Danforth Barns Master Planning Stage – stay tuned! (Coxwell/Danforth)

Thanks to DECA’s Visioning Committee for these important updates!

On February 1, 2018, City Council approved the Danforth Barns at 1627 Danforth Avenue for the location of a new consolidated 54 and 55 Police District facility.

DECA, in an ongoing effort to keep our community informed of important changes happening in the ‘hood is, with permission of CreateTO, posting their recent letter to the participants of the various consultations regarding the Danforth Barns site at Coxwell & Danforth as well as the discussion about the building for the TPS 54/55 divisions. (We blogged about the proposed changes previously here.)

This immense site, larger than the Honest Ed’s site at Bathurst & Bloor St. will shortly enter its Master Planning Stage. Overseen by CreateTO, many City of Toronto agencies among them the Library, the TTC and the TPS, along with the community, will be involved with this innovative multi-use project. We look forward to being part of the process of seeing this project take shape in our community!

Stay tuned – when the community consultations begin, we will share the dates/times/locations with you!

CreateTO letter, March 15, 2017:
