City of Toronto has almost completed 56 studio units of modular housing that will provide supports from the Neighbourhood Group and COTA Health.
Modular construction means the new structures are built in a factory setting, then transported to Toronto for final assembly. On-site work began at Macey Ave. in October. The city is already planning for further modular construction projects, touting plans for a second phase sometime in 2021 that will add another 150 units at one or more not-yet-specified sites in Toronto. …
The full capital cost for the Macey and Harrison sites was identified as $20.9 million in late October. On Saturday, the city said the capital cost for all 250 planned units would be $47.5 million. [CBC December 20, 2020]
[So it was possible. Modular housing + political will + investment can overcome alleged cost contrainsts and NIMBY communities.]
