Starlight Investments Participates in ThorncliffeGrows Project
Toronto – May 21, 2020 – This past Saturday, Starlight Investments (“Starlight”) participated in the ThorncliffeGrows project at our property located at 71, 75, and 79 Thorncliffe Park Drive in Toronto, Ontario (the “Property”).
“Starlight is honoured to be recognized by CFAA for Renovation of the Year. The award received is a testament of Starlight’s commitment to its capital expenditure program and to the strength of our Canadian Multi-Family Asset Management Team. Congratulations to all of the recipients at the event,” stated Daniel Drimmer, Starlight’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
The new ThorncliffeGrows project aims to provide fresh, local food to the community in Thorncliffe Park and tackle current and longer-term food access issues by growing fresh produce anywhere that allows for it. The project brings an “edible landscape” to the residents of nine tower communities in Thorncliffe Park, including the Property, through two urban garden sites and fruit trees planted among the towers. The new trees will allow residents to pick their own fruits and vegetables, and the garden and orchard will serve as a place for educational programs where residents can learn skills including fruit pruning, planting, maintenance and harvesting. The new project is a collaboration of summerlunch+ and the Thorncliffe Park Urban Farmers.
