The Pacific Av. & Dundas St. W. LANE NORTH On the condo site, what could have been. A real Toronto example.

 

 

 

 

Below the orange area represents the area of the condo lot that could have been requested to be ceded or transferred to the city as community benefit by the developers.

 

Wagstaff lane, ┬álike Jackson Place is a laneway street, both are dead ends right now, yet Jackson Place was a pass thru created by the property owner allowing it for decades in the 60’s though 70’s. After which it was blocked off.

Now with a large condo development in Junction terms reading its domination of the N E corner, Jackson Place looks it’s chance to come to life and bring community commerce and a better public lane walk to the Junction.

 

Wagstaff lane has some ugly parts just as Jackson Place has. Yet it has become a place of activity for the community, with great stand and talk, huge indoor coffee and craft beer spaces. It is probably Toronto’s best place to meet and greet with cars right now.

All it’s missing is a reasonably priced restaurant.

The Junction with some fight could have fought for this strip of land for the community. Here in anticipation from Mr Perks that having the developer cede or incorporate the right of way to the community can be done, it has been done in many other wards by other toronto elected council members.
