In his time so far at the City, he has worked on various complex development applications in the Central Waterfront area and in East York, including the development at 1-7 Yonge Street (former Toronto Star site) within the Lower Yonge Precinct Plan area and new mid-rise buildings on Danforth Avenue, Gerrard Street East, and Queen Street East. In addition, Daniel managed a planning study of Danforth Avenue, between Coxwell and Victoria Park Avenues, and is working with his colleague George Pantazis on a more focused study of built form and public realm potential at the area of Danforth Avenue and Main Street, an important transit hub. Prior to joining the City, Daniel worked at the City of Vaughan for 4 years, where he managed various development applications and helped to create the City of Vaughan's first Telecommunication Tower protocol.


Daniel earned his Master's degree in Environmental Studies and Urban Planning from York University and is a member of the Ontario Professional Planners Institute. Daniel looks forward to continuing his career at the City of Toronto's City Planning Division as a Senior Planner in SIPA's Strategic Initiatives Unit, beginning in January, 2019.

Join us in this advanced course where we will drill down to explore how to weigh risk alongside levels of service. In this interactive workshop, participants will discover how to assess risks related to climate change (and other factors) and how to use risk to prioritize assets for lifecycle activities. Through a case study, participants will explore how to determine current levels of service for various asset categories and identify how to establish clear priorities for proposing levels of service that are achievable and affordable, now and into the future.

Cost: $105+HST (light lunch included)
