Alexandra Park Revitalization
Toronto Community Housing is going beyond bricks and mortar to build clean, safe homes for our residents while creating vibrant communities where people can thrive.
By working together with the City of Toronto, our residents, our neighbours, and our private development partners, we are transforming aging housing infrastructure to build better homes, better neighbourhoods, and a better Toronto for all.
Through a first-of-its-kind partnership with an independent housing co-operative, Toronto Community Housing is revitalizing Alexandra Park with new housing and new amenities that will connect this vibrant downtown community with the thriving neighbourhoods around it.
