InsideToronto on Humber Hospital sale

Weston residents are upset about the potential sale of the Humber River Regional Hospital, says InsideToronto, in a long piece.

According to Dominik Kurek, the city will fight to own the land covered by an old deed, which could thwart an easy sale of the site. The hospital is suing the city for the right to sell

The councillor hosted the meeting to update the community on the court process, saying the city intends to stake its claim to the 1.25-acre portion of the hospital’s 11 acres of land located on Church Street. The Town of Weston had sold the 1.25-acre parcel to the hospital in 1948.

Laura Albanese, however, was “grilled” by the audience for the province’s part.

One thought on “InsideToronto on Humber Hospital sale”

  1. Interesting legal question before the courts. I would not be opposed to single family infill homes being built at the site, which is consistent with character of the community surrounding it. However, there is probably more value to the property to be used as an institutional use such as long term care or high density which is unlikely to make that ever happen. I think what happened in 1948 really is irrelevant and what should drive the discussion is what is the best use for the property at present. We are not living in 1948 anymore and the needs of the community now are much different then they were then. Those questions need to be fully discussed in a public forum.
