At least we can be relatively happy with city council. This meeting notice came from Rob Read on the Lexiconjury list:
Planning application for: 76 Wychwood Avenue, The Wychwood Barns
The subject 1.9 hectare site is owned by the City of Toronto and currently contains five vacant TTC Car Barns. The site has frontages on Wychwood Avenue, Benson Avenue and Christie Street.
The applicant proposes the adaptive reuse of 4 of the TTC Car Barns in the context of a proposed public park. The project aims to provide affordable space for artists and environmental initiatives.
The four barns would accommodate a range of uses including 26 affordable artist live/work units, artists studios, multi-purpose areas, administration spaces, rehearsal space, a greenhouse, an exterior sheltered garden, and a community bake oven.
The remainder of the property is to be used as a public park to be designed by City parks staff in consultation with the local community.
