Tracking proposed new large-scale residential developments

There are more than half a dozen proposed large-scale residential developments in Ainslie Wood and Westdale, at various stages of planning and approval. We are working to keep track of the proposals and their status with City Hall so that AWWCA members and other neighbours know what’s being proposed and planned. We welcome any additions or updates.

See the Proposed new large residential developments page.
