Community Living Toronto (CLTO) and Tridel are delighted to announce their collaboration on the Lawson redevelopment at 1710–1710 Ellesmere Road in Scarborough. The proposal seeks to create a community that sets the standard for organizations and home builders to collaborate to satisfy the housing needs of all individuals.
The Lawson redevelopment proposal aims to construct affordable rental, independent living, assisted living, and market condominium accommodations. The proposed development consists of five structures spanning in height from 28 to 52 stories and containing approximately 2,200 residential units, including 280 rental units. CLTO-supported individuals with intellectual disabilities will have the opportunity to reside in this inclusive community.
“Developing vibrant neighborhoods where people with intellectual disabilities are included from the start is more important than ever,” says Community Living Toronto’s chief executive officer, Brad Saunders. Community Living Toronto continues to create unique, supportive spaces for individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families, as evidenced by today’s partnership announcement.
With a focus on leadership, innovation, and respect for the diverse human needs of the community, this proposal seeks to create a space that is more than just buildings, but an exemplar of exceptional service that is genuine, forward-thinking, and equitable – a safe and welcoming environment that fosters belonging, trust, and exceptional experiences for all.
Jim Ritchie, president of Tridel, is pleased with the partnership with Community Living Toronto. This proposed redevelopment contributes to the Greater Toronto Area’s accommodation requirements. We are thrilled to contribute our expertise in delivering high-quality residences and to support the development of an innovative and welcoming community.”
The proposed mixed tenure of residential suites (condo and rental), retail and commercial uses, a new public park, Privately Owned Public Spaces (POPS), new program and community uses, an enhanced public realm, energy efficient and sustainable features, accessibility features, and support for pedestrian and active transportation movements with appropriate connections to the community will positively impact the city and community.
The partnership between Community Living Toronto and Tridel in relation to the redevelopment of Lawson is a significant move forward in creating communities of belonging that serve all members of the community.
