Description

Affordable housing is on the tip of every Torontonian’s tongue. Why wait for developers and city officials to figure it out? Let’s do it ourselves. Now ‘40% More Housing!’ looks at ways to accomplish affordable housing through the City’s largest group of landowners and landlords; the citizens of Toronto. Nearly 40% of dwellings in Toronto are single family homes on properties with the functional capacity for more units. An increased use of these properties, as well as the 250km of laneways across the city, has the potential to create 400,000 new homes & rental units. Now 40% more housing! proposes new development strategies for these properties and presents innovative and affordable designs that provide fast, low-scale, affordable housing alternatives to condos.

You can be a developer! Visit us during the Festival to see laneway house and addition models, prefabrication strategies, housing ideas, floor plans, diagrams, videos and more information on how to create a more affordable Toronto housing market.
