Relationship building

Junction Commons Project (JCP) members have in the past year met with organizations aligned with JCP’s pillars – health, food, arts and community – who are interested in being a major tenant in the building. As a result, JCP is delighted to have found an enthusiastic potential partner in The Four Villages Community Health Centre. Funding is not yet secure, but we are all hopeful this relationship takes us further along a wonderful path for the Junction.

GREAT news for community hubs in Ontario

Earlier this month the Province released a report on community hubs in Ontario. You can find it at http://www.ontario.ca/page/community-hubs. The report is an action plan outlining recommendations for the creation of hubs, opportunities to foster healthy and socially supportive communities in Ontario.

JCP and Four Villages, together with several community partners, have penned a letter of support to the Province thanking Premier Kathleen Wynne and community hubs special advisor Karen Pitre for providing this framework and for recognizing that community hubs have a place in enriching the lives of Ontarians. We believe a larger expression of support will show the province we have the drive and will in the Junction to make a community hub a reality.

We continue to strongly believe that together we will make a community hub in the Junction happen, and many lives will be better for it.

Stay tuned, stay with us.

See you in the hood.

Warm regards,

Indoor Public Space Blog Reviews our April 16th – Junction Commons Townhall

[ It’s great when other people do such a good job of reviewing our events. Thank you Matthew for the review and for introducing us to your Foundation for Indoor Public Spaces. Our organizations share many aims. ]

[ Reprinted from the Indoor Public Space blog]

by Matthew Lie-Paehlke

On Wednesday April 16, I attended a townhall meeting about the ‘Junction Commons,’ a proposed community space on the site of a vacant police station in the Junction neighbourhood of Toronto. A volunteer task force has been developing a vision of the Junction Commons, collaboratively, over the past 18 months. Even as some members have come and gone, the idea has carried itself along. The current vision for the site is a building which contains accessible public space for events, programs and socializing with one floor of revenue-generating rental space that will cover the costs of the entire building.

The Junction Commons task force won a Trillium grant to hire Urbanmetrics and ERA architects to complete a feasibility study. The big news at the recent Town Hall was that the study (which should be available on the JCP website soon) found that it would be possible to renovate the building to create both community space and income-generating rental space. The study also concluded that the rental income would be sufficient to cover the building’s maintenance and staffing costs and pay off a bank loan for the renovations (app. $3.5 million). Because it would be difficult to cover the costs of purchasing the property outright and still maintain sufficient public space, the task force is currently negotiating a long-term, low-cost (like $1 a year low) lease from the City of Toronto.

The task force envisions the Junction Commons as a community hub. Referring to earlier research on Community Hubs, the JCP task force described a community hub as a space which intertwines the following objectives: service delivery, place-making and community building. The Junction Commons will be a place where people can obtain services, a space that’s comfortable and attractive, and a space where local people can gather, get to know one another and pursue collective objectives. The JCP task force is seeking to make the Junction Commons financially sustainable, so that it won’t be reliant on government funding – a valid concern in these times of global ‘austerity.’

Early renderings of potential designs, produced by Ryerson planning students, were on display at the Town Hall. The task force has also held design charettes with local people throughout the neighbourhood in order to better understand their needs for the space. From the various activities, programs and events suggested in these charettes, the task force developed five ‘pillars’ of the Junction Commons:

ARTS – The Junction Commons will be a site for the discussion, production and experience of theatre, music and visual arts.

FOOD – The Junction Commons will be a place where people can come together to eat and cook. It will be equipped with a community kitchen and host a farmers’ market.

HEALTH – The Junction Commons will be a space for exercise, dance, yoga and a site for the provision of health services. The University Health Network was mentioned as a possible anchor tenant.

COMMUNITY BUILDING – The Junction Commons will be a space for both casual conversations and community meetings.

LOCAL EXCHANGE – The presence of so many different people in the Junction Commons makes it an ideal site for local development and learning. It will be an excellent site for co-working, public lectures, skills exchanges, sharing and local trade.

At the outset, creating a commons requires real initiative and effort from one or more individuals, but as the idea and project grow and more people are drawn in by the vision, the work can be distributed. Hundreds of people have come to JCP meetings and townhalls. Thousands have signed a petition to delay the sale of the property until the completion of the feasability study. It would be difficult, if not impossible, for a for-profit company to produce a space like this. It will be possible to fund the public space within the Junction Commons from rental income, in part, thanks to the efforts of so many volunteers. Eighteen months of planning, design and outreach by a private development company would be extremely expensive — as it stands however, the JCP will only have to cover the cost of the physical renovations. The JCP is currently looking for new volunteers to step up and help to shoulder some of the load. The task force has formed a non-profit organization and will soon be electing a volunteer board. If you live in the Junction – especially if you have legal, marketing or accounting experience – consider becoming a Junction Commoner and volunteering your time.

