Citywide Laneway Suites Consultation
Mon, 5 December 2016, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EST
Contribute your ideas to shape the future of laneway suites in Toronto!
Join us to discuss the role of laneways and the potential for laneway suites in our city. Following three short presentations, we will explore the opportunities for laneway suites through a creative design workshop using clay. Feedback received will assist in the development of resident-informed design guidelines to support the City of Toronto in moving forward with laneway suites.
What are laneway suites and why are they important?
Laneway suites take advantage of underused laneway spaces, like garages and parking pads, to construct additional housing, sensitively increasing housing supply while respecting the existing character of our neighbourhoods.
