The Proposal

Our updated VISION is to create a new transit-supportive community with thoughtfully designed public space, a mix of residential units, and a new road.

A few GUIDING PRINCIPLES are helping us shape the new community:
  1. Connect more people to public transit
  2. Create vibrant spaces for people
  3. Provide a range of housing options
  4. Increase connectivity

Outdoor Open Space

The public realm would be improved by providing a new outdoor open space (7,847 ft2) for residents, employees, and the public. It would complement the central public park envisioned by the Main Street Planning Study.

Connectivity

Increasing connectivity for existing and future community members, a new east-west road connection along the northern edge of the site would be dedicated for a future public road that would extend Dawes Road along the eastern portion of the site and then north to Danforth Avenue.

 

The Site

The site currently includes a self-storage facility that consists of 14 single-storey, self-storage warehouse buildings and an ancillary office. It also includes the lands along Main Street where the entrance path to the Danforth GO Station building is located.
