What we are working on for 2017

Drovers Lane - Toronto Ontario

Cabbagetown South Safe Laneways Project

The idea is to see if there are ways we can change the design and function of our laneways to help deter unwanted behaviour. We need to take back our laneways by creating spaces that are attractive and safe for area residents to walk, ride bicycles, park their vehicles, play with their kids, exercise their dogs etc..

The applicant is requesting an amendment to the current by-law to permit an eight storey mid-rise building, fronting onto the south side of Gerrard Street East, and stepping down to the south containing 99 residential units and approximately 715 square meters of retail space.
