2720 Dundas St W Rezoning Proposal

Posted on August 24, 2017

A developer, 2720 Dundas Junction Inc., has put in an application for rezoning. The application is for a 12-storey mixed-use building with 15,035 square metres of floor area, containing 173 residential units. A below grade parking lot is to contain 93 parking spaces with additional bicycle parking on the ground floor.

While the Councillor encourages holding a pre-application meeting, the developer has submitted its application without holding one. Planning staff will be drafting a Preliminary Report on this application to be released in the coming months. As this project moves forward there will be a community meeting held by Councillor Perks and Planning staff. The date for that meeting will be shared as it becomes available.

Comments can be directed toward my office at councillor_perks@toronto.ca or the planner on file, Barry Brooks at (416) 392-1316 or bbrooks@toronto.ca

More information on the 2720 Dundas St W application can be found on the Toronto Development Application website here.

421 Roncesvalles Update

Posted on August 24, 2017

Friends,

Toronto City Council has passed By-law No. 716-2017, designating 421 Roncesvalles Avenue as a site of heritage or cultural value/interest. This designation came into effect as of August 23, 2017. Located at the south east corner of Roncesvalles and Howard Park, the building was originally constructed as a branch of the Dominion Bank by Toronto’s great architect and urban designer John Lyle in 1914.

Furthermore, the owner, Propellor Developments Inc, has submitted an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board. The nature of the appeal is based on a non-decision from City Council within a 120-day period of the applications submission. There is no set hearing date, however, you can track the case on the OMB website here.

We will provide you with further information as it becomes available to us.

City of Toronto Creates Local Appeal Body to Expedite Land Use Hearings

Posted on May 1, 2017

The City of Toronto has established an independent local appeal body to provide quick and efficient hearings on appeals of land use decisions made by the Committee of Adjustment.

On May 3, the Toronto Local Appeal Body (TLAB) will replace the function of the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) pertaining to minor variance and consent applications. TLAB is an independent, quasi-judicial tribunal established by authority of the City of Toronto Act and provincial government legislation.

“Toronto residents have long waited for a fair and reasonable process to replace the OMB regarding appeals of Committee of Adjustment decisions,” said Councillor David Shiner (Ward 24 Willowdale), Chair of the Planning and Growth Management Committee. “We’ve worked hard to bring local planning matters back to the City’s jurisdiction with the formation of a Toronto Local Appeal Body whose members live in Toronto and understand Toronto’s unique character and communities. As well we’re offering a mediation process where concerns can be discussed before an appeal hearing without the need for expensive professional consultants.”

Most TLAB meetings and hearings will be held in the Toronto Public Library building located at 40 Orchardview Boulevard off Yonge Street just north of Eglinton Avenue. Hearings may be held in person, by telephone or video conferencing, or in written form.

Minor variance applications fall under Section 45 of the Planning Act. For example, a homeowner may request a minor variance to allow for the installation of a garden shed that does not meet the minimum setback requirements from a property boundary.

Consent applications fall under Section 53 of the Planning Act. Typically, they involve requests to divide a property into separate lots or to add adjacent land to an existing lot.

57 Brock Avenue Staff Direction Report

Posted on February 21, 2017

Friends,

On Wednesday, February 22nd, a Request for Direction Report: 57 Brock Avenue, prepared by City Planning staff, will be introduced at Toronto and East York Community Council (TEYCC). Information on this request can be found here: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2017.TE22.10

The rezoning application proposes to redevelop the site currently occupied by a Beer Store and parking lot with a 7-storey residential building containing 106 units. A total of 73 parking spaces will be provided in two levels at and above grade, including 16 visitor spaces, 108 bicycle spaces, and 22 short-term bicycle spaces. The building will have a height of 23.45 metres (28.9 to the top of the mechanical penthouse).

Information on the application is available on-line at: http://app.toronto.ca/DevelopmentApplications/associatedApplicationsList.do?action=init&folderRsn=3982741&isCofASearch=false, Supporting Documentation.

This report will recommend that City Council direct the City Solicitor to oppose the appeal of the 57 Brock Avenue Development application at the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) hearing but to also work with the owner to enter into a settlement should the opportunity arise. I will be supporting the Direction Report at TEYCC.

Community meetings have been held about this application. At both meetings, local residents shared concerns with the proposed development.

Remaining concerns raised by the community include:

  1. The overall height, mass, and density of the proposal
  2. Its ability to integrate with the surrounding neighbourhood visually and otherwise, including its proximity to the street
  3. Deficiency of outdoor amenity space and green space
  4. Interactions with pedestrians and the public realm and its effects on the street level
  5. Effects on nearby traffic and parking and servicing
  6. Amount and location of short term bicycle parking on streets
  7. Lack of linearity with front sight lines of adjacent housing

No hearing date has yet been scheduled for the OMB. My office will communicate any further information as it becomes available.
