403 Keele Street: Community Consultation

The first official public consultation for the development proposal at 403 Keele Street (the former Canadian Tire gas station site) is taking place next Thursday, March 3 at 6:00 pm. The applicants are proposing a zoning change on the site to allow for a new 11-storey mixed-use building with commercial/retail uses on the ground floor and 216 dwelling units on the upper floors.  While the applicants held a pre-application meeting in the fall, this will be the first official meeting organized by City Planning.

Some residents have been in touch with our office as they are seeing online advertisements for a 5 storey residential project on Keele Street.  That is for the adjacent “Junction Square Condos” at 406-410 Keele Street (west side of Keele Street, at Vine Street).  While this building’s height and massing was approved in 2017, they have since re-applied for a zoning change with a new unit count (65) and changes to the parking and rooftop garden access.  These proposed changes still do not have zoning approval, however we do expect them to return to Council in the next couple of months.
