A pair of new roadways in Delta will be named after members of the Toigo family.
Council last week endorsed a staff recommendation to formally name a road and a lane at the new casino and hotel complex after Peter C. Toigo and Elizabeth Toigo.
Located south of 60 Avenue, west of Highway 17A, north of Highway 99 and east of River Road, a new road to be named PC Toigo Way is the main access road to the hotel entertainment complex. It would also provide access to a proposed 153-unit apartment and townhouse residential development that was given third reading by council in the summer of 2022. The application is still waiting for final approvals.
To be named Elizabeth Way, the lane is located at the north end of the residential development site and would provide right-in/right-out access to Highway 17A during off-peak hours and 24-hour access for emergency services to access the fire lane and the parking garage entrances.
Peter C Toigo. was an entrepreneur and successful businessman who established Shato Holdings, a real estate development company, in 1969.
Shato Holdings owns and manages the White Spot Restaurant chain along with other commercial interests and real estate properties, which includes the former Delta Town & Country Inn site where the Cascades Casino is now located.
Elizabeth Toigo became the chairperson of Shato Holdings after Peter’s passing in 1993. She passed away in September 2021.
“Their legacy includes philanthropy and major donations to organizations around Metro Vancouver and Delta, including the Delta Hospital Foundation. The Peter C. and Elizabeth Toigo Diagnostic Services Building at the Delta Hospital opened in March 2020 which expanded medical imaging and laboratory services for the community,” a report to council adds.
Their family including son Ron Toigo continues to own the company and site, having given a long-term lease to Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Ltd.
