1540 – 1550 Bloor St W Development Update: LPAT Case Management Conference

I am writing to update you on the first video Case Management Conference held today at the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) for 1540-1550 Bloor Street West development application. This application, at the N/W corner of Bloor and Dundas Sts West, proposes to amend the Zoning By-law to allow a 25-storey mixed-use building with commercial uses on the ground floor and residential uses above.

The owner of the site at 1540-1550 Bloor Street West has appealed its Zoning Amendment application to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT), formerly called the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB).

A Case Management conference was held today by video.

The outcome of the Case Management Conference was the scheduling of the next Case Management Conference- February 10, 2021 and a 10-day hearing July 5-16th, 2021.

A City Solicitor attended the conference to advise that City Planning staff will submit a Request for Directions Report with recommendations to December Toronto East York Community Council (TEYCC). The Directions Report will be based on a an evaluation of the application by City Planning staff including input received from the community at a pre-application and a virtual community meeting, as well as communications by email and phone.

My office will continue to update the community as new information becomes available.
