At its June 2019 meeting, City Council approved entering into a pre-development agreement with Riverdale Co-operative Houses Inc. ("Riverdale Co-operative") to provide up to $500,000 in section 37 funds to conduct pre-development activities for the purpose of redeveloping Riverdale Co-operative's property located at 685 Queen Street East, adjacent to the 77-79 East Don Roadway and 661-677 Queen Street East site. The intent of the redevelopment is to revitalize the existing nine units and add up to 23 additional, accessible affordable rental units.
New Affordable Rental Housing at 685 Queen Street East
Through the development review process and community consultation, an appropriate built form will be reached, which will ultimately determine the final number of affordable units.
Updates on this project and the community consultation will be posted on this website once they are made available.
