Laneway housing has revolutionized cities like Vancouver and it’s here, now in Toronto. If you’re not familiar with laneway housing, the concept allows the use of the many laneways, which are typically used to access garages and other spaces, and allows for housing development along the laneway. Laneway housing is important to Toronto as it allows for both gentle densification and meets the requirements of the Official Plan.
Savvy developers and seasoned investors are already starting to take advantage of laneway opportunities. Learn how to invest strategically and plan for this massive change to the Toronto housing landscape!
We have an expert in the industry, Daniel Hall, coming to teach us all the critical elements of laneway housing. During this meetup we’ll answer questions like:
– How do I avoid development fees – I heard the can cost upwards of $30k?
– How can I avoid going to the Committee of Adjustments, adding months to my planning process?
– What’s the fastest way to build a laneway house? Are there spec builds out there?
– How can I identify a potential laneway property? What are the zoning rules?
– I heard that you need to be near a fire hydrant, is that true?
– What’s the best way to get services like water, sewage, and electricity to my laneway house?
– What are the parking requirements for a laneway suite?
You don’t want to miss this opportunity to learn about laneway housing in Toronto!
