Lifetime Developments has proposed a 14-storey and 17-storey luxury condo development at the intersection of King and Dufferin. The developer is proposing to build 703 luxury residential units and 10 retail units. Councillor Gord Perks has negotiated $1.9 million in Section 37 to be allocated towards a neighbourhood rental housing fund. Is this enough to address our current housing crisis. In Parkdale, tenants and local businesses are being priced out. Neighbourhood inequality is growing. Members and groups in the community are outraged by this proposal, and are organizing to say NO to this development.
Join your neighbours for a neighbourhood assembly to prepare a platform, sign up for public deputations, and start a letter-writing campaign for the upcoming Toronto East York Community Council (TEYCC) on November 14th, 2017, where City Planning is recommending to approve the rezoning application for 1182-1221 King St W. This is our chance speak as a community.
This is not Liberty Village. This is Parkdale. Let’s unite to say “Not in our Lifetime.”
Date: Thursday, November 9th
Time: 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
