Housing Now Plan – Toronto

Housing Now Plan for Housing on Public Land by Toronto City Council

The plan calls for new building on 11 City-owned properties.

 

Market non-rental         2928

Market rental                 3630

Affordable (RGI)           3629

Total                               10,187

Here is a map (better online) to give some perspective. //housingnowto.com/ .

The plan calls for a mix of private and non-profit building. However, the ratio is not defined and the criteria are still being developed.

 

How much land do you think should be deeply affordable? ACORN is calling for 50%. The experience in New York is that they can bargain with developers to create affordable housing in the long term because the land is so valuable. Do you think Toronto land (

nd condo potential) is enough that developers will commit to real affordable housing?

 

Stay tuned. This plan is new so you can help shape it:
