W ith residents moving into new buildings and shovels in the ground across the community, the revitalization of Regent Park led by Toronto Community Housing is full steam ahead!
At its October 24 meeting, the Board of Directors of Toronto Community Housing approved a plan to move ahead with Phase 3 of the revitalization. The Daniels Corporation will continue as developer partner and construction manager for Phase 3.
This follows on the opening of Toronto Community Housing’s newest rental building at 230 Sackville in September. As part of Phase 2 of Regent Park revitalization, 230 Sackville is designed and built to meet LEED Gold standards and promote environmental sustainability. The 10-storey building has 105 rent-geared-to-income and 50 affordable rental apartments.
Toronto Community Housing continues to meet with the community to update residents about ongoing and future revitalization work. More than 350 neighbours came to a recent meeting held at Daniels Spectrum to discuss the relocation and demolition process in Phase 3 and an application to the City Council for the rezoning of Phases 3, 4 and 5.
