Update on 111 Pacific Avenue, 255 Glenlake Avenue and 66 Oakmount Road
The development application – 111 Pacific Avenue, 255 Glenlake Avenue and 66 Oakmount Road – is on the December 17/18, 2019 City Council Agenda.
You can view the agenda item “CC13.3 111 Pacific Avenue, 255 Glenlake Avenue and 66 Oakmount Road – Zoning By-law Amendment Application – Request for Direction” at: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2019.CC13.3
At this time, City Council will be asked to adopt confidential instructions by the City Solicitor and release specific confidential information about the application.
This application proposes to develop purpose-built rental dwelling units in two blocks of townhouses and two apartment buildings. The proposed townhouse blocks include 3 storey townhouses. One apartment building has a proposed tower height of 33 storeys including a 3 storey base and the other apartment building has a proposed tower height of 29 storeys including an 8 storey base (“Development”) on the lands municipally known as 111 Pacific Avenue, 255 Glenlake Avenue and 66 Oakmount Road (“Subject Lands”).
The lands are currently developed with three rental apartment buildings ranging in height from 12 to 23 storeys. The proposal would add 768 new rental units to the existing 750 rental units for a total of 1,518 dwelling units. The proposed development would maintain all existing on-site rental dwelling units. The proposal also includes 450 square metres of retail floor space, which would result in a total floor area of approximately 113,100 square metres.
The owner appealed the Zoning By-law Amendment application to the Ontario Municipal Board (“OMB”) (now the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (“LPAT”)) citing City Council’s failure to make a decision within the prescribed time frames set out in the Planning Act.
Update on 35, 41-63, 65 and 95 High Park Avenue and 66 and 102-116 Pacific Avenue
The development application – 35, 41-63, 65 and 95 High Park Avenue and 66 and 102-116 Pacific Avenue – is on the December 17/18, 2019 City Council Agenda.
You can view the agenda item: ” CC13.10 35, 41-63, 65 and 95 High Park Avenue and 66 and 102-116 Pacific Avenue – Request for Direction Regarding Local Planning Appeal Tribunal Hearing” at: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2019.CC13.10
At this time, City Council will be asked to adopt confidential recommendations by the City Solicitor and release specific confidential information about the application.
On December 28, 2016, the City received an application to amend the Official Plan and Zoning By-law for 35, 41-63, 65 and 95 High Park Avenue and 66 and 102-116 Pacific Avenue to facilitate an infill development for these properties (the “Original Application”).
The applicant appealed City Council’s neglect or failure to make a decision on its application for Zoning By-law Amendment (the “Appeal”) to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (the “LPAT”) on August 29, 2017.
The applicant revised the Original Application on September 19, 2019 (the “Revised Proposal”). The applicant further revised its proposal on December 4, 2019 (the “Further Revised Proposal”).
The purpose of this report is to request further instructions for the LPAT hearing that is scheduled to commence January 27, 2020. The City Solicitor requires direction on this matter in litigation.
The Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) has recently made a decision about the development proposal at 2978 Dundas Street West (at Pacific Avenue).
The proposal, approved by City Council in July 2018, is for an 8-storey building with a height of 24.3m (26.2m with mechanical penthouse), the partial eighth storey containing indoor amenity space and access to outdoor rooftop amenity space. The proposed building would contain retail at grade and 80 residential units above, and would require the demolition of 7 existing rental units which are proposed to be replaced in the new building.
City Council’s approval was appealed to the LPAT by a local community group. On December 3rd, 2019 the LPAT found the appeal was without merit and thus it was dismissed. The development proposal will now move forward as passed by City Council in July 2018.
On December 9th, 2019, a pre-application meeting was held for a potential development at 3194-3206 Dundas Street West, the current site of High Park Animal Hospital, Church of God Worship Centre and building at 3206.
The meeting was an opportunity for the developer to share their intentions with the community and City Planning staff prior to a formal submission of their application. I have attached a copy of their presentation. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AsSQsTAIkrE9g5geuzAJW0gRlEJCWw?e=W2nube
The developer has not yet filed any paperwork with the city but at the meeting presented plans for an 8-storey residential building.
Any comments or questions at this time should be directed to Councillor Perks’ Office at firstname.lastname@example.org and Carla Tsang, City Planner at Carla.email@example.com .
Please share this information with your neighbours.

The Zoning By-law Amendment application for 2442-2454 Bloor St West has been approved by the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT).
In April 2019, the developer, the City and all of the other parties to the appeal reached a settlement for a 12-storey building on site, which the LPAT approved in principle.
The Final Order, however, was held, pending satisfaction of a number of conditions.
Those conditions are set out in Appendix A of the Confidential Report from the City Solicitor adopted at the June 2018 meeting of City Council:
All outstanding conditions have now been met and the LPAT has issued the Final Order- see attached.
All supporting documentation for the Zoning By-law Amendment application, including architectural plans and technical reports, is available online at the City’s Application Information Centre, under “Supporting Documentation”: http://app.toronto.ca/AIC/index.do?folderRsn=ONqRrnyM7oImjnFtWMiVlA%3D%3D
A site plan application has been submitted to City Planning and remains under review.

Friends, after receiving several emails regarding an upcoming meeting I believe that the following clarification is necessary.
A Case Management Conference taking place at the Ontario Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) this Friday, November 22nd is regarding OPA 419, the Official Plan Amendment adding a Site and Area Specific Policy within the High Park Apartment Neighbourhood Area.
This Official Plan Amendment guides change and compatible infill development in the area. It also redesignates lands located at 21 High Park Avenue from Apartment Neighbourhoods to Parks and Open Space Areas on Maps 17 and 18 of the Official Plan.
OPA 419 was approved by City Council in June, 2018 (http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2018.EY31.4). It was then appealed to the LPAT.
If you are interested, you can submit comments in writing to: Ben Bath, Case Coordinator/Planner Tribunals Ontario – Environment and Land Division, (Ben.Bath@ontario.ca).
Please note that a Case Management Conference Submission Form is available on the Tribunal’s website (https://elto.gov.on.ca/tribunals/lpat/forms) and should accompany all written submissions described above.
