Woodbine to partner with property group on possible entertainment venue


ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Woodbine Entertainment Group and the property development company Trinity Development Group have agreed to explore a partnership that will look at developing a 165,000-square-foot entertainment venue at Woodbine, which would seat up to 5,000. 

WEG and Trinity will seek a third-party group to operate and manage the venue, which would not be part of an Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation modernization plan for Woodbine.

“This is an exciting day for Woodbine Entertainment Group and the city of Toronto,” said Jim Lawson, WEG’s chief executive officer. “To partner with a trusted, well-respected property development company like Trinity allows the citizens of Toronto, and frankly the entire province, to start to see the possibilities of what we can develop on one of the most attractive pieces of real estate in the (greater Toronto area).”
