Brick framed window in ‘pothole paradise’ in downtown Toronto

A frame of brick fireplace is seen on the ground at a new home for a homeless man in downtown Montreal, Saturday, Feb. 3, 2021.

It’s the latest in a series of new homes for homeless men to be built in Toronto as city officials look to reduce homelessness.

(Sean Kilpatrick/Canadian Press) The Toronto-based company, Brick House Properties, said it’s in the process of acquiring a building in the city’s east end for the family.

It has a history of building affordable homes in communities around the GTA, including Scarborough and Scarborough-Agincourt, which has the highest number of homeless people in Canada.

“It’s been really exciting to see the community and the neighbourhood really respond to our vision,” co-owner and director of operations Scott Smith said.

The project is one of many to be constructed by the company, which is based in Vancouver.
