Galleria Mall Development

Alongside Abigail Bond from the City's Affordable Housing Secretariat, I participated in the kickoff event for the Galleria redevelopment project on July 30, where we broke ground on the site which will include 150 new affordable housing units. In negotiations on this project, we were also able to secure a number of important community benefits, including a new community centre twice the size of Wallace Emmerson Community Centre, new day care facilities, and a new park.

In July, my office convened the Community Construction Liaison Committee to serve throughout the construction process on Block 5 of the project. This group will work with our office and the developer to mitigate disturbances to the surrounding community, maximize community participation and allow for more community-friendly construction processes.
