Danforth Garage Master Planning Study – Community Meeting #2

October 19, 2019 in Community Engagement

CreateTO & the City of Toronto will be hosting the second community meeting for the Danforth Garage Master Planning Study on Tuesday, October 30 from 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm in the cafeteria at Monarch Park Collegiate Institute, 1 Hanson Street.

The Danforth Garage is a 5.05-acred site situated in Ward 32, which brings together civic and community interests from wards 29, 30 and 31. The site currently accommodates the Danforth – Coxwell Public Library at 1625 Danforth Avenue and the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) Danforth Garage at 1627 Danforth Avenue.

The purpose of the Danforth Garage Master Planning Study is to create a master plan for the site accommodating the needs of three anchor tenants including TTC, the Toronto Police Service (TPS) and the Toronto Public Library (TPL), as well as the needs of the local community. The study is being led by CreateTO, City Planning and the City’s Real Estate Services division (the Project Team) in collaboration with a Technical Working Group which includes the Project Team, the site’s three anchor tenants as well as other key staff from the City.

The master plan will be informed by comprehensive community input and will be consistent with the policy framework created through the Danforth Avenue Planning Study. Community consultation is a crucial component of this study.

The Project Team held the first Community Meeting on July 17, 2018 to introduce the Danforth Garage Master Planning Study, the Project Team and the Consultant Team as well as presented and sought feedback on the Draft Guiding Principles for the development of the site and the site analysis.
