What is ‘Building Answers’?

There’s a lot of construction in the Greater Toronto Area. Cranes rise above the skyline, graders dot nearby development sites, and many people are seeing their neighbourhoods change, often drastically, around them. 

Why are so many condominiums going up instead of single family houses? Will there be any new parks or other public spaces? Do developers contribute to public transit and are they building environmentally friendly housing? Are developers building housing people can afford in the GTA? How do you involve communities in your development process?

These are some of the most common questions you’ve asked us. Through this website and public campaign, we are aiming to answer them openly, honestly and factually. Our goal is to provide you with accurate information on how the building and land development industry is working with residents, communities and the governments to build a livable GTA for all. 

We want to hear from you. If you have more questions for us about how the building and development industry operates in the GTA, send them to us via our Ask a Question page and we’ll be happy to answer.
