Friends,

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

6 Noble Street , OMB Pre-hearing – December 12, 2017

Posted on November 22, 2017

 


6 Noble Street 

OMB Pre-Hearing

 Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 10 AM

Ontario Municipal Board, 16th Floor, 655 Bay Street

(2 blocks north of Dundas St. W.).


 I have an important update on the 6 Noble St. development application.

The developer of 6 Noble St. originally proposed a 14-storey mixed-use building comprised of commercial space located on portions of the first and second floors, 174 residential units, and two levels of underground parking.

As you might know, the developer appealed their application to the Ontario Municipal Board. A pre-hearing conference has been scheduled for Tuesday, December 12th at 10 AM.   The purpose of the pre-hearing is to identify anyone who wishes to attend at the OMB Hearing, either as a party or as a participant, in opposition to or in support of the application.  If you have concerns with the development proposal, your involvement at this stage of the process is important.

City Planning staff and the developer have also continued to work to find a suitable proposal for the site.  The ‘without prejudice’ discussions between City staff and the developer allows for exploration of possible changes that might result in an agreement without offers or counter offers being made public. I am not involved in these discussions.

City Legal have informed me that the developer will be making a revised ‘with prejudice’ settlement offer very soon. A ‘with prejudice’ settlement offer will be a public document. If available, it will be shared at the December 12th pre-hearing.

It is my practice to share details of any ‘with prejudice’ settlement offer prior to it being considered by City Council either through email or, if time permits, at a community meeting.

At this time, the developer has agreed not to seek a Hearing date at the pre-hearing conference. Instead, they will seek a second pre-hearing in April, 2018 which could be converted into a settlement hearing if a settlement is reached.

It is important that anyone with an interest in this matter attend the OMB pre-hearing on Tuesday Dec 12th, notwithstanding the fact that no Hearing date is to be scheduled. This will allow community members to be made parties or participants and be a part of any proceeding should a settlement fail to occur.

Information on party/participant status is available at: https://goo.gl/NCiktY 

If you are interested in attending the OMB prehearing but have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact my office for assistance.   I will be available to meet at 9:30 AM outside of the prehearing conference room at the OMB to review the process of the OMB prehearing. Please contact my office if you are interested.

 

Sincerely,

Gord Perks

City Councillor

Ward 14, Parkdale-High Park
