41 Wabash Avenue Development Update

Posted on November 20, 2018

Councillor Perks Office has been advised that a Re-Zoning application has been filed for 41 Wabash Avenue.

The information filed with the city will be available on-line at, input the address and click on Supporting Documentation.

Councillor Perks has a regular practice of requesting that developers meet with community members to review the developer’s intentions and community comments prior to submitting a development application. The developer can then amend their proposal prior to their formal submission to the city. This practice has been well received and has helped to shape development in Ward 14.

This developer met with the community in January 2018. They have now submitted an application that proposes to retain the existing 3-storey building on the subject site and add 4-storey residential townhouses to the rear. The existing building will be converted to residential uses. In total, the proposal includes 16 new residential units.

City Planning staff are reviewing the application.

City Planning will hold a statutory community meeting which will include an opportunity for community input early in the new year. City Planning staff and Councillor Perks Office will provide details on this meeting once information is available.

A preliminary report on the zoning by-law amendment application will be submitted to Community Council in the near future.

Contact our office at, should you have further questions.

Update on 6 Noble Street

Posted on July 25, 2018

At the July 2018 Toronto City Council approved directing City Staff to settle the 6 Noble OMB appeal and accept the revised 8-storey building containing 101 units, ground floor non-residential space and two levels of below-grade parking on the lands located at 6 Noble Street.

Although I understand the significance of the Pia Bouman Dance Studio and the positive impact that it has on many lives, the 6 Noble Development revised application did not leave room for the dance studio.

I met with the developer and representatives of the dance school many times to encourage a space within this application for the dance school. Unfortunately no agreement was reached.

There are some community wins in this Staff Report. The applicant has decreased the height of the building from 51 m to 32 m by using 24 Noble as a guide. Additionally, there is a $350,000 financial contribution towards affordable housing within Ward 14.

The full report is available on-line at .
