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.

Background:

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.

At this time, City Council will be asked to adopt confidential recommendations by the City Solicitor and release specific confidential information about the application.

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.
