Former school site set for housing

The former Corpus Christi school site has gained approval from both Toronto and East York Community Council and City Council for transformation into a new residential neighbourhood. The plans also call for a new street, which will run between Edgewood and Hemlock Avenues.

The development, proposed by Urbancorp along with two other similar projects in Riverdale and Leslieville, will see 30 semi-detached and two detached houses built on the site. Three will face onto Hemlock, with the rest fronting on the new public street.

As part of the project, 12 trees will be removed, while all others will remain. A number of remaining trees will fall inside tree protection zones.

The builder is responsible for the cost of installing new utilities when the new road is built. The plan is to also build geothermal heating and cooling infrastructure for all the residences in the project, underneath the road.
