New Community Space through 362 Wallace Development

362_Wallace_Community_Centre.JPGWhen negotiating with the developer at 362 Wallace Avenue, I knew that community space was a major priority for the area. For this reason, I succeeded in bringing a brand new 7,000 ft2 community building to our community as part of this development application.

This will be a city-owned building and a Request for Proposals was put out for youth and family services to operate at this location. With the growing number of children and families moving to the area, I felt it was very important to secure these community benefits which will be a tremendous impact on the surrounding community.

The Christie-Ossington Neighbourhood Centre was selected by the City as the building operators with Greenhere coming in as a tenant as well.

This will also be a great addition to the West Toronto Railpath, which has an entrance nearby. As I continue to work on the final design of this new space, I look forward to working with local organizations to activate this public space and maximize the exciting potential of this new community hub.
