Join us at this information session to learn more about laneway housing and how it can affect Parkdale! Speakers: Co-founder of Lanescape, Andrew Sorbara and Evergreen group will give a presentation on laneway housing with a Q&A at the end.
The City of Toronto is considering Laneway Suites (housing). A laneway house is a smaller, detached home located where the garage would normally go on a single-family lot.
Vancouver, Ottawa and Halifax already allow this type of housing. There are over 300 KM of laneways in the city. Allowing housing in our laneways would create many more rental housing units.
