Feb 23,2023 Longtime midtown Toronto tenants fear proposed condos will price them out of their neighbourhood
3-tower condo complex could be coming to Yonge and Eglinton area
More than 120 tenants in a midtown apartment building say they’re worried they’ll be forced out if the city approves a new development application in one of Toronto’s most desirable neighbourhoods.
They live at 55 Brownlow Ave., a mid-rise building just a block west of Mount Pleasant Road and Eglinton Avenue East that’s been targeted for redevelopment. That means they’ll have to move once the developer’s application is approved, likely within the next couple of years.
“Some of the tenants have lived in this building for over 50 years, and a lot of those people are [on] fixed incomes,” said Megan Kee, a tenant who’s helping to organize residents.
