The Parkdale Hub is in the very early stages. The goal of the hub is to build the City’s capacity to think and plan in a more coordinated and effective manner.
There are multiple City assets at the Queen Street West/Cowan Avenue intersection, including Parkdale Public Library, Masaryk-Cowan Recreation Centre, a Toronto Parking Authority lot and a below market rent facility operated by Artscape.
All of the buildings require significant state of good repair investments over the next 10 years. An inter-divisional agency table, including City divisions and agencies, has been formed to begin coordinating the inventory.
Community engagement began in 2018 and will continue into 2019.
