ready to proceed with the next phases of the project. This will include due diligence in planning and engineering, extensive detailed design refinements, and multiple phases of community outreach, engagement and consultation.

    The Public has spoken! With over 1500 survey responses the new project name, ‘Terminals Point’, will replace the lengthy former name, “The Collingwood Grain Terminals Revitalization Project.”

    The project is getting a new name to highlight that this is not just the revitalization of the Grain Terminals but the reimagination and invigoration of the Spit as a whole, introducing new and exciting public spaces while enhancing the existing amenities. This rebranding also highlights the partnership between the Town and Streetcar & Dream, while respecting community values.

    Terminals Point seamlessly aligns with the well-established nomenclature of Lighthouse Point and Sunset Point Beach along Collingwood's shoreline. This name fuses historical importance, the iconic Terminals building, and the stunning scenery of Georgian Bay. It encapsulates the essence of Collingwood, offering a window into its history while embracing a promising future. By designating this area as a Point, where land and water converge, it becomes a community and cultural focal point, and a destination that beckons all to explore and enjoy the unique blend of heritage, innovation, and natural beauty that Collingwood proudly offers.


    One of Council and Staff’s paramount goals is to foster active community engagement throughout every phase of this extensive journey.

    'The Collingwood Grain Terminals Revitalization Project' is getting a new name to highlight that this is not just the revitalization of the Grain Terminals but the reimagination and invigoration of the 'Spit' as a whole, introducing new and exciting public spaces while enhancing the existing amenities. This rebranding also highlights the partnership between the Town and Streetcar & Dream while respecting community values.

    One of Council and Staff’s paramount goals is to foster active community engagement throughout every phase of this extensive journey.

    “We recognize that the Collingwood Grain Terminals and Spit are integral parts of the community’s identity,” says Amanda Pegg, Executive Director, Customer & Corporate Services. “The team is dedicated to involving residents, businesses, and stakeholders in the decision-making process. It is important that all voices be heard and considered in shaping the future of this cherished area, ensuring that it continues to be a source of pride and connection for all.”

    Residents can cast their vote on one of the following 4 shortlisted options:

    • The Portlands - ‘The Portlands’ connects past to present and fostering a sense of pride among residents and visitors alike. With stunning waterfront views, a serene atmosphere, and endless recreational opportunities, the area along Heritage Drive is a natural gathering place. Naming it ‘The Portlands’ highlights its potential as a vibrant community space where people can relax, gather, and bask in the breathtaking scenery of Georgian Bay, without specifically highlighting only one element found here. ‘The Portlands’ name encapsulates the idea that this is a place where both history and the future come together to offer a unique and enriching experience for everyone.
    • Terminals Point - ‘Terminals Point’ seamlessly aligns with the well-established nomenclature of Lighthouse Point and Sunset Point Beach along Collingwood's shoreline. This name fuses historical importance, the iconic Terminals building, and the stunning scenery of Georgian Bay. It encapsulates the essence of Collingwood, offering a window into its history while embracing a promising future. By designating this area as a Point, where land and water converge, it becomes a community and cultural focal point, and a destination that beckons all to explore and enjoy the unique blend of heritage, innovation, and natural beauty that Collingwood proudly offers.
    • The Harbourlands - Since 2000, 'Harbourlands' has become a cherished term in Collingwood. Harbourlands Park, situated along Heritage Drive, was conceived as a haven for leisure, offering breathtaking views of Georgian Bay and Collingwood's iconic skyline. Expanding 'The Harbourlands' to encompass the entirety of Heritage Drive is a way to honour the name's established legacy over the past 23 years, signifying our commitment to celebrate its rich history while eagerly anticipating an exciting future.
    • The Spit - For decades, this area of Collingwood has been affectionately referred to by Collingwood residents as ‘The Spit’. A spit is a narrow coastal land formation that is tied to a coast at one end. As Heritage Drive moves into a new era of development and innovation, we have the opportunity to design ‘The Spit’ in a way that beautifully represents the heritage, legacy, and future of Collingwood and its vibrant community. ‘The Spit’ will serve as a symbol of the town's rich history and the enduring spirit that pushes us into an exciting future.

    • The Town’s financial commitment to the project is based on the amounts included in the Town’s Ten-Year Capital Plan. The Present Value of the costs to the Town (discounted at 5% to 2022 dollars - at time of proposal submission) is $15,055,777.
    • The MOU highlights the significant value that the public engagement and consultation process has on the overall project vision for the public areas. The MOU ensures commitment from both the Town and the proponent to ensure a robust and meaningful process. Both the Town and the proponent will lead components of this engagement. The Town will have leadership over the public space engagements.

    Collingwood, ON [27 March 2023] – At the Council meeting on Monday, March 27, 2023, the public got their first look at the proposed vision for the revitalization of the iconic Grain Terminals.

