The Toronto Community Housing is proposing to work together with the City of Toronto and private development partners, to transform aging housing infrastructure to build better homes and better neighbourhoods.
Location: Leslie Street north of Sheppard Avenue East, a short walk from the TTC’s Leslie subway station
Replaced Rental Units: 121
Market Units: 642
Project Start Date: Construction to begin in 2017
Anticipated Project Length: 2011-2019
Total Size: 7 acres
Amenities: A new community open space feature with playground, indoor amenity rooms for residents, enhanced access to the Don Valley Ravine
Development Plan: The Master Site Plan for Leslie Nymark includes a mix of 764 market and rental townhouses and apartments across the 6.5 acre site. All 121 existing rent-geared-to-income units will be replaced on site.
In addition, proposal is in place to construct an additional 3 to 5 one- and two-bedroom units, to ensure smaller households can continue to live in the community who would otherwise be transferred out due to right sizing, since there are no one- and two-bedroom units in Leslie Nymark. The revitalization will take place over two phases and is targeted for completion by 2020.
Development Partner: Tridel
Architect: (Master Plan) Wallman Architects with Janet Rosenberg & Associates
