Banner for June 5 event

This virtual event aims to provide a platform for a public discussion on the pro forma project inspired by the Institute of Southern Georgian Bay’s Affordable Housing Summit and Workshop last November. The project – a collaboration between Rental Rescue https://rentalrescue.ca/ the University of Toronto (UofT), and TISGB, took place over the winter was partially supported through EllisDon.

The graduate student team from UofT, working closely with lecturer and advisor Bo Pelech, Rotman School of Management, and Krystal Valencia, Rental Rescue, researched what could be built on four sites – in Collingwood, Owen Sound, and Meaford – as-of-right, based on zoning bylaws. They produced a robust pro forma document that identified the costs related to developing a multi-unit purpose-built rental building on each site and identified the cost savings by using modular building techniques vs traditional stick-built structures.  They also identified the funding shortfalls and how local investors though a community bond with several tranches could assist in the financing.

Regional scale plays an important role in increasing the availability of affordable units. We’re getting closer to understanding the numbers for Getting to Affordable Housing.

Participate in this community conversation, learn about 6 key strategies for increasing the supply of affordable housing units, and discuss what we should be doing in our communities!
