Woodsworth Housing Co-operative is located in the historic St. Lawrence Neighbourhood in Toronto, close to St. Lawrence Market. We are walking distance of shops, services, three schools, community centre and pool, public library and parks. Bus routes go to subway stations and it is a short walk to the King streetcar and to Yonge Street.
Woodsworth Co-op has a mix of housing units. There is an eight story mid rise apartment building on Wilton Street with 122 units. The top floor (9th) houses commonspace – a large multi-prpose room and one of our two laundryrooms. Some units have direct street access from Wilton Street. The medium rise building has distinctive half-moon windows on alternate storeys.
And there are 72 townhouses on George Street South, Albert Franck Place and Frederick Street. The townhouses include stacked and "mews" units (garage on the ground floor). Unit sizes range from 1 – 4 bedrooms.
We are a federally funded not-for-profit co-op, developed by the Co-op Housing Federation of Toronto (CHFT). Our community is a mix of rent-geared-to-income and market-rent members. The co-op has a wide variety of committees and a weekly newsletter. General members' meetings are typically held five times a year.
