The Provincial government has taken the first steps to demolish the Foundry and we only have moments to act.
|Late in 2020, the Provincial government announced a number of Ministry Zoning Orders in the GTA. These allow developers to move ahead immediately on projects without any community consultation. The Foundry site was one of those locations. Until today it sat vacant, now there are construction crews on site that likely signal an impending demolition.|
CRBA Board Member, Ann Summers-Dossena, has been working on a project that would see the Foundry become a Music Performance and Community Centre. You can read more about the project here.
We firmly believe this project would bring incredible benefits to the community. From jobs to residences and simply keeping the building, this project would give Toronto’s musicians a beautiful place to call home.
We’re urging you to sign Spadina Fort-York MPP Chris Glover’s petition to give this site a fighting chance to survive and thrive for the benefit of all Ontarians.
