LEF purchased two properties on Weston Road, at 1240 and the other at 1246 Weston Road.
What stage of development is the project in now?
LEF has purchased two properties on Weston Road, at 1240 and the other at 1246 Weston Road. We are currently in the very early stages of planning for what we intend to do with those properties, but our hope is to develop a community centred hub with streetscapes, community space and services as well as a new home for our organization.
Why are you holding virtual discussions with those residents and business' from ward 5/Mount Dennis Neighbourhood?
LEF is a long standing member of the community and our mission and core values centre around that community we hold so dear. We want to hear from our neighbours, what they would like to see developed or remain the same in this vibrant community.
What ways I can participate in the planning phase of the project?
1. Participate in the first event is being held on March 9, 2021 from 6:30PM-8:00PM. Visit the event page for more info here:
2. Fill out and submit our consultation survey here:
The Learning Enrichment Foundation (LEF) has been part of the Mount Dennis neighbourhood community for over 40 years. Recently, LEF purchased two properties on Weston Road, at 1240 and the other at 1246 Weston Road with hopes to redevelop and one day call our new home.
Our project envisions a multi-use building, offering a vibrant streetscape including both the ground level and the first few floors as community space. Above that, we’ll be building affordable residences, many of which will have access to much needed supports through other community partners. We are in the early stages of our project and are working to develop initial concept plans to submit to the City of Toronto.
