The June 29th community meeting has been postponed while the City conducts further technical work on site related to this proposal. The community will be notified when the meeting has been rescheduled. Additionally, the July report to City Council will be moved to early fall. Learn more about these changes.

There are approximately 7,800 people experiencing homelessness in Toronto. New homes with supports are urgently needed to ensure everyone has a warm, safe place to call home. To respond to this urgent need, the City of Toronto is building modular housing at 75 Tandridge Crescent. The new five-storey building will provide homes for approximately 113 people and support their health and well-being.

The new homes will be:

  • Dedicated to women, Indigenous residents, Black and racialized people, seniors, people with disabilities and other people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness
  • Studio apartments with a bathroom and a kitchen

The building will include shared laundry, a commercial kitchen, a dining area, a communal area, and a programming space. City staff will be exploring options for relocating the basketball court and playground on the property. The new location and design for the basketball court and playground will be determined in consultation with the community.

Read the staff report considered by the Planning and Housing Committee on May 20 and City Council on June 8.

Project Update (June 14, 2021): The second community meeting which was scheduled for June 29 at 7 p.m. has been postponed while the City conducts further technical work on site related to this proposal. The community will be notified once the meeting has been rescheduled. The report to Council which was originally scheduled for July will be moved to early Fall, as directed by Council.

 

Why the second engagement meeting is postponed

The second meeting is postponed while staff continue their review of the site plan application and conduct additional work.

As part of the review of the site plan application, design and technical elements are reviewed by a number of relevant City divisions such as Toronto Water, Transportation Services and Toronto Fire etc.; and other agencies or partners such as Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, TTC and Enbridge, etc. The City has postponed the second community meeting while it works through the feedback and comments on the site plan application.  In particular, additional time is required to conduct technical work related to this area being in an identified flood plain.

Many homes and communities already exist in floodplains (view a map of locations) however planning for new development in these areas can be more complex as additional work can be required.

What is supportive housing (or housing with support services)

Housing with supports is a combination of deeply affordable housing and on-site supports that enable people to live as independently as possible. Supportive housing can help people stabilize their lives, help them stay housed and positively contribute to communities.

What happens to the basketball court and the playground

City staff will be exploring options for relocating the basketball court and playground on the property. The new location and design for the basketball court and playground will be determined in consultation with the community.
