Residents to get input into Kodak lands after all

Metrolinx, according to the The Star, is backtracking and allowing residents some input into what will happen at the derelict Kodak lands, which are to be turned into a rail yard:

Metrolinx has agreed to open debate on the fate of the former Kodak manufacturing site just months before the provincial agency tenders a multibillion-dollar contract to build a storage facility for the Crosstown LRT there.

It’s a major turnaround for Metrolinx, which has previously resisted requests by community activists to intensify development on the 23-hectare brownfield at Eglinton Ave. W. and Black Creek Dr., and include multi-storey commercial buildings that could lead to local jobs.

  1. Hi Adam

    I am not sure if you already know, but I would like to inform you about the Photographic Museum of Ontario and our efforts to try and purchase the building from Metrolinx (or work with them) to convert the old Kodak Building # 9 into the new home for the museum.

    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

    Sincerely;