    Rendering of proposed Grain Terminals redesign by Streetcar & Dream


    Streetcar Developments Inc and Dream Unlimited Corp (Streetcar and Dream) presented their vision for the Terminals and surrounding lands on Heritage Drive, Millennium Park, and the spit. Town staff also provided an overview of the comprehensive public engagement and consultation process, scheduled to commence this summer.

    Some highlights from the proposal include the re-development of Heritage Drive with significant public realm enhancements and access, preservation and adaptive reuse of the Terminals including a full-service hotel, restaurant and event space, and a residential component to the east of the Terminals. The concept public realm enhancements activate the harbourfront year-round and include access to the shoreline/ water, trails, lookouts and boardwalks, public space for retail and most notably, the proposal introduces public access to the Terminal building itself in ways that were not previously possible. The current “bin floor” atop the Terminals is envisioned as a publicly accessible feature with sweeping views of Georgian Bay and the Town, including historic downtown Collingwood. The proposed design concept incorporates leading green technologies and aligns with the Town’s commitment to sustainability, while honouring the built heritage of the site.

    “We are excited to partner with the Town of Collingwood to implement a visionary plan for the Spit and to stabilize the iconic Terminal building so it can remain a Collingwood landmark for decades to come,” said Les Mallins, President of Streetcar Developments.

    “Our team's involvement extends well beyond the development and construction of this project. With our hotel, we become a fully aligned operating partner with the Town in perpetuity, ensuring the Spit remains an all-season attraction for the community and visitors alike. We look forward working with the community to bring this important landmark back to life.”

    "Our community has waited decades to see a vision for the future of the Grain Terminals," said Mayor of Collingwood, Yvonne Hamlin. "The possibilities presented today provide a clear path to a transformative repurposing of the terminals for public and private uses. This proposal will revitalize the entire spit with improved access for boaters, cyclists, swimmers and anyone who wants to enjoy a day at the waterfront. I look forward to working with the community, Streetcar and Dream as this project moves ahead".

    The recording of the presentation and Council meeting is available on the Town’s YouTube Channel.

    The next step in this historical re-development is the finalization of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). Public engagement will ensue, scheduled to begin in summer 2023.

    Following an extensive procurement process, Streetcar Developments Inc. & Dream Unlimited Corp. has been recommended as the successful proponent to be considered to move forward with their proposal to revitalize the Collingwood Grain Terminals.

    The submitted proposal outlined a commitment to developing their vision within the guiding principles established by the Town along with an extensive community engagement process. Some of these principles include structural preservation of the terminals, optimized public access to the spit and to energize and animate Heritage Drive.

    Following the closing of the RFP, Town staff completed a compliance review with the independent Fairness Monitor, followed by technical evaluation, and a closed session presentation with the evaluation committee which was observed by Council.

    “The Collingwood Grain Terminals Revitalization Project is such a significant undertaking, likely one of the most impactful that Collingwood has seen since the Terminals were erected in 1929. Months of planning, reviews, public engagement, and evaluation to ensure the desires of the community are met for the Terminals’ future and the future of the Collingwood Waterfront,” says Sonya Skinner, Town of Collingwood Chief Administrative Officer.

    “Our proposal enables public access to the Spit, the Bay and the Terminal Building itself in ways that would not have been previously possible. The Terminal building is not just being preserved, its being infused with new life becoming a cultural, recreational, and economic community asset and a beacon for sustainability for the Town of Collingwood,” states Les Mallins, president of Streetcar Developments Inc.

    The proponent summarizes their proposal as follows:

    The Collingwood Grain Terminals Revitalization Project presents a remarkable opportunity to demonstrate how a public-private partnership can create a dynamic, high-quality year-round destination that will thoughtfully re-adapt and honour Collingwood’s beloved landmark. Our proposal includes the following highlights:

    • Preservation and adaptive reuse of the Terminals through the creation of a full-service and authentic boutique hotel, including restaurants and events spaces, that highlight the heritage attributes of the building and provide public access to the entire Terminal building.
    • Public realm enhancements throughout the Spit, including new connections to the water, a reimagined Millennium Park, new trails and walkways, and a renewed focus on recreational and cultural activities for year-round public enjoyment.
    • New marina building and facilities [In Collaboration with the Town of Collingwood and pending consultation and future Council direction], which will address the needs of the existing key stakeholders on the Spit and will transform the Collingwood Harbour into a marine destination unmatched on Georgian Bay and beyond.

    Council will provide direction on next steps during the Council meeting to be held Thursday, August 18th. If Council awards the project to the recommended proponent, the bidder and staff will develop a Memorandum of Understanding outlining the various terms and conditions of the arrangement. The public consultation strategy developed by the proponent would commence shortly thereafter.
