Council supported my motion to support the development of new affordable housing at 1117 Danforth Avenue.
I was pleased that Council supported my motion to support the development of new affordable housing at 1117 Danforth Avenue, currently a supportive housing facility operated by Houselink/Mainstay.
The property is aging and requires accessibility upgrades. An applicant on the adjacent site has indicated a willingness to partner with Houselink/Mainstay, using the model piloted here in Ward 14 with the Riverdale Co-op, to create new affordable housing and revitalize the existing units. This is a tremendous opportunity to create 72 new supportive, rent-geared-to-income, affordable and market rent units.
Thank you to all those who wrote in support of this important project.
