This will probably be my last Gardiner East post before the decision goes to City Council next week on June 10th. But I have such good news that I need to share it with you all.
This morning 14 “CityBuilders” came together for the first time in support of removing the elevated Gardiner East and replacing it with a surface boulevard. They are real estate developers, investors, and other prominent business leaders in the city. And they sent a letter this morning to every single Toronto City Councillor outlining their position.
I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to see this happen, so I’d like to call out each and every member of the CityBuilders. They are (in alphabetical order):
- Castlepoint Numa
- Cityzen Development Corporation
- Context Development
- Continental Ventures
- Daniels Corporation
- Distillery Historical District
- Dream Unlimited Corporation
- Greybrook Capital and Greybrook Realty Partners
- Kerbel Group Inc.
- Manulife Real Estate
- QQE 162
- Streetcar Developments
- Tridel Group of Corporations
These are some of Toronto’s most important city builders and I am sure this will get the attention of both Mayor John Tory and the rest of City Council.
If you haven’t yet signed the Gardiner East petition that Stephen and I started, please do so by clicking here.
Happy Friday 🙂
