First “garage conversion” to garden suite application lands at City Hall

Conversion of exiting garages and other outbuildings to garden suites will become a common sight in Toronto soon.

And last week the first application for such a build arrived at City Hall.

At 201 Medland Street, in The Junction, a garage conversion will soon take shape.

In many cases, the existing garage can give the homeowner relief from normally-required setbacks, and/or can make the buildable area for the garden suite larger than normally allowed.
