Part­ner Ralph Gian­none presents ULI Tour of Don Mills. “Don Mills was planned Mack­lin Han­cock, an award-win­ning urban plan­ner, as a self-sup­port­ing “new town” that was Canada’s answer to the Levit­towns south of the bor­der. It was built between 1952 and 1965 on 835 hectares (2,062 acres) of land between the west and east Don Riv­er val­leys. Indus­try, com­merce, and major roads were arranged to be acces­si­ble but insu­lat­ed from res­i­den­tial areas.” More infor­ma­tion on the events can be found here.