After the presentation of the feasibility study and the preliminary plans for the space, a member of the West Junction Historical Society took the stage and spoke passionately about the importance of open and accessible ‘third places‘ — spaces which are neither home nor work — in building a community. As access to schools and churches becomes more tightly controlled, it becomes harder and harder for ordinary people to find places to gather and discuss community initiatives. The self-sustaining, community-driven model developed by the Junction Commons Project is one possible solution to this problem.

Town Hall Meeting

Town hall, Nov. 25, 2013

Junction Commons Project

Nov. 25 saw yet another instance of community engagement and interest in the Junction Commons Project (JCP) as an enthusiastic crowd of close to 75 people came out to a town hall, held at 3030 Dundas West.

The room was a mix of both people who are already actively following the JCP and those who found out about it more recently. Some had been to previous public meetings while others had participated in one of the neighbourhood charettes – creative brainstorming sessions – that took place in the Junction in November, to continue to gather ideas from local residents about what they want to see in the potential community hub on Mavety street, formerly a police station.

Several current organizing members of the project were on hand to answer questions (Lynn Bishop and Andrew Keenan), as well as two members of the consulting team putting together the JCP feasibility study (Peter Thoma of urbanMetrics, and Graeme Stewart from ERA Architects).

The room full of participants each received a small clicker they used to answer multiple-choice questions previously posted in the JCP online survey.  Thoma walked the crowd through the survey, projected on a large screen on stage. Answers from the crowd for each question were displayed alongside results from the online survey. A series of questions aimed at unearthing what services are high on the wish list of those who live in the community, what kinds of things they would like to see in the Commons if it goes ahead and also how they see it being funded. As with the charettes, many people seem to be looking for things like a community kitchen, green-friendly and socially responsible services, art programs and services that encourage community building and active participation.

Those who turned out on Nov. 25 were treated to a glimpse inside the old police station on Mavety as Stewart projected photos of a walk through of the site he and colleagues did earlier in the fall. The state of the heating and water infrastructure is still of some concern. But Stewart talked also about how open and full of light some areas are and how the set up of the different floors could allow for both services and offices. Among other things, the feasibility study is looking at refurbishing the current building versus demolition and a completely new construction.

Discussion and debate was encouraged during the town hall, with many questions from attendees focusing on concerns about how to make the hub financially sustainable, and how to keep any fees affordable to as many members of the community as possible.  The project is in the midst of the feasibility study to figure out what the options and costs for renovations to the site would be, so it is still too early to know what the first roster of social services or commercial tenants could look like. Many people expressed a keen desire to have the city offer direct financial support for the project in some way – with the feasibility study still ongoing, what costs would be and what support government support could materialize remains to be seen.

Townhall Meeting on November 25th

An architect’s perspective on the current 209 Mavety site

In case you weren’t one of the 72 people who saw Graeme Stewart’s presentation at the Junction Townhall …

As part of ongoing research and analysis of the Junction Commons Project site at 209 Mavety St, consultant Graeme Stewart of ERA Architects recently presented details of the site’s history at the JCP’s November town hall.

In the 1940s and ‘50s the block surrounded by Keele, Dundas, Annette, and Mavety was redesigned to function as a public services precinct for the Junction, complete with police, fire, and postal facilities. The Junction Commons Project seeks to carry forward this legacy in the form of a facility serving a broad range of public and community amenities for the Junction neighbourhood.

The building at 209 Maverty, formerly Toronto Police Station Division 11, has been vacant since 2011. It is a two-storey-plus-basement facility designed by Toronto-based architecture firm, Craig & Madill made up of partners, Henry Harrison Madill (1889-1988) and James H. Craig. Both men played a leading role in the University of Toronto’s faculty of architecture from the 1920s through the ‘50s. Other examples of Craig & Madill’s work include understated modernist buildings such as the Grand & Toy offices in Don Mills, and the YMCA Etobicoke. (See the full list at end of this article)

The building’s design is a good example of the civic modernism characteristic of many of Toronto’s post-war public schools, libraries, and other municipal buildings. It is a strongly rhythmic design in a varied material palette of flagstone, glass, brick, marble, concrete, and terrazzo.

The 25,974-sq.-ft. building was declared surplus by the City of Toronto, but the transfer of the property to Build Toronto for disposal or sale has been deferred to allow the Junction Commons Project to propose other community uses for the site.

ERA and urbanMetrics have been hired by the Junction Commons Project to develop a feasibility study that will help identify multiple ways the building can be reconfigured. Because it was designed as a police station, the challenge is to re-purpose the space so it fits the needs of the community and the yet-to-be-determined project budget. ERA and urbanMetrics are analyzing spaces such as the jail cells, offices, common areas, and exterior spaces such as the courtyard, to begin to define a set of productive constraints and opportunities.

The project represents an exciting challenge in the adaptive reuse of a modernist building, a practice we are only beginning to see today, as Toronto’s inventory of modernist architecture becomes available for reconsideration.
