WHAT ARE LANEWAY SUITES?

Laneway suites are secondary dwellings constructed behind traditional street-facing homes on lots abutting a public laneway. Laneway suites enhance the quality of affordable rental housing in the city while intensifying existing neighbourhoods, utilizing existing infrastructure, and animating underused urban space. They serve as great alternatives to basement apartments because they offer superior quality of space and the main house remains relatively undisturbed.
