Toronto Community Housing reaches the 30,000 milestone in capital repair projects
Our Capital Repairs Tracker shows as that July 31st, Toronto Community Housing has surpassed the 30,000 capital repair projects milestone in our $2.6-billion 10-year capital repair plan. The more than 30,000 projects that we have completed since launching the capital repair program in 2013 include:
- 1.8 million square feet of roofing
- 256 new furnaces and boilers in 181 buildings
- Refurbishment of 5,500 balconies
- New windows for 7,500 homes
- 145 new or refurbished elevators in 88 buildings
- 15,200 kitchen and bathroom renovations
Although less than 20 per cent of the total required repairs have been completed, there are already significant improvements in building conditions and quality of life for tenants. There have been 80 per cent fewer reports of major service disruptions to the Client Care Centre compared with one year ago across the portfolio.
The City of Toronto has worked with us to secure one-third of the $2.6 billion required to fix our aging infrastructure. By the end of this year, Toronto Community Housing will have invested over $622 million toward capital repair projects.
