Investing in capital renewal at 410 McCowan Rd.
Toronto Community Housing recently hosted Mayor John Tory, Deputy Mayor Ana Bailão and Deputy Mayor Glenn De Baeremaeker at 410 McCowan Road, where they viewed the major capital repair work underway in the community. At the February 26 media event, TCHC board member Colin Lynch thanked the City for supporting TCHC’s 2018 capital repair plan of $300 million—a record level of investment that is enabling the company to accelerate its efforts to repair its housing stock and improve living conditions for tenants.
Reporters and guests toured one of the 14 townhomes currently being refurbished with new cladding, kitchens, bathrooms, flooring and ceilings. Similar repairs will begin on an additional 10 townhomes this summer. Tenants of the14 townhomes have been temporarily moved into other TCHC homes while the repairs are done and are scheduled to return before the end of the year.
