As part of an ongoing initiative to address housing issues, Montgomery Sisam Architects has been re-engaged by the City of Toronto to design modular affordable housing for six new distinct sites[2] to provide better long-term housing for those experiencing homelessness.

The plan includes 398 new self-contained units across six distinct sites in Toronto…With these six new sites, Montgomery Sisam hopes to push the boundaries of what affordable housing typology looks like, with modular buildings striving for a site-specific quality that resonates with their respective neighbourhoods. Plans have evolved based on earlier counterparts, further improving quality of living and dwelling flow, including:

The Modular Housing Phase 2 plan was initiated in direct response to COVID-19 to relieve pressure on the shelter system and create safe, permanent housing solutions for its most marginalized residents.

With plans to expand even further, Phase 2 also included 12 additional sites under consideration for future phases of the Rapid Housing Initiative.
