  1. Hi, I’m a local resident in the final stages of a Masters Degree in Building Science at Ryerson. My undergrad is in architecture and I have about 15 years experience in the areas of construction/design/project management. I’ve been unable to attend meeting to this point because they always seem to fall on nights where I have class, but I’d be happy to try and connect and see what services I may be able to provide on a volunteer basis, particularly as it relates to the building. If building assessments have been done, I could review the findings and make any comments etc.. that might be pertinent. I may also be able to help re: construction estimates, feasibility, etc..Or, if additional assessment is required of the building, perhaps I could assist with that. Finally, I worked on a fairly extensive report last year related to the Project Neutral plan and have quite a bit of information relative to demographics of the neighbourhood, etc…

    I’ll try and attend the next meeting, but if there’s something I can do ahead of time, please let me know.

  2. Unfortunately, I cannot attend tonight’s meeting but I would like to send my feedback to the appropriate JCP contacts. Could you please provide an email address.

  3. Hi, I’m a web solution developer in the Junction, and wouldn’t mind helping you out with the website part of this project.

  4. Hi there – I’m a planner in the neighbourhood with over 8 years of experience in policy, urban design and public consultation. I also work closely with the city’s development and professional contractor community. I would be interested in attending your next meeting. Please add my contact to your database.

  5. I’m a neighbour and would like to figure out how I might be able to best contribute to this effort; however, I’ve been unable to get to meetings to date. I’d love to speak with someone in person about what skills are desired/what gaps need to be filled and how I might plug in. This is a wonderful initiative and I know how much it has been a labour of love to this point! May the community take it up as our own and share both in the labour and the fruits of that labour (in the spirit of the little red hen).

    1. Hi Hannah.. you can contact me to have a chat.. it is pretty hard for us to coordinate people into the mix outside of meetings.. but there may be opportunities in the future. My email is lynnybee123 at gmail.com.

  6. I am writing to enquire whether plans for this site might include an artist run centre. I am a member of the Board of Directors of Mercer Union, a centre for contemporary art. We are one of the leading artist-run centres in Canada, and operate a gallery space as a charitable not-for-profit with free public programming serving artists from across Canada and internationally.

    Mercer Union is currently located in rented premises at 1286 Bloor Street West near Lansdowne, to which we moved in 2008 after a decade as the pioneering institution in what became the West Queen West art district. Although we are a small organization, we are proud of being at the frontier of contemporary art, and we are again at the epicentre of a growing and dynamic arts cluster in Bloordale. Our current lease expires in 2018 and we are looking for a sustainable and permanent new space of 3,500 to 5,000 square feet of street level space.

    We would like to explore opportunities to be part of the planning for this site and to see how we can invest the same transformative creative energy that we put into our other homes.
