Released: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 21:00:00 EST
Since 2005, one of the world's largest urban redevelopment projects has been underway in downtown Toronto. Regent Park is Canada's oldest social housing project. The plan is to raze and rebuild the project's 2083 existing subsidized units, while adding 5400 market units, transforming 69-acres of social housing into a mixed-income, mixed-use neighbourhood. Almost a decade in, how is the rebuild going? The Agenda convenes a panel to discuss the Regent Park revitalization and the mixed-use model behind it.
