6 Noble Street: Update on OMB Pre-Hearing

Posted on January 13, 2018

Friends,

The first OMB pre-hearing conference on the 6 Noble Street development application was held on December12th, 2017.

The developer advised that they have submitted a Settlement Offer to the City with revision to the original application.

The Settlement Offer is now posted on line at:

http://app.toronto.ca/DevelopmentApplications/associatedApplicationsList.do?action=init&folderRsn=4023767&isCofASearch=false&isTlabSearch=false

Of note, revisions include the height of the building which has been reduced from 14 storeys (51.3 m including mechanical penthouse) to 8 storeys (32.3 m including mechanical penthouse); and no non-residential uses are proposed. The non-residential gross floor area and the live-work units have been replaced with townhouse units.

City Planning along with a number of City departments will now review the Settlement Offer and provide their feedback.

My office will organize a meeting in 2018 to review the Settlement Offer with the community. City Planning staff and the developer will be invited to attend this meeting.

City Planning staff will then provide their recommendations on the Settlement Offer. If they recommend approval of the Settlement Offer, a report will be submitted to the February 21st Toronto and East York Community Council. If they do not recommend approval of the settlement offer, City Staff will attend the next pre-hearing scheduled for May 22 at 10 AM at the OMB, 655 Bay St, 16th floor.

Please watch for Community Meeting Notice early in 2018. As always, my office is available to answer questions and hear your concerns.

Sincerely,
Gord Perks
City Councillor
Ward 14, Parkdale-High Park

Laneway suites study: community consultation meeting at City Hall – November 30, 2017

Posted on November 20, 2017

 

The City is holding a community consultation meeting at City Hall where you can learn more about the City-led study on laneway suites. The study, named Changing Lanes, is a City of Toronto initiative with the goal of considering the opportunity to allow and regulate laneway suites on the numerous laneways across the Toronto and Easy York areas of the City. A laneway suite is a self-contained residential unit located on the same lot as a detached house, semi-detached house or townhouse, and generally located in the rear yard next to a laneway. Laneway suites are smaller in scale and completely detached from the main house on the lot. If you want to learn more about the Changing Lanes initiative, ask questions, and share your comments, please attend the meeting on November 30, 2017 at 6:30 PM at City Hall, 100 Queen Street West in the Council Chambers.
