Starting in mid-February, initial site work will begin including installing temporary fencing, tree protection, and the delivery of construction equipment. Construction is expected to take approximately five months.

The City of Toronto is building supportive housing at 150 Dunn Avenue using modular construction. The new four‑storey building will provide homes for approximately 51 people with on-site services that support health and well-being. The new homes will be furnished studio apartments with a bathroom and kitchen. Future residents will include seniors, women, Indigenous residents, racialized people, people with disabilities and other people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. The building will include amenities such as shared laundry, a commercial kitchen, a dining area, a communal area and programming space.

An experienced non-profit housing operator will be selected by the City to manage the building and provide support services to the residents.

This project is delivered in partnership with all levels of government, the University Health Network (UHN) Gattuso Centre for Social Medicine and the United Way of Greater Toronto (UWGT).
