Station Gallery Receives Funding for Renovations

Station Gallery Receives Funding for Renovations

A nearly $340,000 investment was announced today by the Town of Whitby and Government of Canada for the Station Gallery. The funding will support renovations that will add more creative space and make more arts programs available to residents.

Station Gallery – a not-for-profit public art gallery – currently offers more than 500 art classes, exhibitions, family art days and community events for residents of all ages and abilities to enjoy. In 2016, the gallery saw more than 47,000 visitors, a number which continues to grow.

The local and federal funding supports the:
* repair and expansion of Station Gallery’s existing deck by approximately 750 square feet, enabling more children to create art in an outdoor classroom setting; * construction of a weather-proof awning to cover the deck area, permitting use of the space for additional months of the year; and, * transformation of the Gallery’s lower level (currently a storage area) into a multi-purpose, accessible studio space, which will house a print and pottery studio.
The new and upgraded spaces allows Station Gallery to offer up to an additional 10,000 hours of programming and events – providing more children, students and program participants the chance to grow and express their love of art.

JULY 2017 TREB MID-MONTH STATISTICS July 20, 2017 – Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 2,670 residential transactions through TREB’s MLS® System during the first 14 days of July 2017. This result was down 39.3 per cent compared to the same period in 2016. The greatest year-over-year decline in sales was noted for the detached market segment. The lowest annual rate of decline was noted for the condominium apartment market segment. The number of new listings entered into the system was up by 6.5 per cent year-over-year. While still up compared to last year, the annual rate of growth for new listings has declined markedly, from over 40 per cent in mid-May, and over 20 per cent in mid-June, to less than seven per cent in mid-July. With sales down and new listings up year-over-year, the market was better supplied compared to last year. This translated into a more moderate 7.4 per cent annual growth rate for the average selling price, which was $760,356 for all home types combined. When breaking down average price growth by geography, an interesting dichotomy has developed between the City of Toronto and the surrounding ‘905’ area code regions for some market segments. The annual growth rate for the average detached price in the ‘416’ area code was 12.1 per cent, compared to 2.7 per cent for the ‘905’ regions. The annual growth rate for the average condominium apartment price was 30.5 per cent in the ‘416’ area code versus 12.4 per cent in the surrounding ‘905’ regions.
