Friends,

I would like to inform you of a meeting about a proposed redevelopment at the southeast corner of Bloor and Dundas, at 2280 Dundas St W. At my request the developer has agreed to have this meeting before designing their full proposal, which gives us a chance to shape their application. This will be the first of several meetings over the coming months.

Many of you were part of a previous conversation about the potential for this site, creating a community framework during the preparation of the Bloor-Dundas Avenue Study in 2009, which can be found here: https://www1.toronto.ca/city_of_toronto/city_planning/community_planning/files/pdf/bloordundas_final_rep_full.pdf. The Bloor-Dundas area is detailed under “Opportunity Site 8” and may contain useful insight for this upcoming meeting.

35 Wabash Update

Posted on March 6, 2017

At the latest Toronto and East York Community Council Meeting, the Construction Staging Report for 35 Wabash Avenue was amended and approved. The Report can be viewed on-line at:  http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2017.TE22.47

The Construction Staging plan was originally reviewed by the 35 Wabash Community Working Group with Councillor Perks and City Planning Staff when it was submitted by the developer in October, 2016.

TEYCC has approved the closure of the south sidewalk and curb lane on Wabash Avenue for a period of 20 months to accommodate the building of a 4-storey residential condominium building with one level of underground parking at 35 Wabash Avenue.

To enable construction, the applicant had requested that 5.8 metres of the south curb lane and sidewalk on Wabash Avenue flanking the site be closed and pedestrians be redirected into a protected covered walk way within the closed south curb lane. The original plan would have resulted in the removal of 12 permit parking spaces on the south side of Wabash Avenue.  The request was amended at TEYCC to tighten the application to impact 6 permit parking spaces

Further information on the 35 Wabash development is available on-line at: http://app.toronto.ca/DevelopmentApplications/associatedApplicationsList.do?action=init&folderRsn=3792517&isCofASearch=false

As always, my office welcomes your comments and question son this or any other Ward 14 or City-related matter.
