Ashcroft’s Slides from 10 March Meeting

Ashcroft Homes has posted the slides from the 10 March community meeting, which show the preliminary site plans for the Soeurs de la Visitation convent (114 Richmond Road).  Please click here to see the slides (20MB PDF).

Ashcroft has also set up a blog related to the development, which can be found here.

And as always, click here for the HICG’s ever-growing collection of information on the development.



  1. It seems to me that the spaces highlighted on the slides titled: “creating community space” are largely roadways. The pictures in subsequent slides show people strolling along these spaces, but it seems that in reality they will be taken up primarily by cars.

  2. My wife and I have lived at 475 Kensington ave. since 1969, and along will all our neighbors — and I do mean all — we are in favour of having the convent site declared an historic site. Such designation will ensure that development of the site is strictly controlled. The development proposed by Ashcroft would devastate the entire surrounding are and do irrepairable damage to the character of Westboro. The traffic, water, sewer consequences of putting 700 plus housing units on this site would be a nightmare. To offer a site of this signifigance to the profit motives of a developer would be a monumental travesty.
