Bloor Dufferin Development

As you know, the Toronto District School Board sold the lands they owned at Bloor Street West and Dufferin Street to a developer. Since then I have worked with residents, community groups, City staff, the TDSB and the developer to secure all that we could for the community. The proposal includes 7 buildings with 2,162 units, an affordable housing building, a 30,000 sq. ft. community hub including a child care centre, a 38,000 sq ft. public park, a public plaza, new retail opportunities and the creation of a $17 million not for profit land trust which will see 50% of these funds spent in Davenport in support of community initiatives. The development application was approved in late 2019 and is now advancing through the final stages of the planning and building permitting process. I have been working over the summer to expedite the public benefit components of the project including the affordable housing building. I want to thank all residents that participated in the community consultations and the work of Build a Better Bloor Dufferin, Habitat for Humanity and St. Clares Multifaith.
