After awarding itself additional density, the City is moving ahead with more Regent Park redevelopment. Lots of demolition happened during the past 2 months, to make way for Regent Park Phase 2 (which includes the new community centre). In mid Dec 2010, many mature trees were cut down, and stucco (toxic?) carefully scraped off the townhouses (mid Dec). Demolition started again in mid January and all the townhouses on Sackville Green, including those fronting Shuter St, were gone in 10 days.
The original Regent Park included 5 award-winning high-rises, built in 1958. The 14 storey tower at 63 Belshaw Place is currently being demolished. 14 Blevins Place is supposed to be renovated. The other 3 buildings are also slated for demolition: 15 Belshaw Place, 42 Blevins Place and 605 Whiteside Place.
