Two midtown apartment buildings currently being utilized as emergency homeless housing will be vacated this week, the City of Toronto confirmed.

The complexes have been used to house up to 150 homeless residents since May, as part of the city's plan to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in homeless shelters.

According to CP24, the buildings will be demolished due to a leasing agreement with the developer.

Residents of the area are reportedly frustrated and fear an uptick in crime, and although Toronto police have not confirmed or denied an uptick in crime in the area, police have confirmed that used heroin needles have been found in the area.

The city has since brought forward measures in an attempt to reduce any potential crime, including addiction supports and round-the-clock security.
