Root, root, root for the homes team?

North Toronto Post - - News -

When Toronto de­vel­oper Trea­sure Hill Homes pur­chased a por­tion of the De La Salle Col­lege cam­pus three years ago for rede­vel­op­ment, the lo­cal coun­cil­lor and res­i­dents were quick on the draw to en­sure cer­tain his­tor­i­cal fea­tures lo­cated on the prop­erty would be pre­served. Now, af­ter years of con­sul­ta­tion and back and forths with City of Toronto plan­ning staff and the com­mu­nity, con­struc­tion is fi­nally un­der­way on the 150-year-old cam­pus. The site will see 19 four-storey town­houses con­structed in an L shape sur­round­ing the sports field. A por­tion of the site will in­clude an open area for a play­ing field, run­ning track and other recre­ational uses. The his­toric gate­keeper’s house and stone gates will be pre­served else­where on the prop­erty.

THREE YEARS IN THE MAK­ING Con­tro­versy sur­round­ing the rede­vel­op­ment of this his­toric site dates back to 2014.
