Seaton House Shelter Redevelopment George St Neighbourhood Revitalization

Seaton House, a 543-bed City-operated emergency shelter for men located at 339 George Street, is in critical need of redevelopment due to the building's aging condition and its challenges in providing appropriate emergency shelter programs. Shelter, Support and Housing Administration (SSHA)and Long-Term Care Homes & Services (LTCHS) are partnering to recommend an innovative project that responds to community need and addresses both the need to redevelop Seaton House and the need for a long-term care home in downtown Toronto. The divisions
are recommending the co-locationof services in a new facility on George Street to more effectively address the needs of both short-term homeless men and an aging vulnerable population. 
At its meeting of November 30, 2009 City Council gave the General Manager of SSHA the authority to negotiate a public interest partnership with Spike/KMAI to  redevelop Seaton House along with adjacent properties to the south. Those negotiations were not successful.
