Donway Covenant United Church – Site Redevelopment
As the “Don Mills Residents Inc” (DMRI) mentioned in their Spring issue, a development proposal for this site is currently under consideration. In addition to a new church facility, their development partner, Options for Homes, will provide more affordable housing to the Don Mills community by offering their down payment assistance program. Options is a not-for-profit company that endeavors to develop high quality condos with its building partner Deltera of the Tridel Group of Companies.
In addition to providing the Church with a more modern and efficient building they also plan to contribute to the expansion of the surrounding public park.
It will consist of:
• 4-6 storeys
• around 240 residential units
• Underground residential parking spaces
• Parkland dedication
• A variety of unit sizes for all households
A formal application has not yet been submitted to the City. The Church and Options are in the process of meeting with the immediate neighbours to discuss in detail what they are considering. It might take 18-24 months until the official site plan amendment is presented and accepted by the City council.
