Therme Group to develop $280.4m Therme Canada | Ontario Place in Canada


Wellbeing organisation Therme Group has been selected by the Government of Ontario to develop a more than $280.4m (C$350m) wellbeing resort at Ontario Place in Toronto, Canada.

Ontario Place includes 155-acres of waterfront property in Toronto and will be a venue for activities, live music, festivals and events. Previously, it served as an iconic cultural and tourism destination between 1971 and 2012.

The new development, named Therme Canada | Ontario Place, will feature indoor and outdoor pools, waterslides, a wave pool, sports performance, recovery services, natural spaces to relax and botanical gardens.

It will also include fun and healthy activities for all ages, as well as affordable wellness therapies to meet all needs.

The new development will include public beach and enhanced pedestrian and cycling access. It will also create over eight acres of public spaces.

Therme Group CEO Robert Hanea said: “Therme is a unique, all-season experience: It's a natural urban oasis where people can have fun, relax and unwind from their busy lives – boosting their physical and mental health.

“The future of Ontario Place will be defined by how successful it can be connecting people to the water.

Through our technology and by engaging the community, Therme and our partners will add a new architectural landmark that will play a role in bringing more people back to the waterfront capturing the original spirit of Ontario Place from 50 years ago.”

The company noted that project will increase internal floor area to enable three million visitors per year, while retaining eight planned acres of public parks, beaches and trails on the surrounding land.
