2019 Workshop Series – Session 1
January 30th, 2019 @ 7pm
Our workshops are a platform to educate professionals and homeowners on how to assess properties for compliance with the by-laws. They are also a forum to address questions about specific conditions, sites, and contemplated projects. The sessions provide a history of laneway housing in Toronto and an overview of the new by-law, using simple terms and diagrams. As a proverbial on-ramp to the process of realizing and understanding laneway suites, our workshops provide you with comprehensive insight, and train you on the basics of design and assessment for this exciting new housing typology.
We provide detailed information regarding:
- The History of Laneway housing
- Planning principles and the process of developing the by-laws
- As-of-right design examples, critical dimensions and example floor plans
- Financial schematics including value assessment, construction costing and potential income projections
- The step-by-step property assessment process and key requirements for conformance
As leading advocates throughout its development, we shed light on other unknown factors including property taxes, municipal servicing, fire fighting access, associated development charges and parking requirements (or lack thereof).
The intention of each workshop is to transcend a typical information session and rather provide the tools and understanding for you to know the by-laws intrinsically and assess any given property. Spots are limited to ensure a personalized presentation and valuable discussion period for all attendees. The hour-long presentation starts promptly at 7pm followed by a question period. Guests are invited to stay after the workshop to discuss high level details of their particular questions/situations.
The cost is $250+HST per person. Workshop fees are deducted from our services, should you chose to work with Lanescape for your laneway suite. Our sessions also offer certificates for structured continuing education hours with the OAA.
