Origin

(January 3, 2018) Report from the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration

Summary

Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) has embarked on a two-phase plan for the revitalization of its Allenbury Gardens community. TCHC is halfway through the revitalization that will replace 127 existing Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) units and develop approximately 900 market units. Phase 2 includes 97 of the replacement RGI units, comprised of 28 townhouse units and 69 apartment units, as well as close to 500 market units. TCHC will use the proceeds from the sale of land and market-priced units during the revitalization to help cover the cost of replacement social housing units.

 

As part of the Phase 2 revitalization, on October 31, 2017, TCHC submitted a request to Shelter, Support and Housing Administration (SSHA) for consent to transfer lands in connection with the redevelopment. TCHC is proposing that lands identified as Part 1 and Part 2 on Plan 66R-29296 be transferred to Vivo Residences Inc. in order to obtain third party construction financing to commence demolition of the existing buildings and construction of the rental and market housing. The request has no financial implications to the City.

 

This report recommends that City Council as Service Manager grant consent for the transfer of selected TCHC properties to Vivo Residences Inc. as part of Phase 2 of the Council-approved Allenbury Gardens Revitalization and authorize the General Manager, SSHA, as Service Manager to provide the necessary consents for future transfers associated with the Allenbury Gardens Revitalization.
