The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) has released a comprehensive listing of affordable housing along the length of Weston Road. Many of the landmark high-rise buildings in Weston are included along with their history, focus and occupancy numbers. Among the interesting facts contained in the document are:
- the privately owned buildings at 1765-75 Weston Road have received $1.8 million in ‘interest free forgivable loans’ (essentially a gift) in order to fix up the place.
- a 10-storey apartment building is planned for Wilby Crescent (on the site of the old Vehicle Licence Office).
- Metrolinx has contributed $1.1 million towards developing a creative/cultural hub on the site of the former GO Station parking lot.
