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:
- Connect more people to public transit
- Create vibrant spaces for people
- Provide a range of housing options
- 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.
New Housing Options
The new development will provide 1,467 new residential units with a mix of studio, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom units. There will be both rental and condo options to increase the housing options available for different types of households.
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 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.
3 Acre Site Area
The site is occupied by a storage facility and the potential to offer more uses for the community.
7,847+ ft2 Outdoor Space for Public Access
Create vibrant spaces for people to enjoy the outdoors, especially between the two buildings close to the GO platform.
351 Car & 1,469 Bicycle Parking Spots
Provide car parking and bicycle parking to support various modes of transportation.
1,467 residential units (rental and condo units)
Provide new housing options for a wide range of household sizes and types.
