LANEWAY SUITES! Learn what it takes to build and invest in laneway homes!

Question: What’s our number one job as real estate investors??

Answer: **To put our money to its highest and best use!!**


With rising costs of property in Toronto, however, this is getting more and more difficult to do. Is the answer to look outside of Toronto for cheaper properties? No! As sophisticated investors, we know that along with lower prices comes increased risk. So what’s the answer? DENSIFICATION!!

Laneway housing in Toronto has been a LONG TIME COMING for us investors, and will allow us to maximize the returns on our properties. Laneway suites can offer some of the highest ROI in Toronto for existing landlords who already own freehold investment properties with a laneway (i.e. single family, duplex, triplex, fourplex, etc), where a unit which cost $[masked]k to build can be rented out for $2000 a month. That’s double the return of a condo.

Eldon Theodore, Partner at planning firm MHBC, will be joining us to discuss the opportunities and challenges around the activation and optimization of laneways through infill housing. We’ll discuss the benefits and shortfalls of the recent Laneway Suite Guidelines approved by City Council. We’ll run through real-life examples of applications to understand how to navigate this process!

Eldon Theodore is a Partner at MHBC with a dual specialization in planning and urban design where he has been practicing for 16 years. Eldon holds an Honours Bachelor Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Waterloo and a Masters in Urban Design Studies from the University of Toronto. Eldon is also a LEED Accredited Professional and has been trained under the National Charrette Institute System for conducting community charrettes.
