I used to live literally across the street from this institution.

To be clear, the application does not affect the Sunflower House Child Care Center at all. It is proposed to be build directly to the south of the existing four-story building that is set back from Dunn Avenue. There is nothing but a parking lot gate there now.

Seems like a good use of space to me, though I would have lamented the loss of afternoon light for my garden

Toronto-based hospital network commits land to building affordable housing

KELLY GRANT HEALTH REPORTER
PUBLISHED SEPTEMBER 16, 2019

The largest academic hospital in Canada is planning to offer a radical new treatment for its neediest patients: a place to live.

The University Health Network (UHN) in downtown Toronto has committed a plot of land worth nearly $10-million to a unique affordable-housing project designed to ease overcrowding at the network’s two acute-care hospitals.

I hope they do remember to have outdoor space, even people in care homes need to be outside some times.
