Population of the ward to double
A quick summary of the developments either under construction or proposed for the Ward.
(updated Nov. 11, 2018)
Metalworks : phase 1 (complete)= 133 units (including 12 townhouses) total (Phases 1 through 5) = 605 estimated 36 townhouses total (former Woods plant #1)
71 Wyndham St. S. @14 stories (approved) = 140 apartments (former City View Pools and DIYODE Makers Club)
120 Huron (proposed) = 86 apartments + 96 townhouses (former Northern Rubber/Crompton/Chemtura)
143 Morris (under construction) = 20 townhouses (former Biltmore Hats)
200 Beverly (proposed) 800-1500 units, townhouses and apartments – breakdown unknown (former IMICO)
69 Huron – unknown but if built at the same density of Metalworks a significant addition (former Woods plant #2&3)
66 Duke St. (proposed) 22 apartment units
Totals = 853 apartments + 152 townhouses + adding about 1000 for 200 Beverly = 1983 + units. If you assume an average of 2 people per unit the total population increase for the ward is just under 4000 which would double the current ward population of 3,991 (2016 census).
These proposed density increases have the potential to impact traffic, parking, noise, wind and shadow. These issues are already a concern. TWRA will be advocating for a comprehensive traffic plan for the ward.
