An example of a TCU cube.

Another TCU Cube coming to Somerset St. E. The TC United development company has applied to demolish the house at 296 Somerset E. and build a three storey, 5 unit building in its place.  There will be four residential units with four bedrooms each, plus a first floor commercial space.  There will be no off-street parking.  The building is alleged to be “compatible with existing land use patterns so that the residential character of a neighbourhood is maintained.”

On October 16, the staff and children of Bettye Hyde Co-operative Early Learning Centre received a visit from Mayor Jim Watson who read a proclamation in honour of Childcare Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day. Sandy Hill certainly appreciates the presence of childcare centres in our neighbourhood.
