Make Way for LanewayProviding more housing options for the Greater Toronto Area

Publication - Oct. 23, 2015 - By Nithya Vijayakumar, Mike Collins-Williams

There is a lack of housing diversity in the Greater Toronto Area. In particular, affordable homes in walkable, amenity-rich urban neighbourhoods are in short supply.
