Homes, gas, food—the price of everything in this city is up. But finally, after decades of lip service and NIMBYism, real change is afoot. In November, the city adopted inclusionary zoning, a policy tool that requires new condos near major transit stations to make a portion of their units affordable. The sites shown here are just some of the projects under way, many of them offering mental health supports, food-security programs and other social services. The tally is 10,000 units—and counting. Together, these developments represent a crucial step in making sure every Torontonian has a place to rest their head.
