As we announced with great excitement earlier this month, the City of Toronto will be building supportive housing in Parkdale, at 150 Dunn Avenue, on the University Health Network (UHN) site. The new building will provide warm, safe homes with supports for approximately 51 people, including women, Indigenous residents, racialized people, people with disabilities and other people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
The new homes will be studio apartments each with a kitchen and a bathroom, using modular building construction
Thank you to the many community members who have attending virtual meetings to learn more about the proposal and how the community can support your new neighbours.
The next step in this process is a Staff Report to the June 28th Planning and Housing Committee which will request that City Council endorse, in principle, amending the zoning regulations for 150 Dunn Avenue to permit the construction of modular housing proposal by way of a Minister’s Zoning Order. PH25.13 Rapid Housing Initiative – 150 Dunn Avenue (Part of a Larger Parcel of Land Including 74, 82, 130, 160, and 162 Dunn Avenue, 1-17 Close Avenue, and 74 and 78 Springhurst Avenue) . The Report is available for your review at http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2021.PH25.13 .
If you wish to register to speak to this item at Planning and Housing Committee, or submit written comment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Registered speakers will be provided with instructions on connecting to the meeting.
