Tower Renewal is a program to drive broad environmental, social, economic, and cultural change by improving Toronto's concrete apartment towers and the neighbourhoods that surround them.
Consultations are being held for the Residential Apartment Commercial (RAC) Zoning by the City of Toronto, United Way, Centre for Urban Growth & Renewal. The zoning will set rules for potential new small scale commercial and community uses of selected apartment neighbourhoods. Check out the community consultation dates.
Financing Available! City Council approved a pilot program to support residential property owners in undertaking energy efficiency & water conservation improvements. A $10 million envelope is available for qualifying multi-residential properties over the 3 year pilot. Program information including a sample of the Property Owner Agreement (PDF) and Program application forms are now available.
This study follows over 40 buildings participating in the STEP Program to document the benefits of aspects of the STEP program, including on-site assessment, building performance analysis (using utility data) and benchmarking. The report tracks what building owners and managers learn about their buildings and shows how STEP can be used to improve building performance.
This report covers the seven steps in the project: the selection of 10 field test buildings, stakeholder engagement, review of existing conditions, identification and review of strategic options, implementation & monitoring of strategies, post-implementation review and analysis and developing a waste diversion plan.
