Yesterday, the Toronto Community Housing Corporation announced the third phase of its Regent Park revitalization project. The proposed plan, which has yet to be approved by City Council, aims to refurbish the area around Blevins Place (this is what the area currently looks like). 

The proposal includes plans for a state-of-the-art recreation facility that includes a soccer field, which, according to the company’s press release, could be converted to a cricket pitch, a basketball court, and a new hockey rink (pictured above). The sporting facility will be funded by the MLSE Team Up Foundation, the charitable arm of Maple Leaf Sports Entertainment. In addition, the TCHC and its construction partner, the Daniels Corporation, plans to construct three new streets, 2,000 market-value condos, and 550 subsidized rental apartments. The organization hopes that these new will attract a mix of business to the area. A map of the entire project, including the four other phases of the project, can be seen below.

Projects like this take several years, and the whole area has been undergoing redevelopment since 2005, but one hopes that this turns out to be a successful project. [Toronto Community Housing via Torontoist]
