Alcona—Innisfil’s primary settlement area—is an emerging downtown poised to be a thriving financial, innovation and cultural center within the Town of Innisfil.

The Town’s significant investment in new pedestrian and bike-friendly treatment is helping to transform the road into an attractive commercial boulevard that will become the heart of Innisfil. New sidewalks, street trees, lighting and bike lanes are a part of that streetscape improvement.

Demand for commercial retail and office space is strong within this bustling community. Our official plan allows up to 8 stories of mixed-use residential, institutional and commercial development. Alcona is ready for development today, and by working with our Economic Development team, you’ll be given one point of contact to help expedite the process.
