Greenwood Raceway

The Beaches might be getting a huge new concert venue

The Beaches isn't exactly known for its thriving nightlife. But that could all change soon. The Champions Greenwood offtrack betting outlet at 1661 Queen St. E., might be transformed into a live entertainment venue.

There's currently a development application sitting with the city and it's aiming to make some minor adjustments to the existing space in order to turn it into a venue with a 2,700-person capacity.

As Good Hood reports, music giant Live Nation might be behind this proposal, meaning the incoming venue would probably get some big ticket acts.

Toronto also needs more mid-size concert halls, so if this plan goes through, it would definitely fill a void in the city.
