Summary

Creating affordable housing opportunities for Toronto residents contributes to economic prosperity, job creation and meeting the City's equity objectives. Providing access to safe, secure, affordable housing in all parts of Toronto is a fundamental goal of the City's 10-year Housing Opportunities Action Plan 2010-2020.

 

Following the announcement of the 'Open Door' initiative on April 24, 2015 by the Mayor and the City's Housing Advocate, the City's Affordable Housing Office issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the City's surplus site at 200 Madison on May 29, 2015. The objective was to select the best possible proponent to build and operate high-quality, purpose-built affordable rental housing, while offering the best value for money.

 

This report outlines the Request for Proposals results and recommends Council approval of Madison View Homes Inc. as the successful proponent. The report also recommends that authority be granted to City staff to enter into the necessary agreements to fund and secure the construction and operation of the affordable rental housing at 200 Madison Avenue.
