This neighbourhood is changing – demographics are shifting, the community is aging, institutions are expanding, condos are going up, housing prices are rising, the Atkinson Co-op (formerly known as Alexandra Park Housing) is about to be revitalized and communities with long histories like the Kensington Market and Chinatown are transforming.

Scadding Court Community Centre, the Sanderson Library, the City of Toronto and the Alexandra Park Neighbourhood Learning Centre are starting to plan for these changes by exploring options for redeveloping our site. We are embarking on a long process to create a place for ourselves in this community’s future. We are exploring partnerships and options for how to give the city improved public assets so that we can expand and improve our services, and be proactive in addressing changing and emerging needs.

Neighbourhood development in the downtown core is inevitable. What’s important is that people get involved. Anyone who would like to be kept informed can join our Redevelopment Mailing List so that we can update you as the process unfolds.

Redevelopment and Revitalization Planning Study – Nov 27, 2012

Community Council Decision – Nov 2, 2011
On November 2nd, the Toronto and East York Community Council adopted an action item that asked City staff to initiate a planning study on the potential redevelopment of the Scadding Court Community Centre and Sanderson Library site.


Scadding Court is working with Toronto Public Library – Sanderson Branch, the City of Toronto, Alexandra Park Neighbourhood Learning Centre and others in the neighbourhood to explore how our site can be improved.

What was the Process?

(Oct 2010 – Feb 2011)
To look at what’s possible on our physical site.

Levitt Goodman Architects is doing this study, which will help us understand:

  • Space requirements for different services and programs;
  • Zoning issues;
  • Possible timelines for redevelopment;
  • Traffic and parking issues;
  • Economic models for different development options;
  • Community consultation planning;
  • How to create an Urban Agriculture Strategy as part of redevelopment;

A report on this study will be in February, 2011. It will include information to be gathered through community consultations in January and an e-survey for residents and neighbourhood stakeholders to tell us what is important for the future. Together, all of this information will help us develop a longer-term strategy for the next steps of the redevelopment.

The intent was after the completion of the feasibility study, to start to look at what things cost. The product of this second phase was intended to be a business plan and a cashflow analysis.

SCCC will have to make decisions about how to move forward. A big part of this is doing more community consultations to make sure that our direction reflects what people want, while participating on two City-division-led committees.

Anyone who would like to be kept informed can join our redevelopment listserve so that we can update you as the process unfolds.
